Property Description

Full description

A superb and individual example of a wonderfully converted, brick-built barn that stands on impressive grounds and gardens of around 1 & 1/2 acres (subject to measured survey). The current owner has overseen and managed the full transition of this project from start to finish and each aspect of this change has been carefully considered and thought out. Equally as important, the quality of finish that has been applied at the highest level and throughout the property, the original charm and character has been retained and enhanced with vaulted ceilings and ceiling beams visible throughout. Accommodation wise, the first floor houses all sleeping areas which includes 4 bedrooms. Three of these rooms have their own en-suite and are each generous, double bedrooms. In addition, the 4th bedroom can also be used as a further sitting/reading area with the floor to ceiling window produces a calming, light, relaxing space. Downstairs, the property is designed for modern open living and entertaining with associated speaker/system wiring throughout. It begins with a 21ft main Entrance and Dining Hall, which then opens to the 17ft sitting room that benefits from having a central wood burning stove and where a separate study adjoins. The large kitchen has been designed to add a contemporary feel to the property and is a further example of the quality applied. Measuring over 17ft, it provides high gloss units with solid Chestnut work-surfaces along with a large centre island and preparation area. To the rear is a further entrance lobby and cloakroom and adjoining the kitchen is a separate utility. The outside is a glorious, established space providing parking galore, plentiful garden space and again is set-up for entertainment with lighting surrounding, external speaker points and purpose built barbecue area. Combined with a glorious, open rear paddock and an abundance of fruit trees and mature shrubs throughout, ‘Magdalen Barns’ is simply stunning and must be viewed inside and out.
