A Grade II Listed Regency farmhouse, two holiday cottages and outbuildings, set in 61.79 acres.

The Barton is a lifestyle farm which includes a Grade II Listed Regency farmhouse, two substantial holiday cottages, an indoor swimming pool, a number of outbuildings and approximately 22.69 acres with lot 1. The entire accommodation is beautifully presented and the current owners have very successfully let the cottages to provide a good income. The outbuildings also provide potential for conversion into further holiday accommodation, subject to the purchaser pursuing the relevant planning consents, giving scope for expansion.

The farmhouse has been extensively improved during its current ownership and is a wonderful family home providing over 4,100 sq. ft. of living space. The Barton has retained many of its original period features and benefits from high ceilings, original fireplaces, shutters, well-proportioned rooms, large sash windows and cornicing. The kitchen/breakfast room is at the heart of the home, featuring a flagstone floor, bespoke fitted cabinets and an electric AGA. A large larder is adjacent, fitted with slate shelves. There are three very spacious reception rooms, including a dining room with a wood burner, a double aspect sitting room with another wood burner, and a family room with a large open fireplace and a flagstone floor. On the western side of the house, there is a utility room, shower room and study/bedroom seven. This part of the house has a separate entrance and could potentially be used as an annexe, if required.

Upstairs, there are six bedrooms, most with built-in storage and lovely countryside views. The large master bedroom has the benefit of a dressing room and an en suite shower room. Bedroom two has an en suite shower room, whilst the remaining bedrooms are serviced by a family bathroom. There is an extensive attic, providing excellent storage space.

The accommodation is presented to an exceptional standard, and provides approximately 2,382 sq. ft. of living space. There is an extremely spacious sitting room with a high vaulted ceiling, exposed beams, a wood burner and three sets of French doors leading outside. The kitchen/breakfast room is to the rear of the house, and is well-equipped with an electric oven, extractor fan and an adjacent pantry. Completing the ground floor is a double bedroom, shower room, utility room and cloakroom.

Upstairs, there is a mezzanine level over the sitting room which is currently used as snug, but could suit a variety of purposes. There are four well-proportioned bedrooms on the first floor, serviced by a family bathroom with a shower over the bath.

The Granary has a pleasant area of garden to the rear with a lawn and a patio which provides an excellent entertaining space.
