This outstanding stone-built barn conversion offers impressively spacious and light accommodation throughout and the double height hallway gives a true sense of arrival. Having three reception rooms, a superb breakfast kitchen, a master bedroom with luxury en suite and a further three double bedrooms, this lovely home ticks all the boxes before even mentioning its stunning rural location.
An arched open porch with stone apron and pendant light shelters the solid oak panelled door which is set into a corresponding arch with surrounding etched glass panels. This opens to the impressively light, double-height hallway with a stone feature wall and corresponding glass wall taking in the rural panorama whilst a spindle staircase with broad steps rises and turns to the first floor. Contrary to many barn conversions, the overriding impression here is the light and spacious aura found throughout.
The principal dual-aspect lounge with decorative coving has a bow window to the front and French windows with glazed side panels to the rear overlooking the garden. Two radiators supplement warmth from the multi-fuel burning stove which is set in a composite stone Minster style fire surround and hearth and there are pendant lights and wall lights for evening ambience.
Double doors off the hall lead into a spacious dining room/family room with decorative coving and a picture window giving open views to the front. There is pendant lighting and a telephone point. From here, double doors open to the kitchen and a further door leads to a comfortably airy dual-aspect sitting room, currently used as a study, having a window to the side and a long panel window to the front.
The spacious dining kitchen has a picture window to the rear and French window opening to the patio. The floor is Travertine and coordinating splash tiling is strategically placed between the white gloss wall and base units which incorporate drawers and glazed cabinets. Polished oak work surfaces surround and, to one end, a raised glass breakfast bar provides a casual dining area plus there is space for a kitchen table if preferred. The surfaces incorporate an inset double-bowl stainless steel sink unit with swan-neck mixer tap which is set below the window and also a Rangemaster Toledo five-ring range cooker which has a complementary stainless-steel chimney-style extractor fan over. Integrated appliances include a fridge and automatic dishwasher and warmth is provided by kick-board heating and a chrome ladder-style heated rail.
A door opens to the utility room with quarry-tiled floor and doors leading to the front drive, rear patio and garage. There is an array of fitted white cabinets and drawers with splash tiling between, plus space and plumbing for a range of white goods. A side-draining stainless-steel sink unit with mixer tap is set below the window to the rear and there are inset spot lights and a radiator.
Completing the ground floor accommodation, from the hallway is an inner hall with coats hanging space and just off is a cloakroom with an opaque window to the rear, pendant light and radiator. The two-piece white suite comprises a pedestal wash hand basin and low-flush w.c.
At the top of the stairs, the landing has inset spotlights and pendant lighting to enhance this impressive space. Built-in cupboards line the wall of the corridor off, one of which houses the hot water tank and has linen shelves.
The beautifully appointed master bedroom has a large window to the rear, pendant lighting and radiator. A range of fitted furniture includes three double and a single wardrobe, nightstand, dressing table and chest of drawers. A door leads to the luxury, split-level en suite with two opaque windows to the front and inset spot lights highlighting the five-piece white suite which comprises a pedestal wash hand basin, corner shower cubicle, low-flush w.c., bidet and timber panelled bath with centralised taps. The walls are part tiled to strategic splash areas and there is a heated rail for warming towels.
Bedrooms two, three and four all have ample space for furniture, pendant lighting and radiators. Bedroom two has a window to the front, bedroom three is dual-aspect with windows to the front and side, and bedroom four has a window to the rear. All three are served by the very spacious family bathroom, with part tiled walls, having two opaque windows to the rear and inset spot lights. The white suite comprises a panelled bath, corner shower, pedestal wash hand basin and low-flush w.c.
Set beyond a low stone wall with double timber gates, the barn is approached via a pebbled driveway with parking for several cars and leading to an attached double garage whilst alongside is a raised lawn area dotted with shrubs and specimen trees. The double garage has a window to the rear, electric roller-shutter door, power and light and there is also useful eaves storage space.
The rear garden has a York stone flagged sun terrace stretching across the rear of the property from which to appreciate the superb and far-reaching views whilst a central island flower bed and further pebbled bed, ideal for container planting, add colour and interest. Sheltered by the beech hedge is a fruit cage area containing a variety of soft fruit plants. Beyond this, the extensive lawn reaches down to the hedged border which has a range of shrubs and trees intermingled.
