Property Description

Full description

A beautifully converted barn with annexe, located in the ever-popular village of Nottington.

The Property

The Barn House is a stunning conversion of an original Dorset stone barn with a vast amount of character with five bedrooms and an attached annexe. It was converted in 1979 and forms part of a traditional Victorian Farmyard setting situated in a conservation area and is set within a rather generous plot.

The Barn House provides a well-proportioned and contemporary interior, with accommodation over two floors. On entering the property there is a tiled reception hall which leads on towards a well-equipped Kitchen / Breakfast Room with integrated appliances. Leading on from this is the large Dining Room (24’5 x 12’0) with exposed beam and French doors to the rear garden. The Sitting Room is also generous in size (24’1 x 10’11) with exposed original stone wall, beams and woodburner. Also on the ground floor is a large Double Bedroom / Studio Room with attached en-suite Shower Room. There is also a useful Utility Room linking the main house to the annexe.

On the first floor are three Double Bedrooms and a Single Bedroom/Study. The Master Bedroom has the benefit of a bath which is set under the velux window. A Family Wet Room with walk-in-shower and underfloor heating is also located on the first floor.

The annexe has a separate entrance and offers an open-plan groundfloor layout with modern fitted kitchen and standalone appliances, and a Sitting Room with French doors to the rear garden. On the first floor there is a Double Bedroom with the benefit of a Bathroom with a roll-top bath and separate shower cubicle. At present, the annexe provides an income from holiday lets.

All external timberwork to The Barn House and annexe is mahogany, and the windows are double-glazed throughout.
