About this property

  • The Barn is a superbly presented family property together with beautiful landscaped gardens which have been cleverly designed to maximise the southerly views towards the coast whilst providing privacy and seclusion for the house itself.

    Understood to date from the early 20th century the wonderful house has been extended, reconfigured and comprehensively refurbished by the present owners with under floor heating and individual thermostat controls to several rooms, a stylish bespoke fitted kitchen, contemporary bath and shower rooms, open fire in the drawing room and woodburning stove in the family/ breakfast room.

    The internal accommodation flows effortlessly, with four principal reception rooms, three with French doors and a study with fitted bookshelves, all enjoying superb vistas over one of the two formally landscaped terraces or the manicured south facing lawns and beyond.

    The beautiful bespoke fitted kitchen has a mix of oak and hand painted cupboards and central island. Appliances include a Franke tap with filtered hot and cold water, Gaggenau fridge and freezer drawers, a five oven electric Aga and integral dishwasher. Bifold doors open to the terrace. An adjacent utility room fitted to match the kitchen, has space for white goods and steps down to the cellar/store.

    From the substantial landing there are currently five bedrooms, served by three modern, well appointed bath/shower rooms, two en suite. The main bedroom has superb views, a bank of fitted cupboards and a lovely bathroom with separate shower. Bedroom five has a connecting sitting room, making the perfect teenage suite, however this room could be used as a further bedroom.

    The Barn has a right of access over a private shared lane. A gravel sweep provides parking and turning and access to the Heritage-style open bay garaging with Telsa car charger, store and first floor office.

    Designed by the owners, the gardens are spectacular with formal courtyard terraces to the east and west incorporating pleached hornbeam, espalier fruit trees, seasonal bulbs and shrubs creating continuing colour and interest throughout the year.

    The lawns stretch away to the south and west, planted with Scots pines, rosebeds and evergreen hedging. There is a tennis court and a large enclosed kitchen garden with raised beds.
