THE AGENT SAYS...
The attractive but unassuming hamstone facade with its oak front door gives nothing away about this lovely property. With vehicular access through a gated arch, almost all the windows and doors at the rear and grounds of 1.02 acres, Lavers Barn is stunningly private. Inside, the rooms are all well-proportioned and bright, with a particularly generous master bedroom that boasts its own bathroom. Multiple french doors offer great connectivity to the patio and garden, perfect for indoor-outdoor living and family life. If that werent enough, then the garden is a childs (and big kids) dream, with so much space to run and explore, and lovely trees to shelter under or maybe climb!
A solid oak door opens into the spacious entry hall. On the right is a good-sized double bedroom and to the left is the very generous master bedroom, which has a large ensuite bathroom, walk in cupboard and french doors out to the patio which wraps around the back and sides of the property.
The hall leads to the dining room which has a vaulted ceiling (with exposed timbers), accommodating the mezzanine level above, and is flooded with light from a skylight and french doors.
Adjoining the dining room is the eat-in kitchen which is fitted on three sides with traditional oak units, offering plenty of storage and worktop space. The units are complemented by cream wall tiles, a large range cooker with attractive feature splashback, granite worktops and a tiled floor in shades of grey and brown.
A corridor leads from the kitchen along the exterior wall, with french doors at either end offering access to the patio. Off this corridor are the large family bathroom, with corner bath and separate shower, and a light and nicely proportioned, square double bedroom.
At the end is the double-aspect sitting room which is full of light but also lovely and cosy. There is an attractive stone fireplace and hearth, with wide alcoves either side of the chimney breast and plenty of room for comfy seating. French doors open to a charming patio area that looks down the length of the impressive garden.
A large, multi-functional space that could be used as a home office, den, guest bedroom, gaming/craft room etc.
GARDEN AND GROUNDS
The front of the property is approached on foot by a gravel path flanked by lawn, with a herbaceous border alongside the house and hedging separating the barn from the street. Vehicle access is via a gated archway under the roof of the barn, alongside the garage, leading to a large gravel parking area. Above the garage and entrance arch is workshop and storage space, accessed from inside the
garage. A patio wraps around the back and end of the property, providing multiple spots to enjoy the south and west aspects. Outside the kitchen is an L-shaped halfheight wall sheltering a lovely spot to enjoy a morning cuppa. From the parking area, the gravel continues to form a path down through a small area of lawn, with herbaceous borders and high hedges, to the expansive garden at the end. The lawned garden is dotted with mature trees and shrubs and enclosed by low hedging.
which offers views of the open fields beyond, giving a fantastic sense of space and seclusion.
