About this property

  • Situated in a Conservation Area in the heart of the village, Mulberry Barn is a most impressive stone barn, Listed Grade II and believed to date from the 1700s. Of grand proportions, the property was converted and meticulously restored in 2014 by the current owners.

    Mulberry Barn offers the best of both worlds, retaining immense character, with features such as exposed stonework and timber beams, the recent conversion and renovation works benefit from a 10 year warranty.

    The grand reception hall has a vaulted ceiling opening up three storeys and impressive staircase rising to a galleried landing on the first floor. The main living area is focused around a large L shaped wing incorporating the kitchen, dining and sitting areas. With glazed bi-fold doors to two walls the light floods in. There is underfloor heating with oak and limestone flooring denoting the separate spaces. The bespoke kitchen with a central island has a 4 oven electric Aga, Neff oven, 2 dishwashers and Fisher & Paykel fridge and freezer. The rear entrance from the kitchen conveniently leads to the utility/boot room and cloakroom. The sitting room has a Chesney wood burner set in a huge stone fireplace with points for a flat screen television over. The drawing room is cosy, also with a Chesney wood burner, it provides space away from the main family area. Also on the ground floor is the principal bedroom suite, with large built in wardrobes, the en suite bathroom has a walk in wet room area with twin showers, his and her basins and a free standing bath. On the first floor, which also benefits from underfloor heating, there is a bedroom with fitted cupboards, en suite bathroom and novel staircase to a third floor bedroom ideal for teenagers wanting living and sleeping areas. There are four further bedrooms on the first and second floors, one en suite and a family bathroom.

    Outside, Mulberry Barn is accessed over a shared drive and into a hedged gravel parking area. In 2018 an impressive and beautifully appointed detached annexe was added that provides a large reception room with kitchen, double bedroom and shower room. There are French doors to the front, exposed oak beams, fireplace with wood burning stove and oak flooring.
