About the property
A delightful period and most charming three bedroomed barn conversion, offering a wealth of charm and character throughout in a delightful secluded tranquil setting.
A quite delightful charming three bedroomed semi detached barn conversion, enjoying an idyllic secluded location, adjacent to open fields and providing comfortable well considered centrally heated and double glazed accommodation. Within this small enclave of barns converted many years ago to a high standard and specification. The date stone shows 1837 and the property forms part of the Grange Farm Development within this secluded location off the popular Cat and Fiddle Lane within West Hallam.
The refurbished accommodation now extends to first floor living room with exposed trussed roof beams, vaulted ceiling and brick feature fireplace with wood burning stove. There is a well appointed fully fitted stylish modern dining kitchen with fully integrated appliances and granite work surfaces. To the lower floor off the spacious entrance hall access is gained to a good sized utility room with access being provided to the rear garden, principal bedroom with French doors and a delightful en-suite shower room, two additional double bedrooms and a period four piece bathroom suite with cast iron roll top bath.
Outside is a particularly attractive carefully considered landscaped garden of cottage style with patio areas ideal for al fresco dining, lawns and well stocked mature borders. There is a single garage and additional space as part of a garage block.
The sale provides a very genuine opportunity for a discerning purchaser to acquire this sumptuously appointed semi-detached cottage offering a wealth of charm and character throughout, with many exposed beamed ceilings, Douglas Fir Framed double glazing and Douglas Fir handcrafted fitted doors throughout. Viewing essential.
Please be advised there is a shared septic tank with other properties within the courtyard. We believe the septic tank complies with current regulations.
