Property Snapshot

The property is approached via a long sweeping gravelled driveway, which also services the neighbouring farmhouse.

The driveway leads into a rather wonderful private courtyard with a lovely sheltered seating area along with a range of useful outbuildings.

A glazed door from the courtyard provides one of two access points into the property and leads into a spacious rear hallway with flagstone flooring and exposed beams. Doors lead off this beautiful hallway into the kitchen, utility, WC and living room.


Kitchen
The family kitchen is light and airy and features a corner breakfast area, central island with granite top, matching wall and base units, an AGA, integrated oven and fridge, stone flooring, a useful pantry and two large Velux style skylights.

There is a separate utility and boot room, the former having stone flooring, wall and base units plus space/plumbing for appliances.


Living room
The splendid main living room has a real sense of grandeur, featuring the most magnificent vaulted ceiling and a spiral staircase leading to a wonderful mezzanine section, which is ideal as a study or a library.

A delightful inglenook fireplace is the centrepiece of the room and houses a wood-burning stove, whilst a huge floor to ceiling window ensures this is a beautifully bright room.

The room also benefits from electric under floor heating and two built in display cabinets either side of the inglenook fireplace.


Accessed via a second entrance, another wing of the barn contains three of the five bedrooms and a bathroom along with additional living accommodation.

This second entrance gives way to a fantastic reception hall which is incredibly spacious and light, with stairs rising to the three-storey section of the barn and doors leading to the adjoining snug.

The snug is an excellent second sitting room which has an impressive inglenook fireplace with accompanying wood burner, high vaulted ceiling and beams, two Velux windows and a door leading to an inner hallway.

The inner hallway accesses two double bedrooms, both with exposed beams and one with a light and airy en suite. The en suite comprises a tiled shower cubicle, pedestal wash basin, low level WC and Velux skylight.

One of the two family bathrooms is also located on the ground floor and features down lighters, a high ceiling, panelled bath, wood panelling, pedestal wash basin and useful overhead storage.

A third double bedroom can also be found on the ground floor which features two sets of double wardrobes, exposed beams and a nice high ceiling.


First floor
Stairs rise from the reception hall to the three-storey section of barn, which has on the first floor a useful study, landing or library featuring a double airing cupboard and doors leading to a shower room and dressing area.

The shower room features a tiled shower cubicle, down lighters and a chrome radiator. Fitted furniture incorporates a wash basin and low-level WC with hidden cistern.


The second floor
On the second floor of this section is a wonderful double bedroom which is full of charm and character. With windows on each of the four aspects, this room is full of natural light and enjoys views of the property’s extensive gardens and grounds on all sides.


Master bedroom suite
The master suite of Sandstone Barn is tucked away within a quiet, self-contained corner of the property. Accessed via stairs rising from the rear hallway, the bedroom is an incredibly light and airy double room with a large Velux window, exposed beams and down lighters.

French doors lead out on to a beautiful section of rear garden complete with decking and ornamental pond, a stunning place to sit and enjoy a morning coffee.

The master bedroom also benefits from this stylish en suite, fitted with ‘Heritage’ fitments that include a vanity unit, WC with hidden cistern, a bath, a walk-in shower, down lighters and a chrome radiator.
A large Velux window ensures this well appointed and luxurious bathroom is flooded with natural light.


Gardens and grounds
Beautifully planted and maintained gardens of approximately 1.16 acres complete this absolutely amazing property with far-reaching views of the surrounding countryside enjoyed from the upper lawns.

Directly to the rear of the barn is a stunning section of landscaped garden packed with an array of beautiful perennials and featuring a raised decking area with an ornamental pond and waterfall.

Steps lead down from the decking to a secluded, gravelled seating area where a wooden summerhouse on a raised deck has great views of the garden.

At the top of the extensive lawns, dramatic views of the surrounding countryside and the
Witley hills in the distance can be enjoyed.


Services
The property benefits from mains electricity, water and gas connections, is connected to Broadband and all the windows are double glazed.
