Converted in 2008, this brick-built barn was formerly owned by Lord Derby and now offers generously spacious and light accommodation throughout, highlighted by the vaulted ceilings with exposed beams and rafters. The open plan dining hall and kitchen form a sought-after family hub with the formal reception rooms an added bonus. Three double bedrooms lead off the galleried landing – one with en suite and dressing room – and the property has planning permission for a fourth within the integral garage. More than ample driveway parking and totally secluded gardens make this a must-see property.
The broad timber door with glazed inserts opens to the generously spacious dining hall and combined kitchen area with vaulted ceiling. A large “barn door” window and two further windows allow natural light to flow through the area and reflect on the travertine tiled flooring with underfloor heating which continues throughout the ground floor accommodation. The area has ample room for a dining table and chairs, is lit by seven wall lights and there is a personal door off to the double garage.
The kitchen space is fitted with a good range of ivory shaded wall and base units incorporating display shelves, drawers and a peninsula breakfast bar – all units having black granite effect worktops over. An enamel one and a half bowl sink unit is inset and has a swan neck mixer tap over. Also inset is a four-ring ceramic hob with a canopy extractor fan above and a double oven and grill below, and integrated appliances include an automatic dishwasher and a fridge.
Double doors give way to the principal lounge and an impressive oak spindle staircase rises and turns to the first-floor galleried landing whilst a cupboard beneath provides storage and houses the underfloor heating manifolds.
The very spacious and well proportioned, triple aspect lounge has two windows to the side, two to the rear and French windows to the sun room. Again, there are seven wall lights for evening ambience and, to add to the aura, a multi-fuel burning stove rests on a brick hearth and has a terracotta tiled fire back.
The adjoining sun room has a bay window with inset door to the front garden plus three Velux skylight windows to create a light, bright and comfortable retreat, and also has four wall lights for evening illumination.
A latch door opens to the cloakroom with front window and fitted with a two-piece white suite comprising wall mounted wash basin and close coupled W.c. There is also a wall light, extractor fan and a chrome heated towel rail.
The split-level galleried and butterfly-style landing features a king truss, has seven wall lighting points and two radiators to warm.
To the left wing, steps rise to the master suite with a spacious, triple aspect bedroom area, warmed by two radiators and having two pendant lights to the vaulted ceiling, five wall lights and spot lights highlighting the beams.
A door opens to the dressing room which has a rear window, is warmed by a radiator and is fitted with clothes hanging rails and shoe shelves. The fully monochrome tiled en suite has a window to the front and is fitted with a white four-piece Heritage suite comprising oak panelled bath, vanity set wash hand basin, a glazed corner shower cubicle, and a low flush W.c. Strip spotlights are fitted to the exposed ceiling beams and there is an over-basin light with combined shaver point.
The right wing of the landing has two further dual aspect, double bedrooms with wall lights and radiators. Both rooms are served by a shower room, fully tiled in natural shades and comprising a white suite of pedestal wash basin with mirror, light and shaver point over, a close coupled W.c. and a glazed shower cabinet with Galaxy Aqua 3000 unit. A white ladder-style heated rail is in hand to warm the towels and there is also a wall mounted fan heater.
The property is approached through a gateway leading to cobbled driveway providing parking space for several cars and also giving way to a pebbled hardstanding for a caravan, boat or trailer. This latter area also gives access to the two electronically controlled up and over doors of the integral double garage which has power, light and ample space for a workshop and utility area with plumbing for a washing machine. The extensive and south west facing lawn garden is completely secluded by high hedging and mature trees and shrubs. A cobbled patio and further flagged patio offer lovely seating areas in full sun, perfect for container planting and the garden wraps around the gable end of the property and returns to the cobbled driveway. Added conveniences include a timber storage shed, a hardstanding for bin storage and an outside tap.
NB The property has been granted planning permission for a fourth bedroom conversion in part of the integral garage.
