About this property

  • Graces Barn Farm is a stunning architect designed house replete with six bedrooms, open plan living, studio and party barn. Built in 2007 on the site of a former barn that incorporated an existing stable cottage, the property offers a very unique living space.

    Approached by a well sheltered wood panelled porch the entrance hall is both unassuming and inviting. Aesthetically, the hardwood stairs leading to the first floor hints at strong architectural design with considered material choice and a high quality of workmanship which is apparent throughout the property.

    A step further and you are transported to a light and airy open plan reception area with double height vaulted living and dining room which is accentuated with floor to ceiling windows. A glazed mezzanine floor immediately above adds interest to the space offering an intimate living room seating area before a large open fireplace.

    To the left you have a spacious open plan kitchen finished to a high specification, and a lovely seating area with French doors leading out into a tranquil walled courtyard garden.

    The recently renovated studio has created a wonderful large workspace with small kitchenette, bi-fold doors and its own entrance into the garden. Subject to planning permission and building regulations the adjoining party barn and large studio could be converted to create additional accommodation. The house offers ancillary accommodation which is currently run as a successful Airbnb with a 5 star rating.

    The underfloor heating throughout is sourced from a ground source heat pump. This alongside the thermal insulation and solar panels, helps to give this family home an enviable EPC rating.

    Outside
    This contemporary eco home is set within an exceptional landscaped garden designed by an RHS Gold Medal winning designer. The garden features a walled courtyard garden, a formal lawn, a kitchen garden and wildflower meadow with mown pathways and views towards the Chiltern Hills.

    There is parking for several cars on the gravel drive and a two bay car port connected with a double garage / storage area.
