There is not the normal main entrance at this quirky and extremely interesting barn conversion. With three different entrances the possibilities are variable for any incoming purchaser. If we enter via the right hand corner entrance then we enter a hallway area with a bathroom directly in front containing bath, WC and a hand wash basin with cupboard for storage. If we lead off to the left initially then we enter an inner hall through room which could easily be used as a study/library area. This is a point whereby if you wished to separate the property into two separate dwellings would be an ideal position. However this currently leads to the dining/games room; which also has a bathroom leading off from it with bath, WC and a hand wash basin with cupboard for storage. This dining/games room is a very spacious and sociable room with so much character and beams on display and a solid wood floor. This room leads to two bedrooms with windows out to the courtyard area. The kitchen/breakfast room has a few stairs leading up to it and is country in style with mainly base units for storage with some wall units, integrated fridge and dishwasher, and space for a 'Rangemaster' cooker if desired. The features are fantastic with original bare brickwork and wooden beams giving a definitive 'barn' conversion feel. The kitchen also has space for table and chairs to enjoy breakfast and any meals whilst being a sociable area too. Another inner hallway leads to a further bathroom with separate shower cubicle, bath, WC and a hand wash basin. Outside of the bathroom is an airing cupboard housing the hot water tank. The garden room is a great social space, extremely light and airy with a full height ceiling and exposed beams which is a theme throughout this barn conversion and this room has its own entrance and stairs leading down to the courtyard. A few stairs lead to the bedroom currently used as the master, and then a set of stairs lead to a spare bedroom on a first floor area which concludes this side of the barn.
Leading back from the inner hallway where we first entered to the right is the utility room with units for storage and space for further appliances which may include washing machine, tumble dryer, fridge freezer, cooker; and has a stainless steel sink with drainer. A door leads out to the rear of the property. Next is another double bedroom with skylight and ample space for bedroom furniture. Again a slight change in level leads us to the sitting room with a superb feel of space and the main focal point being the wood burner and windows overlooking the courtyard area. Next door to this is a separate outside entrance to the pool which is also an endless/Jacuzzi pool ideal to relax or exercise whichever takes preference. This property is full of character and many original features; much improved by the current owners and has so many possibilities/variables for the incoming purchaser.
Approaching the property one enters the hard standing parking area with room for several vehicles to park. The courtyard is neatly fenced in with two separate gated entrances, one leading to the stairs of the garden room entrance and the other to the main courtyard area. There are various potted plants and shrubs and ample room for garden table and chairs an ideal area for entertaining friends and family alfresco style. Additionally; to the rear of the barn is another area ideal for entertaining outside the kitchen plus a raised garden area mainly laid to lawn with steps and handrail leading to the top of the lawn with a variety of planted mature trees, shrubs and hedgerow. The total plot size is approximately 0.25 acres (STS).
