    About this property

    • Coombe Barn is a wonderful example of a converted 17th century Grade II Listed barn offering spacious, characterful and light accommodation with a superb galleried, vaulted central reception room. There are five bedrooms and four bath or shower rooms. The barn occupies a lovely elevated position with views over its own land and distant views over the valley beyond.

      Coombe Barn is accessed via glazed double entrance doors into the superb vaulted and heavily beamed main reception room. This room is striking with a staircase leading to the long galleried landing above and views over the garden and paddock. Being over 800 sq ft in size this room offers an amazing entertaining space with a lower level wood floored sitting area with a feature fireplace with herringbone brick detail as a focal point. There is exposed brickwork and lovely heavily beamed detail to the walls and vaulted ceiling. Double height, wide windows flood this room with natural light. Adjacent to this room is the snug which has exposed timbers and lovely views over the garden, paddock and countryside beyond. The kitchen/breakfast room is also situated to the rear and enjoys similar views. Fitted with a range of attractive oak fronted units with granite work surfaces, this room has exposed ceiling beams and plenty of room for a breakfast table. The dining room has an almost full width glazed wall with further exposed ceiling beams. To the front of the house is a family room with a secondary spiral oak tread staircase leading to the first floor landing. Off of this is a well fitted shower room. 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 main staircase leads from the vaulted reception room up to the impressive galleried landing area which offers a beamed vaulted ceiling, views over the side paddock and a library area with book shelving. The principal bedroom is elegant and full of character with exposed beams to wall and ceiling with distant countryside views to the rear and over the paddock to the side. There is a dressing area with fitted wardrobes and storage. Stairs lead up to the second floor and the en suite bathroom which enjoys further views and a free standing ‘boat bath' crafted from beech with free standing taps, mounted on an oak plinth – a perfect place to soak up the countryside views. Across the landing is the spiral staircase that leads down into the family room and three further bedrooms which all offer their own character. One bedroom has an en suite shower room and one has fitted wardrobes. The spiral staircase on the landing continues up to the second floor and bedroom five which is a charming room in the beamed eaves with a raised sleeping area and a sitting room area with night cloakroom adjacent.
