Created from two detached industrial brick barns built in the 1990s and joined by a seamless glass link, the property is effectively divided into ‘living’ and ‘sleeping’ blocks which utilise large expanses of glazing to draw plentiful amounts of natural light into the interior whilst framing views out to the countryside beyond.
Approached across a shingle drive with covered parking for two vehicles, the barns are part-clad in cedar, a material intended to weather to a silver/grey finish over time. The timber is complimented by the original exposed brick base and the striking black Alitherm aluminium windows and doors.
A double height entrance hallway with stone-clad wood burner leads off into a main reception room with south-facing bi-fold doors. At the heart of the house and bridging the transition between the living and sleeping wings, the kitchen / dining area takes advantage of a vaulted ceiling and is a fantastic multi-functional family room.
A glazed walkway leads through to a collection of rooms comprising a master bedroom suite with shower room and walk-in wardrobe, family bathroom and four additional bedrooms, two of which share a ‘Jack and Jill’ shower room. The master bedroom in particular has a great feeling of space, with high ceilings and bi-fold doors out to the decked terrace.
