A separate two bedroom converted barn that has been purpose built as a cottage holiday let offers further flexibility and income.
Ground Floor - The property has an extremely spacious, open plan feel and solid oak flooring covers much of the ground floor. A large entrance hall features a seemingly floating oak staircase with LED down lights and metal pin striped balustrade.
A large wrap around reception room is flooded with natural light through a number of large picture windows and bi-fold doors opening on to the south facing terrace. The sitting area is arranged around a large open fire with stone surround. The kitchen family room is a particular feature of the accommodation boasting a high vaulted ceiling. Again flooded with an abundance of natural light, the kitchen spills out onto a wrap around terrace which enjoys countryside views to three sides....
The kitchen family room is very much the heart of this exceptional home, offering ample space for family and friends to gather and the generous sitting area complete with log burner is an ideal space to relax. The kitchen itself is fitted with a range of ultra modern, high gloss cabinets with white Mistral
worktops and has a large matching island. A range of integrated appliances include a Falcon range cooker, Fisher & Paykel DishDrawer dishwasher and an instant boiling and filtered water tap. There is also an integrated audio system with Cambridge speakers .
Adjacent to the kitchen is a walk-in pantry which has space for extra kitchen appliances. Further living accommodation includes a spacious family room with connections for a wall mounted TV and picture windows and glass door opens onto a west facing terrace with a slate water feature. A fully equipped utility room with external door and two cloaks/WC complete the ground floor accommodation.

The principle bedroom is particularly impressive, enjoying a southerly aspect and uninterrupted countryside views. Oak bi-fold doors from the bedroom open onto a wrap around balcony which has an oak and glass balustrade. A fitted dressing room and two matching en suite bathrooms, each with a free standing bath and walk-in wet room style showers.
Second Floor - Bedroom two occupies the entire second floor, enjoying panoramic views through three Velux windows and its own luxury en suite with wet room style shower.
