About this property

  • Barlings is a single-storey family home, with a versatile layout of accommodation, including a separate one-bedroom annexe. It also has great potential to update and alter (with the relevant consents).

    The main house has a generous entrance hall, from which the principal rooms are accessed. Through double doors is the sitting room, which is south-facing. It has an open fire and extends through to the garden room, with French doors into the garden. The dining room is directly adjacent to the kitchen and, therefore, has the potential to be opened up to create one large room. The kitchen has a range of fitted cupboards and integrated appliances, including a double oven and hob. Alongside is a walk-in larder, which has the benefit of being north-facing. A utility room has a sink, built-in cupboards, plumbing for a washing machine and a door to a side path, accessing the annexe.

    The principal bedroom, with wide views over the garden, has an en suite bathroom. There are two further bedrooms in the main house, one with an en suite bathroom and one with an en suite shower room.
    The detached annexe was converted from a single garage in the early 1990's and now comprises of a double bedroom, kitchenette and shower room.

    A double garage adjoins the opposite side of the house, with a study accessed from within.

    The property is approached from the quiet, no-through lane via a sweep of driveway to the front of the house. There is a generous swathe of lawn, with a central gleditsia tree draped in clematis, separating the house from the lane. The rear garden faces south/south-west and is extremely sheltered and private. Laid predominantly to lawn, it has herbaceous borders, fruit trees and an area of south-facing terrace.

I love the peaceful location, easy access to local services and the fact that there are lovely walks straight from the property.
