A SPACIOUS AND ADAPTABLE BARN CONVERSION OCCUPYING A LOVELY QUIET POSITION WITH SUPERB VIEWS ACROSS ADJOINING COUNTRYSIDE TO THE WELSH HILLS. DESCRIPTION Bay Tree Barn is a charming attached barn conversion created from a traditional agricultural building. Constructed of brick under a tiled roof the barn was converted in 2009 along with the other farm buildings to form the Edge Grange Barns Development, a select scheme of 6 individual properties. The site is superbly positioned, set well back off a quiet country lane and slightly elevated providing for far reaching views to the south and west. Bay Tree Barn occupies arguably the finest position on the site facing due west and with only two other properties passing it. During the present owner's tenure it has been well maintained and improved. It provides spacious and well appointed accommodation arranged over two floors served by LPG heating, providing an adaptable layout suitable both for family living and a single person or couple. The principal rooms are all across the front elevation taking in plenty of natural light and enjoying the views. The sitting room has a dual aspect onto the courtyard as well as bi-fold doors opening to the garden providing for both indoor and outdoor entertaining space. The kitchen has oak floor, vaulted ceiling, double French doors to the terrace, rear window with shutters overlooking the courtyard, half height feature wall dividing the kitchen from family room with feature beams above and incorporates a range of wall and floor units with cupboards and drawers beneath granite work surfaces, integrated dishwasher, Rangemaster cooker with double oven, grill, warming drawer and 5 ring LPG hob and griddle. The kitchen is open plan to the family room which also has French doors to outside, tiled floor, vaulted ceiling and a brick fireplace with woodburner. These two rooms are of generous proportions and have outstanding views, and provide open plan entertaining space with access to the terrace enabling indoor/outdoor living. The vestibule with half glazed stable door leads to the hall which is in the centre of the property and has a tiled floor with full height window providing views over the garden and countryside. There is a utility room, also with storage and a Worcester boiler, the study has a full height shutter window and oak flooring which could be used as a double bedroom, and a formal sitting room with bi-folding doors to the tawn. At first floor level the landing leads to all the bedrooms having shuttered windows and feature beams. There are three spacious double bedrooms, all having vaulted ceilings and fitted wardrobes and space for freestanding furniture, a family bathroom and en-suite shower room both with quality sanitary ware. The master bedroom is particularly impressive with solid oak fronted fitted wardrobes, uninterrupted panoramic views of the Welsh hills and feature beams. The main bathroom has vaulted ceiling, feature beams, and freestanding double ended bath with a view.
