Guide price

Bedrooms: 4
A spacious and beautifully presented detached barn conversion, offering versatile accommodation including four bedrooms and three bathrooms. Set within its own walled plot, the property has a superb south-facing garden with a covered outdoor dining area and a gated driveway providing ample parking. This impressive single-storey property will suit a wide range of purchasers and is available with no onward chain. EPC rating D.

A door to the front of the property opens into an entrance hall, which has an oak floor and panelling, and a built-in cupboard housing the boiler for the gas-fired central heating (underfloor). An opening then leads through to the superb kitchen/dining room, which is finely proportioned with a fabulous vaulted ceiling, continued throughout other rooms in the property, too.

The kitchen has been fitted with bespoke oak-framed floor units, in an attractive, rustic style, with areas of shelving, granite work surfaces and a central island. In addition, the kitchen has a tiled floor, offers plenty of space for a large dining table, and includes a freestanding gas-fired range cooker, a dishwasher and an 'American style' fridge/freezer (all untested). Located off the kitchen is a pantry and a useful boot room, which has external access to the parking area at the rear. Incorporated within the boot room are two cupboards, one with plumbing and space for a washing machine and tumble drier, and the other for storage.

The sitting room is a comfortable reception room, also with a vaulted ceiling and a stone fireplace with a unique crooked brick flue above. Inset within the fireplace is a Jetmaster stove, providing a lovely focal point for those colder evenings. Whilst carpeted, there is an oak floor beneath, which could be exposed if preferred. French doors then open out from the sitting room to the sunny garden.

A door from the sitting room continues into an inner hall, which gives access to two of the bedrooms; one with a mezzanine area and both having French doors to the garden. The hall also leads to the family bathroom, serving the eastern wing of the property. Accessed via the kitchen/dining room, is a study or reading area, which in turn continues into a further hallway. This section of the barn conversion opens into a large modern shower room and two more double bedrooms, including a wonderful Master bedroom at one end. This spacious room has a large feature window to the southern side and an additional set of French doors to the garden. Within the Master bedroom are a series of fitted wardrobes, an oak floor and a door through to an en-suite shower room with a large shower cubicle.


Entered initially via an electric-gated drive, the property has a right of access across, which leads into its own private gated parking area. The entire plot is enclosed, mostly by beautiful stone walling, offering privacy and indeed safety for children and pets. The tarmac parking area can accommodate numerous vehicles and has been finished with mature borders, a lawn and a pathway to the aforementioned boot room. On the other side of the property, the main garden is generous in size and mainly laid to lawn, with a crazy-paving path around the outside, giving access to the various entrances into this individual home. The garden incorporates a section of stone chippings and a designated seating area in one corner, enjoying plenty of sunshine throughout the day. Also located in the garden is an excellent, outdoor dining area, fully covered by a pitched tiled roof, providing shade and shelter. Laid to decking, the dining area is perfect for entertaining or relaxing and includes a stone-built barbeque.

A separate coded and gated access (on foot only) is situated to one side of the property and entered from the roadside. Owned by the neighbouring farmhouse, the property will have a right of way to read the meters and maintain the side area of the dwelling.

The neighbouring barn is utilised as a holiday let. Permission has been sought for two further attractive 'barn style' single-storey holiday lets close by. Once completed, the three holiday properties will share the initial electric-gated entranceway noted above. This will not impact the access or parking at Old Parlour Barn, which is separate and private from the property.
