Convert to barn conversions

Martha Tabb MNAEA, Sales Negotiator in Marchand Petit's Totnes branch answers the question: “Who buys barns and why?” 

“Buyers of barns come in a number of different categories, some want something different to their previous home with the tactile appeal of old stone, flint and undulating roofs. Young families will value the space afforded by open plan living providing room for a growing family. Downsizers could be looking for the charm that a different layout offers and second home owners may want a country retreat where the security of courtyard neighbours is a strong consideration.”

Swallows, a newly refurbished barn conversion set within a small select development of just eight barns is a prime example. The property offers generous and flexible accommodation approaching 2000 sq ft currently arranged as four bedrooms, study/family room, sitting room and newly fitted kitchen/dining room both with doors opening out to a charming low maintenance courtyard garden. 

The barn sits within attractive and well maintained private grounds including a central courtyard and benefits from a double garage.

Swallows is situated in the pretty village of Galmpton which sits alongside the River Dart, with the charming location of Greenway nearby.

Swallows, 2 Manor Court is offered to the market with a guide price of £425,000 For further information please contact Marchand Petit’s Totnes office on 01803 847979. 

On the 18th May 2020, in line with government guidelines for estate agency, we resumed viewings and valuations of property. Where possible we will be minimising the numbers of viewings by first offering buyers a virtual tour. When viewings take place in person, social distancing and safety protocols will be in place.

We would like to remind all buyers that travel to the South Hams should be achievable in a day (round trip) and for those who live further away, a virtual tour with one of our agents will be offered until travel restrictions change.

In the meantime, our team are still available to help by phone, email or video conference.
