An impressive period barn conversion surrounded by a stunning rural landscape with no near neighbour

Low Farm is an impressive 18th century converted barn that was rebuilt in 2008 and enjoys a superb countryside position with no near neighbours. Internally the property offers beautifully appointed accommodation with exposed timber beams alongside understated décor and high-quality ecological modern fittings throughout, including underfloor heating, supplementary air source heating and cooling units and a solar heated water system.

Most of the living accommodation is arranged across the ground level, with the main reception room being the 36ft sitting room with its triple aspect, oak flooring, woodburning stove and stunning double-height vaulted ceiling. There is also a 42ft open-plan kitchen, dining area and sitting area with a Travertine limestone floor and two sets of French doors opening onto the rear southwest facing terrace. The kitchen itself has handmade Ash units, recycled glass worktops, low-level LED lighting, a central island and a stainless steel Lacanche LPG range cooker and extractor. The adjoining wine cellar and utility room provide further storage and space for appliances. Additionally, there is a comfortable snug and a study, which could be used as a guest bedroom if required.

The principal bedroom is located on the first floor and is accessed via its own staircase, which leads to a galleried landing overlooking the sitting room and includes a library area. The principal bedroom has extensive fitted storage and WC facilities. Two further bedrooms are located on the ground floor. One is en suite, while the third bedroom has a useful mezzanine level. There are two further shower rooms, both of which are on the ground floor.

This property has 0.8 acres of land.


At the front of the property, a five-bar electric wooden gate opens onto a large gravel driveway with plenty of parking space for residents and guests alike. There is also a detached double garage with electric doors, electric car charger, garden store and gardener’s WC, and self-contained annexe above. The annexe has an open-plan bedroom and sitting room, a separate shower room, as well as underfloor heating. The gardens and grounds include a pond at the front, while to the sides and rear there are areas of lawn and established shrubs and hedgerow. The rear courtyard area offers space for al fresco dining, a feature pond and elegant box hedging. There is also a vegetable garden with gravel pathways, raised sleeper beds and a greenhouse, compost bins as well as further garden storage and an underground 9000 litre rainwater collection and storage system.
