Believed to date back to the 1600’s, Farriers Barn was converted to a family home in 2007. The striking, double height glazed windows and door welcomes you to the home and allows the natural light to pour in to the entrance hall. The entrance hall is a magnificent space with vaulted ceiling, which beautifully displays the original oak beams. From the hall, doors lead off to the ground floor accommodation and an iron and timber spiral staircase takes you to the gallery landing on the first floor.
To the right of the entrance hall is the open-plan, family kitchen. The space has been cleverly designed to incorporate a state-of-the-art kitchen that sits beautifully next to the historic arrow slit windows. The large U-shaped kitchen with granite worktop, creates a wonderful social space, providing areas for cooking preparation and relaxed dining. Integrated appliances are neatly hidden away and include a fridge freezer, dishwasher, double oven, ceramic hob and inset stainless steel sink with mixer taps. From the dining area, French doors lead out to the decked patio.
At the centre of the home is the living room with steps leading to the full width French doors overlooking the rear garden. To the left of the hallway is a large reception room (currently used as home office) with a window overlooking the rear garden and the character arrow slit windows. This space perfectly lends itself to those working from home and need private access with French doors leading out to the side of the property. This area of the home incorporates the utility room with a range of base and wall mounted cupboards, plumbing for a washing machine and tumble dryer and a 1 ½ bowl sink unit. To complete the ground floor is a cloak room with WC and wash hand basin.
The gallery landing with iron balustrade offers a wonderful view over the double height entrance hall. To the left of the landing is a games room with imposing oak beams and vaulted ceiling. This generous, multi-functional space features arrow slit windows and Velux windows.
The master bedroom sits at the heart of the first floor and beautifully demonstrates the character and charm of the barn with imposing oak beams and vaulted ceiling. Windows span the width of the room creating a lovely light space. There is ample room for bedroom furniture to include two large triple fitted wardrobes. A door leads through to a beautifully fitted en-suite shower room. The room incorporates a double shower enclosure, WC, vanity wash hand basin with storage mirror above and heated towel rail.
To the ‘west wing’ of the home are three good sized and immaculately presented bedrooms, all displaying the character of the building. The rooms are served by a modern family bathroom. The beautifully designed bathroom incorporates a built-in double shower, bath, vanity wash hand basin with storage mirror above, WC and heated towel rail.
To the front of the property is a large, gravelled in and out driveway, offering parking for several vehicles. The driveway is bordered with mature trees and shrubs and a gated side access leads around to the private rear garden. The rear garden is mainly laid to lawn with mature trees and shrubs and incorporates two decked patio areas which are ideal for alfresco dining. A large pergola offers a further area for entertaining.
