Property description

Tenure: Freehold

The first thing you notice as you sweep onto the gravel drive is the stunning and large Grade II Listed thatched barn in front of you and then you see the lovely house built in 1999, but with character features reminiscent of a bygone era. There is a spacious entrance hall that leads to the elegant L shaped lounge/diner which includes large french doors to a terrace and an attractive stone fireplace and log burner. On the other side of the hall is the open plan family space with its contemporary country style kitchen/dining/family room. The kitchen has an impressive central island with a double width granite worktop, a range cooker and bespoke units housing quality appliances.

Beyond the kitchen are two double bedrooms both with en-suite shower rooms that could make an ideal separate area for elderly relatives, adult children or as a guest wing. The ground floor also includes a large fitted utility room and a cloakroom. Upstairs are three double bedrooms and a family bathroom. One bedroom has two sets of fitted wardrobes, another is currently set out as a study and the third is the impressive main bedroom with a walk in wardrobe/dressing room and an en-suite bathroom. There is also access to plenty of eaves storage.

The garden is surrounded by a high hedge and includes a large lawn behind the barn accessed under a vast wisteria covered pergola and includes a cherry and a walnut tree. The barn is believed to date from the mid 17th century and would make the most superb entertainment complex. Attached are the charming stables that have been converted into an annex incorporating a gym and games room with a shower and catering facilities.

What the Owner says:

“The house is one of 13 individual properties built on the Wootton Estate. The development is very secluded and includes communal green areas. It is very quiet, safe and secluded as we are on a private cul de sac road. We bought the house from new in 1999 as we had fallen in love with the barn and were able to adapt the plans for the new house to our own design. We have loved living here for over 20 years but we feel it is time to downsize and move nearer our children.”
