Langaton Barn in Lower Tale is a luxury barn conversion located in glorious East Devon countryside. The property retains the character of the older, existing building but has undergone an extensive refurbishment to create an exceptional modern home.
The home is detached and benefits from 4 bedrooms (2 ensuite), open plan kitchen/living areas, a double garage, a beautiful garden designed by a local artist, and high quality internal fixtures and fittings throughout.
Converted from a modern farm building, this unique single storey home features large expanses of glass and high ceilings in the main living space bathing the inside in natural light, whilst framing the expansive views over the surrounding countryside. The exterior of the house has been designed for a low maintenance quality feel, with aluminium frame windows and doors, a metal standing seam roof, colour impregnated render and cedar clad gables. On the inside, the highly insulated space is kept consistently fresh with stale warm air removed, heating the clean air coming in, with additional underfloor heating from the air source heat pump.
