Full description

Tenure: Freehold

Situated in this popular and sought after village, and offering versatile and adaptable accommodation, this is an extremely well presented 4-bedroom detached barn conversion, which has been the subject of considerable expenditure by the current vendors, and sits nicely on a generous plot with south facing rear gardens backing onto open fields with a superb outlook over rolling hills and countryside beyond.

The barn was originally converted in 1986 and when the current vendors purchased the property in 2000 they extended the accommodation to its now generous 4 bedrooms. However, there is still an adjoining workshop/store with loft space above which could easily be adapted to create additional accommodation if required, subject to any necessary planning consents.

Positioned in this elevated spot to take full advantage of the fantastic views, the property offers ample enclosed off-road parking at the front and internally the rooms are of an excellent size with ample windows making the property light and airy and enjoying a private and peaceful location.

In brief the accommodation comprises: front door to entrance hall with solid wood flooring and stairs to first floor, cloakroom with 2-piece white suite, useful utility room with plumbing for washing machine, sink unit, appliance space, door to front and a door to the adjoining workshop/store where the Grant oil fired boiler is housed and hatch to loft space. This room offers scope to create additional accommodation if required and with the loft space above also allows for an extension to the first floor accommodation if required, subject to necessary planning consents. The fabulous kitchen/dining room is extremely generous in size with a family area and would be ideal for social gatherings. The kitchen itself is fitted with a range of wall and base units with solid oak working surfaces over, inset Butler sink, part tiled walls, recessed fireplace housing an electric Range cooker with extractor and light above, windows overlooking the rear garden, matching dresser with lit glass fronted display cabinets, ample space for a large dining table and to the far end of the room is a family seating area where there are recessed alcoves for video/t.v. equipment. A door leads to the outside and a further stable door leads back to the main entrance hall. The large sitting room is a lovely light and airy room benefiting from triple aspect windows, feature fireplace with slate hearth with multi-fuel room heater, views over the garden and stunning views from the west facing window over rolling hills and countryside. A fantastic addition to this room is the sun room enjoying an outlook over the gardens with French doors to the rear patio.

On the first floor landing is an airing cupboard with factory lagged hot water cylinder and solid wood flooring and vaulted ceiling. The landing splits to provide the master bedroom and family bathroom to one side with the master bedroom suite enjoying triple aspect views from all sides, with the south and west facing windows enjoying panoramic rural views. There is a large walk-in storage cupboard which could easily be adapted to create a dressing room to the master bedroom if required plus a large bathroom with 5-piece white suite comprising double shower cubicle with electric shower, panelled bath, pedestal wash basin, w.c., bidet and window enjoying views. From the landing there is a shower room with 3-piece white suite with shower cubicle with electric shower, wash basin, w.c., and heated towel rail. Bedroom 2, a generous dual aspect double bedroom affording views, has exposed floorboards, roof trusses and beams, vaulted ceiling and vanitory sink. Bedrooms 3 and 4 both offer exposed trusses with sloping ceilings, exposed floorboards and lovely views can be enjoyed.

Outside, double wooden gates lead to an enclosed area to the front laid to chippings providing ample parking for numerous vehicles, motor homes, boats etc., and there is further parking to the front of the gates. Side pedestrian gate gives access to the rear with a large timber log store and pathway leading around to the rear of the property with a lovely private south facing patio area, ideal for outdoor dining. This leads to a gently sloping lawn with a variety of mature trees and shrubs and apple tree.
