Beautiful countryside barn conversion is packed full of unique surprises!


Located on the edge of the village of Habrough is this stunningly beautiful barn conversion set back from the main road.

Situated close to St Margaret’s Church, The Barn is believed to have originally formed part of Home Farm with its late 19th Century farm buildings comprising the barn and stable block. During the 1970s, the barn was sympathetically and creatively converted into the spacious family home, full of character.

The property comprises the following key rooms; lounge, kitchen, conservatory, three bedrooms, bathroom and study. There is also a guest annexe featuring two additional bedrooms with a shower room and a lounge.

Stepping inside the L-shaped original main barn building, the spacious main reception hall with sitting area, showcases exposed timber beams. A projecting chimney breast with a fine traditional fireplace has a mahogany detailed fire surround, tiled backing and coal effect gas fire on a quarry tiled hearth.

In addition there is a built in cupboard, exposed brickwork to the front wall circular window.

There is access to a cloakroom with a stone flagged floor and WC, whilst a staircase leads to the spacious first floor landing. A study leads off the main reception hall featuring a range of fitted office and study furniture and enjoys views over open countryside.

The double aspect lounge features double opening patio internal doors from the main reception hall next to the large south-facing rear conservatory; which looks out on to private and enclosed rear gardens. Details to note in the lounge are the exposed central ceiling beam with brickwork to front and rear walls.

Whilst the conservatory side door leads out to a pleasant patio area and the rear door leads out onto the broad private rear gardens. Handsome oak style laminate flooring, part timber paneling to the walls and exposed brickwork to the main house finish the look.

A large broad Old English brick built fireplace with inset deep timber mantle top, semi-circular brick edged deep hearth with inset quarry tiling and large stove set in a brick recess completes the look.

Leading from the entrance hall, the double aspect dining kitchen is attractively fitted with an extensive range of Victorian oak style fitted high and low level furniture and a range of built in appliances. What’s more there is extensive marble effect working top surfaces and a four ring ceramic Zanussi built in hob.

The kitchen also leads through to the guest annexe; which includes garaging facilities and a workshop housed in the original stables and stores. The annexe accommodation comprises; main lounge, kitchen, two double bedrooms and shower room facilities.

Virtually self-contained, it would appeal to someone with elderly relatives or ideal for teenagers wanting their own space. The annexe lounge features a pitched ceiling, exposed roof timber members, timber fire surround with electric panelled coal effect electric fire, double glazed double opening French doors which lead out onto a decking area.

Both annexe bedrooms have pitched ceilings with exposed roof timber members and exposed brickwork to two walls.
