A lobby area leads to a study with built-in shelving and storage and also to the integral double garage. A well fitted utility/boot room with cloakroom and door to the outside completes the ground floor accommodation.

The gardens lie to the rear and side and are enclosed by mature hedging, wall and post and rail fencing. The side and rear of the barn is mainly lawn with well stocked shrub borders and lovely easterly views over the paddock, valley and countryside beyond. In the garden there is a fire pit seating area with dry stone walls, a perfect position to enjoy the view. The swimming pool is well positioned in a secluded location to the side of the garden and has a terrace seating area and lower level decked seating area, behind clipped box hedging. To the rear and side of the garden is an L shaped paddock accessed via a pedestrian gate from the garden and a vehicular gate from a lane.
