About this property

  • Converted just after the millennium, Ferry Lane Barn is a stylish and superbly presented lifestyle home with over 3,500 sq ft of high quality accommodation. Cleverly and intelligently arranged and set out, it provides 3 principal reception rooms. The drawing room and vaulted sitting room have both had a brand new high quality hardwood oak floor and the accommodation provides a superb entertaining space. The outlook from all the principal ground floor rooms including the dining room with feature glazed window and the kitchen/breakfast room with bifold doors is out across the stone terrace over the easily managed lawned garden.

    The ‘Shaker' style kitchen/breakfast room is well fitted with a range of wall and floor units with 5-ring hob/oven and extractor above. The adjoining utility room has a Vaillant gas fired boiler (mains gas) together with stainless steel sink unit, worktops and space and plumbing for washing machine and tumble dryer.

    There is an integral 3-car garage which, subject to planning permission, could provide further internal accommodation if required.

    The bedroom arrangements at Ferry Lane Barn are well thought out and, depending on the buyer, one wing could be used as an entire master bedroom suite comprising 2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms, 1 of which is en suite to the master bedroom. Alternatively the 2nd bedroom could be used as a dressing room or nursery for a smaller child. There is planning permission to put a large dormer window in this part of the house if required. The 3 remaining bedrooms, 1 of which has an en suite shower room, and the additional family bathroom are separate from the master bedroom suite, providing great privacy for teenage children and parents alike.

    Ferry Lane Barn is approached from Ferry Road (no through road) through handsome wooden gates to a wide gravelled parking and turning area with a grass verge around it and herbs/lavender beds in front of the house. A side gate access leads round to the side of the house where there is extensive handsome stone terracing with a barbecue area, and the outhouses with gym and store to the side of the house. Steps then lead down to a wide al fresco dining terrace linking to the main reception rooms. There is an authentic Italian log burning pizza oven on the terrace. Beyond is the well kept lawn, all enclosed within a part red brick walled garden, at the end of which a line of silver birch trees leads to a “secret” seating area surrounded by bamboo.
