About this property

  • This period Grade II listed barn dates back in parts to the 16th Century. Much of the original character has been retained with exposed timbers and period brickwork providing much interest.

    The current owners have worked their way through the house and have carefully enhanced and refitted the interiors to a very high standard. There is a bespoke Neptune fitted kitchen with integrated appliances, coordinated island unit and ambient lighting. The flooring is Fired Earth flagstones.

    The entrance to the house is via a gated frontage, within the primary gates to the close itself. There is parking for around eight vehicles, both within and outside of the driveway, leading to the double bay cart lodge.

    A galleried reception hallway leads to the sitting room, which has previously been used a bedroom, family bathroom and another bedroom which features a bespoke-built walk in wardrobe. There are stairs from here to the first floor landing.
    The principal ground floor room is the open plan kitchen / dining / lounge with lots of character, flagstone flooring and exposed beams and brickwork. Off here is a lobby area leading past a bespoke Neptune secondary kitchen, utility room and bespoke Neptune housekeeper's cupboard into another ground floor bedroom suite with its own en suite. This area benefits from its own separate entrance, and with the working kitchen and en suite studio could immediately be used as an annex, with an internal door currently separating it from the main house.

    The first floor is where you will find the principal bedroom and guest bedroom, both with en suites. The vaulted drawing room is a stunning reception space with exposed timbers and great ceiling height. Currently used a grand entertainment space there is plenty of space for a big dining table and a separate, snug, seating area.

    On the outside, the gardens are enclosed and feature a raised courtyard to the back of the house, stepping down to a lawn area and a further decked seating space. There is parking in front of the double cart lodge and this leads into two further rooms - one a gym (with satellite TV and internet) and the other a garden store which could be converted to a home office subject to planning.

    As mentioned before, the title for this house extends into Blamsters Rise itself and as such provides lots of extra parking.

A magnificent barn with the most amazing first floor, vaulted reception room as its centerpiece! I love the private sun trap garden and the security and piece of mind that the close itself offers
