THE PROPERTY

Dyers Barn was created from a detached field barn, which is found along a tiny country lane and provides well proportioned and highly flexible accommodation where natural materials have been chosen to provide warmth and quality throughout. Both properties enjoy underfloor heating throughout. The cottage annexe was more recently built to compliment the main dwelling and would be ideal for a dependent relation or to let out for holidays (subject to necessary planning consent). A delightful walled courtyard garden provides an entrance to the property and through original arched openings glazed sliding doors create living inside and out. The entrance hall having a magnificent ham stone turning staircase leads to the study, which could also be used as the sixth bedroom. Jura marble flooring lies throughout the ground floor and oak flooring to the first floor. The kitchen is well fitted with a range of contemporary cupboards and good quality Miele appliances and also has doors leading out to the courtyard garden and again to the rear terrace. The property offers excellent reception space including an impressive studio style first floor sitting room enjoying glorious outlooks and having a fireplace with a HWAM wood burning stove. French doors from the sitting room lead out onto a roof terrace which has decking and a glass balustrade. Three bedrooms are arranged over the first floor, one being en suite and there is also a family bathroom. A secondary staircase from the rear hall leads to the wing bedrooms. The principal bedroom is quite magnificent and is found on the second floor beyond a further turning staircase, has a vaulted ceiling with exposed timbers, a freestanding bath and two stone wash hand basins and en suite shower room. A further en suite ground floor bedroom is ideal for a teenager or an elderly relative enjoying its own entrance leading onto a courtyard. Dyers Cottage is a substantial cottage annexe to the main house and was built in keeping with the original barn having stone pillared and glazed entrance. There is travertine flooring throughout the ground floor and oak flooring to the first floor. Spacious open plan living/sitting area with wood burning stove, French doors leading onto the rear terrace and a well-fitted kitchen, a utility room and cloakroom. A turning timber staircase leads up to two en suite spacious bedrooms, both of equal size.
