About this property

  • A traditional stone built family house with origins dating back to the 1700's. Extensively refurbished within the last 30 years, the property is constructed from traditional stone elevations under a pan tiled roof with double glazed windows throughout. The home enjoys excellent flexibility with multi-generational living prospects.

    Standing within established and beautifully mature gardens and there is the benefit of an additional agricultural field. Originally two houses and belonging to the nearby Chestermaster estate, Barton Kirby provides a comfortable family environment with three storey living and five bedrooms.

    There are traditional principal rooms a number of which interconnect. The drawing room has a stone fireplace with open flue and this opens through to the much used conservatory, adjacent is the formal dining room, whilst the more relaxed sitting room has a picture window overlooking the ornate front courtyard garden. There is a formal reception hall to the front used infrequently and with a rising staircase to the upper floors. On a day to day basis the rear lobby with cloakroom is the general point of access. The upper floors include five bedrooms andare well appointed; the principal bedroom includes built in wardrobes and a dressing table and located on a mezzanine, is the comprehensive en suite bathroom with a further array of built in wardrobes. The remaining two bedrooms on the first floor are well served by the family bathroom. There are two top floor bedrooms located off the galleried landing and these feature en suite facilities in addition to deep storage cupboards for one and a useful study area for the other.

    There are a range of useful outbuildings that are all attached to the property, these include a double and single garage with up and over doors as well as an adjacent store. There is a snooker room with a double glazed bay and doors opening on to the front drive and on a mezzanine below a leisure room featuring a hot tub and sauna. Kirby's Barton is approached via a tarmacadam drive with plenty of parking and turning and electrically operated wrought iron gates. This culminates in a triple car port with useful storage for implements and solar panels which provide a healthy return. The principal garden is beautifully laid out and with deep stocked flower borders displaying a wide variety of year round colour. The focal point is the large ornamental pond and with a depth of approximately three feet, this is well stocked with Koi Carp. Beyond is an area of pasture which has an agricultural title and there is also a greenhouse, compost and vegetable patch. The front courtyard garden is more ornamental, hard landscaped and with slate chippings and well stocked raised flower beds with clipped hedges, a Bay, Magnolia and Camellias. There is also alpine plants, a water feature and a discreet seating area for morning coffee.
