A beautifully presented barn converted by award winning Heritage Oak Buildings. The spacious accommodation has immense character and combines original features with a contemporary styling to create a unique and welcoming home. The vaulted ceilings with their exposed beams have been retained in most rooms including the magnificent kitchen/breakfast room which includes a Stephen Anthony shaker style kitchen and large double doors giving access out to a superb courtyard garden. Adjoining this room lies a generous utility room with separate cloakroom. The superb sitting room has vaulted ceilings, a Stromboli log burning stove and enjoys full length views and access via double doors to the attractive gardens.
There are three principal bedrooms with the master having a well-appointed en-suite bath and shower room and there is also a fourth bedroom located on the first floor which can be accessed off the study/office. The Barn has double glazing and underfloor heating throughout. Most rooms have fitted New England style wooden shutters and the principal bedrooms and reception rooms have wonderful views over the gardens and adjoining paddocks beyond.
This small select estate of only five other properties is approached via electric wooden gates with a long gravel driveway to the barn itself. The mature gardens are predominantly enclosed by post and rail fencing and the open farmland aspect provides a wonderful backdrop for this stunning barn.
