About this property

  • Hegg Hill Barn is a fine Grade II Listed barn believed to date from the 18th century. Having been sympathetically converted in 2019, this beautifully presented property with detached ancillary accommodation, has been completed to a high specification, with the emphasis on attention to detail whilst preserving many of the characterful features, with the period and modern elements complementing each other. Points of note include:

    Bespoke oak joinery, engineered oak flooring, under floor heating with individual zoned thermostatic controls, Cat 6 wiring for TV and broadband.

    The impressive open plan ground floor space approaching 50 ft incorporates, to one end, a sitting room with wood burning stove, continuing to the vaulted central reception/dining area with floor to ceiling windows and doors bathing this wonderful entertaining area in natural light.

    To the southern section lies the contemporary kitchen equipped with extensive cupboards complemented by quartz work surfaces. Integral Siemens appliances including 2 wall mounted 8 function ovens, an induction hob with down draft extraction, a dishwasher and fridge/freezer. Adjoining the kitchen is a snug and utility room with further cupboards and space for freestanding appliances.

    Over the ground and first floors are four attractive bedrooms, served by four bath or shower rooms, three being en suite and fitted with stylish contemporary white sanitary ware. The two principal bedrooms are accessed via separate oak staircases with glass balusters.

    A shared driveway leads to the parking area and open bay garaging.

    To the south of the main barn lies the highly adaptable detached annexe which incorporates a sitting room, bedroom and shower room.

    The level lawned garden extends to the front and rear of the property and is enclosed by post and rail fencing with various shrub borders. The garden extends away from the garaging and there is a natural pond and mature trees.
