About this property

  • 3 Lower Farm Barns is a contemporary, barn style family home set well back from the road with a wide, shingle drive leading up to a small community of three homes in this development. The barn is a well laid out, stylishly presented family home with light spacious accommodation extending to approximately 2,100 sq ft arranged over two floors.

    The front door enters the house into a double-height, vaulted reception hall and sitting room with a log burner, wooden floors and exposed beams. Double doors lead through to a recently re-fitted, handmade kitchen with Corian work surfaces and dual aspect views of the gardens. There is ample space for a dining table in the kitchen which makes the space both sociable and functional for family life. The garden doors open out to a paved terrace in the garden, ideal for summer barbecues.

    Just beyond the kitchen is a room currently used as a play room but could be used as a fifth bedroom or self-contained annexe as it has a full bathroom, kitchenette and its own entrance as well as a cloakroom.

    Upstairs, four good sized bedrooms lead off a galleried landing. At the far end, steps lead up to the master suite with an en suite shower room while the other three bedrooms have access to the family bathroom.

    Outside, the private garden faces east and west and is mainly laid to lawn with trees and mature shrubs creating a border. There is also a triple garage which could be converted into either a separate one bedroom annexe or a home office, subject to the necessary planning permissions being granted, as was the case in 2018 but which have now expired.
