Property SummaryThis newly renovated former stone agricultural barn blends modern living, with the character and charm which has been retained within the building. Such features of interest include the exposed timbers and stone work. The ground floor comprises a tiled floored reception area with cloakroom leading off. A spacious kitchen with a range of cupboards complemented by oak wood work surfaces in a modern design and wall tiling. An integrated dishwasher has been fitted and there is space for a range style cooker with extractor. Plumbing has been installed to add a free-standing American style fridge freezer. The central island adds additional storage and work surface. For those informal dining occasions there is room for a breakfast table and chairs with views through the French doors across open fields. There is a separate utility area with plumbing for a washing machine and storage. The main reception room/family area is impressive with vaulted ceiling and dual aspect French doors which flood the room with light and provide views over the beautiful surrounding countryside. The contemporary log burner standing on a stone plinth in the corner of the room provides added cosiness for winter nights. Engineered oak wood flooring flows throughout the room and ground floor complementing the hardwood central staircase which makes a lovely feature. A second ground floor room could be a study/television room or bedroom 4 with a ground floor shower room adjoining. An additional room, with a separate entrance, would make an ideal office/studio/gym or guest bedroom en-suite. The whole of the ground floor benefits from the luxury of underfloor heating. On the first floor the master bedroom has the benefit of its own en-suite shower room, there are two further bedrooms and the family bathroom. The first floor has some interesting features with exposed timbers and a galleried landing with wooden balustrade.
The barn is approached along its own private driveway flanked by open fields leading to ample space for parking. The open space surrounding the barn allows the new owner free rein to create and sculpt a stunning garden and landscape to maximise the privacy and views of the fabulous location. Paved stone terraces can be accessed from both the kitchen/breakfast room and the open plan family room. Up to 3 acres of pasture land are being offered with the barn, boundaries to be agreed with the seller. There are no public footpaths or rights of way across the land.
