St Marys Barn, was once part of the Hawridge Court estate which together with Church Barn, the original Hawridge Court Manor and St Marys Church, dated 1856 forms an attractive cluster of dwellings at the top of Church Lane. Designated an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, the 40 hectares of common land is enjoyed by walkers and horse riders alike. Nearby The Full Moon public house and cricket club create a picturesque rural setting yet still within driving distance of a number of towns providing multiple shopping facilities, amenities and stations for the London commuter.
St Marys Barn is a delightful 300 year detached Grade II listed barn that was converted in 1988 to create a spacious family home, combining character features with modern comforts. The layout, particularly to the ground floor is adaptable with three reception rooms including a large sitting room with feature inglenook style fireplace, a great space for family living and entertaining. The long double-aspect kitchen with feature ceiling beams is fitted with a stylish range of units with granite worktops and island. Built-in Bosch appliances include an induction hob, double oven, microwave, dishwasher and fridge/freezer. There is plenty of space for both informal family dining and relaxing with a wood burner at the far end. Leading off the kitchen is a spacious cloakroom, boot room and utility room.
Upstairs there are a total of four double bedrooms including the large master with lovely far reaching views to wake up to. There are three well appointed contemporary bath/shower rooms, two of which provide en suite facilities. On the landing there is a hatch with a retractable ladder giving access to the boarded loft space providing fantastic storage space or scope for further conversion.
Approached via an electrically operated five bar gate, a long private driveway leads between the barn and its neighbour to a parking and turning space in front of the significant row of outbuildings. These offer a multitude of potential uses currently a double garage, tractor store, workshop and stables. There is an idyllic courtyard area, a lovely setting for alfresco eating and entertaining. On the other side of the kitchen wing' is an area of enclosed formal garden which is mainly lawn with well established shrub borders. A five bar gate where a public footpath crosses separates the formal gardens and the paddocks with views over the rolling Chiltern countryside beyond. The stables and paddocks will naturally appeal to the equestrian enthusiast. There is also an area of woods with a quad bike track, a polytunnel hangar and a micro light runway.
