Fully refurbished converted barn in pretty conservation village that dates back to the late 19th century.

Further improved and reconfigured by the current owners during 2015/16 and presented in a contemporary style Dale Acre Barn features an impressive 31ft kitchen, sitting room with log burner, master en suite with fully bespoke glass wall enclosure and large family bathroom. The second bedroom has the benefit of a first floor mezzanine and outside there is ample hardstanding and single garage.

Dale Acre Barn is entered through a half glazed panelled door into a tiled and carpeted entrance hall. Leading off the hallway is an impressive family kitchen with high vaulted ceiling, exposed roof timbers flooded with light through a number doors, windows and glazed roof lights. Three rooms have been combined to create this great entertaining space that has ample room for both dining and soft seating. The kitchen area itself is fitted with a range of coffee and cream coloured high gloss units, with soft close doors and Corian worksurfaces. A large island unit/breakfast bar with inset sink provides the perfect place for friends to gather and there are a range of integrated appliances and space for an American style fridge freezer.
