Barn Conversion Tenure: Freehold

This is we feel a most unusual and exciting opportunity to acquire a substantial barn conversion which has in recent years been let by our vendor and is now looking for a new owner.

Although is need of some general modernisation and updating throughout there are few points to be considered from outset which we think makes Mowhay Barn such an exciting opportunity.

Of traditional stone and slate construction, this detached barn conversion naturally forms part of a larger collection of homes but the topography of the land not only affords a good degree of privacy it also offers flexible accommodation arranged over two stories.

Currently arranged with reverse level accommodation, as you enter the property at entry level can be found an entrance lobby, WC and open plan kitchen/breakfast room. From here and inner hallway reveals a second reception room or indeed four bedroom. Stairs descend to bedroom accommodation and from the inner hallway a door reveals a magnificent dual aspect living room with a concealed staircase leading to a mezzanine area overlooking the room which has in the past served as a super study come office space. There is also additional storage beyond the mezzanine.

At lower ground, depending on one's outlook to the layout at each end of the building can be found two ensuite bathrooms, then a further bedroom and what has in the past been a utility room with farmhouse sink which could of course be re purposed.

Again due to the topography of the plot at lower ground level there is a further external door and reception hall which if your refer to the floor plans will give an indication of the flexible accommodation this property can offer.

Outside the property is accessed via a shared driveway which in turn branches off into Mowhay Barn demise which is split between mature garden, significant hard standing for parking and a large Nissan Hut serving as a garage and a chicken run.

This really is an exciting opportunity for someone to purchase a dynamic and beautiful barn conversion and really make it their own, an opportunity that does not present that often.

Although peaceful and rural in location this property is conveniently located in relation the A30 making this a practical and accessible country home.
