Property Details:

Currently operating as a holiday let and enjoying the ideal setting within the heart of a walkers paradise, is this sympathetically converted former barn within a charming development.

A gravelled courtyard provides parking in front of the property, with entrance into the hallway through a traditional wood front door.

The property is laid out in an upside down format, with two bedrooms and the family bathroom situated on the ground floor.

The master bedroom is a well decorated double room at the rear of the home, benefitting from characterful deep windowsills, commonly found in this style of property. The room also benefits from a range of fitted furniture including a dressing table.

Bedroom two is a further double room with fitted storage and a garden outlook through a pretty sash window.

Having recently been refitted in a modern style, the family bathroom includes a white three piece suite with a shower above the bath.

Taking the stairs to the first floor, you arrive in the open plan lounge/diner/kitchen. Exposed beams within a vaulted ceiling fitted with a Velux window accentuate the spacious and airy atmosphere in this area. The kitchen is sectioned off in a galley style and fitted with base units with integrated oven and hob incorporated into the design. Spaces have also been included to house a fridge, washing machine and slim line dishwasher. The lounge area features a wood burning stove, adding warmth and cosy cottage appeal. There is also a window seat taking advantage of the fabulous windowsills and pretty aspects.

The property also benefits from access to communal gardens, bbq & picnic area. The current owners have arranged for guests to use the adjoining leisure facilities including swimming pool, fully equipped gym and tennis court. Arrangements would need to be agreed direct with the owners.

This property must be viewed internally to be appreciated, and we would recommend that you do this at your earliest convenience.
