Beautifully and skilfully designed, Church View Barn is a contemporary green oak framed country house, set neatly in its plot and taking full advantage of the beautiful rural views surrounding it. The grand reception hall with central staircase opens into the main open plan living area. This comprises a sitting room which opens into a dining room to one side with large open fireplace and log burning stove, and glazed doors opening from each space into the gardens. The kitchen/breakfast room is fitted with Miele appliances, a traditional style Aga, wine fridge, granite work surfaces and limestone flooring. The formal drawing room lies to one side with oak beam work, a large open fireplace and two sets of doors opening out to the gardens. There is also a utility room and study to one side, as well as a staircase leading up to a games room, ideal as a study or additional reception room.
The central staircase leads to the first floor with low level neutron lighting lining the hallways. The master bedroom, with vaulted ceilings, enjoys two double fitted wardrobes, a stylish en-suite with walk-in shower and twin sinks, and a large window overlooking the open countryside. There is a guest bedroom with a large en-suite, as well as three further double bedrooms and a family bathroom.
The whole house is immaculately presented and benefits from a Cat 6 music system throughout the house and with outside speakers, under floor heating to both floors, and air source heating for improved energy efficiency.

Church View Barn is approached through large wooden electric gates onto a spacious driveway at the front of the house and double garage. The gardens surround the property with the largest lawn area to the south side, off a large York stone terrace which is accessed from the kitchen, ideal for dining and entertaining. There is a secondary access which leads directly to the back of the house and stable block, comprising two looseboxes and a tack room. The gardens can be accessed from all principal reception rooms to the ground floor, creating a wonderful flow of space, both inside and out, and beautiful views to the east over the surrounding paddocks and countryside beyond.
