Property Description

Full description

Of 18th Century origins and once forming part of a local dairy farm this most distinctive barn conversion has in recent years been sympathetically converted by the present owner to provide a most splendid home that is set in grounds of two and three quarter acres including paddocks and a most impressive stable block and yard.
For those who have equestrian interest the property is set in a idyllic semi rural location with access to some of the areas best loved bridle ways and footpaths. For those who may not have a need to accommodate horses the stable block could prove to be a most useful building that subject to obtaining planning consent could be converted to form a substantial detached annexe/office.

The present owner has been careful to sympathetically blend original features of the barn with modern necessities with many exposed timbers and brickwork being found throughout. An original feed trough is now skillfully incorporated into the living room to accommodate logs and kindling wood for the wood burning stove.

The accommodation provides a reception hall, cloakroom, occasional bedroom/study, Farmhouse style kitchen/breakfast room with Aga, a splendid living room with solid Oak flooring and vaulted ceiling, an impressive conservatory with flagstone floor, two good size first floor bedrooms one with en suite shower room and one with en suite bathroom.
