The property was converted in 2019 by the current owners, and enjoys the mod-cons that one would associate with a contemporary barn conversion, such as under floor heating throughout, LED lighting, large stone flagged floors, anthracite grey aluminium double glazing, bi-fold doors to the patio, matching coloured slate effect roof, vertical timber cladding, mainly vaulted roof spaces and oak doors.
The design is very elegant and simple, yet maximises the space available, whilst still retaining options for a fourth bedroom if required.
One enters via a glass front door to an entrance lobby, with an oak door to the WC to one side, comprising a WC, basin, cupboard and window to side.
Double glass and oak doors, with a glass panel above, lead into a large, central hallway, with inset wall lighting and high level velux windows allowing ample light in. There are seveal oak doorways to the three bedrooms, a jack and jill bathroom and a store cupboard, plus glass and oak doors to the open plan living area.
The open plan area forms three distinct spaces, linked via the stone flooring and open ceilings, the sitting room area is at one end and has a TV space, plus access to the bi-fold doors to the rear patio.
The kitchen area is at the other end of the space, comprising a range of 'Latte' coloured, gloss fronted cupboards and drawers, with a large central island, housing more appliances and cupboard spaces, plus the hob and sink within the white Quartz worktops. The large wall of cupboards houses a fridge, freezer and dishwasher, plus larder cupboards and storage.
Between these two areas is space for a dining table and chairs, forming the dining area, again with bi-fold doors to the rear patio.
A useful utility room is accessed from the kitchen, with its own external door and similar cupboards forming storage, plus an inset sink and space for washing machine and tumble dryer.
The main bedroom is also a rear-facing room, with double windows overlooking the patio to the fields beyond. It is vaulted, with a wide opening to a dressing area, complete with fitted hanging and shelving units, plus a door to the en-suite, comprising a bath, separate shower, WC and his and hers basins, heated towel rail, window to front and tiled walls and floor.
The second bedroom is a front facing room, with a walk-in wardrobe and a door to an en-suite shower room, comprising a shower, WC and basin atop a vanity unit, tiled walls and floor, window to front and heated towel rail.
The third bedroom is another double, with a window to front plus a pocket door to the en-suite, providing a shower, separate bath, WC and basin, window to front, heated towel rail and tiled walls and floor. There is also a further oak door to the hallway.
Outside, from the road is a part shared driveway, leading to a private driveway with an electric rolling gate. to the front of the property is a sand school/menage and a lit parking area, with the remaining parking area being behind the house.
The rear gardens are fence enclosed, with the aforementioned expanse of paved patio, complete with an area of decking and a raised fish pond. The patio provides an open vista over the level rear garden with a small flower bed and the paddocks beyond.
On the opposite side of the driveway is a small lockable store, plus a large open machine store, with a loft storage area and a separate workshop. Beyond are the stables, comprising three stables, a feed room and a tack room, with water and power supplies to both outbuildings.
