Chowles Barn is believed to date back, in parts, to the late 1300s, combining a former period cottage with the adjacent barn to create a family home offering versatile and flexible accommodation. The superb dual aspect drawing room, with dining area, boasts a vaulted ceiling, exposed timbers and beams, stone slab floor and impressive Inglenook fireplace. The kitchen/breakfast room has a bespoke solid wood fitted kitchen with solid wood worktops, range cooker and brick paved flooring to the breakfast area.
There are two bedrooms on the ground floor, one with a spacious en suite bathroom and the other with access to a delightful veranda. On the first floor are three further bedrooms and a family bathroom with separate shower and vanity sink with marble top. Further features of note include exposed timbers and beams, period fireplaces, parquet flooring, quarry tiled and terracotta tiled flooring, wooden floorboards, and wood latch doors.
The property is approached via double 5-bar gates to a gravel in/out driveway which, along with the garage, provides ample parking. The adjacent outbuilding, currently used as a workshop and tractor store, has planning permission for conversion to a studio annexe (ref: DC/17/2461).
The picturesque gardens, enclosed by mature hedging, are divided into different areas providing formal lawns, attractive stone slab terrace with adjoining clipped box hedging, apple orchard with attractive beech avenue and a wild garden area. Steps lead down to a wooded area with a stream running through it, crossed by two wooden bridges. The enclosed paddock has two access points from the gardens and via a 5-bar gate to the southwest of the property.
