Chilton Byre is an exposed red brick former cattle barn with an integrated 2 storey stone and cob hay barn built in the 1800's which has been sympathetically converted to a very high standard. The Byre is part of the redevelopment of Chilton Farm with just 4 very individual dwellings on site. The property is connected to the farm house (behind the stair well).

The barn has insulated floors, walls and ceilings which combined with underfloor heating and a Vaillant Air Source Heat Pump should make the barn very economical to run. The timber windows and doors are all double glazed with high spec security hardware and provide plenty of natural light. Lighting throughout uses low energy fittings.

The kitchen/ diner has a vaulted ceiling with exposed timber trusses and brick features. The graphite kitchen has an extensive range of floor and wall units with bleached oak effect worktops, a ceramic one and a half bowl sink and integrated dishwasher, fridge and freezer. Provision has been made for a range cooker and extractor, to give the new owner the flexibility to choose one they would like (NB there is no gas to the property). There are track lights in the kitchen area and under cupboard LED strips. The dining area includes an exposed brick wall with French doors leading to the patio and courtyard; large skylights are fitted over the dining area providing lots of natural light.

Off the kitchen is a boot room with a door to the courtyard, a separate toilet and a utility room which has cream floor and wall units, a sink and space for a washing machine and tumble dryer.

Contemporary oak doors with satin chrome furniture have been used throughout the barn.

The Playroom/ Snug has LED down lights and ample sockets. Technical provision has been made in the loft for a ceiling mounted projector if required. A loft hatch gives access to some useful storage space.

The Lounge has a vaulted ceiling with exposed timber A frame trusses and brick features. 2 sets of French doors lead on to the courtyard which combined with 4 large skylights create a very light and airy space. There are pendant lights and LED uplighters on the timber A frames as well as ample sockets. There are 4 full height recesses in the brickwork with LED strips above.

The corridor is lit by 2 sky lights and recessed LED downlighters which are controlled by movement sensors. Off the corridor are:

Bedroom 3 with an exposed brick pier, a large rustic beam and LED downlights. Provision has been made for a wall mounted TV as this room could be used as another day room.

Bedroom 4 with an exposed brick wall feature.

Bedroom 5

Bedroom 6

The main bathroom has a large, double ended bath, 1000mm quadrant shower, a concealed cistern toilet and feature basin above a run of base units. There is a large light well in addition to the LED downlighters. The floor has been finished with a slate effect tile.

The corridor continues round to the 2 storey section of the barn and opens onto a stair well flooded with natural light; off this are:

The plant room houses a 300ltr storage tank connected to the Vaillant Air Source Heat Pump (sited outside) providing hot water and central heating.

Understairs storage cupboard.

A large shower room with 1100 wide shower tray, electric power shower and built in basin cabinet & concealed cistern toilet. The floor is finished with oak plank effect ceramic tiles.

Bedroom 2 or possibly sitting room/ home office with door onto courtyard.

Upstairs is the master bedroom with vaulted ceiling and exposed timber beams.

Off this is an ensuite with a good sized shower, concealed cistern toilet and corner basin.

Outside there is a natural stone patio and gravelled courtyard as well as a large raised area which could be turfed or provides ample space for a flower garden. There is a further raised area in front of the garage which could be turfed or used as a vegetable patch. There is timber fencing to the perimeters with a 5 bar gate and side gate (cabling and ducts are in place to allow for electrification if required). Access from the road is via a shared drive.

The large double garage and workshop has an electrically operated roller shutter door with a side access door and a double glazed window. The garage has it's own power supply and water feed. The space above the garage is a designated bat loft (currently unoccupied).

The barn is serviced by a bio-digester tank which needs annual maintenance.

The conversion has been done to meet the strict requirements of Building Control and comes with a Royal Institute of Chartered Surveyors (RICS) 9 year warranty certificate of competence (having been independently monitored throughout the build process). The RICS certificate is recognised by most mortgage lenders as an equivalent to the NHBC warranty.

The property has been finished with bare concrete floors to allow the purchaser a free hand in the design and mix of floor coverings. The underfloor heating system works particularly well with ceramic tiled floors but there are many vinyl floor tiles and planks that could be fitted; low tog carpets are a good option as are engineered wooden floors although both slightly reduce thermal efficiency. The seller will make every effort to accommodate fitters between exchange and completion to help enable the purchaser to move straight in upo completion. Subject to contract the seller is offering a ten thousand pound incentive for early completion as a contribution towards flooring costs.
