Property Details

2 1 2
A rare opportunity to purchase a detached barn conversion with two double bedrooms, lying in a lane side position on the edge of the town with easy access to facilities and some wonderful country and riverside walks. The property is offered for sale with the bonus of no onward chain. The barn was converted a little while ago and was primarily used - very successfully - as holiday lets. It is now available to buy as a main full time residence or even as a bolt hole from a hectic working week or holiday home providing a great base to explore the surrounding area. The property retains character feature, including cottage style windows with deep sills, pitched ceiling with exposed timbers and delivers contemporary open plan living space with underfloor heating throughout. This delightful home must be viewed to truly appreciate the internal space, which is about 845 square feet (78 sq. m), as well as the outside grounds and its location, which is a short drive to the town centre and mainline train station as well as within walking distance to local amenities.
