This charming village property was designed to combine the benefits of a modern family home with the style of a barn conversion. Having been a busy family home for the past
twenty years, this substantial property offers the opportunity for a new owner, should they desire, to make it their own and enhance this individual village property, providing the space and perfect environment to embrace village life.
The spacious accommodation comprises of a very impressive entrance hall with attractive floor to ceiling windows and front door which are characteristic of a barn conversion. This can really be appreciated once inside the property where you get your first glimpse of the smart staircase, and galleried landing which are flooded with light from two skylights. To the front of the house is a generous size kitchen/breakfast room, complete with an electric Aga and a good selection of units, plenty of work surfaces and enough space for the family to gather for informal family suppers or just to catch up around the breakfast table. The glazed door from the kitchen opens onto the sunny courtyard patio which runs along the side of the property. This private and peaceful spot is perfect to sit and read the paper, and can easily be made secure from the front and back of the property for pets or children to play within earshot of the kitchen. Adjacent to the kitchen is the utility/boot room which also has a door to the side.
Moving back into the main entrance hall, there are doors to the three reception rooms, all are well proportioned and generous size rooms. To the rear of the property there is a separate dining room with a glazed door and side panels overlooking the garden and a window to the side. This is a good size room providing enough space for a dining room table and chairs plus some occasional furniture. The generous sitting room has windows overlooking the front and side gardens of the property, and French doors with glazed side panels open out onto the rear garden. An additional reception room located between the sitting room and dining room, could be used as a play room/snug, or study. Also on the ground floor is a cloakroom.
The recently painted staircase leads you to the galleried landing which like the entrance hall is light, open and airy and provides a different aspect of the hallway below. Upstairs
there are four bedrooms, the master with an ensuite bathroom with a separate shower, and a family bathroom which also benefits from a shower.
The property has the added benefit of a one bedroom annexe with ensuite bathroom which is attached to the double garage. The annexe has its own little courtyard which is situated behind the shed offering some outside space & privacy from the main house. This could be used to generate a rental income, provide a B&B opportunity or provide ancillary accommodation for a dependant family member.
Grounds & Gardens
The front of the property and the rear of the garages is screened from the lane by mature hedging, which runs along the boundary. On reaching the driveway, which can be secured by a five bar gate, you will see the driveway which leads around to Weavers Barn, one of two individual properties. The gravel drive swings around in front of the house providing parking for several cars and access to the double garage which is built of stone and adds a
certain authenticity. The exterior façade is softened with mature climbing roses and wisteria, and the front is planted with various shrubs and bushes which bring some greenery and interest to the driveway. The plot wraps around all four sides of the property providing utility areas for storage and
bins etc. and is easily accessible via the gated access to the left and a courtyard garden to the right. The private rear garden is planted with a variety of trees and shrubs.
