About this property

  • The Old Barn House is a substantial detached stone village house set in a secluded location. The property was formerly a barn and is an exciting opportunity to modernise and extend to create a wonderful home.

    A sturdy timber door opens into the entrance hall which provides access to the generous sitting room which in turn opens into the conservatory with views across the garden. The dual aspect kitchen is a good size and would benefit from a top-to-toe remodel to create a wonderful country kitchen.

    On the first floor are four bedrooms. Bedroom two has an en suite bathroom and the remaining three bedrooms share a shower room and separate cloakroom. Scope exists to remodel the bedroom and bathroom accommodation.

    The property is approached over a large gravelled parking area with a detached stone garage. The property sits almost centrally within the plot surrounded by mature gardens, enclosed garden. Beyond the garden is an area of mature woodland and permanent pasture/paddock.

    Please note that the Aga and wood burning stove are excluded from the sale.

This is a trail blazer! This beautiful barn was converted in the early days of such conversions and is just lovely.
