Believed to date back to the 1700s, Upper Swaynes Barn has been sympathetically converted to combine the character of the original building with modern amenities, including underfloor heating throughout. The triple aspect kitchen/breakfast room has a bespoke fitted kitchen, integrated appliances and stylish granite worktops. The stunning drawing room boasts a vaulted ceiling, exposed timbers and beams, polished stone floor, log burning stove and French doors giving access to the courtyard.
There are four spacious bedrooms also on the ground floor, together with a modern family bathroom with separate shower, and an easy-to-manoeuvre floor hatch providing access to a cellar, complete with wine racks. A solid wood, turned staircase leads to the galleried landing and dual aspect master bedroom with vaulted ceiling, plantation shutters, exposed timbers and beams, dressing room and a contemporary-style shower room. The Guest Barn comprises a spacious family room, playroom/study and cloakroom on the ground floor. On the 1st floor are two dual aspect double bedrooms with vaulted ceilings and a luxurious bathroom with separate shower and freestanding bath. The separate brick built former Granary has power, light and water connected and could, subject to the necessary consents, provide guest, office or holiday let accommodation.
The property is accessed via a private, shared drive and has two entry points; one leading to a gravel drive, courtyard and garden to the front of the property, and the other via a 5-bar wooden gate leading to the rear with driveway, garage, "dragon garden" with pergola and climbing roses, ornamental pond and lawn area with fruit trees, potting shed and greenhouse.
The formal garden to the front is delightful, enclosed by mature hedging. The garden is mainly laid to lawn and boasts an impressive Oak tree, as well as a natural pond with fountain feature, Beech "mini maze" and tree house with tractor shed. The paved courtyard and timber decked area provide the perfect locations for outside entertaining. The remaining front garden provides a paddock area, stable block and 3 bay open barn. To the right hand side of the drive is a further area of paddock which links to the additional 12.5 acres (available by separate negotiation).
