Due to the overall shape and design of Castle Barn each room is individual and offers charming character features. Step inside through remarkable solid oak doors and into the main entrance hall that is large enough to be utilised as a reception room. There are character features such as an exposed stone wall and both wall and ceiling beams. These are features found throughout much of the property.
As you step down into the magnificent family room measuring almost 40ft by 18ft your eyes are torn between looking at the enormous inglenook fireplace with a woodburning stove and the floor to ceiling windows on either side, that not only let light flood the space but also frame views of both the courtyard garden and the immaculate walled rear garden.
In addition to the family room is a cosier sitting room that also benefits from having a woodburning stove. French doors open out to the rear garden and an internal door opens into the office. Like most of the rooms within Castle Barn the office has a pleasant outlook across the garden.
Taking pride of place in the kitchen is a deep red claret 4 oven Aga, flanked by a range of attractive floor and wall cupboards, complemented by Granite worksurfaces. The Belfast sink is placed under a window overlooking the garden. Integral appliances include a dishwasher and a tall Liebherr fridge and freezer. The current owners hang and dry fresh herbs within the kitchen grown within the grounds of the property.
Two double en-suite bedrooms are located on the ground floor allowing residents of the property to live solely on the ground floor should they wish to do so.
Completing the ground floor are a cloakroom and a useful utility room.
A staircase at the rear of the family room leads up to the principal bedroom suite. It is an extremely generous room with French doors opening out to a Juliet balcony. When you look out onto the Mediterranean style courtyard visions are conjured of Romeo and Juliet. A walk-in wardrobe spans across the width of the room. The spacious en-suite bathroom comprises of a ball and claw bath, wash hand basin, separate shower cubicle and a w.c.
In addition to the main house is a 2 bedroom self-contained annexe. The main living area has polished wooden flooring and a kitchenette. The kitchenette comprises a range of gloss units, a stainless steel sink and integral appliances include an oven, electric hob, slimline dishwasher and an undercounter fridge. The 2 double bedrooms are a good size, enjoy a view of the garden and share a separate shower room.
Castle Barn is surrounded by immaculate landscaped gardens amounting to approximately a third of an acre. We have been advised by our vendors that the gardens have been designed specifically for year-round flowering and fragrance. The Winter months offer Sweetbox and Christmas Rose, while in early Spring through to Summer you can expect Camellias, Skimmia Japonica, Wisteria, Clematis, Lilac and Mock Orange. Autumn provides numerous Hydrangeas and Climbing Jasmine. All of these wonderful specimens we are told attract wildlife to include butterflies, bees, dragonflies and birds. The herb garden currently stocks wild garlic, chives, rosemary, thyme, sage, oregano, mint, parsley and dill. Fruit grown in the garden includes Gooseberry, Raspberries, Rhubarb, Apple and there are two grapevines.
The walled garden at the rear has a well-manicured lawn and an upper pond, with a waterfall cascading down into a lower pond. Newts are known to live in the pond. Terraces are available outside the main house and annexe for relaxing and al-fresco dining. Some mature trees provide privacy from neighbouring properties.
The courtyard garden has a central circular pond and a variety of established plants making it feel very Mediterranean. A stone seat captures the morning sun.
Castle Barn benefits from having two parking areas. The main entrance has an electric gate, parking for several vehicles and leads to a garage. The second entrance via a private lane and stone pillars provides parking for several vehicles. Gates from the private lane provide access onto the land.
The land is split into two separate fields and slopes away to the west. A wonderful view of Castell Coch can be appreciated. The land is suitable for grazing or potentially equine interests. There are no stables at Castle Barn but there is space to erect some subject to gaining any necessary planning consents.
