A 19th century five bedroom converted barn in 0.36 acres of gardens, with garaging and stables including paddocks of 3.31 acres in a gated development of ten barns in a rural position with countryside views.
The former farm buildings were originally converted in 1991 and have all been individually styled. The entrance hall in the property has Chinese slate flooring and an opening to the sitting room which has a feature fireplace housing a log burning stove, and patio doors to the rear terrace. There are two other reception rooms, and all three have Karndean flooring. There is also a kitchen/breakfast room, a separate utility room and a cloakroom on the ground floor. There are four bedrooms and a family bathroom on the first floor. The master bedroom has a dressing room and an en suite shower room. On the second floor there is a further bedroom with Velux skylights and loft access, and a mezzanine area which is currently used as a study. The property is entered via a shared private driveway that leads to a gravelled courtyard at the front which provides parking for one car. There is a charge of £65.00 per calender month which covers the maintenance and upkeep of communal areas.
The kitchen/breakfast room is fitted with a range of units with complementary oak work surfaces incorporating a sink unit and a breakfast bar. There is an oil fired Rayburn in a recess, and an integrated Bosch oven and induction hob. The separate utility room has a range of units, a butler sink, an integrated fridge/freezer, and space for other appliances.
The gardens are a particular feature and include a paved terrace and a decked area outside the sitting room, and a further decked area with power connected, a pizza oven and a gas barbeque. The remainder of the garden is mainly lawned with mature tree borders, a summerhouse and a timber shed. A five bar gate leads to the three stables, a tack room and garaging which has parking for a further five cars. The stables have water and electricity. There are paddocks of approximately 3.31 acres.
