Slade Properties is an established family enterprise specialising in the concept and development of bespoke high quality homes throughout the beautiful East Devon area. Originally a traditional Dutch barn, Egremont Cross Barn has been carefully designed and converted to create a distinctive contemporary building, completed to a high standard throughout. It offers flexible and spacious accommodation, with a versatile layout designed to take advantage of the property’s situation and views.
The kitchen/living room has been carefully laid out to include fitted appliances and units – a reception space with double doors leads out onto a patio area, ideal for entertaining and enjoying the wonderful setting and views. On the ground floor, there are also two double bedrooms, one with an ensuite shower room, family bathroom and study or third bedroom. A staircase rises to the first floor and a large mezzanine area, which would make a wonderful reception space looking out over the adjoining farmland. A large loft /potential fourth bedroom has a wonderful triple aspect and countryside views. Outside, the property is approached over a tarmac driveway which provides ample space for turning and parking. The near level grounds have been gently landscaped with the lawn seamlessly flowing into the paddock that wraps around the house bound by hedges and banks. In total the property extends to about 0.3 acres.
Egremont Cross Barn is in a beautiful rural, yet easily accessible location on the outskirts of the hamlet of Luton. Payhembury, approximately 1 mile away, offers a community shop, Parish Church, public house, primary school and village hall and is supported by a thriving community with a wide range of clubs, groups and societies. The nearby village of Clyst Hydon provides further amenities and is home to the award winning Five Bells Inn.
The market town of Honiton lies to the east of the property and benefits from a range of independent shops and facilities, including a community hospital. The M5 motorway is within easy reach at junction 28, providing access to both the cathedral city of Exeter and Somerset’s county town of Taunton, both of which benefit from a main link rail link to London Paddington. There is an excellent range of facilities, including comprehensive and independent schools, along with Exeter University within close proximity. Bristol and Exeter International Airports provide a number of domestic and international flights.
The Blackdown Hills, designated an area of outstanding natural beauty, are situated west of the property and together with the surrounding area provide excellent opportunities for recreational activities. Within a short drive to the south, England’s first World Heritage Site, the Jurassic Coast, can be found with its glorious beaches and historic fishing villages.
