    • Occupying a countryside setting, The Barn is a delightfully individual, architect designed property comprising a series of barns which have been imaginatively converted into a unique and flexible four bedroom family home. A further substantial adjoining artist studio/barn has been granted planning (Ref 23/01118) for conversion of workshop area of barn to habitable accommodation with associated external alterations.

      The ground floor features interconnecting open plan reception rooms, with the central vaulted reception room having a wood burning stove and two staircases, one leading up to a mezzanine studio/study and the other to the principal bedroom. The well proportioned kitchen/breakfast room with wood flooring and enjoying a dual aspect, is fitted with modern cupboards. Appliances include a Rangemaster cooker and integral dishwasher. There is space for a fridge/freezer. A utility room houses the boiler and has space for white goods.

      There are three attractive ground floor bedrooms, a family bathroom with slate flooring and an en suite shower room, both are fitted with white sanitary ware.

      The property is approached over a private 'no through' road with double gates opening to the parking area. The well established garden lies mainly to the rear with a terraced area, raised beds together with apple and olive trees and it continues including a generous area of wild garden. There are a number of paddocks and to the north of the house lies the stable block with three stables, a tack room and hay / feed barn.
