Unique stone detached barn in desirable village location.
Green Barns is situated just off the village green in an area of outstanding natural beauty. The property consists of three barns in the formation of a horse shoe which has been re built, renovated and modernised to create wonderful open plan living with high ceilings and generous room proportions. There is a real ambiance between the old and new features in the property enabling one to benefit from the best of both worlds. The house is not listed and has double glazing throughout and retains many of the original features, oak trusses, exposed brickwork and inglenook fireplace.
The house is designed in such a way that parts of it could be closed off and has zoned heating, which means it could be used as alternative accommodation for dependant family members, offering huge flexibility on how the barn is utilised.
The front door to the property is on the courtyard side of the barn. An oak door flanked by floor to ceiling windows either side opens out into a large reception hall. This gives access to the kitchen/dining room and drawing room. A split staircase leads up to the first floor master bedroom and guest bedroom suites.
The drawing room has a brick surround inglenook fireplace with wood burning stove and log storage to either side. A spacious room with large proportions ideal for family entertaining. The kitchen has a number of built in wall and base cupboards, integrated dishwasher, wine cooler, space for fridge freezer and Britannia electric oven with (bottled gas) hob. A breakfast bar island unit facilitates a sociable seating area which can also be appreciated from the dining room. This leads through into the south facing sitting room, which has dual aspect windows, vaulted ceiling with the original oak trusses.
There is a good sized utility space and cloakroom with direct access onto the courtyard.
The family room which offers a lovely entertaining space with bifold doors opening out onto the courtyard and terrace area is a fantastic party room which could be used as an art studio or gymnasium. This leads through to the west wing of the house which has two large double bedrooms and en suite shower rooms. The fifth bedroom could be used as a study. This wing could be separated from the main house if you needed to create independent accommodation for a family member.
The Master bedroom and guest bedroom suite in the east wing, both have dressing areas with built in wardrobes and en suite bathrooms. These rooms have vaulted ceilings with velux windows, allowing plenty of natural light into the property.
This property has scope to be enlarged further, subject to planning, as there is a very large floored roof space above the bedrooms in the west wing.
The property is accessed over a gravel drive which sweeps through into the main courtyard offering ample parking for several cars and larger vehicles.
There is a brick built, detached double fronted open bay garage with electricity and light with an adjoining garden store. Above this is a self-contained annex, accessed via an external staircase with shower room and kitchen area. Beautiful views through the Velux windows over the gardens. There is also a separate garden store.
The garden is mainly laid to lawn, which is large enough for grazing a pony and has a fenced vegetable garden, greenhouse and chicken run. Pretty views of the church can be admired from here. A great space providing ample room for children to play outdoor games.
