Bedrooms: 7

A wonderful converted barn with an attached cottage, 0.7 acres of gardens and a studio above a double garage. Stunning open plan living space, up to 7 bedrooms and 5 bathrooms. Gorgeous rural setting with far-reaching views. EPC Band D.

THE PROPERTY

Grand Design is the phrase that naturally comes to mind upon arriving at May Farm Barns. The creative vision with which this property was converted from a former cider barn is abundantly obvious, yet it remains clear to see that an eye for the practical, down-to-earth elements required to make a house into a home was also in evidence during the creation of this incredible residence. The result is an expansive and elegant home quite unlike any other, which offers enormous comfort and convenience with great versatility in the accommodation to ensure that a fantastic rural lifestyle can be achieved whatever the needs of an individual may be. As can be expected in this upper echelon of the property market, high quality materials have been used throughout, complemented by a fresh, neutral scheme of decoration.

The centrepiece of the property is a wonderful open-plan living space which sets an appealing environment for both family enjoyment as well as for entertaining. The use of areas within this capacious room for sitting, dining or cooking is delightfully clear, creating a sense of smoothly flowing openness without compromising the atmosphere of great comfort and tranquility experienced throughout the house, with many windows and glass doors ensuring that the room is constantly filled with natural light. Situated at mezzanine level above the rest of the open plan living space, the drawing room is the ultimate environment in which to unwind with comfort in every season accounted for; a bridge leads to a door directly to the garden to provide a seamless transition of indoor/outdoor living during summer months, whilst a fireplace with an inset log burner helps to ensure the warmest of welcomes when winter sets in. In short, this remarkable room is a perfect setting for any occasion at any time of day or year.

The accommodation within is highly flexible and can easily be adapted to suit a variety of needs. For those hoping to generate an income or accommodate dependent relatives and extended family, the property can be used as a 4 bedroom main house with an attached 2 bedroom cottage and a self contained studio annexe, with independent access available to both the cottage and annexe as well as doors connecting to the house. Alternatively the property can be used in it's entirety as a 7 bedroom, 5 bathroom home for the larger or growing family, or there is the opportunity to use the potential studio room above the garage as an office for those working from home.

Another highly desirable feature of the property is the bedroom accommodation, particularly the master and second bedrooms. Both enjoying elevated positions within the house, these bedrooms both have delightful, far-reaching country views and benefit from en suite bathrooms. Domestically the property is served by all the usual modern appointments; the kitchen area is fitted with quality contemporary units beneath a granite work surface, and cooking facilities include an AGA as well as an electric oven and hob. The kitchen is serviced by a useful utility room where there is plumbing for a washing machine and ample cupboard space, and the cottage benefits from it's own fully fitted kitchen. Storage is abundant throughout with a dressing room adjacent to the master bedroom and built in wardrobes in the other three bedrooms found in the main house.

OUTSIDE

The property enjoys just over 0.7 of an acre of established, largely level grounds. The gardens are primarily laid to smooth lawn, interspersed with mature shrubs and trees. With a sunny aspect, excuses to spend time out of doors are abundant with a multitude of opportunities to relax, dine and entertain al fresco, particularly in the sunken courtyard which is almost Mediterranean in feel and from which several doors lead directly into the open plan living room. Those with green fingers will enjoy the year-round interest provided by the variety of plant life established here, whereas those who prefer to relax outside will appreciate the easily maintained specification to which the garden was created.

The property is approached from the road via a gated gravel driveway which sweeps around to the back of the house and culminated in a parking and turning area for several vehicle, with an off-shoot to separate parking area for the cottage. From the main parking area two sets of double wooden doors lead into the garage.
