The substantial property is one of the early barn conversions and is packed full of character. A stone driveway through a traditional 5 bar gate leads from the lane to the side of the property to a large parking area which gives access to both the main house and annexe.

This room has a multitude of uses and with the windows to all sides surrounded by the picturesque garden manages to bring the outside into the main house and also gives access into reception hallway/sitting room, a stunning room which has been designed as the main feature of this beautiful property. The impressive 2 storey beamed and vaulted ceiling creates the feeling of space yet with an impressive open fire manages to keep a cosy and welcoming space. The reclaimed parquet flooring is just one feature demonstrating the attention to detail that went into the original conversion.

A door from the reception leads into the side hall/study, a more recent amendment by the current owners to create an ideal space for teenagers or grandchildren coming to stay.
