At the foot of the Chiltern escarpment, nestled within this pretty hamlet is West Barn, a substantial barn converted to exacting standards. Internally, the property boasts breathtaking open plan rooms, sympathetically approached yet with a twist of modern day living. From the moment you step into the impressive vaulted reception hall, the imposing solid oak twisting staircase exposes a wealth of character and leads you into a stunning open plan room used not just as a kitchen/breakfast, but also a family and dining room and even a sun lounge once the large bi-fold doors are opened. The kitchen is fitted with all the trimmings you would expect of this property, including a large four oven Aga, electric oven and integrated appliances. The sitting room really is striking with a vaulted ceiling, exposed beams, glazed doors onto the garden and what can only be described as a magical bespoke fireplace with inset wood burner. Ground floor living space continues with a useful study featuring bespoke built-in desks and storage, a utility room and guest cloakroom. To the first floor is an indulgent 22’ master bedroom with a large roll top bath on display, together with a very clever opening for a well appointed walk-in shower and separate cubicle with W.C. In addition, there are two further double bedrooms with built-in wardrobes served by a spacious family bathroom. If working from home or self contained accommodation is a requirement, the current owners have converted space above the triple garage with a wonderful glazed link and second staircase providing access to a large landing and two generous bedrooms served by a modern bathroom. Further ancillary accommodation is available in a recently constructed Shepherds Hut. This beautiful character building features a bedroom with kitchenette and shower all contained in a modern insulated environment.
Outside, the property is approached through electric timber gates where a sweeping gravel driveway opens to an area of off street parking for ample vehicles leading to triple garage with electric doors and adjoining workshop. Beautiful landscaped gardens surround the barn and directly to the rear is a split level large York stone terrace with bespoke greenhouse offering a sunny south-westerly aspect ideal for al-fresco dining. A duck pond borders the property to the rear with extensive planting and specimen trees with a further generous garden to the north boundary currently used as a child’s play area complete with a solid oak carved tree house. The gardens are bound by post and rail fence work and adjoins beautiful open countryside.
