This definitive and striking mews style stone barn conversion, set within the Grape Lane Conservation Area, offers a contemporary life-style amidst the characteristic construction of a former era. The loft-style apartment aura flows throughout with the capacious open-plan living space available on both first and second floors. Alongside this are three light and airy double bedrooms, a family bathroom, shower room and en suite facilities to the master bedroom plus, outside, there is a communal garden area, a single garage and two private parking spaces within the walled and regularly maintained grounds.
The impressive entrance is approached via York stone flag steps leading up to the arched former barn entry which shelters a tall glazed doorway, an outside light and meter cupboard. Daylight floods through into the hallway with solid oak flooring, a painted spindle staircase leading to the first floor, a further meter cupboard and a door to the rear hallway and garden.
The first-floor landing with exposed beams has a full height picture window to the front and a door into the inner hall with built-in storage cupboard space.
The open plan living/dining/kitchen area with its high beamed ceiling and feature windows replicates a loft-style duplex apartment. The kitchen area has a good range of modern style wall and base units with co-ordinating tiling between, granite effect work surfaces over and including an island storage cabinet. Inset stainless steel appliances and pull-out cabinets create a stylish finish and include a one and a half bowl single drainer sink unit and mixer tap, a five-ring Kuppersbusch gas hob with chimney extractor over, an eye-level complementary double oven and grill and a microwave oven. Integrated appliances include a fridge freezer, automatic dishwasher, a combined automatic washing machine and tumble dryer, and there is also a wall-mounted intercom control panel.
Beyond the glass brick divider is the dual aspect master bedroom having far-reaching views over the Yarrow valley through the circular window. The high-gloss white fitted wardrobes take up one wall and the adjoining fully tiled en-suite has a white three-piece suite of contemporary style to include a pedestal wash hand basin, low flush w.c., shower cubicle, an extractor fan and recessed down lights. Accessed from the inner hallway, the principal bathroom is partially tiled, has a window to the rear and is fitted with a corner bath and hand shower, a pedestal wash hand basin, closed coupled w.c., and ladder style radiator to warm the towels. Bedroom Two has a picture window to the rear with rural views and bedroom three overlooks the front and has wall lighting points, built-in wardrobes, one having a mirror panel with recessed down-lights over and the rooms are warmed by radiators.
A further flight of stairs leads to the second-floor landing which has a vaulted and beamed ceiling and houses two spacious storage cupboards into the eaves. A door gives way to the expansive loft lounge with part solid oak flooring, exposed rafters and trusses, six Velux windows to the rear, recessed down lights, Neutron lighting and a surround-sound system creating the perfect cinema room. This room could also be transformed into the ultimate luxury master bedroom as just off is an en-suite shower room with a three-piece suite comprising pedestal wash hand basin, corner shower cubicle and low flush w.c. The floor is tiled and there is an eaves storage cupboard.
Outside, the block paved walled courtyard between the two barns provides the property with two parking spaces whilst to the rear there is a single garage and further parking. A paved pathway gives way to the communal lawn gardens with shrub and flower borders protected by lattice-style fencing.
The property is warmed by a Worcester gas central heating condensing boiler which is housed in the eaves storage cupboard in the loft lounge.
