The barn is laid out over three floors, and retains a wealth of exposed beams to both the walls and ceilings. You enter into a green oak entrance vestibule with a flag stone floor and then on into the reception hall with terracotta tiled floor that continues into the kitchen which is on your left. The kitchen and dining room is fitted with modern ‘shaker’ style units, granite work surfaces, an ‘everhot’ range cooker and a freestanding island unit. To your right from the hall is the downstairs cloakroom and utility room, then up a couple of steps into the study or dining room, which has a full height vaulted ceiling, the staircase rising to the two galleried landings, fitted book shelves and a brick wall with exposed timber beams. At the far end of the house is the sitting room with doors out onto the garden, and an attractive fireplace with a wood burning stove.
On the first floor the galleried landings look over what is currently used as the main study area. To your right and up a few stairs is a shower room, with what is currently used as the master bedroom next door. To your left are three further bedrooms and a family bathroom. On the second floor is a guest bedroom suite with a study or dressing area, and separate shower room.

The approach to the garden is by way of a gravelled, gated, driveway/parking area. A brick paved footpath leads to the patio area which is shingle with a central feature and mature planting. The garden continues through a rose arch to the main part of the garden which is laid to lawn and bordered by high level hedge and attractive mature flower borders. There is an additional patio area over which is a pergola covered by a grapevine. There are steps down to a lower patio area, with mature planting. Another set of steps lead up to a Mediterranean themed garden, where there is a summer house and a home office or studio which has double-glazed doors and windows to the front and side, power, light, a laminate floor, and attractive high level, port-hole windows. Garden shed with power. From there the garden path winds back round to the main lawn and patio area.
