A charming Grade II Listed barn conversion situated in a lovely semi-rural position on the edge of the village with views to the West across fields. Thought to date from around 1860, the property forms part of a courtyard development that was converted for residential use in the early 1990s. The property retains many period details including exposed timber beams, arched and oculus windows and fish-scale roof tiles whilst the interior now incorporates hardwood window frames, Corian kitchen work surfaces and contemporary bathroom suites.
Configured over three levels with galleried landings and many exposed structural timbers, the property offers versatile accommodation with sitting and dining rooms on the lower ground floor, a kitchen/breakfast room overlooking the dining room and a study/bed 4 on the raised ground floor that has a door opening into the garden. The principal bedroom with en suite shower room, two further bedrooms and a family bathroom are all situated on the first floor. The vendors have plans to extend the property to create more living and bedrooms space, subject to granting of relevant consents.
The principal garden to the side of the house is enclosed by picket fencing and a mature yew and laurel hedges with a terrace being ideal for al fresco entertaining. To the front, the gardens are laid to lawn with a brick paved path to the door whilst an entrance at the rear is approached through a courtyard landscaped with raised beds with reclaimed brick and flagstone paths. The double garage has a studio room above.
