This stunning, attached barn conversion, one of six, lies in the original farmyard of Garlandhayes Farm and enjoys an enviable outlook over rolling pasture, grazed by Highland cattle and farmed deer. Our client has completely refurbished the accommodation in the last year and it is immaculately presented in a very attractive and contemporary style, ready to occupy without lifting a single paint brush!
The main approach to the accommodation tends to be from the parking area and rear garden, giving access to the garden room. This versatile room adds a quite unique and generous extra dimension to the living space, perfect for both dining and relaxing, whilst enjoying the sunny aspect and rural view.
The adjoining kitchen/dining room has been beautifully fitted with a bespoke kitchen, designed by our client, and including plenty of cupboard storage, ample 'Corian' work surface, with a dining bar for four people, and a full range of quality integral appliances.
An open doorway leads through to the sitting room, with a contemporary wood burner upon a slate hearth as a focal point, ideal for the longer winter evenings. There is also underfloor heating and this extends throughout the original ground floor of the barn, with radiators heating the more recently built garden room.
From the courtyard, the 'official' front door leads into the entrance hall with attractive slate tiled flooring and the cloak room to one side. Beyond there is the downstairs, fourth bedroom, ideal for guests or it could be used as a large home office, if required.
Upstairs, there are three more bedrooms, two of which are particularly large, including the principal room which is open plan through to the en suite shower room, with an attractive oak screen. This is fitted in a contemporary style with a white suite and black fitments, including a large shower cubicle and heated towel rail. Some of the bedrooms have inlaid ceiling beams, from the original barn conversion, enhancing the appeal and character of the accommodation. The family bathroom is fitted with a white suite, including a shower over the bath, with a glazed screen.
On approach to the barn, wooden gates lead to an enclosed, brick paved parking area and a short distance from the property, there is additional residents' parking, also suitable for visitors.
The garden lies to the rear of the property and is a picture, with a lovely array of flowers and shrub borders and raised beds around the lawn, with a paved sitting area, nicely tucked away and a real suntrap. At the end of the garden room, and also accessible from the garden, there is a very useful boot room, with cupboards, ideal for wellies and coats.
