Spacious 2-bed Ground Floor Flat, Large Garden

At the heart of the community, Blackthorn is a fully refurbished home that now benefits from the extensive works conducted over the past few years which have, primarily, maximised the space available to the large bedrooms and open plan lounge / diner.

Inside Blackthorn

In particular, the current owners have:

  • Opened up the arch in the master bedroom to provide lots more light, warmth and enjoyment of the beautiful views outside
  • Reduced the thickness of certain walls under the auspices of a renowned architect in order to maximise floor space and then...
  • Added modern, double insulation to all walls to keep the warmth in during colder months
  • Installed underfloor heating in 3 rooms including both bedrooms and the shower room + hallway
  • Fitted all new bamboo, hard wearing flooring to withstand daily life whilst still allowing the heat through from underneath
  • Designed and fitted a large, brand new shower room adding a little luxury to living in an old building!
  • Re-organised the kitchen to make it larger with more cupboard space, to allow more light in from the large southern facing window, and to open up its design to make it a key part of the open plan living area

Many other smaller improvements have been made to tidy the appearance of the property inside from fitting new doors liners, doors and trims to re-plastering or skimming most of the walls.

The property has other great internal features of note like:

  • Large wood burner to heat the living space in Winter
  • Heated water can also be drawn from the wood burner's back boiler to feed the heat store - save money on heating the water whilst enjoying a lovely fire
  • It's own Reverse Osmosis water filtration system
  • Ethernet / CAT5 internet points throughout the property for faster, more reliable email, web use, TV streaming
  • Large (and valuable) storage space for hanging clothes in the master bedroom
  • Decorated, recently, in a fairly neutral way for easy moving in (no bright green walls to cover up!)

Outside Blackthorn

Blackthorn is lucky enough to have a wrap-around garden to enjoy in the Spring / Summer, in particular. It has raised beds, raspberry canes, a lovely entrance way and plenty of scope for making it 'your own' if you are a grower, or maybe just like mowing the lawn?!

The property also retains the original Coach House stone archway adding a lovely feature, visually, to the outside area. It even provides some shade in the garden in the Summer.

Finally, there is a very handy and practical double door to the garden from the open plan area making it easy to come and go from the kitchen when eating outside, or of the kids are playing there, not to mention how much extra light pours into the living space. Personally, I like to sit in this doorway looking out over the unspoiled views of the Devon countryside listening to the birds.

People who view Blackthorn generally fall in love with it and so early viewing is recommended, especially over this sunny period in August 2017.
