    About this property

    • A rare combination of period character and contemporary styling. Forming part of a small development of period properties, at one time in the grounds of Sheepcote Manor and surrounded by glorious countryside, this wonderfully improved Grade II listed barn conversion, thought to be about 350 years old with later additions, offers superb spacious and versatile accommodation with a host of character features including an abundance of exposed timbers, brickwork and vaulted ceilings. The building has a fascinating history, having been owned by both The Crazy Gang in the 1930s and later by Denham Studios, during which time it was reputedly visited by Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II and Princess Margaret.

      Theatre Barn is a stunning and dramatic home, with the ancient timbers of the barn roof and structure showcased throughout. The ground floor open plan reception space is mostly vaulted and naturally divided by exposed beams comprising two seating areas, a dining room and an orangery overlooking the garden. A well-appointed kitchen is located to the front with an excellent range of units, integrated appliances and granite worktops. A central island gives further storage and breakfast bar seating alongside a useful workstation. Stone flooring and underfloor heating extends to most of the reception space. Just off the dining room is a characterful boot room with access to the garage.

      There are three double bedrooms, full of character and a beautifully appointed family shower room on the ground floor. The principal bedroom is a fine room with built-in bespoke wardrobes and a luxurious en suite bathroom. Double doors open on to the outside patio. Two further beautifully presented bedrooms both have fitted wardrobes.

      On the first floor, a stunning vaulted mezzanine is galleried to the rooms below, with glass balustrades and a spacious corner area providing a perfect spot for a cinema/TV room. The mezzanine leads to a family shower room and an additional bedroom with built in wardrobes, while a further set of stairs opens to another charming space, ideal as a study and giving superb elevated views.

      The property benefits from Control 4, a smart home operating system; CCTC and built-in speakers in the kitchen, orangery, cinema room, garden & outside kitchen/bar.

      The Theatre Barn enjoys a quiet and picturesque setting with fields and countryside beyond, yet with the security of neighbours nearby. A long gravel drive leads to a parking area with space for three cars and the large double garage, which benefits from a kitchen area with fitted storage units, appliances and worktops. A garden gate leads to the landscaped courtyard to the front of the house, well screened with mature shrubs and hedging. The rear garden is a delight, designed in a beautiful Italianate style with well stocked beds and borders, a lawn area and a central water feature. A gravelled path to the side lined with olive trees leads to the gym (with air conditioning) which could equally be used as a home/office. Adjacent is a decked area, incorporating a day bed, gas firepit and hot tub, overlooking the open fields to the rear. Adjoining the house is a charming patio with a deck and firepit area. A particular highlight of the garden is the superb outside kitchen and bar, fully fitted, complete with heaters, appliances and pizza oven, perfect for entertaining family and friends. In addition there is an integrated water irrigation system.
