About this property

  • Dating to the 1600s, and originally belonging to neighbouring Pullens Gate, The Barn was imaginatively converted in the early 1960s into a wonderful family home by Thomas Rayson, a well known local architect. With nicely proportioned, flexible accommodation of 2499 sq ft arranged over two floors, it provides excellent family living and entertaining space of considerable charm and character.

    On the ground floor, the entrance hall leads to the principal reception rooms, including the welcoming drawing room with a striking stone fireplace, a separate sitting room and a dining room with bay window overlooking the garden terrace. The kitchen has a walk-in pantry, and there is also a downstairs cloakroom and boot room.

    On the first floor are five bedrooms and two bathrooms, together with an additional cloakroom.

    A long driveway leads down past the property to a detached single garage. The extensive paved terrace leading from the drawing room is ideal for al fresco dining, and is bordered by trees, plants and shrubs, including a magnificent Magnolia. Steps lead down to the garden which is partly wooded, laid to grass and interspersed with trees, plants and shrubs.
