!!Viewings from Saturday 25th May!!

Barton House is a magnificent home, forming half of what was once the Agent of the Stoodleigh Estate’s house. Built in the late 19th Century (circa 1880), possibly designed by the architect of Stoodleigh Court, Ernest George, the property offers some fine architectural features, built in a Gothic style, the rooms enjoy high ceilings, picture rails and ornate coving.

The living space is complimented by three outbuildings which are believed to once have been the village dairy and offer up potential for additional accommodation – currently used as a gym, games room and additional storage.

The entrance hall provides access to the reception rooms, the family room has currently been claimed by the children providing a great space for keeping all the toys and games in one room – tidy up or just pull the door shut! The sitting room at the end of the hall remains a safe haven for adults, plenty of light being drawn in through large windows, and the wood burner keeping you nice and warm. My favourite room of the house is the study, a peaceful space, ideal for curling up in a chair and reading a book (or just having a sneaky Sunday afternoon snooze!).

The kitchen dining room is a great space. The flagstone floor and high ceiling really sets off the character of room. A large dining table sits comfortably in the dining area, the large window overlooks the sheltered courtyard outside. A breakfast bar offers sociable seating looking into the kitchen space, which is nicely finished with granite work surfaces, a suitably classic Belfast sink, an electric range and a dishwasher. To one corner is a walk in pantry and a rear lobby leads to a utility room and a cloakroom.

Stairs lead to the upper floors, but there is also a small basement, currently set up as a children’s playroom but would equally make a great wine cellar.

A most attractive winding staircase leads up to the first floor, a wide landing giving access to the principle bedroom with an en-suite shower room, and a far reaching view across surrounding countryside.

The hall turns to give access to another en-suite bedroom, a family bathroom and a further double bedroom. There is also a large walk-in airing cupboard.

The stairs continue to the second floor to a wide open landing, another quiet space to relax on the sofa, or a great space for a train set! A family bathroom serves the top floor, next to which is a well-proportioned double bedroom, again with a great view. The final bedroom holds quite a surprise; the room itself is a good double room with plenty of space for wardrobes; and an unassuming door steps down into most attractive vaulted room, currently used as an office, sitting room and occasional bedroom.

There is plenty of space in this house and there is further potential outside! You can’t have failed to notice the attractive verandah that fronts the old dairy rooms. This is a very useful space, and once had planning permission to convert into “domestic office/study”. There was also permission to build a large detached garage in the garden. The rear garden is fully enclosed and offers a perfectly sheltered area for children to play. A pretty courtyard offers a great barbeque area, and the vendors even have an outdoor bar!

Stoodleigh is a popular village with a good community spirit. There is a village Inn, aptly named "The Stoodleigh Inn" and a village hall for the regular village gatherings. The village cricket pitch has possibly the best views from any cricket pitch, and there a plenty of country walks right on the doorstep.

Approximately 5 miles from Tiverton, the property is ideally situated, with easy access to shops, educational and leisure facilities, road and rail networks.

The village of Bampton is also only a few miles away with its range of shops for day to day groceries, cafes, pubs and restaurants.

This is a great opportunity to secure a wonderful family home in an idyllic semi-rural setting.
