Sold by Us £850,000
A magnificent Grade II Listed attached period barn, believed to date back to the 18th Century, sympathetically converted by a renowned local builder in 2003. Owl Barn, which is of Special Architectural and Historical Interest, is constructed of part brick/oak framework with a queen post roof with curved braces, clad with heavy oak weatherboarding with sealed double glazing. The present owners, who have occupied the property since it was first converted, have carried out further improvements, namely a new entrance hallway with limestone flooring; dividing part of the first floor into two areas to provide a glazed office and fitting a gable window in the main bedroom. The property benefits from oil fired central heating with under floor heating provided by an Alpha range in the kitchen which also provides the hot water. The kitchen is beautifully fitted with pippy oak panelled units, an Alpha range and slate flooring. There is broad oak plank flooring virtually throughout the ground floor.
Agent’s Note: A stunning barn conversion with a wealth of character, numerous exposed beams and timbers, vaulted ceilings with enhanced lighting and broad oak flooring to the ground floor. An internal inspection is highly recommended.
