This fabulous village home is set within a most sought after small and select development affording delightful views over the neighbouring countryside.
Hillrise Barn has been finished to an exacting standard throughout; with attention to detail being evident in every room. The current owners during their years of ownership have continued to not only enhance, but improve the property. The light and spacious accommodation has high quality finishes throughout ~ including underfloor heating beneath stone floors and Oak flooring in the hall and sitting room and fitted with plantation style shutters to most windows. The heating system is via an air source heat pump, making it environmentally friendly as well as efficient.
A few features to note include the stunning entrance hall, a most welcoming space having a high vaulted ceiling and picture window to the front ensuring that the light pours into the property ~ finished with a bespoke Oak staircase and fully tiled cloakroom. The kitchen/breakfast room is magnificent with a full range of integrated appliances, which seamlessly leads to the garden room with doors that open onto the outside sun terrace and covered seating area. The outlook over the garden and adjoining open pasture (AONB) with views towards Hambledon Hill in the distance, are superb.
The sitting room is dual aspect with doors that lead to the rear garden and double Oak glazed doors back into the hallway ~ completing the ground floor is the fully equipped utility room with door to garden.
On the first floor leading from the landing is access to all bedrooms and bathroom. The master bedroom suite, with Juliet balcony to the rear, again capturing the stunning view ~ has a walk-in dressing room and a luxury en-suite shower room. Three further bedrooms complete the first floor all with features of their own and a modern family bathroom.
The gardens lie immediately to the rear of the house; there is a large paved sun terrace (which can be accessed from the garden room, sitting room and utility). This is truly a wonderful place to sit and enjoy the nicer weather and views. Adjacent to the garden room is an Oak constructed covered seating area where you can take cover from the elements throughout the year. Beyond the sun terrace the garden rises onto a delightful landscaped garden with areas of lawn and planted borders ~ the garden adjoins open pasture and blends into the neighbouring countryside.
A double garage with two double timber doors and loft room above is adjacent to the property and parking for a couple of vehicles in front of this building is very convenient.
