Dyers Barn is a spacious and beautifully presented barn conversion, formerly an agricultural barn belonging to the neighbouring Jacobean timber framed Cheshire farmhouse.
The original barn was demolished and reconstructed in 2005 by the current owners and benefits from a one bedroom annex, extensive secondary outbuildings and land extending to approximately 1.32 acres in total. The property has been specified and finished to a high standard throughout, including quality fixtures and under-floor heating to the ground and first floors.
The front door opens into a spacious entrance hall with attractive tiled flooring and a semi-vaulted ceiling with exposed purlins.
The kitchen sits at the heart of the property, fitted with a comprehensive range of bespoke cabinets under granite work surfaces including a central island unit. Appliances include a stainless-steel range cooker with extractor hood and a Belfast sink. The kitchen has exposed trusses and porcelain tiling runs throughout into a spacious dining area. The principal reception room has a delightful south east aspect, a vaulted ceiling with exposed trusses and features a wood-burning stove within a corner brick chimney breast, with stone hearth and oak over mantel. French doors lead to an extensive natural stone paved terrace affording views across the gardens towards open countryside. Across the hallway is the morning room having exposed oak floorboards which run throughout much of the ground floor accommodation and glazed French doors with sidelights provide lovely views.
At the opposite end of the property is bedroom 4, currently used as a home office, which benefits from a luxurious en suite shower room. An inner hallway gives access to a spacious utility room fitted with a range of cabinets with wood block work surfaces, Belfast sink and plumbing for laundry appliances and space for a fridge and freezer. An internal door gives access to a large garage with double wooden doors, lighting and power points. Also to the ground floor is a separate WC.
A turned spindle staircase rises to a spacious landing with exposed oak floorboards which run throughout the whole of the first-floor accommodation. A wonderful master bedroom has a vaulted ceiling with exposed trusses and superb south west facing views over open countryside. The master bedroom enjoys a luxurious high quality contemporary “Roca” suite including a spa bath, a pedestal wash hand basin with illuminated mirror above, a WC and chrome heated towel radiator. Bedroom two enjoys French doors with a Juliet balcony providing superb rural views, a luxurious en suite bathroom and walk-in wardrobe. Bedroom three benefits from the use of the family bathroom which features a freestanding claw foot bath, pedestal wash hand basin, WC and a chrome heated towel radiator.
To the north east of the house is an outbuilding comprising a home office (at first-fix stage), a double car port and an annex. The annex provides self-contained accommodation comprising a contemporary fitted kitchen with adjoining living area which affords tremendous rural views. There is a double bedroom with walk-in wardrobe and a contemporary en suite shower room comprising shower cubicle with thermostatic drench head shower and a white suite along with a chrome heated towel radiator. The annex would be ideal for a dependent relative, subject to any necessary consents required.
Dyers Barn is entered via an imposing sandstone splayed entrance with remote gates giving access onto an extensive driveway providing parking for numerous vehicles, in turn leading to the attached garage. The driveway also splits-off to the car port and annex to the side of the property. The gardens are particularly private, enclosed by native hedging and are mainly laid to lawn, including a kitchen garden with raised beds and an aluminium framed greenhouse. Additional outbuildings include a twin timber framed, profile metal clad garage enjoying lighting and power points and there is a further block-built workshop which could be adapted for use as a home office, gymnasium or games room, subject to any necessary consents required.
