About this property

  • Ridge Barn is an attractive single storey barn conversion constructed mainly of Cotswold stone beneath a slate roof. The property has been extended over the years to create a versatile and spacious family home. The current owners have refurbished and modernised throughout to create a stylish and practical home, whilst retaining the original character and charm of the barn. The property is situated on the outskirts of the town, approximately 360 metres from the Market Square and its excellent amenities.

    The welcoming entrance hall leads into a light and bright sitting room with French doors overlooking the front garden and fireplace with wood burning stove. Beyond the sitting room is a part-glazed dining room, with double doors out to the garden. The kitchen, which adjoins the dining room, is fitted with an excellent range of hand painted wooden units beneath granite worktops with an integrated range cooker, dishwasher, fridge and wine fridge. The utility room is very well appointed with granite worktops, integrated fridge/freezer, fitted units and space for a washing machine and tumble dryer. To the rear is a useful study which leads to a playroom, which could also be used as a larger office, if needed.

    There are five excellent bedrooms, four of which are doubles, and the generous principal bedroom has an en suite bathroom. There is also a family bathroom and separate cloakroom which offer scope for reconfiguration.

    The property is set back from the road through double gates with ample graveled parking for several cars. There is an area of lawn and mature hedging ensures privacy. To the rear is a large paved terrace, lawn and low maintenance beds. The rear garden faces west which ensures sunny spots throughout the garden at different times of the day.
