Originally part of a larger farm, Elm Tree Barn was converted approx. 15 years ago, finished by the current owners and offers a fantastic chance to sample living in the countryside yet without being isolated. The stone barn is full of character and isn’t listed yet there are plenty of exposed materials including stone and timber to satisfy those with a love of older buildings. The fact it was relatively recently converted however, means there are all of the modern conveniences associated with a more modern building such as double glazing, central heating, good insulation and to top it off, being on a private water supply and drainage, the water bills are very low!
The accommodation is of a good size with a kitchen/diner at one end. The hallway gives access to the first floor as well as a WC and leads into the large living room with its feature brick fireplace with woodburning stove. Double doors then open into the study or dining room which can be closed off if desired. On the first floor, the ceilings are vaulted, providing a great feeling of space and light as well as the character this gives. The master bedroom feels light too and the exposed roof timbers give it a real wow factor. The en-suite to the master bedroom has been recently upgraded into a luxury shower room, befitting of the barn! There is a family bathroom and 3 further bedrooms on the first floor giving plenty of options for most.
Outside, there is an attached garden to the barn, a good size with a generous patio, lawn and raised decking area. The garden is full of colour and gives a beautiful space to relax and is safely enclosed for those with pets and children alike. Across the lane at the rear is a double open fronted carport and adjacent workshop with power. There is also an additional parking space to the side. Up some hidden steps next to the carport is the vegetable garden, with greenhouse, shed, water and raised beds. There are some lovely views from here and it borders onto the first of the paddocks, a one acre field with separate gate access for machinery or vehicles or horse trailer! Subject to permissions, it may be possible for a stable in the field which would be nice and easy to access from the main barn. A short walk down the access lane and there is a five bar gate to the second paddock, again of approx. 1 acre of level grazing. It is hedged and fenced and would suit many uses.
This is a fantastic property with lots to offer.
