The Story

From the plush master suite at Oakwood Barn that takes up the entire floor of the extension there are glorious views over rolling fields.
This magnificent room also features a solid oak floor and beautiful oak beams.
“It’s a huge area with a dressing room and an en suite bathroom that has a roll top bath and a double shower. It’s extremely luxurious and relaxing,” said the current owners.
The Goldcliff property has numerous attractive features throughout these contrasting living spaces in the original barn and an extension.
“The extension adds so much to the property. It is more modern but still in keeping with the barn’s age and style,” they said. “It’s a lovely mixture and everything flows really well. Every room is beautifully spacious.”

PERFECT PLANNING
But it’s the open plan kitchen, breakfast and dining area that is at the heart of life at Oakwood Barn.
“From day to day, that’s the area we live in. We can be in the kitchen and keep an eye on the children. We have all our family meals in there on our huge refectory table and can even see the drawing room from there.”
The kitchen also reflects the barn’s name with solid oak doors. There’s a range-style cooker and two big arched wooden doorways, glazed in the middle that open out on to the terrace, allowing a breeze in during the summer.
“We’ve had some fantastic celebrations here, such as my son’s christening and my daughter’s communion, with about 60 people just flowing in and out. It’s perfect for entertaining,” they added.
“We have a jukebox in the corner of the breakfast area and the space is great for the children to run around in.”

ROARING FIRE
In the winter, the stunning vaulted drawing room is good for gatherings or simply for winding down with the family. The fireplace is an impressive feature of the room. It has a stone surround, log-burner and a seven foot long chunk of oak as a mantelpiece.
“It’s a very warm and cosy room, we love it in there,” they said.
Overlooking the drawing room is the gallery area, currently being used as a study and library - ideal as a second sitting room.
“There’s so much flexible space here, everyone can had more than enough room to engage their hobbies,” they pointed out.
Oakwood Barn has lots of spacious guest rooms, as well as its master suite. Two are downstairs in the extension, sharing a shower room with Spanish tiles and a black marble effect floor. Another two bedrooms are the original building, and share the family bathroom with the fifth guest room being upstairs.

SPECIAL CREATION
“The main bathroom is quite a feature with a corner Jacuzzi bath, a half-moon shaped shower and floor-to-ceiling tiles,” they said. “It has got quite a Roman feel, with a stone pillar from the original structure.”
With the location being so green, and a secluded garden to the front and rear, each room benefits from tranquil views of the surrounding area and lots of light.
Located between Newport and the Severn, Broadstreet Common, where Oakwood Barn is situated, is in a countryside setting.
A long driveway leads up to the converted barn and stables.
“The garden, is now lovely and mature. There’s a large terrace for barbecues or for the children to cycle on and there’s a big lawn that they love to play football on. There’s a conservation area behind us and it’s all very quiet and private nearby.”

LIVING AND WORKING
There is a fully functional office space in the converted stable, with telephone line, fax line and wi-fi - so it is already set up for those who want to work from home.
The double garage is also ready to be converted.
This could make a great self-contained flat, which would be ideal for older children or relatives to use, or even staff.
It could have a master bedroom with en suite bathroom, a kitchen, and another bedroom.
