A delightful converted barn with outbuildings in a private rural position with far reaching views set in about 1.3 acres.
Marian Cocaldiad Barn was bought by the current owners in 2001. At the time it was a dilapidated agricultural building set on its own within a field and well back from the lane. They were captivated by the beautiful unspoilt position and views and undertook it's development into a house. The result is an impressive property in harmony with its surroundings and providing an excellent family home.
The entrance is approached from the lane via a gated private roadway leading to the gravelled drive to the house and a large parking and turning area beside the garage block.
The house is entered via an oak door leading into a wonderful open plan space comprising a hall, sitting room and music room. The kitchen is fitted with a good range of oak fronted storage units and opens to a dining room with French doors opening into the garden.
At the opposite end of the house a sitting room, utility room and bathroom, with access to outside which would appear to be ideally suited for the creation of a self-contained annexe should this be required.
The first floor is approached via an attractive turned staircase from the hall and serves the three first floor double bedrooms, with two bathrooms, one en suite.
Outside the gardens are a very appealing part of the property. They frame the house and comprise areas of lawn, well stocked beds and borders and mainly framed by mature hedging. At the far end of the garden is a shed and a conservation pond.
At the rear of the property are two small field enclosures, suitable for the grazing of ponies or other livestock and a small copse with a sunken seating area with a stone retaining wall.
The garage block (with automatic door) offers space for two cars plus a workshop area and there is a greenhouse leanto at the rear. On the first floor is an area currently used as a gym which has previously been used as a home office.
I love the light and versatile accommodation in Marian Cocaldiad Barn. The setting is wonderful and makes the most of the lovely views.Charlie Kannreuther
