An attractive, substantial five bedroom barn conversion with approximately 6.13 acres
Borolands Farm is a superb five bedroom barn conversion which has been beautifully converted to create a fantastic family home. No expense has been spared on the development of the house, which is evident in the quality of finish and attention to detail throughout, including features such as attractive stone floors and exposed timbers within the vaulted ceilings.
The main living space is found on the ground floor including the kitchen with a 4 door Aga, utility room, dining room, large garden room, sauna and the remarkable family room, which is over 58 feet in length and has lovely high vaulted-ceilings. There are three well-proportioned bedrooms on the ground floor, each with its own en suite shower room. The master bedroom also has the benefit of a dressing room. Adjacent to the back door there is a useful boot room and an additional wet room, as well as a cloakroom accessed via the entrance hall.
Upstairs there are two further bedrooms and a modern family bathroom, with an elegant freestanding bath. A galleried study area looks down to the dining room, creating a superb feature.
This property has 6.13 acres of land.
To the west of the house is a large barn currently housing 4 stables. A portal-framed agricultural outbuilding is to the north of the house, currently used as a tractor and hay barn.
