A meticulously maintained, stylishly appointed barn conversion with a magnificent double-storey main living space in a tucked-away location.
The property is at the end of a row of three thatched houses that run between Old North Road and Nightingale Close. Originally converted and extended from a handsome timber barn in the mid-1990s it has been carefully renovated and improved by the current owner into an absolutely enchanting house.
The fantastic main living room occupies the two-storey part of the property and provides a space that is at once both dramatic and comfortable, with a wood-burning stove, handsome timbers and tall glazing opening south on to the garden. There is a mezzanine study at one end with the superbly refitted kitchen tucked beneath with quality cabinetry, Corian worksurfaces and built-in appliances. The bedroom wing is single storey and also faces south on to the garden with a bathroom, and two double bedrooms including a generous master room with built in wardrobes and doors opening on to the garden.
The secluded garden was professionally landscaped earlier this year including paved terraces, decking, neat lawns and shrub beds. There is a hot tub within a timber house and a pedestrian door into a double garage which has two parking spaces in front.
