Grade II Listed Barn

Listed Grade II, the Tithe Barn was meticulously and sympathetically converted about 15 years ago into this much loved family home by the current owners. The barn is of archaeological importance and the conversion retains the features and structure synonymous with the period, there is a date stone from 1729. The garden Granary is separately Grade II listed. Good sized accommodation is spread over two floors with very generous and spacious principal rooms. The layout can be seen on the floor plans. Suffice to say all the principal bedrooms have en-suite bath/shower rooms and the house provides for home-working and multi-generational living. The kitchen is a large family, live/eat/cook space in the heart of the house. There is Lutron lighting and a centralised music system to the principal rooms and the Cinema has sound-proofing and an audio visual system. The house and annexe are underfloor heated via a ground source heat pump (bathrooms electric underfloor); other features include a water softener, some rainwater harvesting and air-conditioning to four of the bedrooms, the annexe sitting room and cinema room.

This property has 1.15 acres of land.

The house is approached via electrically operated gated gravel drive, there is plenty of parking and a substantial four bay Oak framed garage. The garden immediately adjacent to the house has pretty raised beds and various outside sitting/entertaining areas. The garden beyond is mostly lain to lawn and enjoys wonderful views of the surrounding countryside and the village.
