Stunning two-bedroom period barn conversion in a rural location with impressive green credentials

The vendors bought the property in 2020 and have overseen its development of the property using a local builder and the very latest green/eco solutions with stunning results. From the drive are stone steps up to a covered porch which leads through to the entrance hall with coat and boot storage before entering the open plan kitchen/dining and reception room. This is a fantastic space with vaulted ceiling and exposed a-frame beams which were bespoke made for the barn. In the centre of the room is a clever room divide with inset double-sided wood burning stove separating the dining area from the reception/living room area. Off the dining area are bi-folding doors out to the terrace and garden beyond. Off to the side of the dining room is the kitchen. This has been beautifully designed with an abundance of storage to include both a larder cupboard and pantry/workstation cupboard. The worktops including the five-seater island are fitted with a stone effect composite that is heat resistant up to 300 degrees. The kitchen is fitted with integrated Neff appliances to include full size fridge, dishwasher, single oven, and microwave oven; there is also a boiling tap, a four-ring induction hob with integrated extractor fan and a small wine fridge. Off the kitchen is the utility room with plenty of storage cupboards and worktop areas and space for a full-size freezer, two washing machines and tumble dryer and doors to the control room for the heating and hot water.

Off the living area is the corridor leading to the bedrooms which also have the lovely double height ceilings with exposed a-frame. The guest room is a good size with built-in wardrobes and wooden herring bone flooring and across the corridor is the family bathroom with freestanding double-ended bath. At the end of the corridor is the principal bedroom/suite. A gorgeous room with herring bone wooden flooring, double doors out to a private terrace, dressing room area with built-in wardrobes and ensuite shower room. The ensuite has a large walk-in shower and double sink vanity unit.


The property is accessed off a very quiet lane via the spacious drive where there is plenty of parking for up to four cars plus space for turning. The bi-folding doors from the dining room open on to the main garden terrace with steps down to a further, more private terrace where the hot tub (available by separate negotiation) is located, before stepping down to the main garden. This is mainly laid to lawn with an established central flower bed beyond which is a further sun terrace. The lawn continues down to the river which forms the southern boundary. Off to the left of the main lawn is a well-established vegetable garden with several raised beds, large potting shed and greenhouse. At the rear of the house is a path that leads to a separate garden to the north of the property. There are steps down to a small private terrace with access to the principal bedroom and steps up to a more formal garden with a variety of well-established flower beds that leads up to the oak tree that denotes the northern boundary.

Green/Eco Credentials-

The property is run mainly off-grid. This winter will be the first full year of occupancy, so no current figures exist for the amount of additional electricity used from the grid.
The property has a Grant air to water high efficiency heat pump with a feed in tariff that is currently generating an income of approximately £1,000pa, and 10 solar panels. The combination of the heat pump and solar panels provides the property with hot water and underfloor heating throughout. In addition to this there is a battery storage system to store excess electricity on sunny days to support the supply for when less energy is being generated.

In addition to the above the property is also fitted with double glazing throughout and insulated to a high specification.
