Heading past the family bathroom you are greeted by three of the four bedrooms, including the main bedroom, fitted with a luxury four-piece en-suite bathroom and a partly enclosed dressing room.
Leading around to the other side of the barn the formal entrance can be found and grants access to the study, ideal for working from home, especially for those needing direct access for their clients. The hall continues round to the second bathroom, which is positioned next to the fourth bedroom, ideal for guests or it could be used as an additional office if required.
The sitting room is the oldest and most impressive part of the accommodation with a stunning array of timber-work on display throughout the roof and walls. Engineered oak flooring flows through the dual aspect room, which enjoys a beautiful, stained-glass window on the gable wall. Two pairs of fully glazed double doors open onto the timber decked entertaining area.
