The Round House,Threshing Barn

Kings Nympton, Umberleigh EX37, UK


A characterful 3 bedroom converted barn for sale with lovely gardens in a rural countryside location. Further land available by separate negotiation.

The Round House was originally a Threshing Barn built in Tudor times as part of the East Hele Estate. Being situated on top of the hill, the barn was perfectly positioned to generate a cross-draft ideal for threshing corn.

The main accommodation sits in the middle and eastern end of the barn, but there is a very interesting unconverted workshop at the western end that could be developed in a host of different ways. Within the main accommodation, the kitchen has cleverly been positioned in the original round house.

This has resulted in a very light, yet interesting room that forms the focal point of everyday life, particularly with the gas-fired wood burner and the underfloor heating. There is a large dining room and a sitting room at the eastern end, overlooking the garden and a ground floor WC and pantry complete the ground floor accommodation.

Upstairs, there are three bedrooms and two bathrooms, one of which can be used as an en-suite by two of the
bedrooms. The second bedroom also has an area that could be used as a study.

The large workshop is a very interesting addition in that it could be incorporated into the main dwelling or used as an independent annexe for family or income generating purposes, subject to the appropriate planning permissions. Throughout the property, traditional and period features have been retained or cleverly incorporated such as Dartmoor Granite, oak beams and stone slabs giving a very traditional and charming feel.

Externally, the gardens surround the property along with gravelled courtyard areas.

There is ample parking. There is further land of approximately 2.12 acres available by separate negotiation.
