Long Barn, Church Hill, Elmstone
A spectacular brand new barn conversion, completed to a particularly high standard in 2020 and situated in an idyllic rural setting, with simply magnificent views over open farmland.
Long Barn harmoniously combines a beautifully appointed and lavishly finished interior, with a truly striking and contemporary exterior. Whilst the extensive use of glazing not only ensures an abundance of light, pleasant living spaces, but also maximises the exceptional views which the barn enjoys over the surrounding countryside.
Upon entering Long Barn, you are greeted by a huge picture window at the end of the entrance hall, which overlooks a private courtyard garden and water feature, creating a fantastic first impression.
The barn enjoys a highly flexible, linear, single storey layout, with the entrance hall running the length of the barn and providing access to every room.
The main reception room is to the right of the entrance hall and is an impressive room, which measures approximately 25 ft x 23 ft and has an entire wall of bi-folding doors which afford incredible views over the garden and the countryside beyond.
The kitchen/breakfast room is to the rear of the barn and has been fitted with an extensive range of contemporary wall and floor units, alongside a host of integrated appliances, all set around a mix of oak and composite marble effect work surfaces.
A central island and breakfast bar sit beneath a huge lantern window, whilst a set of bi-folding doors opens onto a completely secluded inner courtyard garden, ideal for morning coffee.
The kitchen is further complemented by a utility room and cloakroom, which also enjoy access to the courtyard garden.
There are five bedrooms, all positioned along the front of the barn and each with double glazed French doors to ensure they enjoy views over the adjoining countryside.
The master bedroom is a generously proportioned room, with a built-in wardrobe and a superb en suite wetroom. This has a rainfall shower with body jets, contemporary Roca sanitary ware and is finished in porcelain wall and floor tiles.
The family bathroom is even more impressive, with a spectacular freestanding, double ended bath, contemporary sanitary ware, another rainfall shower with body jets, porcelain tiling and a lantern window affording the perfect view of the night sky, from the luxury and comfort of the bath directly below.
Other features include oak effect flooring with under floor heating throughout, oak internal doors, contemporary brushed stainless steel sockets and light switches, recessed spot lights and inset music sensitive LED lighting, CAT5 cabling and a CCTV and alarm system.
Long Barn is approached by a set of timber double gates, which provide security and complete privacy from the lane. These open onto a large, gravelled driveway which provides parking for numerous vehicles. An attractive sandstone patio runs the entire length of the barn and can be accessed from the living room and every bedroom. The remainder of the garden is laid to lawn, with open post and rail fencing providing spectacular views over and a sense of connection to the adjoining farmland and countryside beyond.
Long Barn enjoys a wonderfully secluded, rural setting in the picturesque village of Elmstone, situated on a quiet country lane and surrounded by beautiful farmland and rolling countryside.
