3 bedroom barn conversion for saleEast Mill, Halstead, Essex
The streets we hurry through to work contain many points of interest we seldom have time to notice. 'Mill Barn' which was the original granary barn for East Mill is one such hidden gem.
Mill Barn is a beautifully presented barn conversion believed to date back to the early 1800's. The lower level is constructed in brick and stone with a timber framed first floor all under a slate tiled roof. The house is beautifully presented throughout, offering an abundance of character and unique living accommodation.
You enter the house from the lane through a heavy oak panelled door and arrive into a raised reception area which is open plan to the sunken living room. From here a slotted stair case ascends to the first floor, steps lead down to the living room, and a door opens into the kitchen/breakfast room. The living room has a 3 meter high ceiling with exposed timber studwork and ceiling beams. There are an array of windows of different sizes and at different heights which flood the room with light and combined with the high ceiling create a stunning living space.
The kitchen/breakfast room seamlessly combines a fine bespoke fitted kitchen with the character of the barn and includes a good range of cupboards offering plenty of storage. There is a combination of granite and wooden work surfaces providing ample space for food preparation. The work surface is inset with a stainless steel sink which is positioned under a window overlooking the courtyard. A bespoke dining table is partially divided from the kitchen by timber studwork around which a central island has been built offering additional work surface and storage. A floor to ceiling window at the front offers additional light and a door at the rear gives access to the courtyard.
After ascending the stairs you arrive on a first floor landing. From here doors radiate to three bedrooms and the family shower room. All of the rooms are full of character with exposed beams and studwork. Bedroom three is a good size single and bedroom two is a double room with built in storage cupboards in the chimney side recess. The shower room has a modern suite with shower cubicle, WC and hand wash basin. The master bedroom is vast with windows to the front and rear, built in storage and a modern fitted en-suite bathroom with further WC and wash hand basin. Both the shower room and bathroom benefit from windows to the front. Access to the additional first floor room is through the master suite. Currently used as a snug and study the room is versatile and could potentially be used as a forth bedroom.
Outside the garden starts with a sunny courtyard to the immediate rear of the barn. The courtyard has an arrangement of potted plants providing a border to the rear boundary. The garden then continues at the side with access to the garage. There is a path and right of way across the neighbouring garden giving access to a un-overlooked south facing garden which is a tranquil place in such a central location. The garden is mainly lawned, with a well established garden with summer house and potting shed.
