Full description

Tenure: Freehold

The conversion of the building from its agricultural roots to a stunning and individual home is being undertaken by MexHomes Limited who are well known as 'The Barn Conversion Company'. The transformation of Chestnut Barn and the adjoining property Meadow Barn will constitute the 39th and 40th barn conversion undertaken by a company which was founded in 2005 by Andy Mexome. His passion for property stretches back over many years and he has gained a wealth of experience along the way utilising where possible the original frames but enhancing the overall effect by the introduction of handworked green oak which has been jointed and pegged in the traditional way.

Chestnut Barn is approached from Bealings Road on the route which runs from Old Martlesham through to Rushmere and Ipswich. The location is highly convenient for access to Ipswich, Suffolk's county town, as well as Woodbridge a market town of considerable character located on the west bank of the River Deben. The town has much to offer with a variety of independent shops trading alongside the national outlets, a cinema, library, variety of restaurants and schools for students of all ages. It is also beside the River Deben which provides a natural focal point. This stretch of tidal water is much enjoyed by those who sail and row while for the less energetic there are appealing walks along the river bank. The railway station in Woodbridge has services running through to Ipswich from where frequent connections are available to London, Liverpool Street.

Nearby Martlesham Heath has a Tesco Extra Superstore and other outlets include M & S Simply Food, Next and Hughes Electrical. There are good opportunities to play sport in the surrounding district with a number of clubs catering for a variety of interests and this includes golf, sailing, rugby, football, cricket, squash, tennis, bowls etc. The coast at Aldeburgh and Thorpeness is within comfortable travelling distance with Southwold further to the north and the proximity of Snape Maltings Concert Hall, home to the internationally famous Aldeburgh Festival is a further attraction of the area which also has many attractive walks and rides.

Chestnut Barn provides spacious accommodation, the ground floor providing an Entrance Hall and a magnificent largely open plan Kitchen/Family Room with an island unit and beyond that, with glazed double doors on either side of the room, a Dining Room which is partly divided from the Family Room by a studwork screen set on a brick plinth. There are three ground floor Bedrooms, one with an En-Suite Bathroom, the other two served by a Family Bathroom and in addition on this level there is also a Utility Room and Cloakroom. The first floor has a galleried Landing and a magnificent Living Room which has lightly tinted windows which merge with the lower part of the similarly glazed roof slope to give an expansive view over the garden and fields beyond in the direction of Old Martlesham. The main Bedroom is on the same level and has a Shower Room En-Suite. The garden lies behind the property with native hedges around the perimeter and the vendors intend to prepare and seed the ground enabling a purchaser to implement their own landscaping scheme. The property has a covered parking space and in addition there is an area of hardstanding within the garden suitable for a further car or boat and another space on the opposite side of the drive, which has a tar sprayed and shingle finish.
