Adjoining open countryside in the commuter belt.
Salmonds Hall, which is an unlisted barn, is situated in a small private cul-de-sac housing a collection of period property including its neighbour, Salmonds Farmhouse. The barn, which was converted in the mid-1980s, provides extensive living space with exceptional character and versatility. One of the property's key assets is its wonderful location adjoining paddocks and overlooking the surrounding countryside.
The ground floor accommodation features a central living/dining room with the original midstrey to the barn featuring exposed timbers rising two floors into a vaulted featured ceiling. The room is overlooked by a galleried landing or occasional living area. Adjoining the central reception room, double doors open into a delightful sitting room with Inglenook fireplace with a log burner and a further set of double doors open onto the terraces and garden. Adjacent to the sitting room is the games room/gym, with sauna and shower and door into the double garage. Further accommodation on the ground floor includes an attractive study with a timber semi-vaulted ceiling - a lovely work-from-home area with windows overlooking the drive, a cloakroom and a kitchen fitted by Smallbone with an adjoining utility and breakfast room.
On the first floor a galleried landing provides a lovely feature overlooking the living/dining space and to the rear tall windows overlook the adjoining paddocks. The principal bedroom has two deep glazed windows framing lovely views of the surrounding countryside, access into a spacious en suite shower room and open-plan to a dressing area (formerly bedroom 5 and easily reinstated should a fifth bedroom be required). There are three further bedrooms and a sumptuously appointed family bathroom.
A large area of car parking is situated in front of the barn which in turn gives access to the attached double garage, 22.6 ft x 18.6 ft, with twin electric up-and-over doors and incorporating a good deal of storage space. The gardens to the rear of the barn are predominantly lawned with established borders and numerous fruit trees. The gardens adjoin paddocks with a manège with views beyond over the countryside. A terrace wraps around the back of the house and behind the living room is a large area, ideal for al fresco dining. Behind the barn, to the south, is a paved yard with two island beds and mature borders. Within this area planning permission was previously granted (now expired) for a two-storey rear extension with a loft conversion including roof lights (planning no. 15/00595/FUL).
