About this property

  • Roxborough Stables is a superbly presented modern barn conversion, completed in 2019 and finished to a high standard. The single storey detached property offers lateral living at its best, with charming weatherboarded and flint exteriors, in keeping with the barn's original purpose, cleverly combined with clean, fresh contemporary interiors with oak and tiled flooring, light, neutral décor and quality bathroom fittings.

    The property offers light and bright accommodation extending to approximately 1,919 sq ft, with the outbuildings offering a further 894 sq ft. The floorplans give an excellent overview of the full layout, and should be used as a guide to the full extent of the property.

    Points of particular note include the superb sitting room, with a vaulted ceiling and fully glazed west-facing elevation, fitted with solar UV protected windows which frame the beautiful outlook across the countryside and giving a wonderful sense of space. There are two doors providing access to the terrace.

    The open plan kitchen dining room is also vaulted, and has a striking granite-topped island, contemporary grey gloss units, Bosch oven and microwave, AEG induction hob and French doors to the terrace and garden. There is a separate utility room lying off the hallway, offering connections for the usual appliances, plenty of storage including an airing cupboard, and a side door to the garden; opposite the utility room is a cloakroom.

    The principal bedroom lies at the eastern end of house, and has fitted cupboards and an en suite bathroom with an oval free-standing bath and a walk in shower. There are three further bedrooms, two with en suite shower rooms and one which could be used as a study/home office.

    Outbuildings and Grounds
    Roxborough Stables is approached from Streat Lane via short portion of driveway over which the property enjoys right of access, shared with its two closest neighbours. This opens to the gravelled parking area ahead of the house and its timber framed open-bay double carport with generous attached garden store. Beyond the carport is a panelled fence and a row of yew trees, which are protected by a restrictive covenant.

    To the south of the house is a large former agricultural barn, which is currently used as a games/garden room. This outbuilding offers excellent potential for conversion, subject to the terms of the covenants affecting it and also to obtaining the necessary planning permissions and consents.

    The garden lies mainly to the west of the house, with panelled and post and rail fencing at the boundary; gates to either side of the house ensure the rear garden is fully enclosed. There is a sunny west facing terrace adjacent to the house, with the remainder of the garden laid to lawn, in harmony with the surroundings. About 0.65 acres in all.

I loved Roxborough Stables from the moment I arrived. The impressive vaulted living room and huge kitchen are both great entertainment spaces and the rural outlook is simply lovely.
