Why You'll Like It
This lovingly converted four bedroom character barn is a spacious home standing in grounds of over 2 acres and has a separate detached two-bedroom annexe. The land is divided into areas of attractive garden and a large paddock. There is also a double garage and plenty of driveway parking. The location is great being very close to Stithians Lake which is a haven for wildlife and much loved by water sports enthusiasts.
The property is found along a private lane shared with a couple of other properties and has two driveways, one for the main house and one for the annexe adding great flexibility to the property.
The property itself started as a former stone barn but was converted and greatly extended by the current owner.
Inside, the layout is ideally suited to modern family life with plenty of living space and generous bedrooms. The front door opens to a central hallway between the living and kitchen spaces, in the hall there is a cloakroom / WC and coat cupboard. The utility room is at one end of the ground floor next to the kitchen/ dining room. In the utility there is a sink and the oil fired boiler along with plenty of space for washing appliances, coats and boots etc. The kitchen has an attractive range of units with solid oak block work surfaces and a stainless steel Belfast style sink. There's a built under integrated fridge along with a wine cooler and the space has been designed to take a large range cooker. An up stand at the back of the work surface divides the kitchen space from the dining space and practical slate style flooring ties the space together. There is plenty of space for an American style fridge / freezer and the smooth ceiling has inset down lights.
The living room is an impressive size and has fantastic ceiling height with timber and steel beams. There's a cosy wood burning stove with feature steel flue and the space is connected to the garden via bi-folding doors. We particularly love the timber flooring in the living space which adds to the homely rustic feel. A corridor connects the space with two ground floor bedrooms, one of which is the primary suite which has a large en-suite wet room, French doors to the garden and a walk in wardrobe.
From the hallway there are stairs to the first floor where there are two generous bedrooms and the family bathroom which has a white suite with bath and separate shower enclosure. The first floor bedrooms look out across the garden and paddock to a far reaching rural view.
The annexe is a recently converted property which has modern two-bedroom accommodation with an open plan kitchen/ living/ dining space and a shower room.
Outside, there's a lovely lawned garden with mature planting. A separate sun deck is located between the barn and the annexe and is a lovely sheltered area to be enjoyed by the occupants of either building. A farm track separates the garden from the paddock and there is a large double garage (similar in size to the annexe) which offers further future potential. The grounds including driveways, gardens and the paddock are thought to be over two acres.
