Property description

Tenure: Freehold

The approach to the stunning 'Spruce Wood Barn' is via a private drive, leading to ample parking, including a double garage. As you step inside the main entrance door, you will find yourself in the first of the stunning reception rooms. Stepping onto the stone tiled flooring, there is a nod to the original building with the exposed brick and flint wall featured in the sitting area. This is complemented by an inglenook fireplace, housing a wood burning stove, for a great cosy feel. This overall space is dual aspect and the glass roof to the rear of this room allows further light to flood in. There are two further rooms currently detailed as studies. These versatile rooms could be utilised by buyers looking for home offices, or possibly to turn one into a children's playroom. The first floor is accessed via the turning wooden staircase that leads from this first reception room.

Moving onto the next reception room, currently used as a games and entertaining area, you are once again met with light and space amidst the vaulted ceiling and the glass frontage, opening onto the walled garden. Our vendors chose to alter the feel of this room with the use of oak flooring and another more contemporary wood burning stove. The single storey kitchen/family room is designed to be the hub of this delightful family home, incorporating a range of wall and base units, integrated appliances and a long kitchen island with quartz worktop. Once again, the space is flooded with natural light double glazed doors, leading to the walled garden. This vaulted space provides ideal areas to cook, dine and relax.

Leading on from the family room, there are two generous size bedrooms and a walk-in shower room, incorporating wall tiles and travertine floor tiles. The master of the two bedrooms enjoys floor to ceiling windows and independent access to the walled garden. This end of the property has the potential for independent, multi-generational living to its single storey.

There is another entrance door to the front aspect, that gives access to a lobby, adjacent to a separate utility room and cloakroom.

The staircase benefits from having LED lighting and leads to a beautiful galleried first floor. This floor serves three double bedrooms. Two of these bedrooms are served by a family bathroom and the master bedroom has its own en-suite, using the quartz and travertine specification.

The gardens of 'Spruce Wood Barn' are mainly lawned, to the front, walled and kitchen garden. The walled garden has a particularly private aspect with its mature trees and the kitchen garden offers the keen gardeners a wealth of potential.
There is ample parking to the front with a shingled driveway and a double garage, with personal doors to both the main residence and the kitchen garden. The property is located in open countryside, boasting amazing views over open farmland. Our sellers have made what was a shell when they bought it, into a beautiful family home that should be viewed to fully appreciate.
