Impressive period barn conversion in over 1 acre.
Set in a glorious rural position, The Old Barn is an exceptional period barn conversion offering fabulous accommodation with a number of impressive and memorable rooms throughout. Dating from the 1800's, the barn which is not listed, was completely rebuilt 25 years ago by the current owner and is constructed from the original oak frame with timber cladding and a clay tiled roof. A notable feature of the property is the ground source heating system and solar panels.
The front door opens to a spacious hall, a cloakroom and leads to the living room.
The drawing room is a truly magnificent room filled with light with its grand vaulted ceiling and generous proportions, ideal for entertaining guests and family living. There is a generous sized living area with feature log burner, adjoining kitchen and a staircase leading to a galleried library. Three further reception rooms can be found on the ground floor comprising dining room, television/family room, large conservatory, and a study.
The contemporary family kitchen has a vaulted ceiling and built-in appliances with steps up to a galleried breakfast area, and a separate utility room.
There is an adjacent guest bedroom/au pair suite that could potentially be incorporated within the kitchen to provide a huge family kitchen.
There are a total of seven bedrooms and five bathrooms. The inspiring principal bedroom with vaulted ceiling has built-in wardrobes and a raised double-ended bath and an en suite shower room. There is a balcony which enjoys views across the garden and surrounding farmland.
The long tree lined driveway has a right of way and is shared with the nearby old farmhouse and cottage.
The Old Barn sits in a private and tranquil position surrounded by neighbouring farmland. The delightful mature gardens measure approximately 1.1 acres with areas of lawn, flowering beds and a number of specimen trees. Of particular note are the feature ponds and resident wildlife.
To the front of the property is a large detached granary store, a car port, garage and ample parking space for several vehicles.
A neighbouring paddock is available to rent, subject to negotiation.

This is a really super barn, I love the approach up the long drive, the wonderful views, the vaulted ceiling in the drawing room and outlook over the pond.Alastair Mercer
