About this property

  • Barn 2, Belvedere Barn is a charming and stylishly presented semi-detached barn, converted in 2004. The house is situated on the north western outskirts of the popular village of Horsted Keynes, in a rural location surrounded by farmland, benefitting from a sunny south-east facing paved terrace, an expanse of lawned garden and ample parking in the form of two driveways.

    The full extent and layout of the accommodation in the house can be seen on the floor plan; the property benefits from planning permission to extend the ground floor offering the potential to create additional reception space.

    Barn 2 is accessed via a wide glazed door set into a double height window formed of the original cart doors, which opens directly to the part-vaulted, open plan sitting room and kitchen. The sitting room has a wooden floor and an open fireplace as its centrepiece; the kitchen is fitted with a range of modern, gloss cream units with wood effect worktops, a Bosch electric oven, five-ring gas hob and space for further appliances.

    Lying off the sitting room is a ground floor bedroom (currently used as a formal dining space) with fitted wardrobes and a good-sized en suite wet room.

    A wooden spiral staircase rises from the sitting room to the galleried first floor landing, where there is space for a desk. There are two bedrooms: bedroom one has a walk-in wardrobe and en suite bathroom; bedroom two has a small en suite shower room.

    Planning permission has been granted for a single storey ground floor extension. Mid Sussex District Council, ref: DM/21/4319.

The open fire really makes the reception space special and the generous garden is ideal for entertaining.
