Property SummaryThe Coach House is an outstanding barn conversion situated on an exclusive development in the pretty and rural village of South Barrow. The former barn has been triumphantly renovated to an unusually high standard and is now a luxurious family home that still retains its original character and charm. High quality building materials have been used both internally and externally with impressive attention to detail throughout the house. Attractive Oak cladding blends with red brick walls and French Grey painted windows retaining the integrity of the building whilst giving it a modern feel.
The front door opens into a generous hallway with an elegant staircase, combining a mixture of oak and glass, that leads to the landing. Off the hall is a magnificent kitchen/diner that acts as a focal point in the heart of the house. Underfoot is an elegant light coloured Limestone Floor from Jaipur, warmed by an underfloor heating system. Smart kitchen units and high end kitchen appliances include a Brittania dual range cooker, Samsung American Style Fridge/Freezer with water dispenser and an integrated NEFF dishwasher. The sitting room is a light and bright space, furnished with Andora classic oak floors and features a state of the art wood-burner. Off the kitchen is a well-equipped utility room (with access to the garden).
Two of the four bedrooms are on the ground floor and both have en-suites, the master bedroom featuring a bath, shower and generously sized dressing room adding a touch of luxury. The two remaining double bedrooms upstairs are well proportioned, each with en-suite shower rooms. All the aforementioned are equipped with high end fixtures and fittings, and reinforce the high standards of finishing evident throughout the house.
The property stands next to an impressive garage with the same oak cladding and stone work, with an electric car charging point. The sizeable garden is a blank canvas ready for the new owners to design as they wish.
