An expansive, stone barn conversion with flexible accommodation and many character features, sitting in mature grounds providing stunning views over the open countryside.
Enter the property into a formal entrance hall with stairs rising to the first floor and doors to the ground floor accommodation.
The ground floor accommodation comprises a formal dining room with French doors out to the rear garden and windows looking out to the front.
A generous sized sitting room with a feature fireplace, windows out to the rear garden and floor to ceiling glazed double doors out to the front garden with views beyond.
The kitchen is one of the focal points of the house and has a stunning vaulted ceiling and a traditional, shaker style, farmhouse kitchen. There is granite and solid wood worktops, a gas fired AGA, integrated dishwasher, a fridge, a fridge freezer, a central island with granite and solid wood worktop, a double Belfast sink with mixer tap over, windows looking out over the front garden and a door into the conservatory.
The conservatory has large floor to ceiling double glazed doors out to the rear garden and patio looking onto the walled garden.
The accommodation continues with a rear hallway that provides access to the utility room where the floor standing, gas-fired central heating boiler is located. There is also additional storage and worktop space with space and plumbing for a washing machine and tumble dryer.
The rear hallway leads to a second sitting room with two sets of floor-to-ceiling glazed French doors out to the patio and garden. The room has a mezzanine level with a vaulted ceiling and exposed beams.
Beyond the second sitting room is a very versatile ground floor double bedroom with a vaulted ceiling, it has ample built in wardrobes, French doors out to the garden and an en-suite bathroom. The ground floor accommodation also has two downstairs WCs, one off the rear hallway and one off the main entrance hall.
The first-floor accommodation comprises a master bedroom suite with built in wardrobes, a high vaulted ceiling with exposed beams and an en-suite bathroom complete with low flush WC, bath and separate shower. This room sits to the front of the property, providing the most fantastic views out over the garden and open countryside.
The first-floor accommodation continues with a further two double bedrooms that are served by a separate shower room. In total the accommodation provides four bedrooms and three bathrooms.
To the outside, the property is accessed down a gravel driveway and through double timber gates. There is ample parking and the addition of a very large stone-built garage that can house up to four cars with a first floor and ground floor storage area within that subject to planning and building consent could be converted into further ancillary accommodation.
The outside space has expansive lawns looking out over the countryside, effectively split into two areas, a large lawn to the front overlooking the fields and then a more formal, walled garden that sits within the L-shape of the property with a patio space accessed off the living accommodation and a variety of mature shrubs and flowers providing year-round interest.
There is also an array of further outbuildings that were once stables that provide useful garden storage space but again could be further developed into a home office/gym/outdoor kitchen or various other uses to complement the main house.
This authentic barn conversion sits in a fantastic location and must be viewed to be appreciated.
