    About this property

    • This beautifully presented, fabulously appointed stone barn conversion occupies an enviable position in an elevated position, with great privacy, and with southerly views from most principal rooms over its almost two acres of gardens and land to glorious rolling countryside beyond.

      The abiding sense on entering Hatchers Barn is one of natural light, volume and space. Every surface that the eye dwells on also underlines the quality of workmanship, fittings and finish to this fabulous home. The principal accommodation all faces south, and with a multitude of French and bi-folding doors opening from the house to landscaped terrace and gardens, this is a home that has a wonderful flow and a convivial layout, for active families, or those that simply enjoy inside-outside entertaining and living.

      Accommodation
      The house is entered into an oak floored vaulted, double height reception hallway, with exposed roof trusses above galleried landing overlooking, at the centre of the oversized ground floor, with its four generous reception rooms and spacious family kitchen.

      Double doors open from the hallway to the east, to the drawing room, and west into the impressive family dining kitchen, with a door to the north into the snug. There is a very easy flow between all the rooms, with many double doors leading from one space into another, as well as connecting with the outside.

      The kitchen is a standout room, fitted with a bespoke suite from QKS of Stamford, with solid wooden units beneath composite stone worktops, incorporating an electric four-oven Aga supplemented by eye-level double ovens and an induction hob, within the large island unit. The room is divided by thirds, with the fabulous kitchen, within which you can cater on a grand scale occupying a third of the room, a large dining area in a third, and the southern third arranged as a fabulous dual aspect family area, with fireplace housing an enamelled Jotul wood burner, and sets of French doors opening to the garden. The large utility room, off the kitchen is also fitted with quality units, with a pantry, concealed dog shower and separate W.C.

      From the reception hallway, the 28' oak floored drawing room also has a wood burning stove in its fireplace and external French doors, whilst it provides access to the Study/Garden room and cinema room. The dual aspect study has two sets of French doors to, and fabulous views of the terrace and gardens, and is a wonderful place to work from, with a wall of bespoke shelved bookcases and storage. The cinema room, and snug, both have French doors to a rear courtyard garden, linked by a rear hall wrapping around the staircase, with a second wc/boot room.

      At first floor, the galleried landing offers far reaching views over the garden and field, as the land falls away down the hill to the south. The five bedrooms are all generous doubles. The principal and guest bedrooms are both spacious, at 35' front to back, with generous wardrobes and full en suites; the principal bedroom also has a Juliette balcony and a large dressing room area. The three other bedrooms share a fully fitted bathroom, one of which it is Jack & Jill to.

      Outside,
      The property is tucked away, accessed from the hamlet's no-through lane, along this property's drive, over which one other house has a right of access in part, and through an electric five-bar gates. The lovely view is apparent immediately on entering, as the gardens, whilst a four-garage block is to the right. There is plenty of space for stabling, if wished.

      The beautifully landscaped gardens are bordered to the east by a high brick wall, and is essentially divided into three terraces, linked by flights of steps. The top lawn leads from the house, surrounded by mature shrubs with some specimen trees; the middle lawn features a summerhouse in one corner and a paved area catching the evening sun in the other; the bottom terrace includes a kitchen garage and orchard, with apple, pear and plum, with soft fruit blueberries, raspberries, and strawberries.
