Full description

An idyllically situated barn conversion which sits within 1.2 acres of paddock and gardens.

Introduction - Robin Barn is tucked away off the beaten track on the outskirts of the hamlet of Woolscott just south of Dunchurch in leafy Warwickshire. The barn was converted by the present owners some 19 years ago and has been developed into a well appointed family home in a peaceful rural location. There are four double bedrooms, master with ensuite and a family bathroom, whilst on the ground floor there is a large sitting room, dining room, refitted Fraser James kitchen/breakfast room, utility room, cloakroom and snug. As expected with a rural barn conversion, there is a variety of features including exposed beams, A frames and attractive exposed brick work. Outside there is a large stable/workshop which previously has had planning permission to be converted into a one bedroom annexe and could provide excellent ancillary accommodation to the main house for a independent relative, subject to a new application being successful. There are gardens that approach approximately 0.26 of an acre and beyond the gardens is an attached 0.96 of an acre paddock providing an attractive lifestyle opportunity for a buyer, that enjoys peace and tranquillity, yet has the convenience of towns and villages within a few minutes’ drive.
