Full description

The Grade II Listed Barn dates from 1780 when it was built as stabling for the Old Greetham Inn, one of the original Great North Road staging posts. It is now totally transformed into a stunning family home that excellently combines the original fabric and character of the eighteenth century barn with the benefits of a modern twenty-first century residence. The original vaulted ceilings and many of the rafters and wall timbers have been preserved and integrated, as well as features such as the old stable cobbles and arched stage coach doorways. Distinctive local honey-coloured stone features in many exposed areas of the walls, all of which are now enhanced by solid-wood hand-crafted doors and windows. Amongst the many modern features are under-floor heating throughout the ground floor, an integrated hoover system in all rooms, TV and telephone points throughout. The kitchen/breakfast room is a truly stand-out reception space with a highly contemporary, yet practical design and high quality fittings. Lawn and decking surround the property with each of the ground floor rooms opening out to the garden. All of which make this a truly unique property with the potential to be a stunning home.
