The Property
According to historians Old Haversham is an area of continual habitation from the pre Roman times, and Hartwell Barn features round stone supporting pillars with Staddlestones on top, which is rare and unusual.

Originally a traditional courtyard range of farm buildings to Hill Farm, the courtyard was converted by the renowned local developer Bastian Homes, to create four individual properties with Hartwell Barn completed in the spring of 2005.

Set within a private walled garden, Hartwell Barn offers potential purchasers the opportunity of acquiring a stunning barn conversion presented to a very high standard, and offering generous and flexible accommodation. Designed as a seven bedroom barn, the layout is very adaptable and the single storey range could easily provide an independent two bedroom annexe if required.

The landscaped garden enjoys a high degree of privacy and the perfect environment to unwind, relax and entertain. A viewing will be essential to fully appreciate the extent and flexibility of the accommodation and the lifestyle opportunities it offers.

The Accommodation
A fully glazed door with sidelights opens into the reception hall linking the main stone barn to the brick single storey range. French doors open onto a west facing walled courtyard. A flight of steps lead down into the part vaulted dining hall with exposed oak flooring and wooden staircase gently rising to the first floor galleried landing. French doors open onto a south facing paved terrace.

The sitting room lies beyond with stone fireplace housing a Woodwarm wood burner, sitting on a stone hearth. The room also enjoys access to the paved terrace.

The kitchen/breakfast/family room is well proportioned and enjoys wonderful views over the front garden with direct access onto the paved entertaining terrace. Cream painted bespoke Shaker kitchen units adorn two walls with matching island unit, incorporating breakfast bar, with granite work surface and inset stainless steel circular sink.

Cooking facilities are provided by a red four oven electric Aga with six ring hob and extractor hood above.

Integrated appliances include Liebherr fridge and freezer, along with John Lewis dishwasher.

The utility room lying off the hall incorporates fitted Shaker base and eye level units with inset Butlers sink, and plumbing for both washing machine and dryer. To the other side of the front door is the study.

At the far end of the reception hall is an inner hall providing access to three double bedrooms, one benefitting from a fully tiled en suite shower room and currently used as a gym with French doors out onto the west facing courtyard. The two remaining bedrooms are served by a family bathroom with airing cupboard adjoining, housing Tribune pressurised hot water cylinder.

First Floor
The master bedroom suite lies off the galleried landing and enjoys southerly views over open farmland. The tiled en suite includes free standing roll top slipper bath, glazed corner shower, along with a pair of Roca sinks, low level W.C. and heated towel rail. The large walk-in wardrobe features both hanging rails and shelving.

An inner landing leads to three double bedrooms, although two have currently been amalgamated to create a double with dressing room and marble tiled en suite shower room. The remaining bedroom is served by a marble tiled family bathroom which lies at the end of the landing.

Hartwell Barn benefits from a large double garage with additional storage/workshop. Access is via two electrically operated up and over garage doors, along with a separate pedestrian door. Lying in the corner of the garage is the Grant oil fired central heating boiler.

Garden and Grounds
A pair of wooden security gates open onto a gravelled drive, which gently rises up to the barn allowing access to the paved parking area lying in front of the two garages. External boundaries are defined by stone walls offering the property a high degree of privacy and protection. The garden has been landscaped with mature herbaceous borders edging areas of lawn on either side of the drive.

A paved terrace runs the entire length of the southern elevation and is ideally suited for entertaining. Lying across the drive is a further paved patio seating area and concealed behind cane fencing is the 3,000 litre oil tank.

A block paved path edged by hard landscaping leads up to the front door. A private west facing walled courtyard which is accessed off the reception hall has mosaic paving and a water feature.

Haversham is a thriving village community set in the Ouse valley surrounded by water meadows and lakes. It has a public house, lower school, playgroup, community centre and a sailing club operates on the lake. The village enjoys a rural position close to many country walks yet is very accessible to junction 14 of the M1 motorway. Extensive leisure and shopping facilities are available in Milton Keynes whilst the market towns of Olney and Newport Pagnell offer high street shopping. The area is well served by schooling both state and private and there is a dedicated bus service from Newport Pagnell to the renowned Harpur Trust Schools in Bedford. Wolverton station is a 5 minute drive providing a mainline service of approximately 45 minutes into Euston, with Milton Keynes station a 15 minute drive with Virgin Service to Euston in 30 minutes.

From junction 14 of the M1 motorway proceed north on the A509 signed to Newport Pagnell. At the first roundabout proceed straight over into Newport Pagnell and at the roundabout on the High Street turn left and proceed out of town turning right into Little Linford Lane. Proceed to the ‘T’ junction in Little Linford and turn left signed to Haversham. Mill Road will appear on the left opposite a Dutch Barn and proceed down Mill Road taking the first left and the entrance to the barn will shortly appear on your left.
