“Threshold, Edginswell. Torquay”
Stunning Barn Conversion
Forming Part Of Local History Is This 3 Bedroom Grade II Listed Thatched Barn Conversion That Has Been Refurbished To A High Standard….
Threshold is the most recent part of the barn complex, although it existed on the 1840 title plan, the large doors at the front and rear were designed so that a through draft could be utilised to winnow the grain. The board placed across the doorway to contain the grain was know as “Thres-hold”. The accommodation briefly comprises spacious reception hallway with downstairs cloakroom/wc, superbly fitted kitchen/breakfast room with built-in appliances, separate dining area with bi-folds giving access to the rear garden and a good size sitting room with feature fireplace. On the first floor there is a gallery style first floor landing, 3 bedrooms with the master having en suite shower room/wc, family bathroom and separate wc. Outside there is allocated parking for 2 cars, covered storage area and good size enclosed rear garden.
The first recorded purchase of the barns believed to be 1773 when they were bought from a retired sea captain called Codnor, the property was described on the deeds as “a set of old barns”, an archaeological survey has dated them to about 1700 or late jacobian, the Codnor family owned the barns until early 2000. The property occupies what feels to be a semi rural residential position but is within easy walking distance of local public house on the Newton Road where there will be a new Edginswell train stop that connects Newton Abbot, Exeter and London beyond. It is also within easy reach of The Willows with their array of shops, facilities and amenities and also within close reach to the newly constructed by-pass which connects Newton Abbot, Exeter and the M5 beyond. An internal inspection is highly recommended to appreciate the size, position and condition the accommodation boasts.
