Property description

Tenure: Freehold

Wonderful barn conversion in third of an acre.


The property is set off a private road on the edge of the hamlet of Water End and enjoys a lovely outlook over the River Gade. This delightful Grade II listed property is believed to date back in part to the 16th century and boasts many character features, not least a wealth of exposed timbers.

The property stands within delightful mature gardens and within an overall plot of 0.33 of an acre. The house enjoys a vista over the river Gade and is only one of five houses on the edge of Water End.

This attractive spacious family home is approached off a private lane that runs parallel to the river. There is a detached oak-framed garage and gravel driveway, which provides parking for several cars. The garage benefits from a loft, which may have scope for conversion into an office or games room, if required and subject to planning consent.

The accommodation briefly comprises a sizeable dual aspect sitting room, which is galleried to the master bedroom and features an inglenook fireplace and beamed ceiling. There is a dining room with windows to the front and rear, a good size kitchen/breakfast room with reclaimed pine units with granite worktops and terracotta floor tiles by Fired Earth. There are four double bedrooms, one of which is on the ground floor and benefits from a conservatory overlooking the rear garden. There are two bathrooms and a separate WC.

Agents note - the owners currently rent an area of pasture land to the front of the house and abuts the river. We have been advised by the owners that they pay a Peppercorn rent to lease this land.
