    About this property

    • The standout conversion of a traditional stone barn, dated 1862, presented to a fabulous standard and positioned within imaginatively landscaped gardens designed for entertaining at home.

      The property was converted in 2017 and combines contemporary design details with the old stone and exposed timbers of the original building to great effect.

      The gardens extend to 2.8 acres, or thereabouts, offering ample space for outdoor entertaining. The property has a great sense of privacy whilst combining open views over fields towards the village of Teigh. An extensive landscaping project has created beautifully manicured grounds, a programme of shrub and tree planting, and a number of spaces for gathering with family and friends.

      In addition, there is ample off-road parking and covered garaging for many vehicles within a spacious detached garage barn.

      Perfectly marrying the original character of the building with its contemporary design, the interiors at Teigh View Barn feature all the modern conveniences desired for a home of this specification. Developed by Kaybee Developments and purchased by the vendor shortly before completion, this allowed a chance to stamp their personality on the home. Over the years, further improvements have been made to enhance this magnificent property, while not detracting from the charm of the building.

      The room with the most character is the principal bedroom, which features exposed timber beams perfectly juxtaposed against the modern windows and high-end fittings. Large gatherings of family and friends are a breeze, with all of the bedrooms benefiting from dressing rooms and en suite facilities featuring Porcelanosa sanitary ware throughout.

      A long, glazed corridor to one side of the property provides not only a striking focal point but an easy route between the living accommodation, bedrooms and work and leisure spaces.

      The rest of the house is equally well set up for entertaining, the triple aspect kitchen/dining/family room serves as the heart of the home and providing a space where all can gather together to enjoy family meals and celebrations, with two sets of bi-folding doors to the gardens. The family room is a quiet retreat at the end of the day to appreciate quality time as a family, while the useful study provides an area for homeworking. There is also a gym, which like the rest of the house, enjoys magnificent views across the grounds and the farmland beyond.

      • Dressing rooms for every bedroom with oak fittings
      • Underfloor heating throughout
      • Porcelain tiles in the living areas
      • Oak flooring in the bedrooms
      • Bespoke cabinetry in the Family Room
      • Two lofts with drop-down ladders and lighting
      • Porcelanosa bathrooms
      • Oak internal doors
      • Double glazed windows and bifold doors

      The grounds were a blank canvas, formerly agricultural land transformed into beautifully landscaped gardens with areas for relaxation and practical daily life. A great deal of attention has been lavished on the area surrounding the house, installing a decking terrace, dog-proof fencing around the perimeter and a number of areas of planting. Of particular note, over 100 trees have been planted within the grounds, in addition to several thousand wildflowers and ornamental flowerbeds within the courtyard, all of which are maturing beautifully and will provide seasonal interest for many years to come.

      When the weather is fine, entertaining can be taken outdoors to the terrace, where there is a sunken fire pit with lighting from which to enjoy the sunsets, in addition to a hot tub, which is available by separate negotiation.

      For practical matters, there is a fenced washing area for outdoor drying. The vendors have indicated potential for the installation of a swimming pool and tennis court.

      To the front of the house there is ample parking on a private driveway in addition to a detached triple garage and storage area of over 1600 sq ft, clad in Siberian larch.

      The house is served by three air source heat pumps which provide the warmth and electricity needed to sustain the entire property, serving both the underfloor heating and the hot water system. A private drainage system is discreetly hidden within the garden and requires minimal annual maintenance.
      Security is also of importance, including spotlights, CCTV (12 cameras), and an alarm system. Both the CCTV and alarm system can be controlled and viewed by phone application.

    I love this house and few houses have made more of an impact at my first visit - it is such an uplifting viewing experience and home. With a beautiful feel and flow, the finishes are first class and the layout offers fabulous connectivity with the gardens, with standout views for almost all rooms. Across fields from Teigh, one of the nation's 32 'Thankful Villages' that were spared casualties in WWI, it is also well placed for the area's market towns, fabulous choice of schooling and commuter rail connections.
