Tucked away amidst stunning countryside in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty is this thoughtfully converted barn. The conversion was carried out in the mid 1980s and features some exposed brickwork and beams, wooden floors, and with a wood burner in the sitting room. On entering the property, the hallway gives rise to the 21' sitting room (which in turn leads to the dining room), a study, a downstairs shower room, and also the inviting country-style kitchen/breakfast room. There are 3 sets of French windows to the rear of the property which lead out to the pretty rear garden. A wooden staircase ascends to the first floor which is charming, set into the eaves and offering a master suite with en suite bathroom and an abundance of eaves storage. There are 2 further bedrooms which are served by an additional shower room.
The hamlet of Old Hayward Bottom is positioned between Hungerford Newtown and Chilton Foliat. The area has an abundance of footpaths and bridleways which take in the surroundings. In addition to the rural benefits the nearby town of Hungerford offers a wealth of amenities including a doctors surgery, a library, restaurants, banks and leisure facilities. The town is bordered by Freemans Marsh and Portdown Common with the Kennet and Avon Canal flowing through. There is also a mainline rail link from the town to Reading and to Paddington in approximately 1 hour. Schooling for all ages is available in the area and these include Downe House, Marlborough College and Cheam.
The property is approached via a driveway from the lane, into a gravelled parking area for several cars, where there is also a detached timber garage with adjoining storage room. There is also both a lawn and a paved area to the front of property, with access also to a detached outbuilding, which could be adapted as a home office or studio. The pretty rear garden can be accessed either around the side of the house, or via the three sets of French doors leading directly from the house on to the most attractive decked area with pergola, ideal for al fresco dining. Beyond this is an expanse of lawn raised borders flanked by wooden sleepers, and a small raised pond. The garden has a wonderful rear aspect to farmland beyond.
