Reception Rooms: 3
West Barn forms half of an historic tithe barn that was sympathetically converted in 1980. It is set in the most idyllic and secluded location, with an approach through lovely gardens, and enjoys stunning views across the water meadows. With high ceilings and well-proportioned rooms on the ground floor, the property would suit those who enjoy entertaining on a grand scale.
The heavy front door opens to an amazing reception hall with flagstone flooring, which leads through to the huge kitchen/breakfast room, with hand-built units installed only a year ago, featuring a large AGA, space for a long table and doors opening to the garden. Across the hall, double doors open to the ‘baronial’ feeling dining room, with its enormous reclaimed stone fireplace. Further along the hall is the library, with bespoke wall-to-wall bookcases and wood burning stove. Next door is the sizeable drawing room with doors to the garden and another wood-burning stove. A spiral staircase leads upstairs, where there is a long landing with storage cupboards built in. The principal bedroom has its own en-suite shower room as well as good storage. There is a second double bedroom as well as two other bedrooms and a bathroom.
Outside, the garden is secluded and enjoys a southerly facing aspect and is stocked with a selection of fruit trees and borders. Doors from the house open to a long terrace stretching the length of the house, with two seating areas and a pond with water feature. An old stable block is waiting to be revitalised and turned into additional accommodation possibly, and the amazing garage measures 37 feet across, and would accommodate four vehicles with ease.
