A superb family house created by converting a large barn and outbuilding and situated in a truly outstanding elevated location on the edge of the village of Coldharbour. A clear sense of design has achieved an excellent flow of accommodation with a relaxing atmosphere of well-appointed informality. The kitchen and main living room is a superb vaulted space with access out to both the main garden and to an enclosed courtyard via a stable door. The dual aspect and floor to ceiling windows flood the room with light. There is an additional dual aspect family room, and scope for a further large living space, by converting a substantial games room/gym. The main bedroom has a dressing room and there are two/three further bedrooms and two bath/shower rooms.
Whilst already a substantial house, planning permission (which has now lapsed) was granted in 2015 to add additional accommodation potentially extending the house by up to a further 1364 sq ft. (Ref MO/2014/1247). This would add an impressive entrance and stair hall, as well as additional bedroom and living space if desired.
The Barn is approached by an impressive hedge lined drive rising through surrounding farmland for about half a mile (760 meters). The property is situated in an elevated position with outstanding and distant views. The private drive passes the tennis court and culminates by the new garage base. There is implemented planning consent for a new ancillary garage and store. The base has been constructed and measures 663 sq ft (61.6 sq m). The gardens are landscaped with lawn, fountain garden, and an enclosed cobbled courtyard accessed from the kitchen. The lawns gently descend into a wooded dell and a fruit orchard. There are wonderful views and in all, about 1.42 acres.
