This exceptionally well presented and spacious barn conversion is arranged over three floors and is brimming with character.
Located on an idyllic rural Victorian farm site steeped in history, it has been sympathetically converted and updated to give it a modern twist.
Approached down a shared drive, past one of its allocated parking spaces, you reach the property sat neatly at the end, its red brick and dark wooden exterior giving a nod to its period farm heritage.
You enter into a bright hallway with warm wooden effect flooring contrasting beautifully with the cream, part wooden panelled, walls.
The wooden flooring stretches throughout the ground floor living spaces, seamlessly linking them, creating a sense of flow and space.
First on the left is the kitchen/breakfast room. The well separated kitchen area forms an open U space enabling you to chat to friends and family as you prepare dinner. Plenty of cream units topped with wooden work surfaces are separated by the integrated appliances whilst a window above the sink brings in more natural light. At the far end there is ample room for a table and chairs, a larder cupboard and space and plumbing for additional appliances.
At the front of the house is the bright double aspect dining room, which is a versatile space, as it could double up as a home office or a playroom, as it is currently presented.
To the rear is the welcoming living room flooded with light from its glazed doors that can lie open in the summer months extending your living space. A wood burning stove adds character and warmth to the room.
The first floor boasts three great bedrooms, with beautiful exposed brick walls and large windows delivering green views. The master bedroom has a contemporary en-suite shower room and a stylish bathroom with freestanding bath completes the floor.
A further flight of stairs leads you up to the second floor with a further double bedroom with a room off it that would be perfect as a dressing room but could also be used as a home office.
Outside to the rear its garden is laid mainly to lawn with high perimeter hedging providing privacy and a safely contained sanctuary for pets and children. A paved terrace sits at the back of the house giving plenty of space for alfresco dining while a back gate leads your visitors in from their parking area.
Brimming with character this beautiful home enjoys open countryside on its doorstep. It is also well placed for commuters being only a mile from the local mainline stations with excellent rail links to central London. A must see!
