DESCRIPTION North Tythe Barn is an impressive and very attractive barn conversion situated in a private and peaceful location tucked away in a courtyard off a no through road in the sought-after village of Charlton.
This previously Grade II listed Barn was built in the late 1700's/early 1800's. It is one of the oldest properties in the village and was convert to a residential dwelling in 1980. Set in a picturesque courtyard with 3 other period properties, all of which were the original outbuildings of Street Farm.
The property has retained much of its magnificent period features including stone mullion windows and exposed stone walls whilst the current owners have made recent improvements including a remodelled open plan kitchen/dining room and installing a new bathroom, cloakroom and the addition of a bath stone fireplace.
The spacious accommodation extends in all to 1,837 sq.ft spanning over two floors and is very well presented throughout. In addition, there is an extremely large beamed and floored attic space (844 sq.ft) which could easily be converted into accommodation if required subject to planning.
On the ground floor, there are two large and well-proportioned reception rooms either side of a gracious entrance hall with flagstone flooring. The living room has a bath stone fireplace and pleasant outlook over the garden. To the rear, the newly remodelled kitchen/dining room has been beautifully fitted with well-equipped modern units, integral appliances and an AGA. This room is filled with natural light via French doors to the garden and a newly added skylight. Off the entrance hall there is a downstairs cloakroom which has also been remodelled and includes a newly fitted water softener. Upstairs, there are four double bedrooms, the stylish bathroom which was recently upgraded to a shower room with underfloor heating, and an en-suite shower room off the front bedroom.
The property has a good-sized private and quiet garden enclosed by stone walling and timber fencing arranged predominately to the side. There is a patio terrace off the kitchen French doors, perfect for alfresco dining. The garden is laid to lawn with mature trees and shrubs. There is off-road parking at the front in addition to a garage which has electricity and access to additional eaves storage above.
North Tythe Barn lost its listing status when it was converted to a residential accommodation in 1980. So, it really has the best of both worlds - lots of charming original features but without the restrictions that a listed property is subject to.
