River's Reach, a beautiful barn conversion, has reverse level accommodation over two floors: the vast former hayloft on the first floor makeS the most of the stunning scenery.
Enter via the glass door and take the stairs: the living area is an impressive space - open-plan, light and airy with oak beams, pale wood floors and floor-to-ceiling windows on all sides capturing the views. The feeling of spaciousness is enhanced by simple, elegant contemporary furnishings.
You enter into the well equipped kitchen area where the L shaped units hide integrated appliances in keeping with the pared-back look and there are plenty of surfaces for preparing and cooking. The stainless steel fridge-freezer was chosen to compliment the silver grey colours used throughout.
In the central area the glass dining table and chairs are set between long windows to provide engaging views while dining.
At the far end is the sitting area with sofas and coffee tables arranged on a thick wool rug. Nestle amongst soft throws in the squashy sofas in front of the glowing wood-burner on a cool autumn evening or throw open the French windows to the roof terrace and feel the balmy breezes in the heat of summer.
The roof terrace beyond provides a secluded hideaway screened by a vine and creeper-covered balustrading. Soak up the day's sun in deckchairs, immerse yourself in a book beneath the umbrella (there are a wealth of books for you to read) or unwind with a glass of something special after a day’s activities and enjoy the sight of the Tamar glinting in the sunset.
If you love a great view while lying in bed, the upstairs bedroom has a lovely outlook to the river over pasture where sheep peacefully chew the cud and the en-suite too looks out onto trees and pasture.
Downstairs off the entrance hall is the second bedroom; open the blind in the morning and you may surprise a lamb gazing through the stock-fencing at you.
To get you going in the morning there's the rain shower in the wet room and plenty of room to splash about under a hot jet of water to warm you up after a paddle-boarding session.
If you want a work-out near to home open the grey wooden door off the forecourt and discover the spacious games room, once the shippen, housing cows. Spend an evening here limbering up with a game of table tennis or slowing down with a round of darts or just relaxing on the additional sofas.
Alternatively on a summer evening, fire up one of the barbecues on the side lawn or forecourt and bask in the sunshine from deck chairs and tables.
A separate entrance beneath the living room opens into:
