College Barn is a stone built barn conversion which was
converted in the 1980's. The property forms part of a small
complex of converted farm buildings all of which are built of
natural stone under slate roofs. College Barn has been
comprehensively refurbished by its current owners including
a loft conversion and features beautiful, characterful and
individual interiors with spacious and versatile living
accommodation arranged over three floors. The property is quietly situated down a no through road just off the village
centre, away from passing traffic. It benefits from a double
garage, extensive driveway parking and gas fired central
The front door leads in to a large reception hall with
cloakroom comprising WC and wash basin, tiled floor, built
in storage under the stairs and two further store cupboards. The hall opens out into a useful area currently setup as a study but could equally be a lovely garden room. A doorway leads into a double aspect sitting room, which has exposed ceiling beams, double doors to the front terrace and stone fireplace housing a gas effect stove. To the front and accessed from the hall is a formal dining room with wooden floor. The kitchen/dining room is a beautiful room enjoying a twin aspect overlooking the gardens and fitted with cream shaker style units including a large island, there is space for a dining table, along with doors out to the side and rear gardens.
On the first floor is a very spacious landing which has a
multitude of uses but currently setup as a pleasant seating
area and staircase to the second floor. The master bedroom
has a lovely dressing room with walk in wardrobe, plus
further built in wardrobes and an en-suite shower room with
shower cubicle, WC and wash basin. The second bedroom
also has an en-suite bathroom with electric shower and fitted wardrobes. There are three further double bedrooms with fitted storage and a family bathroom with cast iron rolled top bath, WC, wash hand basin and separate shower cubicle and underfloor heating.
On the second floor are two very useful rooms that could be used as additional bedrooms or study/hobby rooms. There is access to eaves storage and the remainder of the loft space.
The property is approached over a shared driveway with the neighbouring properties, which in turn leads to a wrought iron gate with personal gate opening onto an extensive gravelled driveway providing parking for many vehicles. There is a detached double garage with space for two cars, electric door and workshop. To the rear of the garage is a small lean to storage area. The gardens have been beautifully landscaped and to the front are mainly laid to lawn with herbaceous beds and borders, apple trees, along with a pleasant secluded paved terrace to enjoy the evening sun. There is a pedestrian gate to one side which provides to the rear garden.
The rear garden is well established enjoying a private and
sunny aspect with views over the River Yeo and historic
bridge . There is an extensive paved patio adjacent to the
property which gives way to well-maintained lawns with
herbaceous beds and borders, shrubs and mature trees. There is a further garden area leading down to the river with gated access to the river frontage (please note the property benefits from fishing rights), along with raised vegetable beds with an established asparagus bed, soft fruit bushes and a BBQ area.
