Sky House is an exceptional detached barn conversion that is located in a remarkable position on a quiet country lane and enjoys the most wonderful far reaching views. Standing in a plot of circa one third of an acre the barn has been subject to a meticulous scheme of renovation with ground floor underfloor heating which has transformed it from a traditional unused barn into a warm, inviting, light, spacious and truly spectacular family home.

The accommodation opens with a striking reception/entrance hall that is of hugely impressive proportions. From the entrance hall access can be gained to the cloakroom, sitting room, kitchen and ground floor guest suite. The sitting room is of an impressive almost square proportion and has a contemporary stove as its primary focal point. The guest suite comprises a large double bedroom with impressive en-suite shower room. This space could easily be adapted to a further reception room/cinema room/home office if required.

The kitchen was designed by the renowned "Neptune Kitchens" and features a 4.5m island unit, excellent range of appliances, integrated American style fridge/freezer and bespoke walk in display and storage areas with full height contemporary glass doors. The kitchen continues open plan into the garden/family room which is in itself a wonderful room having a vaulted ceiling with exposed green oak truss and two sets of French doors that lead to the terrace. The room is flooded with light as it also has three full height windows which take in the garden and surrounding views. Accessed through an open, full height feature bookcase from the garden room is a light and open study/playroom.

Completing the accommodation at ground floor level is a well proportioned utility room, walk in store room and separate boiler room.

At first floor level the accommodation continues to impress. The principal bedroom enjoys magnificent views of open countryside surrounding. Accessed from the bedroom there is a spacious full height walk in wardrobe and an excellent en-suite shower room. At the opposite end of the barn is bedroom two which again has a walk in wardrobe and full en-suite bathroom with feature free standing bath. The third bedroom is again a comfortable double and has an attractive en-suite shower room with Hudson Reed chrome fitments. All flooring and tiling throughout the property is by Porcelanosa.

Obvious uses for the studio include a study away from the principal residence, a teenagers den and/or an art studio/therapy room/home office.

The barn stands in grounds of approximately one third of an acre which has been landscaped in a skillful and intelligent manner. There is ample off road parking for several vehicles, expanses of lawn, feature sandstone rockery, well stocked beds and borders and a superb terrace that overlooks the wonderful views.
