About this property

  • Pelling Barn is an impressive and striking property, with much character and an extensive footprint. Originally two houses, it was cleverly converted to one residence and offers potential to further convert (STPP).

    The well-presented accommodation is arranged over two floors and has a versatile layout which offers a number of configurations that would suit both families and intergenerational living. The house was recently redecorated in parts and offers a largely neutral palette, with exposed beams, good ceiling heights and a mix of tiled, wood and carpet flooring.

    Lying off the entrance hall is an impressive room which could be used as dining hall for formal occasion, or as a games room/gym, with access to the front garden. Beyond lies a study/home office. An inner hall leads to the drawing room, which features a central chimney breast set with a stone mantelpiece and working fireplace; the drawing room opens to an adjoining sunroom and both rooms have doors opening to the terrace.

    A large kitchen/breakfast room lies to the east of the inner hall, fitted with an excellent range of bespoke solid wood cabinets complemented by granite worktops, a matching central island, LPG range cooker, dishwasher and space for breakfast table and chairs. Beyond the kitchen lies a dual-aspect sitting room with French doors to the rear and an adjoining ground floor bedroom with fitted wardrobes and an en suite bathroom. This suite could provide self-contained accommodation if required. A utility room and separate cloakroom complete the ground floor.

    From the drawing room, stairs lead up to the largest bedroom and its en suite shower room. There are two further bedrooms and a family bathroom accessed via stairs from the inner hall.

    Adjoining the drawing room are two large rooms, currently used as storage space and accessed via the neighbour's driveway. These rooms have a footprint of approximately 436 sq ft and offer potential for conversion to provide further accommodation incorporated into the main house, or as a self-contained annexe, subject to obtaining any required consents.

    Pelling Barn is situated behind a wall with electronically controlled wood gates, which open to the driveway ahead of the house and the detached double garage. There is side access to the rear garden, with a brick paved rear terrace giving space for table and chairs; beyond lies the heated outdoor swimming pool, which has paved surround; a brick outbuilding houses a shower, WC and the pool machinery.

    The gardens lie mainly to the rear of the house and are largely laid to lawn with established mature trees and flowering shrubs.

    The paddocks lie to the north and have their own access to the main road. In all, about 6.09 acres.
