Perry barn has been beautifully and sympathetically converted by the current owners with many unique features, including the impressive double height entrance hall and exposed oak beams. The layout of the home has been cleverly thought out; with large openings on the ground floor giving an open plan feel, whilst still defining the role of each room. The welcoming reception hall with practical stone flooring is flooded with natural light through the large windows to the front and rear. The bespoke spiral staircase is an impressive statement at the heart of the home. To the rear of the entrance hall, the dining hall is a wonderful area for family gatherings.
A well-proportioned living room is located to the left of the hall with beautiful oak flooring and windows overlooking the front and rear of the property. To the right of the hall is a cosy family room with steps that lead you down to the fantastic family kitchen. The kitchen is well appointed and finished to an extremely high specification with granite worktops and integrated appliances. The exposed beams in the vaulted ceiling sit beautifully next to the modern fittings. Natural light is in abundance from the roof lights and large floor to ceiling windows overlooking the front of the property. Beyond the kitchen is an entrance lobby with handy WC and utility room plus a ground floor office/bedroom. The workshop offers the potential for auxiliary accommodation if required as has plumbing etc already installed.
On the first floor, the gallery landing offers a wonderful space for reading and relaxation with stunning views over gardens and farmland. The two guest bedrooms are both of a good size with the benefit of fitted wardrobes and rural views. The impressive master suite has a beautiful pitched roof with exposed oak beams. The room enjoys a luxury en-suite shower room plus dressing room. To complete the first floor accommodation, there is a stunning family bathroom with freestanding bath, separate shower enclosure and feature mood lighting system.
The property is extremely energy efficient with the benefit of under floor heating and solar panels.

The front garden has a sunny patio area and also boasts a prolific magnolia tree and a red robin amongst other established trees all nestled on a front lawn that is a haven for an array of garden birds. There is an additional front lawn in front of the workshop.
