Property description



This recently converted barn has been beautifully designed to offer spacious, bright versatile living space, in excess of 2,400 sq ft. This fabulous home is well-appointed throughout and finished to a very high standard with underfloor heating, solid oak floor, doors and glass and oak stairways. A particular feature of the property is the floor to ceiling windows in the main reception room.

The Setting

Set back from a quiet country lane surrounded by open countryside, The Barn sits in a rural setting close to the pretty village of High Easter, which is in close proximity to Ongar, Great Dunmow, and Felsted, providing a good selection of shops, public houses, restaurants and Felsted private school, and additional schools for all ages. The larger towns of Bishop s Stortford and Chelmsford are within a half hour drive of the property and provide a more comprehensive range of shops, educational and recreational facilities. Both towns have mainline railway stations providing commuter links into Cambridge and London.

The Accommodation

A solid wood front door opens into the hallway with stone flooring and double doors leading into the well-appointed kitchen/breakfast room, with a good range of eye and base level contemporary units, Bosch dual oven, and integrated Bosch appliances. There is a stone tiled floor with underfloor heating, and access to utility room and downstairs w/c. A half glazed solid wood door opens from the kitchen onto the rear garden, and the feature floor to ceiling windows look out onto the driveway and front lawns. From the hallway, stairs rise to the stunning vaulted main reception room with solid oak flooring with under floor heating, slate tiled open feature fire place and magnificent wall to ceiling feature windows to the front and rear of the property. There are doors leading from the reception room to two further rooms, one with an en-suite bathroom which would make a lovely guest suite. Stairs rise from the main reception room to the spacious bright galleried landing with oak newel posts and glazed panels overlooking the downstairs living space. Oak doors lead off the landing to the master bedroom with en-suite shower room and 2 further double bedrooms, all with far reaching views across open countryside and beyond. The family bathroom completes this floor.

Outside

The Barn is approached through double electrically operated security gates onto an attractive gravel driveway which leads to the front of the property and the detached garage with workshop. There is ample parking and a lovely paved sun-trap patio to the side of the property. The remainder of the grounds are laid mainly to lawn with mature hedgerows backing onto open farmland to the rear and there is a separate paddock area to one side.

Services

Private drainage, oil-fired central heating, water and electricity are connected.
