Property description

Desmond Barn is a fantastic example of a barn conversion and has been refitted by the current owners to the very highest standard.
The property benefits from a large open plan living/dining area with vaulted ceiling, creating a spacious environment perfect for entertaining guests, an impressive kitchen/diner again with vaulted ceiling and a large breakfast island that is the heart of the home.
