Description - Nestled on the gateway to Heybrook Bay, in the pretty village of Down Thomas, Stags are delighted to offer for the first time since its conversion, Princes Barn, a deeply impressive Barn Conversion which has been a labour of love for our clients over the last 3 decades. Our clients purchased the unconverted barn in 1986 and commenced renovating the year after. Set in a quiet and private location Princes Barn is set in its own generous grounds. This charming barn is believed to be over 100 years old. With a pretty stone face frontage the property has been beautifully transformed and in keeping, with a modern extension creating this exciting relationship between old and new. This will be the first time this property has been on the market since the conversion.
The Barn itself is impressive, boasting a true sense of space, amalgamated with practicality and ease of maintenance. Whilst the design is modern contemporary it is still attractively unique with a twist of character and charm. This attractive 4/5 bedroom family home sits in a highly desirable location, with excellent accommodation over two floors, configured in a tradition lay out. The house is approached via a driveway from the village road adding to the peaceful situation of the property and gently leading to ample parking for 4-5 motor vehicles.
This beautifully appointed barn conversion has been dramatically improved by the current owners over the years, with the welcome addition of a high quality bespoke fitted kitchen and practical recent upgrades.. The accommodation offers a high degree of flexibility and offers prospective purchasers the possibility for further potential.

Accommodation - From the gravelled parking area in front of the large garage a path wiggles to the church style entrance porch, which was added in the mid nineties (along with a room above the garage at the same time). The entrance opens to the deeply impressive hall, with masses of natural light and showcasing the an impressive staircase.
Configured in a delightful manner, Princes Barn is presented across two floors with the main living accommodation on the first level. This beautiful space offers an charming living room complimented by a wood burning stove and exposed beams,. The kitchen is spacious and has been fitted to a superb standard equipped with granite work tops, a tasteful range of fitted cupboards and is arguably the very heart of the property. This well-equipped space is perfect for entertaining and family gatherings and benefits from a spacious adjoining dining room whilst not forgetting the utility/ laundry room, down stairs shower room and integral double garage. The property offers flexible accommodation with the potential to provide a separate axis, if required.
On the first floor you are greeted by spacious and pleasant landing which navigates you to a family bathroom and 4/5 double bedrooms with vaulted ceilings, exposed timbers. The master bedroom is complimented by a large dressing room and en-suite.
The Barn is tucked away from the road, accessed by a private drive with parking for 4-5 cars and double garage with electric remote access up and over door. A plethora of character features enhanced by oil fired central heating and double glazing. A useful garage provides storage.
