The barns have taken 4 years to turn into a very comfortable family home. There is underfloor heating throughout, handmade curtains to make the barn cosy in the evenings when the fire is lit and many antiques and lovely pictures.
The kitchen is a large light filled room which links the two barns, there are French windows that open onto a sheltered courtyard. There is an antique table which comfortably seats 12, a Lacanche range with 2 ovens and 5 rings on the hob, a dishwasher and a butler’s sink.
A few steps up from the kitchen is the sitting room with a large open fireplace, comfortable sofa and chairs and French windows that open onto the courtyard. There are book shelves stacked with lots of books for young and old to curl up with on a rainy day by the fire. There is also a TV with a DVD player.
A few steps down from the kitchen there is a TV room/playroom with comfy sofas and a very large flat screen television with Sky TV, games and DVD’s. There is also a built in music system with an ipod which you can use in the kitchen, sitting room, playroom and main bedroom.
