The single-storey dwelling, uniquely designed by an architect, is a property of character and contemporary styling, with all the added convenience of a brand-new home on one internal level. Constructed by a small local developer to a high standard it will come with the benefit of a six-year new-build warranty for peace of mind.

The three-bedroom house was originally a stone barn and has been carefully converted internally to maximise the feeling of space. This is immediately apparent in the entrance hall with its vaulted ceiling and high access to natural light from a Velux window.

The main living space is in one large open-plan room with a vaulted ceiling, French doors and full-length picture windows overlooking the gardens. The stylish kitchen is fitted with sleek contemporary units, quartz worktops and integrated appliances.

There are three double bedrooms and a luxurious family bathroom with a bath and shower. The principal bedroom has an ensuite shower room.

As a new property, the outside spaces currently provide a blank canvas enabling the new owner to be creative with landscaping and garden design. There is a lawned garden with a retaining wall and laurel hedging, while to the west side of the property, there is a further area with a paved patio and gravel that is an ideal spot for relaxing and outdoor dining.

Access to the property is via a shared entrance to the site that leads to a driveway where there is allocated parking.
