About this property

  • This spacious and versatile, detached barn conversion has period features and character aplenty. The accommodation, which extends to over 3,560 sq ft combines granite stonework with timber beams, all refurbished with exacting craftsmanship. The reverse-level layout is perfectly suited to the property, allowing for an extensive open-plan kitchen and living space on the first floor, with a balcony overlooking the gardens.

    The ground floor comprises an imposing reception hall with slate tiled floor and granite staircase rising to the first floor. From the hall there is access to a spectacular living and dining room, with French doors on three aspects opening onto the gardens and a large inglenook granite fireplace with a Wood Warm wood burning stove set on a slate hearth.

    There are three generous bedrooms on the ground floor, all with French doors giving direct access onto the grounds. The principal bedroom suite has a dressing area with a range of fitted cupboards and a luxurious en suite bathroom. The two further bedrooms share a family bathroom, there is also a study/fourth bedroom and utility room on this level.

    The impressive first floor kitchen and living area extends to over sixty feet long, with a Wood Warm wood burning stove set in a granite fireplace as a key feature. Velux windows create a distinct bright and airy feel over the bespoke hand built kitchen cabinets set around a central island and containing an enviable selection of integrated appliances including a four oven Aga, a three zoned drinks chiller, American fridge freezer and Franke instant boiling water tap. Patio doors open out onto a well-proportioned balcony looking out across the garden in a southerly direction.

    The self-contained annexe, independently accessed from the gardens, is perfect for visiting family and friends as it is fully equipped with a kitchenette and bathroom, and also benefits from under-floor heating. It could also be used as an income generating holiday let.

    The gardens and grounds surrounding the house and annexe are just as bespoke and beautiful as the property itself. Approached via a long private driveway and flanked by a neighbouring field to the southeast, the property benefits from a productive orchard, fruit and vegetable garden with a willow copse to the northwest. A huge amount of attention has gone into cultivating this area in a manner sympathetic to supporting the local wildlife, with fruiting trees, rare shrubs, and a small pond. There is a substantial polytunnel towards the property's north eastern boundary, set on the site of a former all-weather sand school.

    The driveway leads to a courtyard in front of the barn and annexe where there is a detached double garage and car port, currently used as a wood store. There is a further outbuilding, which houses the private water supply's pump and filtration system.

    The gardens, wrapping around the rear of the property to the south, include a large slate patio area with sail shade, perfect for outdoor living. The lawns give access to the well stocked beds and borders including an ancient olive tree, and towering tree ferns. Far-reaching views are enjoyed throughout the gardens.

What strikes me most about Higher Rosewarrick Barn is how the property embraces period features whilst using modern technology to create a unique and comfortable space. The heart and soul poured into the gardens is truly inspiring and just as important as the accommodation.
