Harvest Barn is a truly stunning individual detached character conversion occupying a delightful setting tucked away in a quiet backwater on a generous established plot which approaches one acre.

This beautiful stone and pantiled barn is believed to date back to the 1800s and has been tastefully developed and extended to create a truly unique and sprawling home which extends to approximately 4200 sq ft.

The property has been cleverly designed to retain its inherent character and combines both a wealth of period style features and natural materials with the benefits and elements of contemporary living. This is evident when you first walk into the main entrance being met with beautiful exposed oak timbers and internal stonework with a combination of oak and Travertine flooring and light coming through a galleried glass landing with conservation skylight. Each room has its own individuality, many with dual aspects and the main receptions having contemporary solid fuel stoves as well as wonderful aspect out across the established gardens.

This unique home offers five reception rooms as well as an open plan living/dining kitchen beautifully appointed with a generous range of contemporary units and integrated appliances with utility room. Each area of the property offers its own atmosphere combining cosy receptions with a stunning conversion of the original barn which has created two substantial open plan living areas with high vaulted heavily beamed ceilings and exposed internal stonework. The lower level games room makes a wonderful entertaining space and linking up into a mezzanine sitting room with superb dual aspect and elevated views. From here a contemporary glass landing area with aspect down into the main hallway links into the first floor accommodation comprising five bedrooms, the master suite benefitting from both walk-in wardrobe and contemporary bathroom. In addition there are two further ensuite shower rooms and bedrooms 4 and 5 serviced by a separate contemporary bathroom.

The property occupies a beautiful plot which offers an excellent degree of privacy tucked away at the edge of this pretty hamlet, with substantial drive and substantial attached garage with workshop at the rear. The gardens are mainly laid to lawn with well stocked beds and established trees as well as ornamental pond.

In addition there has been a conscious use of technology to improve efficiency and environmental awareness including rainwater harvest system, supply and extract heat recovery and ground sourced heat pump providing underfloor heating throughout with plant room containing a pressurised hot water system.

Overall viewing is truly the only way to appreciate this superb bespoke home's accommodation on offer and wonderful location.
