About this property

  • Originally part of the Holford Estate, Barley House is now a very comfortable family home (attached) having been created from two individual cottages. Great flair and imagination has been used to create a home providing generous living space in a completely refurbished, newly built interior, including wall and roof insulation and new double glazed windows throughout. The house also benefits from solar panels which feed into the grid and receive regular feed-in payments (15 years remaining)
    There is a high standard of appointment throughout, particularly in the kitchen and bathrooms. There are also oak and limestone floors as well as solid oak thumb catches on the ledged and braced doors upstairs, some of which have been retained from the original cottages. Situated partway down a private lane, the property is approached through double doors into a paved courtyard leading to a stone entrance porch. The entrance hall has a limestone floor, and a window which overlooks the garden and a spacious cloakroom to one side.. Adjacent is the double reception room, a superb entertaining room capable of being used in a number of different ways. There are two fireplaces, one with a wood burning stove, and a part glazed door leading to the rear garden. The main staircase leads up to the first floor. To the front of the house, in what was originally a double garage for steam tractors, is the superb kitchen/breakfast room, off which is the utility/boot room. The kitchen, handmade by a local craftsman, is extensively fitted and includes a walk-in larder cupboard, Everhot range, two ring gas hob, granite worktops and plenty of storage cupboards. There is a slate floor, glazed double doors to the courtyard and a bespoke secondary staircase. On the opposite side of the entrance hall is a cosy sitting room with a woodburner and a door that leads out to the garden. This room could also be used as an occasional bedroom as there is an adjoining bathroom. All of the four principal bedrooms have en suite bathrooms or shower rooms and the main bedroom has a walk-in closet. There is also a study area on the landing, built-in cupboards and exposed ceiling timbers in all bedrooms. Externally there is an attractive and mature garden to the rear which is partly enclosed by stone walling. As well as the lawned area, there are flower and rose borders as well as lavender beds. To the front of the house is a gravelled parking area from which a door opens into the lovely courtyard. Totally enclosed, the courtyard is a real sun trap and a perfect place for al fresco dining as the kitchen opens directly onto it. All rooms are well supplied with ample double sockets (separate 5 am circuits in the drawing room), TV points, telephone and CAT5 sockets.
