Full description

A stunning detached barn conversion with fantastic additional outbuildings has recently come on the market. This beautiful family home is situated in a truly idyllic location with breathtaking countryside surroundings. The property is south facing, allowing plenty of natural light to flood in through the five wonderful, original cart arches. Included in the sale are two additional large and very functional outbuildings, that, if converted subject to the necessary consents, could provide you with two superb holiday lets.

We enter the property through a large wooden front door and are welcomed into the main hall with several solid wooden doors leading off, providing us with access to the downstairs reception rooms.

This property has been divided into three separate sections for description purposes, the first of which is the main family residence. The lounge/diner is the first room we come to. This is a fabulous room with stunning solid wood floors and a reclaimed wooden beam ceiling. The room is very light due to the two windows that overlook the rear of the house and the three cart arches that overlook the front. The centre arch contains a pair of doors that open out onto the front garden. There is also an inglenook fireplace with a wood burner which truly enhances the feel of the room.

The kitchen is a good sized family room with a tiled floor and a good number of wall and base units. There is space for a large American style fridge/freezer as well as space and plumbing for a dishwasher. There is a Bosch under counter oven and a large Bosch five burner gas hob with a chimney style extractor fan above. This is a very high quality kitchen with ample storage.

Back down the hallway is a useful downstairs WC with a fully tiled floor, spotlights in the ceiling and a pedestal hand basin.

The utility room is adjacent and is a very spacious room that is fully tiled with a good number of wall and base units, alongside additional space and plumbing for a washing machine. There is plenty of storage and room for another fridge/freezer.

Heading back through the main lounge to the hallway, the property also benefits from a shower room with an electric jet shower, a closed cover WC, and a half pedestal basin.

The next section of this property is wonderfully versatile and could be used as an annexe. A pair of glass panelled wooden doors leads into a lovely light reception room with a feature electric fireplace, the light coming from the full length window in the room. This room has a lovely high beamed ceiling and another set of french doors that lead you to a tiled room that is currently being used as a gym but was previously a good sized kitchen/diner area. This room is a dual aspect and there is a door that leads out to the rear of the property. From this room, you can access the first floor of this annexe section of the property. There is a light open hallway which benefits from a Velux. There are two bedrooms and a bathroom in this section.
The first bedroom you come to is a nice size single with a semi vaulted ceiling and two Veluxes, featuring an electric heater and a built in wardrobe.

The bathroom has a Dimplex electric heater (this property has solar panels that currently have a feed in tariff of approximately £750 per annum), alongside a double sized electric shower, a closed cover WC and a pedestal wash basin. There is also another Velux providing natural light.

The master bedroom in the annexe has a wonderful character ceiling and large full room length windows. It is a good sized double and has two built in wardrobes. There is a lockable door here that leads to the hallway on the first floor of the main house.

The first floor landing in the main residential section of this house has lovely exposed beams and roof trusses.

The main master bedroom is a huge room with more exposed beams and a vaulted ceiling. There is an ensuite that houses a double sized shower with waterfall head. There is a seat by the window and a closed cover WC and a designer pedestal hand basin. On the other side there is a dressing room with wonderful views out over the countryside. The master bedroom is dual aspect with two windows overlooking the front, two over the back and two lovely conservation Veluxs on the roof. It is a truly spectacular room that must be seen.

The second bedroom is a good sized double with a vaulted ceiling and another conservation Velux.

The third bedroom, which is currently used as an office, is a good sized single with cottage character and views over the front of the property.

The family bathroom has a wonderful P shaped bath with a glass screen and waterfall shower taps above. There is a closed cover WC and a pedestal wash hand basin. The room has two windows that have views out across the gardens and lovely exposed roof trusses.

If we go back downstairs and through to the kitchen we come to another staircase and another brilliant aspect to this generously sized barn conversation. Up here is a lovely guest suite with its own private landing. The good sized double bedroom has fabulous views from two conservation veluxes, whilst there is also a built in wardrobe and loft access. This third section of the house also has its own bathroom with close coupled WC, a pedestal wash hand basin and a bath with overhead shower.

As previously mentioned there are two additional outbuildings that have so much potential. The double garage with wooden electric up and over doors has an additional room above that is currently used as a games room; this whole space but could be converted into a cottage. Alongside this is the piggery, which again could be converted or simply be used as a home office or workshop.

The gardens that surround the property on three sides are also stunning and fantastically designed. There are lawned areas with cottage style borders and some raised beds as well as two lovely sitting areas.
