Barnhayne, we understand was originally constructed from a former mid Nineteenth Century barn to a pleasing design and has been much improved by the current vendors.
The house now offers superbly presented, split level accommodation, with the ground floor providing four bedrooms, the master having an en-suite shower room and there is a separate family bathroom. The living accommodation is at first floor level and takes full advantage of some lovely views over the gardens and beyond to the surrounding countryside. The principal rooms all take full advantage of the views, particularly the first floor conservatory, which is accessed from the sitting room and has an adjoining balcony. uPVC double glazed windows are installed and there is oil fired radiator heating, as well as a multi fuel log burning stove fitted to the sitting room.
To the outside there are formal gardens and adjoining paddocks and from the top of the land there are magnificent views to the surrounding hills. There are also two sets of loose boxes and a garage/workshop.
The property is situated within walking distance of the popular East Devon Village of Colyton, which offers local amenities. Also nearby is the highly regarded Colyton Grammar School.
Leaving the Sid Valley via Sidford, proceed along the A3052 (Exeter-Lyme Regis road) in an easterly direction towards Lyme Regis for approximately five miles. Turn left, signposted Colyton and follow this road for approximately two and a half miles, turning right opposite a property called ‘Little Acre’. Continue, taking the first right into Ridgeway Lane (not signposted). Continue up this lane for approximately 0.2 of a mile, passing the old Reservoir on the left hand side and passing a property known as ‘The Stables’ on the right. Continue straight ahead and you will see a five bar gate, which is the entrance to Barnhayne.
