This delightful two-bedroom loft style apartment feels light and airy, thanks to the high ceilings and exposed timbers. Carefully converted from open office space, the accommodation is arranged around the central living area which has wonderful views to east and west, capturing the rising sun in the morning and setting sun in the afternoon. Looking out over farmland and orchard, it is in a truly bucolic setting. Interesting features have been retained during conversion, including stone-capped alcoves, stone arrow slit windows and brick arches over the windows and front door, maintaining the look and feel of the original barn building, believed to date back to about 1750. Engineered oak floors and oak veneered doors throughout the living area and kitchen provide a mellow warmth against the cool white walls and soft grey paintwork.
The galley kitchen is fitted with state of the art, handleless German units in ivory with cement-effect worktops. Fully equipped with fridge/freezer, single oven, induction hob, extractor, dish washer, washing machine and microwave oven, it opens directly off the living space, giving it an inclusive feel while successfully maintaining the integrity of the main seating area. An additional feature is a neat breakfast bar for casual eating, reading or computing. New Velux® roof windows complete the clean and light ambiance of this space.
The two good size bedrooms, opening on each side of the living room, are fully carpeted and both have high, beamed ceilings together with the architectural features mentioned above. The bathroom, featuring a large walk-in shower, toilet, hand basin and mirror cupboard is tiled to match the stone features and also has a modern, pull-up airer, making the most of the high ceiling to easily accommodate the problem of clothes drying. As with the kitchen, a new Velux® roof window provides light to the smallest room.
Heating and hot water is provided by a Worcester Greenstar Compact combi boiler situated in the kitchen area. This is fired by Calor gas as there is no mains gas in the area. There is no mains drainage and all waste is recycled through a sewage treatment plant. Light fittings throughout are equipped with low energy LED bulbs and there is a 1Kw PV solar array on the roof to help defray the cost of electricity bills. The property is hard-wired for a telephone/broadband service. The hardwood windows and external door are double-glazed.
The property is partly furnished with one double and one king-size bed, two dressing tables, a leather armchair and stool, a three-seater settee, Habitat oak dining room table and four dining chairs, a 40” smart TV and a wall mounted electric coal effect fire.
