The Property

Discreetly positioned within Pentlow, this unique barn conversion is believed to date from the early 16th Century with a much later single storey extension. The barn is recessed from a minor country lane offering a sheltered, semi-rural position which backs onto undulating countryside.

The well-presented accommodation provides a welcoming reception hall which leads through to the rear sitting room, giving a good sense of space with much natural light via full height glazed double doors on a rear terrace. Apart from the

adjoining play room / family room, the remaining ground floor areas are predominantly the bedroom suites which are well served by 3 bathrooms, 2 of which are ensuite. The master bedroom forms the core of the single storey addition which can easily be self-contained from the remaining living areas, owing to an inner lobby and utility room giving independent access to the rear. Accessed via an impressive solid oak staircase, the first floor offers a practical, open plan arrangement with the central dining room offering further views over the gardens and countryside beyond via a further set of double doors which lead onto the balcony. The vaulted sitting room offers a wood burner which is an attractive focal point with further glazing to the rear. Directly opposite is the kitchen with extensive solid oak work surfaces which compliments the heavily timbered wall and ceiling beams with a high level window to the southern gable end providing an abundance of natural light. The kitchen is stylishly fitted, offering all the usual integral appliances with a large black granite surround/drainer to the kitchen sink.


Set behind a brick wall, the entire conversion and adjacent double cartlodge forms a large enclosed courtyard offering ample parking and turning space. The principal gardens are predominately to the rear and side (south west) which chiefly consist of two large areas of lawn, subdivided by

native hedging. Immediately to the rear of the barn is an extensive dining terrace with steps leading up to the balcony and dining room. To the far western boundary is a detached annexe which provides useful ancillary accommodation with

kitchenette, shower room and open plan reception space.

A covered terrace area is to the front of the annexe with log store to the rear.
