A detached three bedroom barn conversion with outbuildings & stables. Set in just under 6 acres in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

Otter Springs is a handsome, detached barn conversion which was converted, we believe, in the mid-nineties from two barns which were then inter-connected via the reception hallway.

The property is of traditional construction with stone elevations under a slate roof and is delightfully positioned around a central paved courtyard.

The property was designed in such a way so as to take full advantage of the country outlook, and the principal rooms gain splendid westerly views over the valley to the typical Devon patchwork countryside in the distance.

The accommodation is well-presented and worthy of particular mention is the vaulted kitchen/breakfast room, and the vaulted sitting room with wood burning stove.

Otter Springs is situated on the rural fringes of the tiny hamlet of Rawridge, which itself nestles in the wide valley of the Otter, a conservation area designated The Blackdown Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Rawridge is about one mile from the pretty village of Upottery which has a popular public house, a pretty parish church and primary school.

The whole area is well-known for its beautiful country walks which emanate virtually from ones doorstep. The market town of Honiton which has a good range of shops, banks, sports centre, main line rail link to London (Waterloo) etc. lies some 5.5 miles to the west and some 17 miles beyond Honiton is Exeter, the country town of Devon which has a wider range of shops together with M5 access and international airport. The coast at Lyme Bay lies approximately 14.5 miles to the south and Taunton, the county town of Somerset where there is M5 access and express rail link to London (Paddington) lies some 12.5 miles to the north.

The property is approached from the lane over a driveway which leads to a rumbled pavier hard standing, which gives access to the detached double garage.

This building has potential for conversion into a small annexe, as we have been informed by the vendors that all the services are connected, subject to necessary planning consents being approved.

Adjoining this parking area is the yard, which is surrounded by the timber outbuildings. These comprise six stables, large workshop and several other stores, the dimensions of which can be ground on the floor plan.

To the south of the property is a paved courtyard with central fountain and loggia. This is a real suntrap and has lovely country views. There are two main areas of pasture, both of which have field shelters, and one has a spring fed pond which provides a beautiful natural area, and is a great haven for wildlife. There is also a third paddock with field shelter and small orchard.

One of the main features of Otter Springs is it location, and splendid views can be gained from the majority of the land over the wide valley to the countryside beyond.
