About this property

  • Redwood Barn is a stunning barn conversion, with wonderful period features including exposed timbers, original brickwork and slate roof, set in beautiful grounds.

    Originally part of a 19th century home farm, Redwood Barn has been expertly converted, with subsequent extensions and remodelling by our clients, into a fabulous family home.

    The accommodation, principally on one floor with an additional first floor bedroom, comprises well-proportioned and light-filled rooms, with high ceilings, oak flooring and under floor heating throughout.

    The bespoke kitchen, hand-built by Orwells Furniture, has granite work surfaces and an island with breakfast bar, a gas range cooker, Belfast double sink, cleverly designed pantry cupboards and integrated appliances.

    French windows in the dining area lead on to the terrace and provide views of the garden and surrounding countryside.

    This leads to the charming sitting room, with French windows to the rear garden and front courtyard. An oak-beam fireplace with a wood-burning stove is shared with the spacious living room, with floor to ceiling windows overlooking the courtyard and fields. Beyond the living room is a study with a glazed door to the courtyard.

    The building has four bedrooms and a further one-bedroom annexe; it could easily be used as a substantial five-bedroom house and a ‘work from home' space with its own entrance.

    The principal bedroom is especially elegant, with vaulted ceilings, built in wardrobes, en suite, floor to celling windows and glazed door, allowing direct access to the courtyard; an anteroom provides a dressing area with further wardrobes and storage room.

    There are a further two double bedrooms and a family bathroom on the ground floor, with an additional double bedroom on the first floor. The first-floor bedroom has plumbing and scope to create an en suite.

    The fully self-contained annexe has its own entrance and access to the main house. It comprises a generous sitting room with ample storage, air-condition system and view of back garden; double bedroom with en suit; and bespoke kitchen with integrated induction hob, oven tower, dishwasher and space for washer/dryer.

    OUTSIDE
    Access is via an electric 5-bar gate leading to the delightful fully fenced garden, excellent terrace with mature borders, vegetable garden area, expansive lawns and lower field with views of a lake and open countryside.

    At the front is a sophisticated courtyard garden; accessible from the main drive by double gates allowing vehicle access if required.

    Ample parking and a double garage, with an EV charging point, workshop and studio.

Redwood Barn is an outstanding house in an elevated position. I love the sense of light and in the house - many of the reception rooms have wonderful floor to ceiling windows and vaulted ceilings.
