Full description

Harness Barn is a beautiful and enchanting two bedroom detached residence situated within the enviable rural village of Bishopstone within the South Downs Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, where properties rarely become available. This unique and inspired barn was converted into residential use in 1997 and since then its eclectic style and lateral living arrangement has been established and thoroughly enjoyed. The traditional style of this single storey property is accented sympathetically by stylish, modern conveniences and is particularly light and bright throughout with all rooms overlooking the landscaped gardens and further onto the South Downs National Park. These glorious views and immediate access to the open countryside are a true feature to this inspired home giving a reassuring sense of the idyllic location and providing picturesque opportunities for avid walkers, cyclists and riders alike. Externally the barn offers various charming elevations in flint, pebble stone and timber cladding which are accented by double glazed timber framed windows and doors. From the no-through Bishopstone Village lane a gravel-laid driveway leads to a double, barn-style open garage and private off street parking for one further vehicle. Double five-bar gates open into the front garden which is beautifully framed by mature planting which allow the gardens to blend seamlessly into the Sussex landscape. With two terraces, the front garden provides ample space for al fresco dining and entertaining and takes full advantage of the property's peaceful setting. To the rear, the lawned garden is enclosed by post and rail fenced borders and includes a greenhouse and a useful shed. Internally, a wealth of character and personality makes this house a home. With panelled internal doors with cast iron latches, exposed beams, vaulted ceilings and natural slate tiled floors in part this really is a highly individual abode. Of particular note is the 16 ft living room which enjoys vaulted ceilings of over 14 ft, a wood burning stove with a stone surround and double doors providing views and access to the sandstone paved terrace. The charming accommodation continues in the country-style kitchen which is fitted with a range of bespoke units with appliances which include a dishwasher, fridge and freezer. A utility/boot room provides further space for appliances, a washing machine and access to the rear garden. In brief the accommodation further comprises; 11 ft master bedroom with fitted wardrobes and an en suite bathroom, a separate shower room and a second double bedroom with a wooden ladder leading to a surprising mezzanine level overlooking the living room which is currently used as a home office. Bishopstone was once an episcopal manor whence the village name derives, dwelling place of the bishop. The church of St Andrew at the heart of the community is thought to date from the early 8th century, being one of the oldest in Britain. An excellent range of shops, restaurants and amenities can be found at the historic county town of Lewes some 22 minutes away and the coastal town of Seaford just 2 miles distant. The A26/A27 are within easy reach providing access to Brighton, Gatwick Airport and the national motorway network. The Newhaven to Dieppe ferry port is also within close proximity as are the beaches of Tidemills and Seaford and the popular Newhaven and Seaford sailing club.
