    About this property

    • Believed to date back 300 years, The Old Black Barn was converted in 2005 and more recently extended to form a substantial and generously proportioned family home. This impressive and beautifully presented property has brick, flint and weatherboarded elevations over a brick plinth under a slate and pantiled roof with double glazing, underfloor heating to the ground floor and fitted alarm. This stunning barn conversion is of considerable character, with a wealth of attractive features including vaulted ceilings, exposed timbers throughout, fireplace housing a wood burning stove and oak doors and floors. Particular features of this fine barn are the well-proportioned reception rooms, including a magnificent vaulted 865 sq ft family room with expansive views to the west and bi-fold doors, generously sized bedrooms with extensive gardens and grounds including an enclosed walled garden off the kitchen with herbs and flowers.

      The Old Black Barn is set well back from Lords Lane and is approached through an electric five bar wooden gate leading to a gravel driveway providing parking for several vehicles and access to the cart lodge comprising four bays/garages (two with lockable doors). The gardens and grounds offer privacy and seclusion and enjoy fabulous distant countryside views. The garden is enclosed by close boarded wooden and post and rail fencing with large expanses of lawn, enclosed walled garden, raised flower and shrub beds, vegetable garden, orchard with apple, pear and plum trees, chicken run and log store. The side of the property enjoys views over the neighbouring pond and there is sensored lighting and three outside taps.
