Full Property Details

This historic, stone barn, one of a few and part of the original Craddock Farm is believed to date back to at least the 18th century and was converted by the farmer to a residence for his own occupation in 2002.

The accommodation is well proportioned with the farmhouse kitchen being the most used room, fitted in an oak style, with integral appliances, and ample space for dining or sitting round the table for a chat, overlooking the forecourt and established garden beyond. The sitting room and garden room enjoy the same outlook and the latter could be used as a home office or playroom, if required.

Upstairs, there are three bedrooms, the principal room particularly spacious with an en suite bathroom, and two smaller rooms and a family shower room, which could be made en suite by repositioning a door on the landing, if preferred. All the principal rooms enjoy views over the mature garden and the rolling countryside of the Culm Valley beyond and with no artificial light, the location is perfect for viewing the stars in the night sky.

Whilst very comfortable, with the original fixtures and fittings, it is fair to say that many would wish to update the accommodation to their own taste and make a fantastic home in a lovely location. The barn could also be extended as there is currently planning consent in place for a two storey extension, which can be viewed on the Mid Devon District Council Planning website, reference: 23/01660/HOUSE.

Miles Barn is approached via a five-bar gate leading to the generous parking area and paved courtyard garden in front of the barn with a sunny, southerly aspect. To the left there is plenty of lawn garden, well established with flower and shrub beds and two productive apple trees. Behind the barn, there is further parking for two cars in front of the large garage and workshop.

Craddock is an Anglo-Saxon word meaning 'amiable place' and that's what it is! More history: there is an old well, directly opposite Miles Barn, in the hedge, called St. Michael's Well, which is believed to relate to it's past.

Services: Mains electricity and water (metered). Private oil tank for central heating, external boiler. Private septic tank drainage, just in the neighbouring field.
Council Tax: Band D
Local Authority: Mid Devon District Council.
Tenure: Freehold.

Agent's notes: Miles Barn has an array of 21 photo voltaic (PV or solar) panels on the roof of the front elevation providing useful electricity and on a tariff for any excess that goes to the national grid. One of the panels is not connected but is in place for aesthetic purposes!

In addition, our client has a generator set up in the garage, in case of a power cut!

Miles Barn lies a short walk, 0.75 miles, from Ashill, with a village hall, chapel and popular pub, The Ashill Inn, serving delicious food.

Craddock lies approximately 1.5 miles from Uffculme, which has a good range of local amenities, including a popular primary school, and the renowned, Ofsted rated 'Outstanding' secondary school, Uffculme School. There is a local pub, a mini-market, doctors' surgery, veterinary practice and the Magelake hall and community playing fields. Regular bus services run through the village and Cullompton and Tiverton are a short drive away.
