A cleverly redesigned 18th century barn and stables forming a substantial family home of considerable character, set in generous grounds extending to about 5 acres.
Located in a peaceful corner of the village adjacent to All Saints church, Joby was created from the shell of a period barn and stables by the nationally renowned architect Francis Johnson. With origins dating back to 1755, on the former site of Low Hall, the property retains a number of attractive period features but has been given a significant facelift and internal reconfiguration forming the generous and well proportioned family home being offered for sale.
Considerable thought and expertise went into the creation of this handsome Georgian replica resulting in a sizeable house of considerable character, providing in excess of 5000 sqft of accommodation, including garaging for several cars plus additional outbuildings/stores. The property is arranged over two wings, one consisting of a series of more formal and classically proportioned reception rooms centering around a grand galleried entrance hall, with three bedrooms above, the other housing the kitchen, utility rooms and a mix of guest bedrooms and flexible games room, all perfectly suited to growing families.
Supporting the main house are a number of useful outbuildings, currently serving as stores and garaging, with an additional three bay garage block on the opposing wing. Opposite this across the large turning circle are steps leading to a wonderful glazed timber garden room providing access to the enchanting walled gardens, incorporating a heated swimming pool, an all weather tennis court and large wildlife pond set within an idyllic parkland setting.

A really happy family home, Joby is entirely practical and entirely charming at the same time. From family breakfasts in the pretty country kitchen, to formal Christmas parties, and garden gatherings in the pool and summer house, Joby is a house that the new owners- and their guests will easily fall for.Laura Laws
