Within the limitations of the barn's structure, the subdivision of the internal space has been well thought out and many of its original features have been retained. There is a wealth of beams, exposed brickwork and the generosity of space is one key advantage when acquiring a barn conversion. The carefully designed living spaces offer a large open plan kitchen/breakfast room, large dining room and an impressive voluminous double height sitting room. The spacious entrance hall with partially vaulted ceiling and tiled flooring leads directly ahead to the office, which features wood flooring and exposed beams and enjoys an outlook over the courtyard garden. Off to the left of the entrance hall is the large kitchen/breakfast room, which is well designed with a range of built-in cabinets and matching dresser, with granite worktops and butler sink. There is a large central island offering breakfast bar seating to one side. There is an integrated dishwasher, a range cooker, and a purpose-built space to accommodate an American style fridge freezer. The most coveted kitchen feature is probably the huge walk-in pantry. The utility room offers a sink and space and plumbing for laundry appliances. There are two walk-in cupboards providing the housing for boiler, pressurised water tank, water softener and manifolds for the underfloor heating. There is a downstairs cloakroom with WC and wash hand basin. The exceptionally large reception room (47'5 x 17'11) is accessed off the kitchen/breakfast room. The high vaulted ceiling gives a real sense of space and offers the perfect environment for entertaining.
