About this property

  • Barkway House is an impressive detached family home, making up part of a small development dating from 1999, which is tucked away in a quiet corner of this sought after village location.

    Barkway House offers 2,500 sq ft of accommodation over three floors, the spacious sitting room provides a great space for family entertainment, a particular highlight being the ornate stone fireplace. There is also a wonderful kitchen diner which invites you further into a versatile sitting area with French doors leading onto a fabulous raised decked area perfect for alfresco dining. The downstairs space also provides WC., family room and utility room.

    To the first floor the principal bedroom provides plenty of built in storage and a modern en suite shower room. There are three further bedrooms all of which have built in wardrobes and share an impressive family bathroom.

    The second floor has two double bedrooms both giving picturesque aspects across the neighbouring countryside. Bedroom six benefits from an en suite shower room.

    The rear garden orientates to the south and is best enjoyed from the raised deck or surrounding patio. The lawn is bound by mature clipped hedges and beds filled with mature shrubs and seasonal planting.

    To the front there is a small garden retained by a dwarf wall and plenty of parking space to one side, in front of a double garage with storage space above.

I particularly love the kitchen diner and the French doors connecting you to the garden where you can enjoy Al Fresco dining on the sun terrace.
