Description

The bulk of Northfield Barn dates from the early 1600's but there have been a number of sympathetic additions since then. The whole building has been meticulously restored and refurbished by the present owners to a particularly high standard. Much thought has been given to the internal configuration and the period character of the building which has been cleverly retained and blended with quality contemporary fittings.

Of particular note is the fabulous kitchen/breakfast room, handmade in oak by Winchmore kitchens, which opens into a more formal dining area and then into a snug. In essence, a room for all occasions. Leading on from this is a larger than average, but still cosy sitting room which enjoys magnificent views of the gardens and rolling countryside beyond. The master suite is on the ground floor in a quiet corner with the remaining 3 double bedrooms on the first floor, accessed by a very fine oak staircase, served by a modern family bathroom and 2 en-suite shower rooms.

In addition the property boasts a versatile leisure wing, accessed via a glazed walkway and currently providing space for a study, billiard room and gym. The potential remains for a purchaser to make some simple alterations to convert this space into a self-contained annexe perfect for long term guests or relations.

The property is approached via a well-made tarmac driveway which continues through electric timber gates on a generous parking and turning area, with garaging and outbuildings to one side and gardens on the other. The gardens continue around 2 sides of the property, fronted by an inviting stone patio and bound by a wildlife pond and copse of mature trees. To the rear of the property is a natural courtyard, finished in striking Indian sandstone, providing a fabulous space to enjoy the afternoon sun. In addition there is a paddock adjoing the garden to the north, equating to approximately 2.9 acres.
