    About this property

    • Threshers Barn is a light and airy Grade II listed barn conversion in a terrace of three, set back from a quiet country lane. It is beautifully presented and offers stylish accommodation arranged over two main floors plus mezzanine. The Barn boasts a vaulted living and dining area on the first floor, showcasing the incredible structure of high, honey-coloured oak beams and has oak floors and delightful views to both aspects, front and rear. A staircase leads to the mezzanine level, currently used as a cosy reading area/snug.
      The open plan living area has a kitchen to one end with an extensive range of fitted units and integral appliances. A door leads through to a useful utility room, WC and a study (which could be utilised as a fourth bedroom if required).

      The entrance to the barn is via tall glazed doors to the front, which open into a light double-height entrance hall. The three double bedrooms are situated on the ground floor, each with a fitted double wardrobe. The principal bedroom has an en suite shower room whilst the main bathroom (with bath and separate shower) serves the two remaining bedrooms.

      Outside, to the front, a pathway leading to the front door is flanked by the south-facing lawn. Beyond this is a further area of lawn bordered by hedging and featuring a number of ornamental trees.

      To the rear is a small lawn plus an attractive communal orchard garden for the benefit of all residents.

      Adjacent to the garden at the front is a substantial outbuilding, providing ample storage, or it could be used as a games room or upgraded to serve as a home office (subject to obtaining the necessary permissions). There is dedicated parking in the communal parking area for two cars, plus spaces for visitors.
