1 The Barn is a fine, Grade II listed semi-detached 3/4 bedroom barn, offering some wonderful open plan living with magnificent timber framing and tall vaulted ceiling. The barn was restored and converted approximately 20 years ago and is set in a beautiful rural location with some picturesque views. It is a lovely country home of immense style and character set in a plot of just over 0.7 acre, with a double garage.
From the lobby to the front, the accommodation leads to a magnificent, well proportioned, open plan area with flagstone floor, full height vaulted ceiling with exposed natural timbers and tall glazed windows, giving maximum light. The room is such a generous size, that it can be used as a drawing room, with an area for a dining table and a further area for study/relaxation. The kitchen overlooks the principal reception area and is well fitted and again incorporates period features, but could benefit from new appliances. Included on the ground floor are two double bedrooms, family bathroom and study.
On the first floor and oversailing each side of the reception area, there is a principal bedroom suite with ensuite bathroom on one side and on the other side, a further room, which is currently used as a formal dining room, but could easily be partitioned to make a good size fourth bedroom.
