A stunning five bedroom, courtyard style barn conversion, set in a sought after, semi-rural location.
Lower Shuckers was originally an open faced barn and two separate buildings, which was imaginatively converted by the current owners in, we believe, 2015 to become a stunning family home.
At the heart of the home is the superb dual aspect kitchen/breakfast/family room which incorporates the original beams of the barn. The bespoke, hand built fitted kitchen has a central island, larder cupboard, stylish worktops and bi-folding doors opening onto the south-facing central courtyard. The drawing room and library are both dual aspect; the former having an impressive fireplace with wood burning stove and bi-folding doors onto the courtyard.
Staircases lead from the reception hall and inner hall to both 1st floor wings. The spacious master bedroom suite boasts a generous dressing room with bespoke solid wood fitted wardrobes and a contemporary style bathroom with walk-in shower and separate bath. There are 4 further en suite bedrooms all with bespoke, solid wood fitted wardrobes; 3 located on the 1st floor and 1 on the ground floor. Further features of note include underfloor heating throughout, engineered oak flooring, bespoke joinery, local area network/broadband connections throughout and TV points to most rooms.
Agents note 1: The fountain pictured in the courtyard image is not included in the sale.
The property is approached via an electric wooden 5-bar gate to an “in-out” gravel drive which, along with the three-bay car barn, provides ample parking.
The gardens are enclosed by mature hedging and wood panel fencing which provides a high degree of privacy and seclusion. There are two areas of lawn with flower and shrub borders, and mature specimen trees including oak and willow; with a “Breeze” house and seating area to the front. The south-facing courtyard at the rear has an attractive Indian sand stone terrace; providing the perfect location for outside entertaining.
Agents note 2: A paddock of about 1.3 acres is available under separate negotiation.
