Winswood Barn is set in a peaceful and sheltered valley location with an attractive outlook across the Mully Brook to farm land beyond. The surrounding countryside is typical of the area with plunging valleys, open fields and woodland. The village of Burrington is about a mile from the property and has a small shop. The small town of Chulmleigh is about 3.5 miles and offers a further range of shops and amenities including schooling to secondary level. The larger towns of South Molton and Barnstaple are about 12 and 14 miles respectively, both offering a further range of amenities whilst the County Town of Exeter is about 26 miles.

The A377 that links Exeter and Barnstaple is about two miles from the property and the Exeter to Barnstaple (Tarka Line) railway line follows a similar route with the nearest station being about 3 miles at Kings Nympton Station.


Winswood Barn is a very highly appealing property set in an outstanding location. Originally a smaller cottage, the adjoining barn and and studio were skilfully converted and extended in 2015 to form what is now an outstanding country home. This stylish property has a superb outlook over its own gardens and land running down to the banks of the Mully Brook. The centrepiece is a superb vaulted oak-framed living room with another oak-framed garden room which takes full advantage of the lovely outlook across its own gardens and grounds.


The front door leads directly into the lower ground floor of the property and into the spacious HALL which is flanked by TWO DOUBLE BEDROOMS, one with a former inglenook fireplace and the other with a fitted bath. Off the hall is a SHOWER ROOM fitted with a modern suite.

Steps lead up from the hall into an impressive, green oak-framed LIVING ROOM with vaulted ceiling, oak flooring and wood burning stove. A wide opening leads into a stunning GARDEN ROOM, again of green oak-framed construction with floor to ceiling glazing with fine views and double doors to outside. Off the living room is the spacious KITCHEN/DINING ROOM with timber flooring and is fitted with a bespoke range of units with timber worktops over, Belfast sink and newly fitted Everhot range cooker. At one end is a wood-fired range cooker with adjacent corner unit with granite worktop over. Double doors lead to the outside decking and there is another door to the outside. At the end of the kitchen is a walk-in larder and CLOAKROOM.

From the living room a short flight of stairs lead to the FIRST FLOOR GALLERIED LANDING which leads to TWO FURTHER DOUBLE BEDROOMS with the MASTER BEDROOM having a fine outlook and an EN-SUITE BATHROOM fitted with a modern suite.


The property is approached directly off the quiet country lane that passes the rear of the property to a parking area alongside. A gateway leads into an area with a concrete plinth and a newly built, timber-framed GARAGE/WORKSHOP (19'8 x 12').

To the rear, overlooking the valley is an area of raised decking which leads down to the mainly lawned garden enclosed by post and rail fencing and with a fine outlook across the meadow to the Mully Brook that bisects the property. Across the river, accessed by a foot bridge, is a further area of attractive river meadow and pasture with a pond.

Set adjacent to the barn on the other side of the lane is an attractive and well-stocked orchard and vegetable garden.

In total the property extends to ABOUT 13 ACRES.
