This attractive, detached property occupies a prime position right in the heart of the highly desirable village of Barrington, with its pretty parish church opposite and the National Trust’s Barrington Court nearby.

The detached house, constructed in 2014, also has easy access to a plethora of surrounding countryside footpaths.

Inside, the four-bedroom house is presented in excellent decorative order and is surprisingly spacious with many of the rooms having generous proportions. The main living room is large and bright with a southerly facing window with plantation shutters and there’s a feature brick fireplace housing a wood burning stove.

The kitchen/dining room has a traditional stylish look with sage grey units, quartz work surfaces, a period style, feature lighting and several integrated appliances. From here, French doors open to the garden.

On the first floor, there are four bedrooms, three of them being good-sized doubles and a well-appointed family bathroom with a contemporary suite including a freestanding double-ended bath and a separate quadrant shower cubicle. The principal bedroom is generous in size and has an ensuite bathroom.

Outside, the rear garden offers a good degree of privacy and is screened from the vehicular access at the rear by large timber gates. Much of the outside area is laid with block paving so it could easily double up as a substantial courtyard garden, with a small area of lawn and shrubs to the side.

At the front, a small walled garden area has enough room for a strategically well-placed bench to make the most of the southerly aspect. Double gates open to a short driveway that leads to a garage with timber doors.
