End Barn forms part of a small exclusive development of just four properties which were formerly farm buildings, converted circa 2000. Using reclaimed brick, this character property has many quality features and was sympathetically designed to a particularly spacious and versatile plan.

A canopy porch gives access to the solid oak front door, opening through to a wide reception hall with oak floors, built-in drinks cupboard, and beautiful oak spindle staircase.

The snug/study with built-in book-shelving is situated to the right of the hall, opposite which is the elegant lounge featuring an exposed brick fireplace on a quarry tiled hearth with timber mantle over, and a large picture window overlooking the front garden. At the far end of the hall, there is a large cloakroom/w.c fitted with a two piece suite. Extending across the full width of the rear of the house, the kitchen/dining room is very well-appointed and is fitted with a range of cream coloured base and wall units with drawers and contrasting black onyx effect work surfaces with stainless steel sink unit. Ample space for kitchen appliances, and a built-in oven with 4-plate hob and ‘Smeg’ chimney style extractor hood above. This family sized room is naturally lit by four windows overlooking the rear garden and a door leads to the utility room with further base and wall cupboards, stainless steel sink and void for washing machine.

To the first floor, the large landing provides additional study/reading space with wide ’Velux’ roof window, oak doors to all rooms, and built-in linen cupboard. The master bedroom is situated at the front of the property and is fitted with twin double wardrobes and an en-suite shower room fitted with a large shower enclosure, vanity sink unit and w.c. There are three further bedrooms, two of which have large ‘Velux’ roof windows and a circular window to the rear of bedroom three. The family bathroom is fitted with a Victorian style three piece suite comprising bath, wash basin and w.c and a second enclosed staircase leads from the landing to a useful attic/hobby room with roof window.

Grounds and Gardens
End Barn is approached over a cobbled driveway leading to the barn and the neighbouring properties. A wide entrance opens on to a private driveway with the garage directly ahead. The well-stocked gravelled and stone flagged front courtyard-style gardens are planted with a variety of mature shrubs and a particular feature is the ornamental lily pond and waterfall with random stone border. A secluded patio area is situated immediately adjacent to the front of the house providing a delightful area from which to enjoy the surroundings. The rear garden is accessed from the garage which is also designed for ease of maintenance being flagged and interspersed with gravelled areas.

The larger than average attached garage with pitched roof houses the ‘Mistral’ oil -fired heating boiler and the oil tank, and two pedestrian doors lead to the utility room and to the rear garden.
