Set in a peaceful, semi-rural hamlet at the end of a country lane is this charming detached barn conversion perfectly combines modern style and convenience with country living.
This historic property was sympathetically converted in 2004/5 and has been finished to a very high standard whilst retaining many of the hallmarks of barn dwellings such as beamed ceilings, thick walls and exposed stone. Interiors have been beautifully modernised, marrying a wealth of natural materials such as stone floors and an abundance of bespoke joinery including window frames, doors and staircase with sought-after contemporary details such as underfloor heating throughout. There is fantastic potential for extension to the rear of the property should more space be required (subject to the necessary consents).
The accommodation is entered via an open oak framed open porch into a stunning open plan family/dining/kitchen. The Magnet kitchen is beautifully appointed with contemporary high gloss units affording plenty of storage and a comprehensive range of integrated appliances including a fridge/freezer, electric oven, induction hob and wine cooler. There is a well-proportioned dual-aspect living room which benefits from access onto the gardens to the rear and allows a delightful aspect over open countryside to be enjoyed to the side. Completing the ground floor accommodation is a utility cupboard and a cloakroom with WC.
A feature oak spindle staircase leads to the first floor galleried landing which enjoys excellent natural light due to large windows and skylights in the roof. The generous landing allows apace for an open plan study or readying area to one side. The master bedroom features a vaulted ceiling with two skylights and a side window offering countryside views. This bedroom is served by an en suite shower room.
There are two further bedrooms, with the second bedroom having a wall of built-in wardrobes. The non-structural stud partition wall could be removed between these rooms to create one larger bedroom if desired. A house bathroom with shower over bath completes the first floor accommodation.
Accessed via a quiet country lane, the property has off-street parking for several vehicles and a turning circle to the front. Worthy of particular note and the wonderfully mature and delightfully secluded rear gardens which are enclosed by high hedges, with a number of specimen trees including a majestic copper beech providing a high degree of privacy. There is a generous lawn offering excellent scope for further landscaping. With doors opening from the sitting room, there is a stone-paved patio area ideal for outdoor entertaining. There is a timber shed to the side of the property offering useful storage.
