    About this property

    • This stunning barn conversion is set behind electric gates and features a detached self contained annexe within the grounds. Originally dating back to the 17th century, the property has been extensively refurbished and offers stylish accommodation in excellent decorative order.

      The main barn offers under floor heating and air conditioning as well as three bedrooms and two bathrooms and a guest cloakroom. The principal living area is an impressive double height with vaulted ceiling and full length windows affording lovely garden and pool aspects, as well as allowing light to flood in. A double-sided open log burning fireplace which can be seen from the snug, creative mood lighting and cabling for surround sound makes this a fabulous entertaining space. A spiral staircase gives access to a galleried area currently being used as the gym. The kitchen, which was recently fitted in a contemporary design by 1909 has waterfall granite worktops, two dishwashers, chef's pantry and washing machine. There is a Quooker boiling/ cold filtered water tap and American fridge freezer.

      There is a ground floor bedroom with en suite bathroom which would work well for guests or as the main bedroom.
      On the first floor you have the principal bedroom suite with underfloor heating, a freestanding bath, en suite shower room, walk in wardrobe and dressing room. There is a further bedroom which is ideal for a young child just next door, both bedrooms have air conditioning.

      The barn is entered through electric gates leading onto the recently laid resin bound driveway where there is parking and entrance to the garage with electric door. The garage offers universal 22KW electric car charging point.

      The garden is surrounded by a walled garden offering privacy and security and the main barn and annexe are separated by a heated swimming pool and landscaped gardens. The property is well set up for both entertaining and normal family life with a newly patio to the rear of the barn allowing for social interaction between house and gardens. There is a 4m x 3m UV water and hurricane proof sail. There is a children's play area with astroturf, and sunken trampoline nicely secluded to the rear of the garden.
