Striking contemporary barn conversion.
Upper Circourt Barn is a striking and creative conversion of a Dutch Barn, completed in 2018. The sleek lines of larch cladding and a minimal metal framework exhibit a simplicity of design, belying state of the art technology within, seamlessly meeting 21st century requirements.
All ground floor rooms overlook the terrace, garden and paddock beyond. The stunning and spacious kitchen, breakfast and family room is of particular note. The Nobilia contemporary cupboards and generously sized island sit beneath a grey Silestone worktop with a large Blanco Steelart sink. The two double ovens, microwave/ combination oven, dishwasher, six zone induction hob, pop up extractor and two fridges. Bifold doors open from both the working and the living ends of this welcoming room which also boasts a double-sided fireplace. A well fitted out utility room leads off with built-in Bosch washing and drying machines, a second dishwasher and bespoke larder.
A delightful sitting room next door shares the fireplace and also has bi-folds opening to the garden. At the far end of the corridor is a good sized room, presently used as a study, but could alternatively be a snug or playroom. A smaller room presently used as a library is an ideal size for a home study.
Upstairs, the curved dome of the roof is replicated throughout the landing and bedrooms, making for interesting shapes that have been highlighted via discreet uplighting. The three glazed panels on the galleried landing allow natural light to flood through the centre of the barn.
The principal bedroom also overlooks the garden and paddock with bifold doors opening to a delightful balcony. There is a generous dressing area with bespoke wardrobes and bathroom with its double ended bath, large shower and double vanity unit. Two further bedrooms also have dressing areas and en suite bath/shower rooms and bedroom 4 and 5 share a Jack and Jill shower room. There is also a walk-in heated linen cupboard on the landing and two large, easily accessible storage rooms off the hall.
A ground source heat pump supplies all heating and hot water requirements to the property with underfloor heating throughout the ground floor. A satellite superfast broadband system is connected with Cat 7 ethernet cabling system wired throughout all rooms.
A door from the hallway opens to the generously sized double garage with roller shutters. There are two large, boarded storage areas, a work bench, sink and plumbing for a washing machine.
A further barn, provides approximately 4000 sq ft of storage space. The floor is concreted with power supplied and two giant roller shutters provide access.
The house is approached via an electric wooden 5-bar gate with lawns either side. The remainder of the garden is mostly lawned with a large slabbed terrace with raised beds leading on to a paddock and small woodland area. Beech hedging has been planted to much of the boundary.
In all approximately 5 acres.

A home that has it all, space, style, land and views. You almost get two for one here as the fantastic storage barn is nearly as big as the house!Charles Elsmore-Wickens
