Character feel, yet perfect for modern living... A stunning barn conversion with deceptively spacious accommodation and outbuilding set in a convenient village location.
Converted almost 15 years ago from original farm outbuildings by the current owners, The Barn is a wonderful two bedroom bespoke barn conversion tucked away in the heart of the popular village of Felton. From the moment you walk from the private front courtyard garden through the 'barn style' entrance door into the sizeable entrance hallway, you realise that the project has been completed with an attention to detail rarely seen in a conversion. Everywhere you look there are wooden floors, exposed beams, stripped doors and stone walling, this gives a wonderful feeling of character, whilst also having the quality and lack of maintenance of a newer build. The Barn has practical and sizeable accommodation which briefly comprises; fantastic lounge with inglenook fireplace and double patio doors to the side garden, open plan access to a separate dining room area, fitted kitchen/breakfast room with space for a kitchen table, two double bedrooms (the master having en suite), and a family bathroom. Again, attention to detail on the conversion is fantastic, there is storage both in the main hallway and both of the bedrooms, and the property is gas centrally heated and double glazed throughout. The property is set in a deceptive plot, with the aforementioned courtyard gardens to the front perfect for that morning coffee. There is off street parking for numerous vehicles on the double gated gravel drive and further access from this area to the side gardens, which have an almost 'Secret Garden' feel, comprising a wonderful mix of paved, slate gravelled, planted pergola and decking areas perfect for a summer barbecue. If all of this were not enough, The Barn has a stone built outbuilding to the front which comprises a really good sized garage with separate workshop to the rear, fantastic for those who like to tinker, have a hobby or purely for storage.
What more could you ask for? A popular village location, great for the transport routes and ready for you to just move in and put your bags down. 'Character' is the buzz word! An early viewing will be essential.
Our vendor says... We have lived at the property for 14 years and bought it as a conversion project, the potential was fantastic and as a project it suited us down to the ground. We love the exposed beams and wood flooring, however although it is packed with character, it retains a modern layout. Real uniqueness with a wonderful village atmosphere.
We have noticed... 'The Barn' really is a stunner... A wonderful example of how to sympathetically convert farm buildings, retaining the aesthetic appeal of the original structure, whilst making it work for modern living. Once you are in the property you feel totally private and secluded, however, you are central to the village, just off the Green, and the transport routes and access to Bristol is superb. Must be seen internally... A real 'Tardis'!
