Especially as the current owners have carefully and lovingly converted and enhanced the property's interior with no expense seemingly being spared in order to create a truly luxurious country family residence. The majority of the fittings, bathrooms in addition to the sumptuous kitchen / breakfast room are by Neptune. Every oak door has been fastidiously hand crafted by a bespoke master carpenter with handmade period style hinges in addition to many of the oak frames and other interior oak finishing's.
In todays modern living styles, every part of the ground floor reception areas, are predominantly designed to be large open plan areas with the most stunning vaulted beamed ceilings towering above and resembling a magnificent ancient styled cathedral.
The whole of the ground floor has underfloor heating and two substantial sized impressive cast iron wood burners, one of which occupies a most wonderous bespoke stone inglenook. All the oak windows are of laminated oak and almost all enjoy stunning aspects of the adjoining countryside and beautiful rural views beyond.
Converted by a respected artisan builder, this magnificent grade II listed barn has been extensively insulated and high-quality materials were used throughout the construction process, include replacement exterior oak cladding.
The large detached heritage style outbuildings in addition to the attached annex are ideal subject to planning permission use and conversion into high yielding holiday letting units if required.
