    About this property

    • Painsbridge Barn is an exquisite example of a sympathetic barn conversion situated in un spoilt down land countryside. The original barn is believed to date back to the 12th century and is invaluably un listed. The conversion was extensive however many of the original features remain including beautiful exposed Elm beams and attractive brickwork. Throughout the house the quality of workmanship is very apparent particularly in the spacious kitchen/breakfast room. The kitchen units are all bespoke and made of oak and topped with granite work surfaces. In the kitchen/breakfast room there is an underfloor access into a large purpose constructed air-conditioned wine cellar. At the centre of the house is a spectacular reception room with an impressive vaulted ceiling showcasing all of the exposed Elm beams. There is spectacular floor to ceiling chimney stack, which provides a great focal point to the room. The accommodation is very flexible with two en suite bedrooms on the ground floor and a further two en suite bedrooms on the first floor. The principal bedroom suite is very generous with a fitted dressing area and an en suite bathroom and shower room.

      The Gardens and Grounds at Painsbridge barn extend to 3.8 acres / 1.5 hectares (approx.)
      3.8 acres of grounds, split into 1.6 acres of lawned and landscaped gardens and 2.2 acres of ring-fenced pastureland.

      The barn is approached over a cobbled forecourt which provides a very attractive setting for the barn. Well-maintained lawns surround the property as well as an attractive terraced area providing great space for outside entertaining. On the northern side of the garden is a productive vegetable garden with a greenhouse and potting shed.

      There are a number of outbuildings which are used for storage and garaging some of which might become useful loose boxes. Adjacent to the barn is a double garage/workshop which also benefits from a 1st floor which is currently being used as an office.
      Adjacent health & fitness building:
      Situated just across from Painsbridge Barn, there is a modern building, fitted with state-of-the-art equipment to include a large well fitted gym (equipment available by separate negotiation). There is also an exercise pool with adjustable current, a steam room and a cloakroom with shower.
      The pool is enclosed by glass and is heated by its own unit and the gym is air conditioned.
