Full description

Queniborough Barn is a prominent barn conversion beautifully positioned beside a 13th century church within the conservation area of the village which has changed very little over the centuries. Built as a tithe barn in 1741 and Grade II listed this substantial and lavishly appointed six bedroom home offers over 6000 sq ft of accommodation that includes a 35ft reception room, fully bespoke oak kitchen with AGA, additional first floor drawing room with high vaulted ceiling, minstrels galley and a self contained annexe ideal for an extended family or those looking to run their business from home. Manicured gardens to both front and rear provide quality outdoor space and a gated driveway leads to a double garage and former stable.

Queniborough Barn is set back from Main Street and large metal gates (power available) set under a brick archway open to a generous turning area to rear. Outbuildings include a double garage, former stable and attractive manicured gardens extending to three sides of the property. Mature trees surround the property including yew, sycamore and Scots pine. The rear gardens are mainly laid to lawn and include several patio areas, attractive shrubs and a raised herb garden.

All main services are available and connected. The property has gas central heating fired by two Ravenheat boilers located in the annexe kitchen. At considerable cost all windows were replaced with double glazed oak windows, some of which are leaded.

Entering the village travelling along Queniborough Road continue along Main Street into the conservation area of the village. The property can be found located on the left hand just before St Mary's Church.
