Full description

Whispers Barn was cleverly converted from two late Victorian farm buildings. Not in a complex, it's standalone position in the idyllic Fen countryside makes it something really special, yet it is still close to village amenities.

The property is finished to a high standard and has been designed with comfortable living in mind. Some of the original features, such as the beams in the lounge, and the outside brickwork, together with the typical rounded corners to the interior walls, have been retained, and the right balance between traditional charm and modern convenience has been achieved throughout the house.

There is an abundance of windows, especially in the large double aspect garden room to which the current owners have added stylish colonial type shutters. This is the heart of the home, with terracotta pamment tiles to the floor and window sills, a superbly equipped kitchen, comfortable lounging area before a wood burner and a dining area for informal meals. This room always elicits the ubiquitous ?wow? from whoever first enters it, as does the magnificent lounge with its vaulted ceiling and enormous inglenook fireplace.

Both the lounge and garden room feature wood burners providing the house with an ambient glow throughout the colder months. The property also has underfloor heating throughout, zoned to each room. The large open rooms are excellent for entertaining with the owners frequently inviting guests over.

The ravishing outdoor space offers a charming backdrop to a warm summer's day whilst the flourishing fruit and vegetable areas allow the owners to be more or less self-sufficient in fresh food.

WHISPERS IN THE WIND "As barn owls nest in rafters high and gardens bloom ?neath wide blue sky, just rest a while in perfect calm and enjoy your life at Whispers Barn."
