    Come and take a look around…

    Meadow Barn offers undulating scenic views for as far as the eye can see. As well as the rural setting — which offers great hacking — there is approximately 3.08 acres of land, including well fenced paddocks suitable for grazing.

    There is a stable block comprising three boxes and a tack room/hay store with a concrete area in front. We think this compact set-up is ideal for the non-competitive owner with a couple of horses looking for the quiet life.

    Outside, you will find pretty gardens, a pond and a separate annex providing a guest house or additional family accommodation.

    The main house is a four-bedroom barn conversion. The barn is believed to have been converted around 30 years ago.

    The agents pit this home as “one of the very best barn conversions they have offered to the open market” and it’s easy to see why from the striking interior.

    There are four double bedrooms to the first floor as well as two bathrooms. The ground floor offers a large gallery, kitchen/breakfast room, living room, dining hall, two garden rooms, large office, shower room and utility room.
