    About this property

    • Set in the tranquil hillside, Browside Barn is a very impressive residence transformed from a substantial 18th century barn, resulting in a wonderfully contemporary countryside home with an amazing amount of creative and versatile living space. Approached along a private gravel driveway the property stands within a generous garden, adjoining paddock and stables overlooking stunning views of the High Peak. Designed to make the most of the unopposed views, the property has been beautifully appointed, sympathetically and tastefully restored whilst preserving the distinctive architectural features of the barn. Traditional features include exposed timber beams over the walls and ceilings, oak doors and large open spaces. Modern design elements include large amounts of glass, UPVC windows, aluminium doors, underfloor heating, plantation shutters, Karndean flooring, log burner and a bespoke modern style kitchen. The combination of these unique and distinctive features has resulted in an exceptional property consisting of four bedrooms all with en suites and four reception rooms extending to 2952 sq ft.

      The fully glazed entrance flows into the hallway with Karndean flooring and access to the kitchen/dining area, formal living room and cloakroom. The highlight of the downstairs accommodation is the attractive and open plan kitchen and dining room. The modern style kitchen boasts a generous central island, contemporary units, Quartz work tops and Karndean flooring with underfloor wet heating. High specification appliances include Bosch double ovens & induction hob, integrated dishwasher, American fridge freezer, a boiling tap and a Franke sink. The kitchen opens via aluminium bifold doors onto an Indian Stone terrace perfect for alfresco entertaining whilst taking in the views with steps to the gardens beyond. To the left of the hallway lies the living room with a log burner and stone hearth, the aluminium bifold doors open out to a second stone terrace overlooking spectacular views of Kinder Scout and Eccles Pike. The living room flows into a second hallway with access to the laundry room, study and a sitting room. The impressive sitting room benefits from a dual aspect, bespoke cabinetry, timber beams dating back to 1700 and cream carpets provide the perfect sanctuary for relaxing and admiring the views. The study has fitted cabinetry and also has a storeroom with hot and cold water feeds which could be converted into a bathroom and additional bedroom if required. A fully fitted laundry room with space for a washer and dryer and 1m wide Belfast sink with shower attachment completes the downstairs accommodation.

      An oak staircase leads to the first floor landing with a delightful window seat and floor and ceiling spotlights. The surprising space of this home continues on where there are four good sized double bedrooms with vaulted ceilings and fitted wardrobes. The principal suite is particularly indulgent with space for a king sized bed, fitted wardrobes, vaulted ceilings and planning permission in place for the window to be extended above the bed (HPK/2024/0160). The principal en suite benefits from a free standing bath, double basins and a rainfall shower with attractive views of the surrounding fields. The three remaining bedrooms all have fitted wardrobes and contemporary en suites. Externally the property sits in greenbelt land with equestrian facilities comprising of two stables, tack room and open fronted hay barn.
