Property Summary

Where do we start...Well, this splendid property is a great mix of old, recent and new. "What do we mean?" we hear you cry. What was originally a bungalow with a barn is now a wonderfully spacious and characterful family home. The barn has been converted into modern and charming accommodation and neatly joins the original bungalow to create a property that is significant and genuinely rare. Overlooking its own private courtyard to the front this property delivers on outside space too as well as an oversized Garage or "man cave" and a further outbuilding. Might suit someone who fancies a hobby farm or those in need of significant parking. Back to the house though and with at least 5 bedrooms (2 with En–suites), three reception rooms, two further bathrooms and plenty of storage this cannot be dismissed without due consideration and that all important viewing. If you love all the charm of a barn conversion but still need more. This could be the property you've been looking for!
