Manor Farm Barn is a sympathetic conversion of a 17th century former tythe barn with considerable character and charm. The building is listed as being of Architectural or Historic Importance Grade II and lies within the Wingrave Conservation Area.
The property lies at the heart of the sought after village of Wingrave, close to the Buckinghamshire/Hertfordshire county boundary. It is one of a group of buildings which once formed Manor Farm, close to the village pond, the parish church and just a short distance from the village general store and pub. The village primary school, which is within walking distance, is rated "Good" by OFSTED, and the property and is within the Buckinghamshire grammar school catchment area. There are excellent mainline rail services into London Euston from nearby Tring and Leighton Buzzard.
Manor Farm Barn is the larger portion of a very fine 17th century tythe barn with beautiful roof trusses and exposed timbers. It is of timber frame construction, weather boarded and on a stone and brick plinth with a tiled hipped roof. Inside the double height principal reception room showcases some of the braced tie beams, queen strut trusses and curved wind-braces. The projecting former waggon entrance has been glazed to protect the integrity of the building and allow plenty of light to flood into the building.
The ground floor accommodation is flexible and includes a drawing room with wood floor, exposed timbers, brick heath with oak bressumer, wood-burning stove and is overlooked by the galleried landing. There are double doors opening into the garden and central courtyard. The adjoining open-plan study/dining room also has direct access to the south facing courtyard garden. A door also leads to a further reception room providing the option to be used as a sitting room, playroom or alternative dining room with a door opening into the kitchen.
The kitchen has been well planned with ample work surfaces and butler's sink. The extensive range of wooden cupboards complement the exposed timbers found in the kitchen and elsewhere in the building. There is a large range with extractor hood and windows to the west and north overlooking the garden. Beyond is a breakfast area. Off the hall is a cloakroom with room for coats and boots. The staircase off the hall heads up to the impressive galleried landing which overlooks the drawing room and has a small seating area ideal for a desk or comfortable chair and overlooks the main garden.
The master bedroom has a range of fitted cupboards and an en-suite bathroom with a separate shower. There are three further bedrooms off the first floor landing and a family bathroom.
The main area of garden is secluded and well planted, providing a wonderful backdrop to the house. It has a paved terrace ideal for al-fresco dining. Beyond is an expanse of lawn surrounded by mature shrubs, herbaceous plants and hedging giving plenty of scope for a keen gardener or an ideal play area for young children. A side gate gives access to the south facing garden which faces into a central courtyard. This too has been attractively planted and discreetly defines the boundaries between Manor Farm Barn and the neighbouring properties.
