The property retains original timber beams, the old stone walls have been repointed and the windows are wood framed double glazed in a cottage style in keeping with the barn's environment. The property also benefits from oil fired central heating, oak internal doors, chic bathroom suite and soft closing kitchen units with appliances included.
