The kitchen is fitted with a range of appliances including Rangemaster cooker and integrated fridge, freezer and dishwasher.

      serviced by efficient underfloor heating beneath travertine
      limestone tiles.

      Externally there is a landscaped garden which incorporates lawn areas separated by flower and shrub borders. A paved terrace extends across the front of the barn and connects to the gravel
      driveway. Tucked away in one corner is a valuable studio room
      which is designed for home working and outside relaxation.
