SUMMARY

Steeped in history and BEAUTIFULLY APPOINTED throughout this spacious detached barn conversion with SEPARATE ANNEXE, stables and superb EQUESTRIAN POTENTIAL enjoys picture postcard views and stands proudly in approximately two acres of MAGNIFICENT GROUNDS.

DESCRIPTION

Historically the property was the residence of a local order of Benedictine Monks who would make the short walk to the Priory and Church. Standing proudly in approximately two acres of majestic grounds this substantial building was sympathetically converted by the previous owners with great attention to detail including oak panelling, exposed timber and stonework, flagstone floors with under floor heating. The current owners of Priory Barn have taken over the mantle with some gusto and made significant improvements to the property and grounds. The accommodation itself is over two storeys with the first floor drawing room being a real feature with its imposing galleried seating area, further flexibility comes with the en-suite downstairs bedroom and separate detached one bedroom annexe above the triple garage block. From the southern facade there are spectacular far reaching views across the garden and land to the countryside beyond. Priory barn is well-equipped for equestrian use with a superb stable yard, former menage and paddocks which could be easily enclosed to re-instate its former use.
