This delightful 2 bedroom single storey barn was skilfully converted by the present owner who created many character features including exposed beams, stained glass windows, ledged oak doors with suffolk latches, deep skirtings, oak or pine flooring to the principal rooms, a partly vaulted ceiling in the dining area and a cosy wood burning stove in the sitting room. Additionally there is scope to extend subject to the necessary consents. The building has had a varied history having been stabling for horses and lastly used for making fireworks. Set on gently rising ground with a secluded terrace to the front on different levels, the property also has the benefit of a detached double garage with parking in front plus extensive parking on the adjoining driveway beside the barn. The grounds further enhance the property being mainly laid to grass and offering a reasonable degree of privacy. From various vantage points in the garden there are far-reaching views over the surrounding farmland.
