About this property

  • The property is a sympathetic and attractively converted barn which had significant input from the renowned local architect Huw Thomas. This fine property has undergone significant improvement with the current owners resulting in a quite fantastic living environment. The open plan kitchen/breakfast/family room is a magnificent living space, a recently fitted kitchen makes a real impact with an impressive range of floor and wall mounted units including cupboard and drawer sections with work surfaces over. A large central island with low level breakfast bar is a real focal point and the large electric Aga really completes the farmhouse feel. There is a large area for the breakfast table as well as sofas, making this living space a real hub of the house and with doors opening onto a large terrace it is the ideal arrangement for entertaining. A updated utility area links in particularly well making a practical arrangement for modern day living. The principal reception areas include a fantastic vaulted sitting room with central fireplace and a study area tucked away behind, this is a really great room.

    A large dining/garden room with central fireplace really does interact well with the external environment and enjoys a fantastic outlook over the grounds and countryside beyond, an excellent reception space. At first floor there are a total of four bedrooms including a principal bedroom with en suite and a further guest suite with en suite facilities. The remaining bedrooms are serviced by a Jack and Jill bathroom.

    OUTSIDE
    The property is approached via electric gates which open on to a large driveway which provides parking in the front of the house as well as a secondary drive to the side providing plenty of parking/turning. The grounds extend to about 1.3 acres and offer a fantastic space for outdoor recreation and relaxing. Double doors opening out of the kitchen/breakfast room area on to a terrace which provides the perfect space for outdoor entertaining. The formal gardens are to the rear and are easily accessed off the dining/garden room. Principally laid to lawn there is some particularly attractive planting throughout the grounds which give a good degree of interest throughout the year.
