Superb barn conversion enjoying a tucked away location in the heart of the village.
Enjoying a quiet, tucked away location the building is reputed to be about 400 years old, and is thought to originally have been a Quaker barn constructed using timber from retired sailing ships and relocated to its present location. East Barn has been meticulously updated in recent years and now offers fabulous accommodation of character and charm with features including an abundance of exposed timbers, brickwork and vaulted ceilings. Buckinghamshire Council has identified the property as a Non-designated heritage asset (NDHA).
On the ground floor the reception hall is a generous size, and leads through to the kitchen/breakfast/dining room, overlooking the garden and perfect for both family life and entertaining friends. The kitchen is beautifully appointed with an extensive range of units complemented by granite worktops and mostly Miele integrated appliances. A central island gives further storage and breakfast bar seating. The dining area is flooded with natural light from a wall of windows, beautifully framing the garden, and French doors opening on to the terrace. A fully fitted utility room lies just off the kitchen.
The reception hall extends round to the rear opening into a magnificent vaulted space, full of character with exposed beams and a galleried mezzanine landing above. Just off the hallway is a charming family/TV room, with bespoke cabinetry and exposed brickwork. Adjacent is the spacious sitting room, featuring an inglenook fireplace with a woodburner. Tucked away off this room is a fully fitted home office.
On the first floor are four characterful bedrooms and a well appointed family bathroom. The principal bedroom enjoys a bespoke range of wardrobes and an en suite shower room, while a further bedroom has an en suite shower room and a delightful concealed dressing room. There is extended loft storage with access from Bedroom four via a hatch and drop down stairs.
East Barn enjoys a quiet and picturesque setting in the heart of the village. A gravelled driveway to the side provides parking for several vehicles and leads to a double garage. The front garden is attractively planted with mature shrubs and trees with two charming courtyard areas. The tranquil, rear garden is predominately laid to lawn with well stocked and beautifully maintained borders, while a large paved terrace adjoins the house giving an ideal spot to BBQ, entertain friends and enjoy the garden. Mature trees alongside fencing provides excellent screening and privacy.
