Characterful barn conversion in beautiful rural location, with far reaching views to the Camel Estuary and beyond.
From the courtyard in front of the building, enter through the east facing door into a hall with cloakroom off and then into the large l-shaped kitchen, dining and sitting room. The kitchen is bright with natural light from windows facing east, south and west, as well as a tri-fold door leading from the dining area onto a terrace overlooking the gardens. The doors and windows are Swedish designed Rationel' and of high quality. The flooring throughout the downstairs is slate effect porcelain tiled, warmed by energy efficient, air sourced underfloor heating.
Kitchen fittings and appliances are also of excellent quality, including a 1100mm wide Rangemaster stove with induction hob and extractor over, Blomberg American style fridge/freezer plumbed in for chilled filtered water and ice making, and a Blomberg dishwasher. Other features include a Corian topped island, light oak worktops and atmospheric lighting. The dining area can accommodate a generous dining table and the sitting area allows for large sofas from which to enjoy the view and the wood burner.
A central hallway leads to the utility room and then to a lobby, useful also as a boot room, with a side door to the courtyard and parking. Also, off the hallway is a double bedroom with en suite shower. There is a further double bedroom with bathroom adjoining. Next is the large principal bedroom with en suite shower room. All these rooms are fitted with attractive plantation blinds and light oak doors, continuing the light, bright, contemporary theme throughout the house.
A turning staircase arrives at the landing and a fourth bedroom, the main feature of which is the view from its window to the west, as well as plenty of storage under the eaves. Adjoining this is a shower room of innovative, space saving design. Two further steps leads to the heating plant room and to an attic playroom or storage space, of limited height with exposed beams and large Velux window, again with wonderful views to the west. The landing area is also well lit by a Velux window and has a deep shelf with a modem point making it suitable for a work space or children's' play station area.
Gardens and grounds - The exterior of the barn is as thoughtfully designed and well laid-out as the interior, with locally - quarried stone walls dressed with granite quoins and window reveals under a Delabole rag slate roof. Timber cladding adds a stylish contrast.
The lawned gardens offer spectacular and far-reaching views from a sheltered terrace, providing a wonderful entertaining and alfresco dining space. There is an established herb garden, young ash and silver birch trees and climbing roses among many other flowering shrubs to complement the setting.
The courtyard setting of the double car port and garage has been landscaped partly with block paving, assorted planting, slate and granite features, which complement the mellow colours of the surrounding architecture. In the top corner of the garden, and adjacent to the garage window, is a sheltered hard standing area, which also enjoys the wonderful views, and might appeal to buyers to erect a summerhouse or home office thereon.
