Seller insight' Barns Farm was built in 1815, and we moved into the house in 2002. We fell in love with the house and grounds before we even entered the building, over the next four years we transformed the inside into the beautiful family home it is now. Everything has been made to measure using the finest materials and it has been a privilege to live in this very special home. What would we miss if we leave? Everything.
