Property description

Dating from the late 18th to mid 19th century and named after a barn, which once stood in its grounds but has since been demolished, the house is an attractive and substantial Grade II listed townhouse which is well presented and has two storeys with a suite of attic rooms.

The house has retained many period features including sash windows, fireplaces, working shutters and ornate coving in the principal reception rooms downstairs. The property has excellent ceiling heights throughout, which combined with a south facing front elevation and tall sash windows create a light and airy feeling. It has an attractive entrance hall, with a Victorian tiled floor and an elegant, period staircase rising to the first floor. There are three reception rooms, all facing south. The drawing room is particularly striking and is well proportioned, with lovely cornicing and original fireplace. The dining room is also a good size, with a fine fireplace and a serving hatch through to the kitchen. The kitchen/breakfast room has windows on two sides making it light and airy. On the first floor are the large master bedroom with en-suite bathroom, the guest bedroom with en-suite shower room, three further bedrooms and the family bathroom. On the second floor is a suite of attic rooms incorporating a further double bedroom with a walk-through sitting room and a large store room.
To one side of the house there is vehicular access to the rear onto a cobbled parking area, with room for several cars. the coach house has been converted to provide garaging for two cars, with a wine store and extensive storage on the first floor. There is a pretty walled garden which comprises an area of lawn bisected by a gravel path and fringed with herbaceous borders.
