The Old Barn is a stunning barn conversion which was built approximately 12 years to create a wonderfully spacious home, full of character and light. The accommodation has been very thoughtfully designed around the fabric of the barn with a wealth of exposed timbers and studwork sitting very well alongside contemporary and modern fittings. The reception room has a lovely brick central fireplace with a wood burner with a charming galleried sitting room accessed from stairs to the side. This provides additional and cosy family living space together with the beautiful kitchen opening through to breakfast room/dining room. French doors open from these rooms to the gardens and terrace affording them an unusual amount of natural light, rarely found in barn conversions. The large master bedroom on the ground floor has an extensive range of bespoke oak fronted wardrobes, a lovely en-suite shower room and French door opening onto the garden. The three first floor bedrooms on the first floor in the barn all have vaulted ceilings and are served by a family bathroom. One of these provides currently provides perfect study space. The fifth guest bedroom and en-suite shower room is at the other end of the barn above the garage and with some alterations, this accommodation could be re-configured to provide a self- contained annexe, ideal for a dependant relative or nanny etc or alternatively a play room or study/office.

Cromer is a small hamlet which sits in attractive rolling countryside between Buntingford and Stevenage. The barn is set well back from the road, tucked in behind a former farmhouse and backing onto open fields. There are extensive and varied amenities in Buntingford with further facilities available in Baldock, Royston and Stevenage including Waitrose, Sainsbury and Tesco supermarkets. For those needing the commute, the property is ideally situated for easy access to the railway station at Stevenage which operates a fast and regular service into London Kings Cross and also to the A10 and to A1 leading to the M25, London and the North. There is a primary school in the nearby village of Ardesley with secondary schooling available, in both the private and public sectors in Buntingford, Ware, Hailey-bury and Bishops Stortford. The property offers excellent equestrian facilities and the local area provides an extensive network of bridleways and off-road hacking.

The barn is approached over a long gravel driveway giving access to the large parking area and the detached double garage. The driveway is bordered by attractive shrub borders and opens to the landscaped front garden which is mainly laid to lawn with box hedging and established planting. A five bar gate opens to the stable yard which has been thoughtfully laid out to provide adequate turning and parking for any horse box. From this there is access to the hay barn and the paddocks beyond.
The rear gardens are very pleasantly sloping and south facing with a large patio to the back of house providing lovely and secluded al fresco dining space. The rear gardens are mainly laid to lawn, extending to approximately half an acre with seasonally planted and well stocked beds and borders. There is a useful garden shed, ideal for garden machinery and furniture and steps lead up from the garden to the stable block behind.
The stable block was built by the current owners and is a superb example of a prime equestrian facility, ideal for horse owners and designed with every need in mind including trace heating to pipes, extra lighting for vet visits etc and covered areas for washing, grooming etc. The block comprises three loose boxes, a tack room and a hay barn which provides excellent dry storage but could, alternatively, be used as additional garage space if needed or indeed converted to home office, gym, studio etc (subject to planning).
Available by separate negotiation are two post and rail paddocks to the back of the property which extend to approximately 4.5 acres.
