A deceptively spacious barn conversion located in beautiful rural setting in a small development of converted farm buildings. The well-presented four bedroom house was originally converted in 1991 and benefits from many features including high ceilings, parquet flooring and character beams, and extends to a spacious 2,117 square feet. The versatile accommodation includes the potential for an annexe suite if desired. Externally the beautiful landscaped rear gardens are a delight.
The front door opens into a large entrance hall, with a WC and shower room, stairs leading to the first floor and attractive quarry-tiled flooring which continues into the kitchen, sitting and dining rooms. The living space includes a spacious kitchen with white shaker style wall and base units with granite worktops, tiled splash back, electric range cooker and space for a breakfast table, and an impressive 30 ft. dual aspect sitting/dining room which benefits from a wood burning stove. The remaining ground floor accommodation includes a study/snug, fourth bedroom, modern shower room, utility room/kitchen. This area could easily be used as a separate annexe especially as it has its own access into the study/snug. Upstairs, there are three bedrooms, a family bathroom and useful storage cupboards on the landing and a separate boiler. The two main bedrooms are generous in size, with vaulted ceilings and beams, beautiful parquet floors, and views to the garden and countryside beyond. The third bedroom has a built-in mezzanine bed area with ample space for a desk below. The bathroom has been half-tiled with attractive pale grey panelling, a white suite and built in storage space.
