Full description

Newly built by Grovesbrook Homes, Orchard Barn is a stunning home built to an exceptional standard, displaying high quality features complemented by luxurious accommodation with an emphasis on character and personality. Standing within half an acre of private part-wooded grounds, the house is one of only three outstanding properties that form this exclusive superior development in one of the area’s most popular villages, discreetly tucked away along a quiet lane. The build quality is outstanding, with traditional materials used throughout including a clay tiled roof-line and rendered and weather-boarded elevations, offering considerable character yet with all the benefits of modern living such as underfloor heating and the energy efficiency of a new home.

The beautifully arranged and immaculately presented accommodation is complemented by quality carpets and tiled flooring and currently comprises: traditional entrance door opening to a reception hall with tiled floor, stairs off to first floor and door to a ground floor cloakroom. The splendid sitting room has a set of bi-fold doors to the gardens, a fine Inglenook style fireplace with wood burner as a central focal point, and fitted carpets. The study is a versatile reception with half vaulted ceiling and glazing to front. The exceptional kitchen breakfast room is fitted with a high quality fully equipped kitchen enhanced by granite work surfaces and integrated appliances. An abundance of natural light is welcomed into the property at every opportunity, and a particular highlight is the large seating area within the kitchen, which offers a roof light in addition to the twelve windows sweeping across three aspects – a truly wonderful space in which to enjoy a family meal. Traditional oak stud work separates the dining room, which enjoys full sized bi-fold doors opening to the gardens. A utility room completes the ground floor accommodation.
