The property
Completed just under 4 years ago to an exacting standard, The Old Dairy Barn is a fabulous family home that offers substantial accommodation over 2 floors and has the added benefit of a self contained annexe, if required.

The barn has been carefully crafted and imaginatively designed, and includes a fabulous kitchen/breakfast room which is certainly the 'hub of the house' as it lies between the sitting room and the family room; perfect for day to day modern living.

The accommodation, which is set over 2 floors, not only extends to nearly 4,300 square feet, but offers a real sense of 'volume' in light of the feature vaulted ceilings over the hallway/landing, family room and in bedrooms 1 & 2.
The interior decor is most stylish in design and much thought and attention has been given to the technology and power efficiency by way of Cat 5 wiring being installed throughout and solar panels.
