An impressive barn conversion combining period features and contemporary design.
Set within a beautiful walled garden, in a glorious rural position close to the vibrant village of Cranleigh, Rooks Barn has remained true to its original architectural character with elevations of red brick and timber cladding and mellow beams throughout. Internally, the vaulted ceiling, galleried landing, exposed oak beams and extensive use of glass create a light, bright and spacious atmosphere, accentuating the splendid architectural features. The property is entered via a double door from the courtyard, opening into the reception hallway, which in turn leads to the impressive reception area with brick and timber fireplace housing a wood burner. A further room is currently used as a family room, but could be a downstairs bedroom. The kitchen/breakfast room with vaulted ceiling is fitted with bespoke units, timber work surfaces, central island, an electric Aga and Sub Zero fridge, freezer and wine cooler. Three sets of double doors open out onto the terraced courtyard, making it ideal for alfresco entertainment.
All the first floor bedrooms (two of which are en- suite) lead from the galleried landing and have exceptional views over the Surrey Hills and surrounding countryside. To the front of the barn is a charming one bedroom cottage, which offers great potential, including staff accommodation and holiday lets. There is also a large barn style garage with a store room behind.
