Barn conversions in demand

Barn conversions are proving to be a source of sales success in the property market, as the Modbury office of Marchand Petit have noted, so good news for all admirers of this innovative style of property. 

The Old Cider Press Barns, a collection of units at Ludbrook near Ugborough are an example of this recent positive activity. They were on the market for some months before being purchased by a highly regarded local developer. 

Sales manager of the Modbury office Fenella Russell-Smith said: “This top quality development of three stone barns, two of which sold before completion, has proved to be a massive hit with purchasers. 

“1 Cider Press Barns, the first of the three magnificent Grade II listed barn conversions to be released, with original features expertly incorporated in the design, to create a unique and interesting three bedroom property, sold for the full asking price even before being launched to the market. 

“2 Cider Press Barns, the second of the conversions to be released, with an impressive vaulted sitting room and vaulted kitchen/living room, and wonderful countryside views, sold before completion with an asking price of £650,000.” 

Director and Registered Valuer Stuart Cartwright commented that it is very satisfying to see such high quality workmanship so well received and rewarded. “With much expectation we’re about to launch the final barn; a magnificent three double bedroom reverse level stone conversion, with a two bedroom annexe, surrounded by open countryside and set in just over an acre of grounds.” 

The Linhay, Cider Press Barns is the final barn for sale with a guide price of £760,000 and offers an opportunity to own one of these remarkable properties. Marketed through the Modbury office please contact the team on 01548 831163 for further details.
