Description

Guide Price £1,500,000-£1,600,000. Fine Homes Property are proud to present this fantastic opportunity to purchase South End Barn, a significant and impeccably restored barn conversion, sat behind grand electric gates in the heart of the Buckinghamshire countryside yet conveniently located for connecting with London and Milton Keynes. The accommodation is vast including four very large reception rooms, stunning kitchen breakfast room, four double bedrooms and much more. There is an array of outbuildings including the garden/party barn, connected stables, a detached stable block as well as a detached garage. South End Barn enjoys a large garden with duck pond as well as a five acre paddock with equestrian facilities.

If This Was Your Home... - Head through your electric gates and stroll up the sweeping, gravelled driveway and the possibilities are as endless as the sheer square footage. Let's start in the main house, already expertly restored to the highest possible standard.

Step inside and your 360 square foot kitchen and breakfast room is first on your right, and one of the property's most impressive spots. Praise indeed in a place like this. Flooded with natural light from the multi-aspect, and full of original timber columns and beams, the original architecture is very much in evidence here, elegantly integrated with contemporary designer style.

Large format flagstones run underfoot, and a huge breakfast bar and chef's island take centre stage, finished in Royal blue to complement the equally impressive Royal Blue Aga sat opposite, below a herringbone splashback. A flank of soft cream cabinets complete the scene while offering a full suite of appliances including space for a large American style fridge freezer. In the kitchen you can have a sofa as well as bar stools at the breakfast bar making it the most sociable of spaces.

Double doors open it all up to your dining room which is a recent addition to this family home. 160 square feet with terracotta floors and a rear wall of bi-folding patio doors framing picture-perfect views of your stunning gardens and duck ponds, with your great green fields beyond all the way to the mature trees on the horizon.

It's a breathtaking view and we'll be out amongst it before long.

For now let's return to your kitchen and head into the sitting room. Another superb example of the original architecture, in here you have period timber floors underfoot and more exposed beams overhead.

The whole space comes in at a vast 420 square feet, with a classic wood burner sat in the exposed brick hearth for those winter evening. More floor to ceiling windows and French doors open the sitting room up to the grounds. We'll get out there shortly.

Off the sitting room, you have a handy and substantial study, an artfully divided space characterised by bespoke built-in blue cabinets, an exposed brick wall and more of those large format flagstones. This room lends itself to a multitude of different uses if desired. There is a door from the study leading to your garden.

Following the wing round, we come to some of your first opportunities for further development; two stables and a store room, all of about 160 square feet apiece and ideal for turning to use as extra bedroom, study, hobby rooms or whatever takes your fancy. Alternatively they make fantastic extra storage spaces.

Elsewhere, two more similarly size stables also await your attention, along with a massive 320 square foot double garage. These are to the rear of your garden accessed via the sweeping gravel driveway beyond the main electric gates of the property.

Finally the wing is completed by another triumphant sociable space, your 360 square feet garden room or party barn as we like to call it. Original timber beams are set into the vaulted ceiling, and one entire wall is finished in floor to ceiling windows and patio doors, for grand widescreen views of your vast rear lawn.

It's an utterly luxurious spot, bringing the outside in. It lends itself to a variety of uses such as a bar, entertaining space, office, annexe, games room or much much more.

So let's finally take a turn round the grounds.

Your enormous, immaculate lawn is of course the real eye catcher, offering a vast amount of space for garden parties and outdoor activities of all kinds. A duck pond sits in one corner, below mature trees, while further along the rear boundary you have a gravelled seating area with a number of raised planters.

Patios run between the lawn and buildings, many secluded by screening greenery and creating all sorts of perfect barbecue spots. And of course beyond the fence there's your five acre paddock with nothing but Bucks countryside views on the horizon. The garden is enclosed by post and rail fencing perfect for a family space to keep an eye on the children and keep pets enclosed.

Moving round to the front of the property you have that huge gravelled drive accessed through the electric gates, with more than enough parking space for the grandest of occasions.

Back into the main house, this time taking a left after the front door, for your first two bedrooms, both light, airy and spacious and the second complete with en suite shower room.

In here you have royal blue timber panelling to shoulder height and a walk in rainfall shower, finished from top to toe in white letterbox style tiling.

A WC and utility room complete the ground floor. Now let's head upstairs for the crowning glory - your second storey is the most perfect marriage yet between the building's original architecture and sleek modern design.

Step onto the landing for original timber and vaulted ceilings. Your family bathroom is on the right, with skylights set into the high ceiling a freestanding clawfoot tub and beautifully sizeable rainfall shower inset with more tilework from top to toe.

Across the landing from the bathroom is another bedroom, a substantial double steeped in original style with a wealth of artfully arranged timber beams.

Finally your principal bedroom ties everything together perfectly. 170 square feet and beautifully bright with twin skylights in vaulted ceilings, French doors and glazed surround opening up to glorious views over your immaculate lawn and the skyline beyond. A comprehensive and conclusive combination of original architecture, modern design and those huge expansive grounds.

Local Area - Outside and, despite your peaceful rural location, a twelve minute drive to Leighton Buzzard and thirty three minute train journey will get you to London Euston in well under an hour door to door.

Alternatively the arterial M1 is just twenty minutes’ drive away.

Closer to home, the village of Stewkley provides charming local pubs to eat and drink, a local shop walking distance away, village hall and recreation ground all making for a buzzing local community in the heart of the Buckinghamshire countryside. For golfers Aylesbury Vale Golf Course is less than thirty minutes on foot other options include Woburn Golf Club which is currently the only club in the UK to have three courses all ranking in the top 100 in the UK.

School options are second to none with an outstanding primary school in the village and then in catchment for the Aylesbury Grammar schools with a bus running from the village. Cottesloe secondary school is well respected and close by. There are also an array of fantastic public schools a short drive away.

General - South End Barn has been refurbished to the highest standard to provide modern luxury finishes while also retaining all of its charm with character features throughout. The Property is connected to mains drainage, mains gas, electricity and water.
