Escape the rat race and seek solitude and solace at Manor Farm Barn, an awe-inspiring home, where modern and traditional meet to redefine the term ‘barn conversion’.

Dating back to 1887, Manor Farm Barn was converted in 2015, and is approached along a sweeping driveway. Plenty of parking is available at Manor Farm Barn, with an attached double garage.
A Breathtaking Arrival
Stepping into the entrance hallway, underfloor heating warms the handsome Italian limestone tiles, running throughout the ground floor both indoors and out, for a seamless transition to the garden, blurring the boundaries between outdoors and in. Views greet you instantly as you enter Manor Farm Barn, from the enormous, angled windows of the light and airy, double height garden room directly ahead, setting the scene for a home in constant connection with nature and the outdoors. Pushing out towards the garden and countryside, the full height windows overlook the peaceful reflection pool outside. Doors open to either side of this room, out onto the terrace.
Wine and Dine
Opening up from the garden room is a spacious reception room currently serving as a formal dining room. With access out through French doors onto the Italian limestone terrace and rural vistas to both sides, this airy and light room is ideal for social gatherings; perfect as a second sitting room or cinema room. Follow the easy flow of this home through into the breakfast room, where incredible rustic beams extend overhead, and views extend over the golden gravel driveway to the rear.
Feast your eyes on the kitchen, opening up from the breakfast room in contemporary fashion and brimming with storage, predominantly comprising of wide, easy open-close drawers. Appliances include a Samsung double oven, microwave and plate warmer, with Neff induction hob. Family and friends will gravitate towards the capacious central island, making this space the heart of the home. Offering a seamless transition from indoor feasting to al fresco dining, bifolding doors open to the rear terrace, where the limestone flooring extends. Ponder the practical accoutrements of life at Manor Farm Barn, a home cleverly designed to offer sociable spaces while being well equipped for day to day life. A sizeable laundry room, plumbed for washer and dryer, and a rear porch with utility-boot room containing plumbing for washer dryer and a sink, and a downstairs lavatory, can be discovered beyond the kitchen. Beyond, there is handy access to the spacious garage.
When Slumber Calls
Encased in glass, limestone tiled stairs lead from the kitchen up to the first-floor landing, also serving as a reading area, awash with light from the Velux windows above and overlooking the kitchen below. Step down into the first bedroom suite, passing through a walkthrough wardrobe with feature lighting, into the main bedroom. Large and light, an arched window frames rural views. Freshen up in the en-suite wet room shower which also doubles as a sauna. There is also a wash basin, heated towel radiator and lavatory.
Designed for Life
Returning to the garden room, explore the wing to the right of Manor Farm Barn. Firstly, discover the sitting room, where long planks of engineered oak flooring emphasise the length of the room, beneath exposed trusses above. Infusing warmth is a stunning central log burner, imported from France. Bifolding doors offer instant access to the broad patio. Beyond, discover a spacious double bedroom on the right, with French doors leading out to the garden and where mirrored doors conceal wardrobe storage and a hidden entrance to a luxuriously sized en suite. Tiled underfoot, a large vanity unit wash basin accompanies a lavatory, freestanding bathtub, heated chrome towel radiator and separate shower.
Room for All
An inner hallway connects the guest suite to a further reception room, a light, open plan living area with French doors connecting to the terrace. Raise your eyes to the double height, vaulted ceiling with exposed beams soaring overhead. Original, decorative brickwork gives a further nod to the history within the walls. Consider the potential of this room – a large home office, a teenagers’ snug, or perhaps create a self contained living space for a dependent relative.
Moments of Calm
From here, step down to an inner lobby, with access to stairs to the right and onward, ahead, where a beautifully tiled bathroom features a stunning, double ended freestanding bath, perfect for soaking away your aches. Throughout the home, the bathrooms are furnished with high quality Crosswater fittings alongside Porcelanosa and Mandarin Stone ceramic, glass and travertine tiles. With alcove storage, vanity unit wash basin, lavatory and mirrored cabinet, this elite bathroom is refreshingly styled. At the end of this inner hallway is a second double bedroom, spaciously sized and looking out over the garden through windows on two sides.
A Final Discovery
From the inner lobby, ascend the stairs to arrive at the first-floor mezzanine landing, leading to another guest bedroom. A large shower cubicle features in the en suite, alongside a chrome heated towel radiator, wash basin and lavatory, whilst large Velux windows draw in the light. Sleep tight in this spacious bedroom, with fitted wardrobes, exposed beams and extensive countryside views.
