As you step from the front entrance porch into the main part of the barn, the grandeur and charm becomes immediately apparent. Striking beams and timbers run throughout, framing the various sections of this expansive room and impressive vaulted ceiling. The left half of the main barn is currently used as a large dining space and the right half is split into a sitting area and snug. Across the room is access to a veranda, with views over the walled garden beyond. To the left is access to the kitchen/breakfast room, equipped with oil fired Aga type range, electric induction hob and oven and walk-in pantry with ample space for a fridge-freezer & dishwasher. To the back of the kitchen is a hallway that leads down a short flight of steps to a long sunny corridor. Immediately to your right is a utility room and to your left is one of two doorways into the enormous workshop space. Further along the corridor you will find the luxury main bedroom suite, consisting of a very generous bedroom space with integrated storage, an ensuite bathroom and attractive views out over the walled garden via French doors. To the end of the long hallway is access to the attached garage. Back in the main barn, two separate staircases lead up to the remaining bedrooms, the left hand of which is a double bedroom that looks out over the living spaces below and with full views of the magnificent beams and timbers of the vaulted ceiling. The second set of stairs leads up to a small landing that gives access to both another balcony bedroom, plus a very generous second bedroom with built-in storage and integrated ensuite bathroom. An extension to the right of the barn has been adapted into two large offices, with walk-in storage and second front-entrance area giving access to a WC and shower cubicle.
The plot can be approached by either of two drives that cut across a band of common land to the front, leading up to the front of the barn and beyond where further off-road parking and the integrated garage can be found. An attractive walled garden sits behind the barn, well screened from the rest of the grounds. Across the rear driveway is a row of substantial workshops and garages, offering a multitude of light industrial uses. To the back of the plot is an area of more garden, laid mostly to grass.
Two thirds of the plot on the Southern side is dedicated to 10 commercially let units, registered for light industrial use. Collectively this aspect is expected to generate over £35,000 this year for the owners. Each of the units can be accessed by vehicle has its own electrical supply and toilet facilities and ample parking is available.
