Substantial Detached Barn Conversion With Annexe In A Tranquil Setting Close To The River Dart - A World Away From All The Hustle And Bustle Of Modern Day Life Yet Only A Short Drive To Exeter Or Quick Boat Trip Across The River To Dartmouth.

Create The Rural Life Of Your Dreams In This Unique Home

Nestled in a small enclave in Maypool, close to Agatha Christie’s Greenway is Higher Greenway Barn.

This substantial detached barn conversion in a tranquil setting close to the River Dart is a world away from all the hustle and bustle of modern day life yet only a short drive to Exeter or quick boat trip across the river to Dartmouth.

Entertainer’s Delight: The Barn is perfect for entertaining with its large open rooms and vaulted ceilings. A feeling of charm and warmth is provided from the open fire in the Sitting Room and beautiful Aga in the Kitchen. Plus with numerous Bedrooms Ensuite your guests can rest after a long walk by the river, hike through the woods or outing on the water.

Fun For All: The Games room is a great addition for the kids young and old with plenty of space for a pool table and table tennis table. Plus it has the benefit of opening onto the Garden and the Hot Tub deck.

The Heart Of The Home: Here, at Higher Greenway Barn, you have a choice of many rooms to call the heart of the home. Could it be the Kitchen with its oodles of space for those leisurely breakfasts and baking on the AGA, or the Snug with its warming wood-burner for a cosy winter’s afternoon. The choice is yours.

Sweet Dreams: Upstairs as you cross the Entrance Hall on the Galleried Landing you have glorious woodland views and can easily have separate Guest Suites as each Bedroom has its own contemporary designed Ensuite. Looking out over the River Dart is one large Guest Suite with beautiful Ensuite Shower Room. The luxurious shower is paired with a modern suite and bathed in light through the rooflight. Similarly in the opposite wing you have a spacious Bedroom with pretty Garden views and large Ensuite Bathroom with walk-in Shower. The third double Bedroom has a well-designed Ensuite Shower Room as does the Twin Bedroom Ensuite. Ideal for when family and friends come to stay.

An Oasis Of Calm: The Barn is set around a beautiful Courtyard Garden with lawns and patios plus a lovely deck for the hot tub and built-in changing area. It is a secluded and private area ideal to catch the afternoon sunshine, whilst to the front of the house is a covered terrace off the Sitting Room and lawned Gardens ideal for catching a glimpse of the steam train as it passes by with the River Dart twinkling in the sunlight. The land to the front is owned by the Barn thus protecting the views and maintaining your privacy in this beautiful country haven.

The Annexe: Why not put your guests up in their own separate Annexe across the drive, or rent it out to holidaymakers - a handy profitable venture. They’ll certainly be booking their return trip after they sit awhile on the terraces admiring the stunning views below.

The beautiful Annexe, created in 2010, provides Guest Accommodation for family and friends, or holiday makers. Currently successfully let out the Annexe provides a cosy secluded retreat with a good-sized double Bedroom with ensuite Showerroom, a great Twin Bedroom ideal for the kids, and an Open Plan Kitchen Dining & Living space. The views are fabulous especially when sitting out on the terrace with your morning cuppa. Who wouldn't relax here?

Sublime Views: The Barn itself has a lovely sweeping driveway with open garaging for three cars plus ample driveway parking. The lane to the front of the house meanders down to the River Dart, over which you have three easements over the neighbouring land and woods. This includes vehicle access to the River Dart, and the right to park on the pontoon and launch on the beach ready to explore the local waterways. Or walk on down into Kingswear village with its quaint inns and the ferries over to Dartmouth. Walking the other side of the house and you find Greenway, home to the world-renowned Agatha Christie, as well as the Dart Valley Trail and the village of Galmpton famed for its local butcher as well as a local pub and primary school.
