    Upper Barn is on the market with Fine & Country for £1.5m. Let’s take a look around…

    A private drive leads to a spacious, gravelled parking and turning area. To one side is a double garage with workshop. The brick wall hides a vegetable garden with raised beds and a greenhouse.

    To the other side is a driveway leading to a stable block comprising five boxes and a tack room and a separate barn for storing hay. There is also a workshop/storage area in the barn.

    The manège is close by and there is 12 acres of paddocks.

    Inside the house, receptions rooms are set around a hallway.

    The garden room, to one end of the hallway, has floor to ceiling triple aspect views over the gardens and countryside. There are four reception areas in total.

    There is a bedroom downstairs as well as a shower room, utility area and study. The kitchen has views of the gardens and bi-fold doors onto the patio. There are quartz-style work surfaces and a limestone flagstone floor with underfloor heating. There is also a large island with wine cooler and a Thornhill Eco Range.

    The oak staircase leads from the hallway to a galleried landing overlooking the hallway and open plan areas. Upstairs you will find three bedrooms, two of which are en-suite. There is a family bathroom too.

    The master bedroom has triple aspect and exposed beams.

    The property incudes a two-bedroomed annexe, which offers a range of accommodation, including a dining and sitting room, kitchen, and shower room. There is direct access from the annexe to its own patio area and garden.
