A charming and spacious conversion with south to south west aspect, set in delightful mature gardens of about 0.85 of an acre.
Willow Barn is a most charming Grade II Listed conversion, beautifully presented and with the feel of a spacious farmhouse with a good mix of open plan living and defined rooms, providing a good flow to the house, together with flexibility. The house is set well back from the road, with the main living area and elevations orientated at the rear of the house, enjoying a delightful south to south-west facing gardens of about 0.85 acres.
The house was sympathetically converted in 2004, taking care to retain character yet create modern living. This has subsequently been enhanced by the current owners who have reconfigured the internal layout, added storage and extended the house to create a spacious kitchen/breakfast room. This large open plan area enjoys bi-fold doors and glazing on the south and south-west aspect, giving fine views of the gardens and access out to the main terrace, ideal for outside dining. Other notable rooms on the ground floor include the comfortable living room, with double height vaulted ceiling, floor to ceiling windows and wood burner, a sitting room with wood burner, striking entrance hall and study. A side entrance leads on to a large utility/second kitchen, with a further reception room suitable for a variety of uses with loft above. All bedroom accommodation is on the first floor, with a lovely master bedroom with en suite shower room, a fourth bedroom currently configured as a dressing room, a family bath/shower room, and a mezzanine landing to two further double bedrooms.
The house benefits from underfloor heating to the kitchen/breakfast room and living room.
Willow Barn is approached form the east, over a private gravelled drive sweeping up to the house and parking and turning area. This large area adjoins the car port and garden store.
The gardens and grounds of Willow Barn are a wonderful feature of the property, thoughtfully landscaped to create many points of interest and totalling about 0.85 of an acre. A substantial terrace adjoins the house from the south to the south-west, ideal for outside dining, with a sheltered seating framed by high hornbeam hedge and willow weave fencing. The terrace is bordered by gravel paths, box topiary and lavender beds with expanses of lawn sweeping away from the house, leading into other areas of the garden. These include silver birch avenues, wooded area, orchard, rose beds, a delightful pond with decking, a summer house and established kitchen garden with fruit cages.
The gardens open out on to surrounding farmland, with established boundaries of mature hedging and fencing.
