The Property
Bumble Barn would make a perfect home for those wishing rural living, yet do not wish to be isolated. The property was converted in 2004 and was a former agricultural barn belonging to the neighbouring farmhouse.

A gothic arched solid wooden door takes you into a welcoming reception hall with tiled floor and full length windows overlooking the private courtyard garden. A glazed door leads into the fabulous vaulted kitchen/family room which has light oak flooring and is full of natural light. Double doors lead out to a decked area and into the courtyard garden, a further set of double doors lead out to the lawned gardens and cart lodge. An inglenook fireplace houses a wood burning stove set on a tiled hearth with bressumer beam over. The kitchen area is well appointed with shaker style cream cupboards and drawers incorporating a wine rack and solid oak work surfaces fitted with an inset ceramic butler sink. The Rangemaster range cooker with gas hob, electric oven and extractor over is included in the sale. There is space for a fridge and freezer.

From the kitchen, steps lead down to the utility area with plumbing for a washing machine and dishwasher, a range of wall and base units and a stainless steel sink, controls for the heating system and a door leading out to the courtyard garden.

Next to the kitchen/family room is a cosy sitting room again with vaulted ceiling and inglenook fireplace housing a wood burning stove. Double doors lead out to a paved terrace overlooking the gardens, paddock and fields beyond.

From the kitchen, double doors open into the upper hallway with light oak flooring. Immediately to the left is the fourth bedroom (currently being used as a study) with vaulted ceiling, exposed brickwork and double doors leading out to the lawned garden. Back into the hallway steps lead down to the remainder of the accommodation with all rooms overlooking the courtyard garden. There is a cloakroom with tiled floor, WC and wash hand basin and a useful airing cupboard with double doors and slatted shelving offering plenty of storage. At the far end of the hallway is the master bedroom, a lovely light and airy room with vaulted ceiling, exposed timbers and double doors leading out to the courtyard garden. There are fitted wardrobe cupboards along the length of one wall and door to the en-suite which is fully tiled with large walk-in shower, WC and wash hand basin incorporated into a vanity unit and heated towel rail.

There are two further double bedrooms both with vaulted ceilings and one with door leading directly into the family bathroom which is a good size and fully tiled with P-shaped bath with glazed screen and shower over, WC and wash hand basin incorporated into a vanity unit and heated towel rail.

The property is approached over a shared gravel driveway where Bumble Barn will be found at the far end with plenty of parking to the front of the property for several vehicles. The single garage has power and light connected and the benefit of an electrically operated door as does the boiler room which houses the oil fired boiler, water tank and water softener.

Access to the south facing secluded walled courtyard garden is through a gothic arched solid wooden gate. The courtyard is a real sun trap and has a raised decking area and wooden planters containing seasonal flowering shrubs and plants. A door from the courtyard leads to the outside office/studio which has heat, power, light and internet connection. Across the driveway is a small lawned garden where the oil tank is situated.

The garden to rear of the property is laid to lawn with beds containing a variety of shrubs and plants. A paved terrace is screened from the front by a laurel hedge and and is accessed through double doors from the sitting room. The double cartlodge measuring 6m x 11m is open to one side and currently being used as a log store the other side is enclosed and is accessed by double doors. Double gates open into the paddock area which is grassed and enclosed by mature hedging and continues around the rear of the lawned garden to a large open barn measuring 11m x 13m which offers a range of uses. The owners of the farmhouse next door have a right of way to the side of the paddock to access a neighbouring field.
