About this property

  • Model Barn House is a deceptively spacious and well-presented property offering versatile space situated down a private tree lined drive. Part of an exclusive collection of seven converted barns, completed in 1985, the property benefits from a wealth of character features and good ceiling heights. Maintained to a high standard by the current owners and with the flexibility of a spacious ground floor bedroom the property will suit a variety of buyers. The setting backing onto open countryside, whilst being so accessible to an array of local towns and villages really sets it apart from other properties.

    A light and spacious, dual aspect dining room with wooden floor is cleverly split by a part partition to provide a formal hallway area and a separate dining area creating a wonderful space to entertain and with a sliding door onto the landscaped garden. The dual aspect kitchen is a generous size, with base and wall units a range of integrated appliances and ample room for a dining and separate seating area. Adjoining the kitchen is a very useful utility room with a door leading to the external side passageway, providing access to the front and rear gardens. There is also a WC off the hallway.

    A real focal point for the house is the impressive drawing room, which is another spacious room featuring wooden beams and a working open fireplace. The room also benefits from enviable views over the garden with open countryside beyond and access to the terrace via sliding doors.

    Located on the ground floor, the principal bedroom is a generous size and features a wall of fitted wardrobes and an en suite bathroom. The first floor provides a gallery landing leading to three further bedrooms, one with a recently upgraded en suite shower room. There is a family bathroom, which has also recently been upgraded. Bedroom three is spacious and has room for an en suite shower room to be created or could offer the opportunity to link to a potential extension to provide a further en suite bedroom, subject to necessary planning consents.

    To the rear of the property and with access via a side passage is a generous, enclosed landscaped garden backing onto open countryside. A terrace provides a wonderful space for alfresco dining and entertaining. The garden has been very well cared for and includes mature trees, lawn, water feature, well stocked borders and a summerhouse. In front of the house there is a paved courtyard providing ample off-street parking and a further landscaped garden area. The property also benefits from a large double garage with potential for alternative uses or conversion, subject to any necessary permissions.

I was taken aback by the space that Model Barn House offers. It has a lovely feel and it is easy to see why our clients have been there for almost 20 years. I love the mature garden and the outlook over open countryside.
