DESCRIPTION With a very deceptive appearance from a quiet leafy lane, The Barn is a beautiful period barn conversion situated in a conservation area within the picturesque village of Kington Langley. This highly sought-after village is well located for convenient access to the M4 and Chippenham rail station. Set amongst 2 acres of gardens and paddock land, the property is deceptively spacious offering substantial, well-proportioned accommodation coupled with an excellent self-contained annexe.
The property was converted to a residential dwelling in 1985, and the accommodation has been thoughtfully arranged to provide complete privacy with the main hub of the home opening out to the gardens. With full-height windows and excellent ceiling height throughout, the accommodation is south-west facing and flooded with natural light boasting a wealth of character. Over the years, the barn has been sympathetically extended and now extends in all to around 2,714 sq.ft whilst a further self-contained annexe brings the entire floor area to c.3,772 sq.ft.. The ground floor of the main house comprises principally a generous sized living room which has a high vaulted ceiling, a wood burning stove and French doors to the garden. An excellent open plan kitchen/breakfast room borrows light from the sunroom and is well-equipped with built-in appliances including an AGA, hob, oven and features a walk-in larder. A magnificent sitting/dining room has a delightful mezzanine bedroom over and a large study off.
The impressive master-suite is arranged on the ground floor featuring double doors to the garden, fitted wardrobes within a dressing area and a luxurious en-suite which has both a separate shower and bath. On the first floor, there are two further bedrooms and a family bathroom.
The annexe is arranged as the front wing of the property benefitting from its own enclosed courtyard garden and is wholly self-contained making it very appealing for a range of uses such as for a dependent relative, holiday let or nanny accommodation. The annexe extends in all to 779 sq.ft. and features a wealth of character as well. The accommodation comprises a living room, fitted kitchen/breakfast room and ground floor shower room. On the first floor, there is a study landing, further shower room and a spacious bedroom which has a lovely view over the village duck pond. There is an internal door connecting the main house and annexe therefore it could be utilised as a whole dwelling.
Externally, The Barn is approached through a five-bar gate to a large gravelled parking area in front of a useful double garage/workshop. The large gardens enjoy a great degree of privacy laid predominately to lawn with a range of patio terraces, flower beds and shrub borders meandering down to the paddock. Ideal for the budding equestrian or smallholder, the completely flat paddock extends to 1.5 acres with an access point from the road at the far end. There is an electrical point at the bottom of the garden and a range of outbuildings/sheds within the garden.
