This beautiful barn conversion enjoys a truly tranquil and peaceful setting, tucked away along a private country lane with panoramic countryside views, and nestled within gardens and grounds of about 7.6 acres. The current owners skilfully and thoughtfully converted the barn, completing the works in Autumn 2016, and in 2020 fitted an air source heating system. The design was very much focused on spacious rooms, filled with natural light, resulting in a wonderfully unique ambience with many features and of course with great emphasis on an environmentally friendly self build.
The accommodation comprises a generous reception hall with exposed timber beams, porcelain flooring with underfloor heating, and shower room just off. The kitchen/dining/family room is very much at the heart of this beautiful home, fitted with attractive bespoken cabinetry, ample fitted working surfaces with inset one and a half sink unit with mixer tap and drainer, pull out larder cupboard, broom cupboard and corner carousel, electric hob, double oven with extractor over, with space for fridge/freezer and dishwasher and porcelain flooring with heating under. There are stairs to the first floor and French doors out to the garden. Just off is a handy utility room with matching cabinetry, fitted work surface with single sink drainer and space for washing machine and tumble drier, water softener and porcelain flooring. Off the inner hallway, with its exposed timber beams and porcelain flooring, is the dining room/bedroom 5 and with its close proximity to the ground floor shower room, makes it ideal accommodation for visiting/dependent relatives. The dual aspect sitting room is an impressive room with far reaching views over the garden and paddocks beyond, exposed timber beams and a feature wood burning stove.
Upstairs there are four bedrooms including the large master suite with fitted wardrobe cupboards and bathroom, plus a family bathroom.
Outside, there is a generous gravelled driveway providing off road parking for several vehicles and leads to the outbuildings including a garage with electric roller door, workshop, timber store and bike store. There are formal lawned gardens to front, side and rear, with a generous paved patio with pergola over, making it ideal for al fresco dining. The main paddock measures in total 7.6 acres, laid mainly to lawn/pasture and would be ideal for those with equestrian requirements.
