Converted by the current owners during the 1990's this spacious detached barn conversion is a wonderful family home. Sympathetically constructed incorporating a range of reclaimed materials the property and the grounds have an individual charm and character.


The ground floor is predominantly open plan with rustic character features including timber beams, and exposed stone and brick work creating a seamless comfortable living space which links the property to its countryside surroundings. In the kitchen area is a polished granite work top surrounding an aga with walk in larder, the French Oak floor flows through into the cosy living/ dining area, with wood burning stove upon a granite hearth under an impressive Chestnut mantle. There are French doors out into the garden. Also on the ground floor is a boot room/ utility and a WC.


On the first floor are four bedrooms each with vaulted ceilings, the master with walk-in wardrobe. There is a shower room, separate bathroom, landing cupboard and minstrel style gallery landing.


Approached through a five bar gate, up a private drive, with plenty of parking. The raised gardens have been carefully landscaped with low stone walls and well stocked borders surrounding an elevated partly covered alfresco dining area and patio.


Steps lead to a fenced raised kitchen garden with established poly tunnel, garden shed and a large ship' play area. There are a range of established fruit trees in the orchard including apple, pear, cherry and hazel nuts.


There is a former stone piggery and a stone and block barn. Both have potential for further uses, subject to consents. At the moment the barns are used for storage, workshop and 4 bay car port.
