A magnificent barn conversion in the wonderful Chiltern countryside, overlooking the Hambleden valley.
The Flint Barn is a magnificent barn conversion which dates back to 1750. The main barn has beautiful brick and flint elevations, enhanced by the weatherboard cladding to the adjacent barn which is linked by a glazed walkway. The barn was extended in 2014 and now offers light and flexible accommodation which is beautifully presented throughout.
The open plan drawing room has a vaulted ceiling with exposed timbers showing the structure of the original barn and full height windows and doors which open to the west facing garden terrace. There is a large fireplace housing a wood burning stove and a lovely herringbone wood floor flows through to the kitchen and dining room which also has high
windows and doors opening to a south facing terrace. The kitchen is double aspect, well equipped and has a range of painted floor and wall units around a large central island. From the kitchen, internal doors open to a separate study/bedroom 5, utility/boot room and a staircase leading to a charming mezzanine sitting room which overlooks the kitchen and drawing room beyond.
From the drawing room a door leads to an inner lobby and bedroom 2 which has an en suite bathroom with shower. The principal bedroom is accessed from the entrance hall via a dressing room superbly equipped with fitted cupboards and wardrobes opening to the spacious bedroom which is double aspect and has doors opening to the garden. The en suite bathroom is cleverly divided into bathroom with twin basins and
shower room with basin and WC. Also to the ground floor is bedroom 3 with en suite shower room and stairs from the entrance hall lead to second floor bedroom 4 and en suite bathroom.
The Flint Barn is accessed from the lane onto a gravel driveway
opening to a large private parking area for several cars and to the front of the double garage block. This comprises housing for two cars, plant room and storeroom.
The drive runs between the garage and main barn opening to a
pretty courtyard garden and main entrance. This private space is landscaped using topiary evergreens and climbing plants along both barn elevations and there is a south facing terrace, accessed from the kitchen/dining area. Doors from the drawing room open to the west facing terrace and onward to gardens and grounds which are mainly laid to lawn and interspersed with trees and shrubs. More formal gardens are laid to either side of the terrace and provide the perfect place to enjoy these glorious surroundings. A haven of peace in a
wonderful location set high in the Chiltern Hills.
