This excellent property in Ridley Hill Farm is arguably the finest barn conversion to come to the market in 2016. Having been impeccably maintained and improved by the present owner over several years, the property is offered for sale with no ongoing chain and is priced at a competitive level sure to attract the interest of the market. In the author's opinion it offers one of the best layouts possible with an excellent use of space. The barn forms part of Ridley Hill Farm with all residence having the use of a very well maintained tennis court that has an aspect of the Welsh hills in the immediate distance.

The barn is approached via a sweeping driveway that in itself is an impressive entrance to the property. The driveway sweeps past a garage block, the first of which on the left hand side is the double garage belonging to the associated barn. The accommodation itself opens with a large and attractive entrance hall that has wood block flooring throughout and a pine staircase rising to the first floor. Off the entrance hall access can be gained to a cloakroom, three separate reception rooms and a beautiful kitchen. The living room is a lovely space being an elegant square proportion and having a Cheshire brick fireplace with a woodburning stove as its focal point. There is also French doors that open onto and overlook the rear garden. The other reception rooms comprise a good sized dining room, again with French doors opening onto the garden, a separate study and a beautiful bespoke kitchen with a range of Shaker style wall and floor cupboards and excellent Bosch appliances.

At first floor level the accommodation continues to impress. The landing leads to four bedrooms and a family bathroom. The master bedroom suite has an entrance area, large double bedroom with views to the rear of open countryside and a super en-suite shower room that has been fully refitted with excellent high grade materials. There are three further bedrooms, all of good proportion and a stylish family bathroom with Heritage suite.

Externally there are fabulous views to the rear of open countryside and a lovely rear landscaped garden which is of a very good size yet still relatively straight forward to maintain with large expanses of lawn. As already mentioned there is a double garage, communal grounds and a super tennis court that is available for use by all residence.

In summary, this special property is a rare and welcome property to the market and a viewing appointment is advised.
