Converted by the current owners approximately seven years ago, this stunning individual property has been skilfully created from a range of traditional barns. Although the barn is attached at one end to Wellisford Manor, ( a handsome Grade II Listed manor house) the house and gardens are private. The barns are of considerable age and have a mixture of brick and natural stone, rendered and timber clad elevations beneath a slate roof. The property offers light and airy accommodation which provides great flexibility as to use with a number of rooms being suitable for downstairs bedrooms or reception rooms. The size and spaciousness of the property is immediately evident upon entering the Reception Hall which is very much the heart of the house and from which all the main rooms radiate. The property has been designed in such a way that the vast majority of the rooms open onto the walled courtyard garden. The Drawing Room extends to over 34' and enjoys a wonderful southerly aspect with two pairs of French doors providing direct access to the courtyard garden. The Kitchen/Family Room extends to over 25' and provides a great living and entertaining space complete with Aga. The property is double glazed and has oil fired central heating with under floor heating downstairs and traditional radiators to the first floor.
In summary the accommodation provides:
Hardwood double doors with double glazed side screens opening into a particularly impressive Reception Hall with flagstone style flooring and double glazed French doors opening to the rear courtyard garden which floods this area with a good deal of natural light, one wall in exposed stone, opening through to

The gardens are very much a feature of the property and enjoy a wonderful southerly aspect and are enclosed by high stone walls and accordingly benefit from a high level of privacy. The main elevation of the house is enhanced by climbing shrubs including magnolias and roses. The garden is mainly lawned with an attractive paved dining out area enclosed by yew hedging. The property is approached from the lane over a long gravel driveway giving access to a large parking and turning area and here can be found a number of useful garden stores. In all the grounds extend to 0.5 acres. Further land is available by separate negotiation.
