Upper Barn is situated in the tiny Hamlet of Treguff, which is noted for its fine Elizabethan Manor House. Having being built by the present vendors The House was part of the Manor until the early 1990's. Today the Hamlet consists of just a few cottages and individual dwellings.
Upper Barn is a stylish conversion of two barns linked by a wide and impressive entrance hall. Built by the present vendors. The Grade II listed barn was acquired approximately eighteen years ago and has been sympathetically restored. The use of traditional materials with hardwood timber windows and doors, stone floors, deep window sills and the original exposed beams and roof trusses has created a very natural interior of formal and informal living space.
