This Simply Stunning Barn conversion for sale in Clifton upon Dunsmore, has to be one of the most spectacular properties I have ever seen.
As someone who is really interested in architecture, this property has intrigued me over the last few years since its conversion. In fact, I have tried to blag an invite on more than one occasion simply to go and admire it. But having been lucky enough to be invited to visit, it has exceeded all my expectations.
Being nestled behind the hedgerow and five-bar gate, you’d be forgiven for driving past without even noticing it.
But that’s the charm and beauty of the Round Barn. Although ‘Quirky’ and interesting, it’s modest external appearance eludes to the sheer quality and understated elegance of this wonderful home.
It’s not ostentatious; it’s warm and inviting and makes you feel that you have been welcomed into the most magical ‘Holiday Home’, instantly giving you the feeling of relaxation.
Ok, so you can tell I really like this one!!
"Everyone who visits say they feel like they’re on holiday and it’s a Shangri-La."
Let’s be practical though. This is very much a Family Sized home. There are four double Bedrooms with two en-suite wet rooms, a seriously luxurious family bathroom with ‘wet area’, rain forest shower and a free standing oval bath that you can relax in whist watching TV!
A most impressive utility/ boot room which has a further raised shower recess, is an ideal place to hose down the dog (or the kids for that matter – whichever the dirtier!) There is also as a separate downstairs cloakroom.
The light and generous master suite occupies the whole of the first floor. It’s simply furnished and relaxing, offering a wet room and private dressing room and great views of the neighbouring paddock.
But nothing quite prepares you for that first glimpse. Entering under the Wisteria covered Oak framed canopy, you arrive at the light flooded entrance hall, with its oak, marble and glass finishes complimenting each other beautifully.
"It’s so peaceful and serene here with a lovely bright open feel. It’s my little slice of heaven with the wow factor when you walk through the front door".
Double glass doors then lead you to the most remarkable open plan space, incorporating a wonderful Walnut Kitchen filled with integrated appliances, a sizeable dining area and a glorious sitting area where three sofas denote a designated area to kick back and relax, all benefiting from under floor heating.
What’s so lovely is that it is a space where old and modern furnishings effortlessly complementing one another, whilst large modern tilt and turn double glazed windows, with remote controlled blinds, allow you to admire the 90 degree views of the paddock and farmland space that surrounds it.
"The barn is totally private and in the summer months it’s wonderful to see the uninterrupted view of the sunrise".
Externally, a wraparound patio area, accessed from the bi-folding doors, creates a selection of outside ‘zones’ designed for, eating, relaxing, exercising and ‘Hot Tubbing’! There’s even an outside hot and cold shower. It’s a real sun trap here with glorious views of the garden and surrounding area.
To the front of the property, there is a huge gravelled area accessed via a five-bar gate and providing parking for numerous vehicles.
The adjacent Paddock area, which extends to about 1.86 acres, may be available by separate negotiation.
