Contemporary country living at its best – space, light, peace and quiet in a wonderful rural location.
Newnham Barn is an iconic Grade II Listed 19th-Century barn offering nearly 3,500 square feet of wonderful, light-flooded, open plan living space, with the principal reception room being on the first floor. Approached from the front the main door leads into the galleried hallway, from where a staircase leads to the lower ground floor.
The main living accommodation is formed from an extensive open plan area, over 80’ in length. The space is divided into three distinct areas, with the “professional” kitchen based around a large, stainless steel topped central island, which provides ample storage and doubles as a breakfast bar. Extensive cupboards along the wall provide further storage and shelving. The kitchen has a tiled floor, whilst the remainder of the room has oak flooring with ingenious inset glass panels to allow light to the lower ground floor. The dining area is adjacent to the kitchen and is divided from the sitting area by a central, double-sided wood-burning stove.
At the far gable end, bi-fold doors lead to a spacious terrace, giving lovely unspoilt views over the adjoining farmland. The first floor accommodation is completed by a room that is currently used as a study with extensive shelving. It has an en-suite shower room, and could be used as a fifth bedroom if desired.
A glazed and oak staircase leads to the lower ground floor, where a generous second hall has a door to the garden. At one end of the corridor is the master suite, with a spacious en-suite shower room and walk-in wardrobe; twin double doors lead to a terrace and garden. There are three further bedrooms (one with en-suite shower room) and a large family bathroom on this level.
Adjacent to the property is a useful multi-purpose annexe, comprising a triple car port, plant/pool room, shower, WC and changing room on the ground floor and a large open plan space above, suitable for a variety of uses. The swimming pool adjoins and has an all-weather retractable cover.
The garden is simply landscaped in a contemporary manner with extensive use of low maintenance plants, including grasses, formiums, etc. Immediately adjoining the rear of the house is a wide paved terrace. A stone gabion wall divides the upper garden from the lower lawn.
