Modernised period house at the centre of the village.
Dating from the 18th or early 19th century, this attractive red-brick house is listed Grade II of Architectural or Historical Interest and is also located within the village's conservation area. The house has been the subject of a comprehensive programme of restoration, exemplified by replacement Heritage double glazed windows, upgraded insulation, an open-plan kitchen/family room at the rear of the house complemented by a low-maintenance rear walled rear garden. The entrance hall has exposed studwork, which is open plan to a cosy sitting room/ground floor bedroom, which includes fitted shelving and a concealed pull-down bed ideal for guests. On the opposite side of the house is the principal living room, the focal point being a red-brick fireplace with living flame gas fire complemented by other period features such as exposed studwork and ceiling timbers. The room has a good deal of natural light with three sets of windows. At the rear of the house is a kitchen/garden room. The garden room has two automated skylights and sliding doors leading directly into the garden. The kitchen is finished with a range of Shaker-style units topped with granite and including an integrated dishwasher, waste disposal and fridge and behind the kitchen is a second kitchen/prep utility room, again with granite tops plenty of storage and two larder cupboards. Adjoining is a ground floor cloakroom and utility area with space for washing machine and dryer.
On the first floor there are three good sized bedrooms. The principal bedroom has exposed studwork, an en suite dressing room and shower room. The two other bedrooms include a cast iron fireplace, exposed timbers, one with fitted furniture which is ideal as a secondary area for home working. The property has been sympathetically decorated throughout with period colours which complement the property's features.
Adjacent to the house is a dual gravelled drive which in turn leads to a detached garage/workshop* with internal studwork partition and loft area. This is a sizeable building sitting close to the main house and offering the possibility of conversion to an annexe or work-from-home facility.
The rear gardens are walled and planted for all-year colour an interest and designed for low maintenance with astroturf, stone terrace and patio with a storage area housing the property's boiler.

Stock is one of my favourite villages. I have spent many a day wandering the surrounding countryside either by foot or bike, finishing off the day in one of the four cosy pubs or their gardens. For me Barn Hall Cottage offers the convenience of a central village location with access to miles of rural stretches of countryside.Stephen White
