MAGNIFICENT BARN CONVERSION WITH ANNEXE, QUADRUPLE GARAGE, OUTBUILDINGS AND LAND A very large L-shaped barn converted into two very spacious houses together with a one bedroom annexe. Extremely versatile and easily re-configured accommodation into one larger dwelling. Ideal for an extended family with dependent relatives. Subject to planning permission and negotiation of a covenant there is potential for holiday lets, bed and breakfast, or further living accommodation. Beautifully presented and full of character features with delightful views over the surrounding countryside and also to a fabulous central garden. In all approximately two acres.

The Property - A magnificent range of traditional stone barns that offer huge amounts of accommodation and are extremely versatile with potential for many different uses. The barn has handsome stone elevations with brick lintels and attractive wood painted windows. It is currently divided into two separate dwellings but could easily be amalgamated into one substantial home for a very large family. Both properties have separate entrances and there is scope for a variety of uses (subject to the necessary consent) such as a holiday let or bed and breakfast. The barns overlook a central courtyard which is a real feature of the property and there are also far reaching views over the surrounding countryside. Both the main barns have three double bedrooms (giving six bedrooms at first floor level) two of which have en-suite facilities. In addition to this, there is another double bedroom (bedroom seven) with en-suite shower room at ground floor level, alternatively this could be used as another reception room. Both barns have fitted kitchens, dining rooms and sitting rooms and both have independent oil fired central heating boilers.

The gardens and grounds surround Rosemerryn and extend to approximately two acres with large lawns with an array of mature shrubs and plants. The enclosed courtyard garden enjoys a sunny aspect and there is also a large enclosed vegetable garden. The one bedroomed annexe includes a fitted kitchen, sitting room and bathroom. There are further substantial outbuildings ideal for hobbies and perfect for those looking to work from home. A private driveway provides plenty of parking and the whole site is very private.
