Detached barn conversation for two, NOW WITH HOT TUB (Hyropool), with magnificent views across open countryside. Open plan living space and kitchen/diner with wood burner on the ground floor. Upstairs spacious bedroom with beams, and bathroom with bath, toilet and shower cubicle.
The exterior of this 500 year barn, which had been unused for many years, was painstakingly restored* Summer 2014. The original stone repointed with lime mortar, and where necessary replaced by old stone from the site. The original stone stairway to access the first floor has been retained, though you’ll be happy to know a new internal staircase* has been added!
*thanks to the skills and patience of Kev,Mick & Dave of Bayhaven Ltd.
