About this property

  • The Old Threshing Barn, a detached stone barn with slate roof, was beautifully and sympathetically converted in the late 1990s. The barn now offers bright and spacious accommodation arranged over two floors with a generous collection of outbuildings within the grounds. The ground floor comprises a Ashgrove kitchen with Tuscan Granite worktops and an electric Aga; a gorgeous open plan living / dining room benefits from a wood burning stove and three pairs of south-facing French windows opening onto the private walled courtyard and a large garden room. In addition to the reception rooms is a double en suite bedroom, again with 2 pairs of French windows leading to the courtyard. The first floor is currently configured to provide a further two bedrooms, study and a bathroom.

    Gardens
    A magical feature of the barn is undoubtedly the south facing gardens, which are quite stunning. Adjoining the barn, is a full width flagstone courtyard, which is walled and private. Along the eastern boundary, a short woodland walk opens up on a sweeping lawn with a spring fed pond with trees, including a Pterocarya Stenoptera (Chinese wingnut tree) and a magnolia, and a colourful array of camellias and hydrangeas. There are two orchards, one ancient and the other newly planted in 2011 amongst a wild flower meadow. There is also a small kitchen garden and fruit cage. The driveway is gated and provides ample parking. Outbuildings include a greenhouse, large workshop, two open-bay car ports, garage and two storage rooms.
