About this property

  • Originally part of the old farm as a cowshed dating back 200 years, The Old Barn, constructed of stone under slate roof, was later converted in the 90's. The property has continued to be sympathetically improved and updated throughout the years of current ownership, but still retains a wealth of period and character features throughout.

    Entry to the property is through a beautifully open entrance hall. With floor length windows, it is a light and welcoming area. The sitting room is of good size with fireplace and multi fuel burning stove, exposed stone walling and original beams. The kitchen has been recently updated providing integrated appliances, an induction hob, granite worktops and a variety of different work spaces/units. There is also space for a good size dining table, perfect for social gatherings in the hub of the home. There is also an impressive family room/ cinema room full of gadgets. There are stairs leading to a storage room, which has potential to be converted to a bedroom with the appropriate planning regulations. Bi folding doors lead out to the front garden, making it a wonderful place to relax in the summer – there is even an air conditioning unit.

    The ground floor also has a study ideal for working from home or other flexible use, a downstairs cloakroom and a utility room with space for a washing machine and tumble dryer, and lots of storage.

    The first floor comprises of a landing leading to the principal bedroom. It is a spacious room and has traditional high vaulted ceilings, original beams and exposed stone walls. There is also a modern en suite shower room. Next to the principal room is a cot room which is currently being used as a dressing room. There are a further three generous bedrooms, one with an en suite shower room, a family bathroom and a separate WC. All bedrooms have fantastic views.

    Outside offers impressive front and rear gardens. To the front of the house there is a cobbled path leading to the entrance door. There is a manicured lawn with flower beds, mature trees, shrubs and a pond. There is even a decked area, perfect for barbecues. To the rear there is a fenced patio, decking area and newly covered terrace space, ideal for alfresco dining or summer entertaining with sun all day long, a wonderful lawn and a gravelled orchard.

    The garden also has two pods. Both have underfloor heating and one has plumbing with kitchen facilities and a bathroom. They are very versatile, with potential to be used as an outside office or even to create a space for outside living. Extra outside storage includes a stable block with three units and a good sized workshop.

    The plot sits in about 2.01 acres. About 1.6 acres is paddock land and a secondary pond. There is a lot of potential for development to the rear of the property, subject to relevant planning permissions.

    The property occupies an enviable position, approached by a gravelled drive with shared access. There is good privacy and security with electric gates to the front, and there is also ample room to park numerous cars.

    In summary, The Old Barn offers fantastic, flexible and versatile accommodation. Wonderful gardens and privacy to be enjoyed with lots of potential to develop and set in an ideal location with easily accessible amenities.

The Old Barn is such a rare find with its rural uniqueness, yet so close to town amenities! I think it's the best of both worlds!
