We are delighted to bring to the market this extremely rare pair of Grade II listed Staddle stone and timber framed Barns that have been sympathetically and stylishly designed by Architectural Design Solutions in conjunction with Foxbury Homes Ltd and restored by a team of highly experienced craftsmen from Richard Thorpe Construction Ltd. The Barns retain their unique character, still sitting on the original staddle stones.
The two adjoining Barns 'The Black Barn' and 'The Hay Barn', both have three bedrooms with one en-suite and a dressing area in The Black Barn, a family bathroom and a downstairs cloakroom. Each offer a slightly different layout on the ground floor, the Black Barn enjoys an open plan kitchen/living/dining accommodation whilst The Hay Barn benefits from a separate kitchen just off of the living/dining area. The larger of the two, The Black Barn, retains its original wagon way opening, and The Hay Barn its original hay loft opening. Both feature an individual, handmade oak staircase with glass panelling.
Traditional materials and methods have been used throughout the development of the Barns ensuring each home reflects modern day standards in both efficiency, comfort and style. The exposed original floor joists have been carefully treated and restored, along with some additional aged oak beams and joists. The original wagon way door and hay loft openings are retained. Both have renovated sliding timber doors which use the original runners. The slate roof has fully exposed original rafters and trusses, whilst incorporating high levels of insulation and both Barns have boarded loft storage.
Each Barn has Mandarin Stone natural honed limestone tiles in the hallway, cloakroom and kitchen with high quality oak wood flooring in the lounge/dining area. Additionally both Barns are fully carpeted in all bedrooms/dressing room and the upstairs galleried landing in Boucle Neutral wool carpets. Furthermore, the Barns include spotlights, wall lights and individual feature lights in each galleried stairwell.
The Barns also benefit from gas fired central heating with under floor heating to the ground floor, bathrooms and shower rooms, and there is a combination of high specification timber and steel conservation double glazed windows throughout. Both living spaces feature a stunning Jydepejsen Elegance wood burning stove with a 180-degree view of the fire with honed black granite hearths. The stove in the Black Barn turns a full 360-degrees.
The bedrooms with their vaulted ceilings and fully exposed timber frames offer stunning views over open farmland. The bathrooms, en-suites and cloakrooms are furnished to an exceptional standard with Duravit sanitary ware, walk-in showers, Villeroy & Boch natural limestone vanity shelves, heated towel rails and fitted mirrors combining contemporary design with original features.
Both kitchens offer Bespoke in-frame painted solid ash doors designed, made and installed by Evergreen Kitchens of Reigate incorporating many base and eye level units with Italian hand-cast polished pewter handles and are complimented by 'White Ice' granite work surfaces with upstands. Each kitchen has a Blanco Alumetallic Silgranit sink with chrome Franke tap. The Hay Barn has a Rangemaster Induction Range electric cooker with matching extractor hood whilst The Black Barn has a Rangemaster Dual Fuel Range cooker with bespoke Burbidge Canopy with extractor fan. High quality appliances throughout are all fully integrated and include dishwasher, washer/dryer and fridge/freezer.
Within the Barns there are many unique features to be discovered including original barn fittings and bespoke sliding doors. To the outside the Barns are set privately behind a five bar wooden electric gate with a keypad camera entry phone system, postbox and security lighting. Each has their own gravelled forecourt areas, with post and rail fence and natural planting, which provides ample private parking whilst located adjacent to the Barns is a large luxurious cart shed building accommodating an open carport and two separate secure storage areas. Manicured rear gardens profiting from newly turfed lawn are bounded mostly by an exquisitely restored historic flint wall as a backdrop to the rear and a timber post and rail fence between the two gardens.
