DESCRIPTION Meadowsweet Barn dates back to circa 1760 and was once used for agricultural purposes. Having been converted by the present owners in 1998 and beautifully renovated, the property now offers a substantial family home.
Much care and attention has gone into the refurbishment to sympathetically restore the barn using reclaimed materials such as solid wood floorboards from an old church, brick flooring, treated oak beams and pine ledge and brace internal doors. A fabulous feature is the bespoke staircase designed by the current owners and being made from reclaimed pine.
The barn benefits from a recently installed oil fired central heating boiler with the ground floor having underfloor heating and cast iron radiators upstairs. The windows and doors are bespoke oak double glazed sealed units with bronze tint.
The accommodation has been well laid out with the ground floor offering an entrance porch, utility room and boot room, kitchen, open plan sitting room/dining room, study, main bedroom with ensuite and further reception room/bedroom and family bathroom.

There is a patio path to the front door giving access to the entrance porch.
