Guide price

Bedrooms: 3
A characterful Grade II Listed threshing barn occupying an idyllic rural setting on the edge of the village, with stunning views and countryside walks from the doorstep. The barn sits on a secluded plot and has excellent parking and a sizeable double garage, which has potential to be extended, subject to planning permission being granted. The pretty rear garden faces south and has been landscaped around a central circular lawn. The overall size of the plot is 1/2 acre, which includes a fenced paddock of 1/4 acre.

The feeling of light and space is immediate - as you enter the barn there is a sizeable, vaulted dining hall providing a magnificent and flexible reception space with exposed beams, full-height windows and French doors to the garden. The generously-proportioned sitting room includes a study area, and a feature brick fireplace with a wood-burning stove. The family room/study could double as an occasional fourth bedroom. The bespoke farmhouse kitchen/breakfast room includes a dual plate Rayburn cooker and granite work surfaces, together with an adjoining utility room and cloakroom.

On the first floor, the amazing galleried landing is a particular feature of the property with countryside views to the front and rear. There are three double bedrooms, including a spacious principal bedroom suite with a dressing area and bathroom, with a freestanding bath and shower cubicle. There is also a Jack-and-Jill bathroom linking the other two bedrooms.

The gardens and grounds are a particular feature of the barn and provide a beautiful setting having been landscaped to take full advantage of the south-facing aspect to the rear. There are a variety of areas of interest, each with a colour theme, together with young and mature trees and a brick terrace providing an ideal outside seating area. A gate through a mature hedgerow leads to an area of lawn and the paddock beyond. A private driveway to the front provides ample parking and access to the detached double timber clad garage and workshop. The garage is not listed and could potentially be altered to create additional ancillary accommodation, subject to planning consent being granted.
