NO ONWARD CHAIN - A particularly handsome converted field barn in approximately one acre, occupying an idyllic and peaceful setting within walking distance of village amenities.

Once belonging to the neighbouring Pound Farm, Higher Barn was converted in 2004 to provide a particularly spacious and characterful country home. The front elevation is symmetrical with arrow slits and wide openings providing French doors out to the garden. The accommodation is well appointed with natural oak doors and windows, French Pierre de Bourgogne limestone floors and beautifully restored original timbers. It is in contemporary style with good energy saving features including underfloor heating throughout, insulated cavity walls and a heat recovery ventilation system.

A recessed porch, on the south side of the house, leads into the reception hall with a handsome turning oak staircase and doors leading to the study with a large, recessed storage cupboard, cloakroom with WC and wash hand basin and, with modification, could also accommodate a shower. There is also a utility / drying room on the ground floor with a Grant oil-fired boiler. An inner hall leads to the sitting room, which is a good size, particularly light with a west facing window and a north facing set of French doors leading out onto the terrace. A unique fireplace, inspired by a Canadian log cabin, has a dry-stone chimney breast and raised open slate hearth. An oak open glazed screen with archway leads into the dining room with arrow slits and glazed screen into the hall and double doors leading into the beautifully fitted Ralph Winter kitchen with a range of contemporary style German made cabinets installed in 2018. There are excellent floor and wall mounted cupboards, an inset large composite sink and a central island with a quartz work surface and an inset two ring induction hob. The electric powered AGA has an adjoining module with a four-ring hob. A set of French doors leads out into the garden as well as a wide opening leading into a particularly bright and sunny garden room with French doors out onto the terrace. The turning oak staircase leads to the galleried landing with beautifully restored roof timbers and a range of linen cupboards. The principal bedroom has a high vaulted ceiling with exposed timbers, dual aspect windows enjoying lovely views, a walk in dressing room and a recently re-fitted en suite shower room with a wide shower, rainfall shower head, contemporary wash basin with drawers below and a wall-mounted WC. There is also an en suite guest bedroom with views over the fields that shares a 'Jack and Jill' shower room with one of the two further double bedrooms as well as an additional single bedroom. The family bathroom includes a WC, wash basin with cupboard below, panelled bath and heated towel rail.
