The Property
Pushing aside the stable door, you step onto the stone floor of the sitting room, with impressive beams and timbers throughout. A large wood-burning stove takes centre stage, and in one corner solid oak stairs coil up to the second-floor. A striking timber door gives way to a sizeable reception room currently used as a generous study space, ideal for working from home. From the sitting room a small lobby links to a handy ground-floor WC. A passageway with seating area leads through to the kitchen, which is fitted with a good range of worktop space, storage units and integrated appliances. To the far end is a traditional style electric Aga for cooking and under the counter you will find a double fridge and dishwasher. Lastly, a large copper butler sink finds a home within this quintessential country kitchen. Branching from the main barn to the rest of the ground-floor, is the dining/family room; another equally impressive living space with full glass frontage looking out into the courtyard and two sets of French doors that let the outside world in. At the opposite end a short hallway gives access to the generous utility room, which in-turn links to a boiler room and sizeable boot room to the rear of the property, providing plenty of storage and external access. A bathroom fitted with bathtub, toilet and basin is also accessed from the hallway. Completing the accommodation on this floor is two tandem ground-floor double bedrooms, forming an ideal guest wing to the barn. The second-floor boasts two large double bedrooms both with integrated storage, connected by a landing that offers plenty of eaves storage. Lastly we have a shower room that services this floor, equipped with toilet, wash basin and shower cubicle. The wealth of beams, timbers and character features continue throughout the second-floor.

Garden & Grounds
A long driveway leads away from the road down to where the plot opens up and culminates in a large area of off-road parking, with space for multiple vehicles. Large trees line the rear boundary between which views over the fields beyond the plot are there to be enjoyed. A five-bar gate gives way to an amazing brick-paved courtyard area, surrounded by the barn on three sides. Various well stocked plant beds can be found, along with small trees and shrubs, creating a beautiful space to enjoy alfresco dining. The remainder of the plot is laid to grass and to the left corner sits a large pond with seating area. Behind the barn is a neat courtyard beside the boot room access.
