A 19th century three bedroom detached barn conversion with countryside views, a detached double garage and landscaped gardens, situated in a small development.
The Old Stables was originally the cattle and tractor sheds belonging to the former Roberts Farm. The property underwent a complete renovation programme between 2009 and 2010. The barn now has a blend of character features and modern living space including a family room with double doors to the garden; a solid oak fitted kitchen with a walk-in pantry; and vaulted ceilings with exposed beams. There is also a sitting/dining room with exposed timbers. Also on the ground floor is a master bedroom with a range of oak fronted fitted wardrobes, doors onto the garden and a three piece en suite bathroom. There is a further double bedroom and a three piece wet room with underfloor heating. On the first floor there is a galleried landing in use as a study, and a bedroom with a vaulted ceiling and countryside views.
Sitting/Dining Room and Family Room
Glazed double doors open to the sitting/dining room which is dual aspect and has a vaulted ceiling with exposed beams and a skylight allowing further natural light. An archway created by beams leads through to the family room which also has a vaulted ceiling and exposed beams. Glazed double doors open to the garden and there are views towards Coombe Hill. A feature of this room is the contemporary wood burning stove which has an exposed flue.
A gravelled driveway with parking for up to four cars leads to a detached double garage with power connected and a loft void. There are lawned gardens to the front. Gated side access leads to the rear garden which is laid mainly to lawn with a paved patio, flower and shrub beds, and a vegetable plot. Double gates provide additional secure parking. The garden is surrounded by fencing and hedging and has views towards Coombe Hill and Beacon Hill.
