Modern versatile living in the country with outbuildings and paddock
The Old Cowshed is situated down a long drive away from the road, nestled at the bottom of a gentle hill in a lovely rural position surrounded by fields. The current owners converted The Old Cowshed in 2010 and have designed the house to take full advantage of the surrounding countryside and wonderful views.
Offering a great combination of modern living with the benefits of a more traditional barn feel with garden, outbuildings and paddock.
The property has a very modern European feel with the kitchen/living space on the ground floor and most of the bedrooms on the lower ground floor. However it has been designed in such a way that the bedrooms benefit from an abundance of natural light, either through light wells or direct sunlight.
The kitchen is open plan with the dining room, and is well equipped with an island unit which has the sink and drainer and space for the dishwasher. There are plenty of built in cupboards with soft close drawers, Bosch oven, steamer oven and microwave. Space for large fridge/freezer and dishwasher. Views from the kitchen are through the west facing bifold doors over open countryside. This leads through to the sitting room, whereby the oak trusses continue creating a high vaulted ceiling giving the feeling of space. South facing bifold doors continue the ease of access out onto the terrace with views across the paddock. There is a very spacious master bedroom with built in wardrobes, bifold doors and large en suite.
The whole house benefits from ground source heating with underfloor heating throughout, which is zoned in every room.
The second sitting room which has a small kitchen area, could be used as a family room, hobby room or tv room. This gives direct access to three double bedrooms all with en suite shower rooms. Two of which have direct access onto the lower courtyard. All the basement rooms have heat exchange mechanical ventilation.
The house has a 10 year Build Zone warranty (underwritten by Mitsui Sumitomo Insurance at Lloyds Ltd) from June 2018.
There is a barn with two internal stables with rubber matting and automatic drinkers, insulated tack room and hay/straw store. In all there is about two acres of grazing, fully fenced with water troughs, which would suit a couple of horses or a pony. There is also a ménage 18x25m with Pro Ride surface allowing riding and turn out in all weathers. The property has direct access onto the local bridleway up to Burton Dassett Park, and a footpath to Northend, making it ideal for dog walking .There is plenty of room to park larger vehicles and cars on the front drive. In all approx. 2.8 acres.
