Whether you need predominantly ground floor living or plenty of space for your family, this versatile barn conversion has lots of character and is tucked away in a convenient and popular village community. Particularly impressive is the living room with itsopen vaulted ceiling, overlooked by a Juliet balcony from the first floor accommodation which was converted some years ago into a very versatile living space with en-suite shower-room, and accessed via a timber spiral staircase from the hall. This space would be ideal for guests or older children. Currently there are two double bedrooms on the ground floor plus a former third bedroom that the current owners use as a Laundry Room (see agents notes). A conservatory overlooks the eastern end of the gardens, which not only consist of a lovely mature walled garden running the entire south side of the property but also of a further detached garden just a few metres away, beyond the single garage and extending to c. 1/10th of an acre, so plenty of space for running around or growing vegetables and the like should you be green-fingered. A rare opportunity to find such a characterful home that could see you through from family time to retirement. EPC Rating - N/A

The vendors have informed us that the developer of the barn arranged the conversion of the attic. Whilst records show that planning permission and listed buildings consent was sought, we have been unable to find any confirmation that building regulations approval was provided. The vendor is happy to provide any necessary indemnity policies relating to this and any other works that may have been arranged by the developer. A conservatory was erected to the barn shortly after its conversion approximately 20 years ago however building consent was not sought or obtained. Listed building consent is now granted to alter and replace the conservatory with a glazed extension under a dual pitched solid roof of natural slates with timber frame glazed windows and doors. Application number 18/01529/LBC.
