Harvest Barn is a perfect example of an 18th century Threshing Barn, located in a conservation area and forms part of a hamlet of six listed buildings. The area has particular special interest for the illustration of the development of a small Regency country villa estate. The property sits inside a beautiful 19th century flint walled garden and borders the neighbouring Alscot Lodge, set within a parkland setting of historical interest recognised by the Bucks Gardens Trust. The property is surrounded by glorious protected countryside and enjoys a private setting with views in every direction. Harvest Barn is Grade II listed and has been meticulously restored and renovated by the current owners to an exceptional standard, with thoughtful design giving a perfect flow to the rooms. There is a host of character features including an abundance of exposed timbers, brickwork, oak flooring and vaulted ceilings. An added benefit is a charming self-contained detached annexe.
The magnificent vaulted reception hall creates a wonderful first impression, and opens into the dining room with views over the rear garden. An attractive red cedar staircase leads to the galleried landing above giving stunning views over the frontage. Lying off the reception hall is a sitting room, with French doors opening on to the garden and terrace, and a well equipped study, with fitted shelving and storage. The kitchen/breakfast room is bespoke fitted with a comprehensive range of units complemented by composite stone worktops. Integrated appliances include an electric hob, double oven, dishwasher with space for a fridge/freezer. The kitchen opens into a dining area, with plenty of room for a table and French doors to the rear garden. A utility room, just off the kitchen is of a good size with storage and space for appliances. A door from the kitchen leads to the side of the house. On the other side of the reception hall are two bedrooms, both with beautifully fitted en suite wet rooms. A cloakroom completes the accommodation on this floor.
On the first floor is a stunning vaulted drawing room with a host of exposed beams together with a galleried mezzanine. This is a beautiful dual aspect room with elevated garden views and an inglenook fireplace with a wood burner. The principal bedroom also enjoys a vaulted ceiling and exposed beams with storage and a luxury en suite shower room. A further bedroom overlooking the rear garden, is served by a well appointed family bathroom.
Harvest Barn enjoys a quiet and picturesque setting. Electric gates open onto a spacious drive together with the original cart shed providing covered parking, together with an attic and workshop. The property enjoys a large attractive frontage with areas of lawn and well maintained beds and borders. A large ornamental pond is a particular feature and the frontage is interspersed with a variety of mature trees including a cherry, silver birch, maple and hawthorn giving a good deal of interest. A clipped arch hedge leads to the rear garden which is wonderfully private. The garden is mainly laid to lawn and is enclosed with high yew hedging and 19th century flint walling, and a terrace area adjoins the house. To the side is an attractive granite terrace seating area and grape clad pergola, providing a perfect spot for outside entertaining. A potager area lies adjacent with raised planters. The self contained annexe is located at the front of the property and is a delightful converted small barn with its own terrace. An open plan vaulted space allows for a seating and sleeping area, with a kitchen and en suite shower room. A mezzanine area is perfect as a study/home office with far reaching views.
