Converted in the early 1990's Long Shadow Barn naturally divides into two wings providing versatile living accommodation. The house is set within its grounds of approximately one-third of an acre and is surrounded by stunning countryside views. Planning permission was granted with footings in place for a double garage with potential for accommodation above, which would allow for future scope to enhance the property with extra living and/or storage space.
From the entrance hall there are several steps leading to the sitting room, with a Cotswold stone fireplace inset with a large wood-burning stove. Double doors and a further separate door both lead out to the garden.
From the sitting room several steps lead up to the triple aspect kitchen/breakfast room which is a bright and welcoming room with feature beams and two sets of glazed doors leading out onto the patio area. The kitchen is fitted with a bespoke range of wooden base and wall units with a combination of wood and granite work tops and Italian terracotta stone floor tiles. The Rayburn cooker makes a real focal point to the room. In addition, there is a built-in oven with hob, a Butler sink and plumbing for a dishwasher and washing machine, as well as space for a tumble dryer.
An attractive wooden staircase rises from the sitting room to the first floor where the master bedroom is located. This inviting room has exposed beams and from here views can be enjoyed out to the rear of the property and the countryside beyond. The room has a ladder going up to a very useful mezzanine floor. At one end of the bedroom several steps go up to a landing area with eaves storage and an airing cupboard. From here there is a further room with sloped ceilings and inset Velux windows. This is currently used as a study, but would also make an ideal dressing room.
Bedroom two can be reached from the first floor landing and has a built in wardrobe and exposed beams. There is a family bathroom with corner bath, low level WC and wash hand basin set within a vanity unit with useful storage cupboards underneath.
Returning to the entrance hall the other wing of the house can be accessed. On the ground floor there is a double bedroom with built in wardrobes and shelves and a further storage cupboard. A downstairs cloakroom with part exposed stone walls, tiled floor, low level WC and wash hand basin completes the ground floor accommodation. A staircase with under stairs storage leads up to the first floor of this wing. To one side of the landing is a double bedroom and to the other side of the landing is a bathroom with a suite comprising; bath, corner shower cubicle, low level WC and wash hand basin.
The property is approached through a five-bar gate onto a gravelled drive large enough to park several vehicles. Planning permission exists for the erection of a double garage and the footings are already in place. The enclosed gardens 'wrap around' the property and are mostly laid to lawn, but there is also a decked area with a hot tub, a sun terrace, rose garden, an orchard and a shed with power.
