BRIEF DESCRIPTION Situated in the picturesque hamlet of Barton between the larger villages of Farndon and Malpas and surrounded by open countryside, this spacious and adaptable detached family home offers stunning panoramic views to the rear across open fields and beyond towards the Peckforton and Bickerton Hills, as well as towards Beeston Castle.

The property is attractively approached via double timber farmhouse gates onto a long recently relaid bonded resin driveway offering parking for several vehicles with raised lawns flanking the driveway. The rear garden forms a particular feature of the property, being of an excellent size and offering privacy as well as panoramic views. The accommodation, which offers particular adaptability, is currently a four/five bedroomed detached family home but offers potential for part of the property to be converted for a dependent relative which would enjoy its own access.

The accommodation, which is neutrally and well presented, comprises in brief: Entrance hall with attractive oak engineered flooring; spacious over 22ft living room with stunning views and UPVC double glazed patio doors providing access to a large conservatory which enjoys views of the garden and beyond; separate dining room; excellent-sized over 24ft breakfast kitchen with an extensive range of cream matt finished units complemented by solid oak butchers block style work surfaces and with direct access into the garden, a good-sized breakfast area and access to a useful outer hallway with useful cloaks area. This part of the building offers particular adaptability with a well appointed shower room/WC; utility room; further access to the rear garden; study; and a spacious bedroom/family room which enjoys French door access to the driveway. We feel this area of the property could easily be converted, subject to any necessary planning or building consents, into good-sized secondary accommodation. On the first floor, the property enjoys four bedrooms, consisting of three doubles and a good-sized single bedroom, the master bedroom enjoying attractive oak fronted fitted wardrobes as well as stunning elevated views. The master bedroom also enjoys a good-sized en-suite, all in white with attractive tiling, and there is a family bathroom, being of an excellent size with a four piece white suite complemented by attractive Travertine tiling.

Externally, the rear garden has an elevated feel with an elevated Indian stone patio/seating area and brick built barbeque with sweeping lawns, being ideal for a family, leading to a hedged rear boundary which backs onto open fields with a wonderful timber fort and climbing apparatus. The property is warmed by oil fired central heating and benefits from a mixture of double glazed timber windows to the front with UPVC double glazed windows to the rear. 

LOCATION Barton is a picturesque hamlet complete with a rare red telephone box and lies between the larger villages of Farndon and Malpas with their array of quality amenities. Excellent primary schooling is available in both Farndon and Clutton with secondary schooling available at the highly revered Bishop Heber High School in the village of Malpas. The property lies a short walk away from the popular Cock O' Barton public house and restaurant and further afield is the Carden Park hotel, spa and gym which itself stands in stunning grounds.
