A detached barn conversion with beautiful character features and remarkably spacious accommodation which has been subject to considerable expenditure and improvement by the current vendors including the creation of an appealing studio/holiday cottage and a cattery, each providing opportunities for supplemental income.
The versatile accommodation is illustrated on the floorplan overleaf and briefly comprises an impressive reception hall with cobbled floors and stairs rising to the first floor. From the hall, doors lead to the bathroom, comprising bath and separate shower cubicle, bedroom 4, inner hallway leading to 2 further bedrooms and then on to the kitchen/breakfast room.
The kitchen/breakfast room comprises a range of base and wall units with inset one and a half bowl stainless steel sink, 6-ring gas hob, plumbing and appliance space for dishwasher and island unit with stool recess. Door into rear hall/utility room with base-level oil-fired boiler, air source heat pump, rear door and further door into cloakroom with wc. From the kitchen, a door leads into the stunning timber-framed conservatory with contemporary woodburner and doors to the rear courtyard.
From both the kitchen and entrance hall, stairs rise to the superb, open-plan 33’ (10m) lounge/dining room which is split level with exposed beams and stonework, contemporary woodburner, galleried landing leading to the master bedroom with en suite bathroom, comprising bath and separate shower cubicle.
Converted by the current vendors in 2014 with permission to use as a holiday let, currently providing a useful supplemental income. It comprises a double bedroom with en suite shower room and a comfortable open-plan kitchen and lounge area with woodburner and views over the courtyard.
The property is approached from the parish road via a 5-bar gate to the driveway, gravelled parking area for several vehicles and the detached timber garage. A range of single-storey, attached stone and slate barns demark the south and western boundaries of the property and have been adapted to create a former Cattery with nine pens and an isolation pen, a range of workshops, storerooms and games room. We understand from the vendor there is lapsed planning permission for the creation of a 2 further holiday units.
