Property description

Tenure: Freehold

The perfect no-hassle “easy-living” home for those who love all things equestrian. A contemporary barn conversion in an accessible but rural position set in approximately 7 acres, with stables, horse walker and outbuildings / garaging.

Steed Barn is a contemporary barn conversion with superb equestrian facilities offering those with a busy lifestyle the perfect low-maintenance and stylish home in an accessible yet rural position. The house has been beautifully designed and is light and airy throughout with the cleverly designed accommodation providing the loveliest views from the main living spaces on the first floor.

A large glazed front door and side panels let light flood through into a spacious hall. A wide oak staircase leads up to a galleried living space with open vaulted ceiling where there’s room to create a large dining space and further area for comfy chairs. To one side of the landing is a spacious contemporary kitchen / dining room with fully glazed doors opening onto a side balcony with ample room to dine alfresco. Again, the vaulted ceiling gives a heightened sense of space and the attractive kitchen is fitted with a range of units including storage cupboards and deep pan drawers with oak worktops incorporating butler style ceramic sink. The units incorporate space for a large fridge / freezer, eye-level dishwasher integrated double NEFF ovens, walk-in larder cupboard to one side with ample shelving and substantial central island unit with light granite worktops incorporating NEFF microwave, large halogen hob and discreet island extractor. The island unit provides ample space for casual dining but there’s also plenty of room for a substantial dining table. To the front there are further full-length windows with juliet balconies. Beyond the galleried living space there is a further dual aspect separate sitting room again with full length French windows and juliet balconies fitted with black-out blinds. There is also a useful first floor cloakroom.

On the ground floor are three double bedrooms, including a master bedroom with en suite shower room and a spacious family bathroom with suite including spa bath and large separate shower cubicle. There is also further built-in storage for coats etc.

A separate utility room opens to the outside giving useful access to the undercover deck and garden. The utility room is fitted with cream shaker style units, further butler style ceramic sink, integrated fridge and built-in storage for coats and shoes. To one corner is a further downstairs WC useful if you’re popping in from the stables or garden.

A gated driveway leads to a large parking and turning area at the front of the house, which also provides access to THREE DOUBLE GARAGES with up and over doors. To one side is a substantial timber STABLE COMPLEX comprising FIVE LOOSEBOXES and a further TACK ROOM with plumbing, power, bridle and saddle racks. There is a further HAY STORE to one side. Adjoining the stable block is a mechanical HORSE WALKER and a pathway leads down to a manege / outdoor school.

Adjacent to the property is a lawned garden with borders, two storage sheds and greenhouse. There is also an outside tap. The useful undercover area adjoining the utility room door is fitted with non-slip decking, and an external staircase leads up to the large non-slip balcony adjoining the kitchen / dining room.

The paddocks lie immediately adjacent to the property and the majority of the land is visible directly from the house. The northern boundary of the property follows the line of the historic canal workings and to one corner is an area of copse which is also included in the sale.
