5 bedroom barn conversion for saleGravel Hill Road, Holt Pound, Farnham, GU10
Set in a peaceful semi-rural location within Alice Holt Forest on the outskirts of Farnham, this five bedroom, 2,700 sq ft contemporary barn conversion by architect Kate Stoddart sits in a third of an acre plot. Employing a host of sustainable technologies, including a heat recovery system, solar electric supply, air source heat pump and water recycling, the property combines both a minimal environmental footprint with low running costs (the barns have an EPC Rating of B).
Created from two brick barns built in the 1990s and joined by a glass-fronted link, the property is effectively divided into ‘living’ and ‘sleeping’ blocks which utilise large expanses of glazing to draw plentiful amounts of natural light into the interior whilst framing views out to the countryside beyond.
Approached across a shingle drive with covered parking for two vehicles, the barns are part-clad in cedar, a material intended to weather to a silver/grey finish over time. The timber is complimented by an exposed brick base and the striking black Alltherm aluminium windows and doors.
A double height entrance hallway with stone-clad wood burner leads off into a main reception room with south-facing bi-fold doors (allowing access onto a paved terrace), family / media room, WC and kitchen / dining room. At the heart of the house and bridging the transition between the living and sleeping wings, the kitchen / dining area takes advantage of a full height ceiling and is a fantastic multi-functional family room. The kitchen has integrated Siemens appliances and bi-fold doors lead out to a decked area. There is also a separate utility room.
A glazed walkway leads through to a collection of rooms comprising a master bedroom suite with shower room and walk-in wardrobe, family bathroom and four additional bedrooms, two of which share a ‘Jack and Jill’ shower room. The master bedroom in particular has a great feeling of space, with high ceilings and bi-fold doors out to the decked terrace. All bathrooms are constructed to wet room specification and are disabled friendly, with DDA compliant disabled access doors.
All rooms have underfloor heating and USB charging points; those in the living barn have Media and Cat 5 wiring. With the exception of the entrance hall, bathrooms and kitchen/dining room, all floors are carpeted.
Alice Holt Forest is a 15-minute walk from the pretty village of Rowledge, with its pub, primary school and small selection of shops (including the celebrated butcher Michael Humphries) amongst other facilities. The highly-regarded private school, Frensham Heights, is a 5-minute drive from the house.
Nearby Farnham is a town that is rich in architectural history, featuring a beautiful Georgian high street with a historic castle. It is popular town thanks to its excellent schooling (including South Farnham which consistently tops national school league tables), close links to London (Waterloo can be reached by train in approximately 50 minutes) and cultural opportunities (it has The Maltings arts centre and is known as a national centre for craft). It also has a broad range of shopping and dining opportunities and numerous other facilities. Farnham is located on the Surrey / Hampshire border and is surrounded by attractive countryside, whilst still having excellent transport links via the train station and nearby A3 and M3.
