Description

Springfield Barn is positioned off the western side of "The Avenue" leading from Barnsdale to Cottesmore/Exton; set back from the road and with uninterrupted views over Exton Estate farmland. There are two other dwellings adjacent to the property but each affords a high-degree of privacy from one another.

The spacious country house was converted in 1992 by Clover Reality, deemed to build first-class quality properties in its era. The house has ample character borrowed from the original stone walls and former casements of the original barn. The most notable features of this property are its spacious accommodation with wide hallways, luxuriously large master bedroom, idyllic westerly views and the paddock, which could accommodate two horses.

Further features to be highlighted are the large inglenook fireplace in the drawing room, complete with seats to enjoy the warmth of the fire on cold nights, the ground floor bedroom with ensuite bathroom providing flexible accommodation and the reception hall with galleried landing. The kitchen/breakfast room has lovely views out over the garden and fields beyond and has an oil-fired 2-door AGA and traditional farmhouse-style brick and timber kitchen units.

The bedrooms are principally laid out on the 1st floor and all 5 bedrooms are doubles. The master bedroom suite includes a walk-in dressing area and ensuite with 2 pedestal washbasins, large bath, separate shower area and bidet. Three bedrooms have fitted bespoke fine oak desks and shelving units. The family room on the ground floor could be used as a 6th bedroom if required with adjacent WC. Bedroom 4 has a walk-in wardrobe and adjacent to that is a store cupboard.

The house is approached from the drive into a large gravelled area with ample parking, measuring approximately 85ft by 55ft with direct access to garage/outbuilding and front door of the house. The drive further continues to the paddock to the north. The garden principally lies to the west of the property and is laid to lawn for easy maintenance. Around the house is a gravelled area outside the drawing room for alfresco dining and a wonderful walled inner courtyard area measuring approximately 65ft by 60ft, accessible from the reception hall and sitting room. This is currently gravelled but could be landscaped to become a glorious, south facing courtyard garden.

The garden is divided from the paddock by a post and rail fence and mature hedge. The paddock measures approx 2.43 acres whilst the total property amounts to 3.75 acres.

Square Footage: 5,435 sq ft
Acreage: 3.75 Acres
