THREE STUNNING STONE BARNS CONVERTED TO A VERY HIGH STANDARD AND OFFERING FLEXIBLE ACCOMMODATION IN AN ATTRACTIVE RURAL SETTING The sale offers a rare opportunity to acquire a multi-generational lifestyle property in a rural setting with immediate access to open countryside. The attractive stone barns, centred around two enclosed courtyards, were sympathetically converted by the current owners in 2005. Great attention to detail went into the conversion to maintain the character and history of the barns, yet provide for modern living requirements and feature flagstone and oak flooring with underfloor heating. Presently the barns are divided into three separate residential units and all enjoy their own privacy. The main house lies in the middle and offers over 7,100 sq. ft. of accommodation and in part, could easily provide a guest wing/separate annexe if required. Lying either side are two further barns offering self- contained accommodation either for a dependant relative or as investment opportunities. The two barns currently generate a rental income of just under £40,000 per annum. The barns are enclosed within a ring fence affording privacy and protection and within the grounds, sits a steel portal framed agricultural barn offering great potential whether for running a business from, storage of classic cars or indeed for conversion, subject to obtaining the relevant planning consents. A viewing is highly recommended as one is unable to fully appreciate all on offer without making the commitment to step over the threshold. THE MAIN HOUSE Lying in the middle with front door opening into vaulted reception hall with guest wing/treatment rooms to the right and vaulted games/cinema room to the left with views over and direct access to, inner courtyard garden. Running through the middle is a stunning 18 metre long vaulted family dining room ideally suited for large entertaining with glazed brick archways overlooking and accessing the south west facing courtyard offering the perfect environment to unwind, relax and entertain. Above the dining area is a glazed roof allowing natural light to flood in and a wide open archway at far end leads through to the stunning exposed beamed kitchen/breakfast room with flagstone floor. The bespoke fitted kitchen is in oak with large central island unit with black granite work surface, wooden breakfast bar and separate chopping/preparation surface. Within the room are matching oak dressers and cupboard along with bench seating. A black four ovened Aga provides the cooking facilities supported by a two ring Miele induction hob. The Miele dishwasher is integral and there is a recess for microwave. Leading through to the utility room is a walk-in larder fridge along with boot room and beyond is the cosy snug with wood burner and rear staircase. An archway off the kitchen reveals the inner hall with wide oak staircase rising to first floor galleried landing and lying beyond is the main sitting room with views over the walled courtyard garden and open countryside. The focal point of the room is the brick fireplace housing wood burner with oak book/display shelving to one side. The inner hall also offers access to cloakroom and rear hall with door to rear garden and garaging. The boot room opens onto gravelled courtyard and at the far end is the home office with en suite shower room and stairs in the corner lead up to another flexible room either providing additional bedroom, further office space or gym. FIRST FLOOR The vaulted galleried landing is impressive as is the vaulted master suite with built-in storage/dressing area and well appointed and part stone tiled bathroom with separate shower. Four further double bedrooms sit on this floor with two having mezzanine areas and served by a family bathroom and separate shower room. EAST BARN Two storied with parking to front and providing three reception rooms along with kitchen/breakfast room and utility room/cloakroom on the ground floor with three bedrooms and family bathroom on the first floor. The barn currently benefits from a formal garden on its western side and to the north is a further enclosed garden with vehicular access to double garage. WEST ANNEXE Accessed via a block paved path, the West Annexe is all on one level with vaulted sitting room lying in the middle flanked either side by two double bedroom suites with well equipped and fitted kitchen/breakfast room lying at the far end with utility room in one corner. Oil fired Rayburn provides for cooking along with heating the hot water and central heating. AGRICULTURAL BARN Lying immediately off the drive and set back is the five bay steel portal frame barn with lean-toos on either side with the majority benefitting from a concrete floor. Internally there are two workshop areas along with mezzanine storage areas and in one of the lean-toos are two wooden loose boxes. OUTSIDE The property is approached over Church Lane which turns into a bridleway and private lane leading up to New Lodge Farm and serves two other residential properties and a commercial farm. A four bar electric gate opens onto the private gravel drive sweeping past and around all three barns allowing access to the garaging for five vehicles. The main gardens lie within the two inner courtyards and running along the rear of the main barn is a further enclosed garden laid to lawn and offering a blank canvas.
