Superb detached barn conversion with pool and land.
Old Barn is a barn conversion of great character. The property is black weather boarded under a pan tiled roof with exposed brick and flint plinth and was converted about 30 years ago to a very high standard throughout. The property benefits from a wealth of original features including inglenooks, vaulted rooms, exposed beams, Suffolk latch doors and brick floors. The accommodation comprises an entrance hall with slate flooring which leads through to the charming farmhouse Orwells kitchen/breakfast room with, dual aspect, electric Aga set in an inglenook fireplace and French pamment floor. The utility room is off the kitchen beyond which lies the cloakroom and cosy sitting room. The dining room is a delightful room with French doors out on to the rear wooden deck, exposed timbers and brick & flint plinth. The drawing room has an impressive vaulted ceiling with a feature brick fireplace with wooden bressumer over with wood burning stove, exposed timbers, oak floor and French doors to the terrace and pool area. The first floor is reached via an oak staircase on to a galleried landing. The principal bedroom affords a triple aspect and has an en suite bathroom with a roll top bath. There are a further three bedrooms and a family bathroom with contemporary fittings.
The outside space has multiple entertaining areas, including a low maintenance and generously sized courtyard with potting shed and pond. There is a laid to lawn area, which lies adjacent to a tiled area housing a large outdoor heated swimming pool. Next to the swimming pool is a pool house and tool shed. The laid to lawn area leads to additional land located at the back of the property, providing an overall size of approximately 2.8 acres. The driveway has space for several vehicles, with a cart lodge at the end creating sheltered space for another two vehicles and a wood store.

I was amazed by Old Barn tucked away in such a hidden position yet incredibly conveniently located. The barn is surrounded by beautiful countryside and delightful walks through the Gipping Valley.Peter Ogilvie
