Unquestionable quality The barn, which is now a truly stunning four bedroom family home, dates from the 18th Century and was converted in 2004 by the previous owners. "We love living here - it is such a beautiful family environment." the current owners tell us. The original timbers and brickwork on display are truly breath-taking and the conversion has been well thought out with an impressive attention to detail and quality. On the ground floor, rooms flow effortlessly into one another. The sitting room and dining room are both extremely spacious with plenty of room for entertaining and the bespoke kitchen, family room and study allow the flexibility that a modern day family seeks. The gardens are beautifully landscaped and well stocked with a huge variety of scented, flowering plants and mature shrubs and trees and the two decking areas are ideal spots to relax and enjoy the far reaching views of the countryside and the sea beyond. 

A warm welcome A private gravel driveway takes you off the quiet, rural lane and past the extensive front lawn, bordered with colourful raised beds and dotted with mature trees. The front of the barn is truly magnificent with imposing glazed panels allowing glimpses of the double height vaulted hall within. The ground floor comprises beautifully presented flexible spaces which are impressively spacious yet cosy and welcoming. "It is a great home for parties and family gatherings as there is so much space and it never feels overcrowded." Having all the charm of a period property with all the comfort of a contemporary home creates a wonderful environment to live in. The sitting room, with oak floor, brick fireplace housing a handsome wood burner and stunning original beams, has been cleverly divided off from the vaulted hall with full height glazing panels allowing the light to flood in, whilst the heat generated by the underfloor heating and wood burner warms and relaxes chilly winter bones. "We have two wood burners back-to-back in the sitting room and dining room and we only ever need to light one to keep the whole core of the barn warm in the winter."  

Five star quality The kitchen, which is situated to the rear of the property, is stunningly fitted out with a stone worktop and hand-crafted units painted in a stylish powder blue. "The large Aga in the kitchen initially scared us but once we tasted a Christmas turkey cooked in it we were converted." A comfortable sofa and stylish breakfast bar create a wonderfully relaxed atmosphere and the adjoining dining room is ideal for more formal dining and entertaining. "Christmas is magical here as we have a huge 16 foot tree decorating the hall and we have the whole family over for Christmas lunch in the dining room." When friends and family come to stay there is a fantastic guest suite on the ground floor and they can relax and unwind in the Jacuzzi bath after the festivities have drawn to a close. "The downstairs guest suite is perfect for visitors as they appreciate the privacy and peace and quiet when they come to stay." The three further bedrooms on the first floor all benefit from en-suite facilities and the family bathroom is the ultimate in decadence - two rooms with two baths, one of which is a Jacuzzi bath, a huge walk in shower and even plenty of space for a large sofa. The master suite with vaulted ceiling and walk-in wardrobe has a fantastically spacious en-suite with wet room and the icing on the cake is a balcony, with stunning sea views. "On summer mornings we like to leave the balcony door open so we can wake up to the sound of the birds singing."
