    I love the space, light and quality of this unique new home – tucked away yet in the heart of Barrington, I can imagine that the open plan kitchen/dining/living space would just be the hub of the house throughout the year. A wonderful space too for entertaining as it leads directly to the garden. I would highly recommend a viewing to fully appreciate the fabulous versatile accommodation.
