Substantial farmhouse with superb views, photography studio and paddocks
With an elevated south facing position, Kirkton Barns Farmhouse has wonderful natural light. There is a lovely outlook over the garden, with views over the fields and surrounding countryside. The farm buildings are mostly screened from the house by mature trees and provide good shelter from northern extremes.
The principal entrance, also located to the south of the property, leads into a vestibule and then to a welcoming entrance hall, with a staircase to the first floor. The spacious drawing room makes the most of the lovely views and the well-proportioned dining room is ideal for entertaining. Beyond the hall there is a study, two store rooms, the kitchen, utility room and an internal access to the self contained apartment. The kitchen features base and wall units, space for a breakfast table, and integrated appliances including a hob, two ovens, fridge/freezer and microwave.
The apartment can be self contained by use of the courtyard entrance. The main reception area of the apartment is spacious and well-lit from a double height window. A kitchenette provides all the basic necessities for a kitchen including sink, hob, fridge and microwave oven. Stairs lead up to the bedroom and shower room.
The principal staircase sweeps up to a large landing naturally lit from a large double height window set above the main entrance and which provides spectacular views over the front garden and fields below. The landing provides access to five spacious bedrooms, two of which have shower rooms en suite. There are also two bathrooms.
A driveway leads off the access road to a gravel parking area. There is also plenty of parking space to the rear of the house where steps descend into an enclosed courtyard where there are some good outbuildings including an artist's studio and stores.
A walled garden lies below the front of the house with terraced beds situated to either side of the steps leading down to the front lawn. A paved area next to a pond provides a tranquil area for seating. To the side of the house is a second patio with pergola, which lies adjacent to the rear courtyard.
There are two fields by the house. The larger paddock to the front of the house is permanent pasture and extends to about 7.5 acres.
Artist's studio and photography studio:
Set within the courtyard to the rear of the house is an outhouse which has been converted to create a superb artist's studio with plenty of natural light and exhibition wall space. To the east of the house there is a purpose built Scandinavian style cabin which has been specially designed as a photography space with kitchen, changing facilities and studio.
