Barna Gardens is an exceptional neo-period detached property which has been designed to a fine standard. Full of charm and allure, the property was built in 1995 with great care and detail and with special attention bestowed to the brick and limestone elevations. Extending to approximately 7,534sq. ft. the property lies on about 1 acre of beautiful, old-world style walled gardens.
On entering Barna Gardens, it immediately becomes apparent that the property is of real distinction, with ornate ceilings, beautiful covings and large picture windows affording light filled rooms. Internally the extensive accommodation, arranged over three floors has been wonderfully designed with a growing family in mind. The ground floor has an impressive entrance hall with 3 reception rooms and a large kitchen with access to a sunlit terrace. To the right of the entrance hall double doors lead to the swimming pool and sun room. The most impressive "Empire" style staircase steers to the first floor with a notable master bedroom, double dressing rooms and bathroom make for a superior boudoir. Also on this level are three further double bedrooms with concerning ensuite facilities. A lesser staircase leads to the second floor with three more bedroom ensuites and a family bathroom. Should it be required, this floor could be used as a staff apartment or as guest accommodation.
Barna Gardens offers the utmost in privacy and seclusion; encompassed by beautiful cut stone walls. The property is approached via lime tree lined avenue through electronic gates. On entrance, the sweeping driveway leads to the imposing front of the property where the limestone clad front offers a truly impressive facade.
To the side of the property is a small courtyard with 3 stables and access to the rear garden. Here the most distinctive element of the property is revealed. The garden has been divided by four stepped terraces; firstly the suntrap paved area outside the kitchen which lends itself perfectly to al fresco entertaining. Steps down lead to the formal garden which is bordered by box hedging with mature flower beds and shrubberies. The second, middle terrace is a large lawned area surrounded by a herbaceous borders and two feature pavilions at the farthest extremities. The fourth level and probably the most special is the river walk, which is predominantly a natural style woodland area with wild flower planting leading to the banks of the local river - a picture perfect area offering both a tranquil and serene space to unwind and listen to the babbling water.
