Stone Farm Barns is an impressive Grade II Listed barn conversion complete with an adjoining self-contained 1 bedroom annexe. The property lies within a peaceful small close of varying period barn conversions quietly located in the very pretty and rural village of Leighterton. The whole is accompanied by charming walled gardens and an orchard, extending in all to some 0.60 acres incorporating an ample private parking area and outbuildings/garaging. Converted in the 1990s from a tumble down barn, the property has retained much of its charm and period features. The barn has striking elevations with projecting barn porches at both the front and rear, whilst there is an enchanting archway linking the main barn to the annexe.
Internally, the principal accommodation includes a large reception room at the heart with a magnificent galleried staircase. Within this reception room there is a sitting area overlooking the garden at the front, and a cosy living area with a stone fireplace and wood-burner stove inset. Glazed partitioning leads to the dining room which adjoins the farmhouse style kitchen, fitted with a range of antique pine units and a vaulted ceiling above. On the first floor, there are three bedrooms and two bathrooms. The larger bathroom is fitted with a cast iron roll-top bath, a separate shower and is conveniently beside the principal bedroom whilst the other two bedrooms are served by a shower room. The barn offers some 2,185 sq.ft. of accommodation. The landing provides access to the delightful glazed bridge which cleverly connects to the first floor of the annexe which provides a fourth bedroom.
The annexe is a wholly self-contained wing offering excellent ancillary accommodation suitable for a range of requirements. The annexe has its own private entrance complete with a courtyard garden, but does also connect to the main barn and offers an extension of the primary accommodation if preferred. The accommodation extends in all to a sizable 872 sq.ft. The ground floor layout includes two reception rooms, the living room of which with a log effect electric burner, and a fitted kitchen. Upstairs there is a good-sized double bedroom with a vaulted ceiling and en-suite bathroom.
Approached over a gated gravelled driveway, there is plenty of off-street parking positioned in front of the garaging which has water, drainage and power connected. The garaging currently provides excellent storage and has potential for conversion which a pre-application is in the process of being submitted. There are gardens to the front and rear of the barn, laid mostly to lawn and all bound by stone walling. The formal garden is arranged to the front of the barn enjoying a good-degree of privacy and a west-facing aspect. Within this garden there is a lovely waterfall feature and a lily pond. Beyond, there is a larger lawn with raised vegetable beds and an orchard. There is a range of productive fruit trees within the grounds including apple, plum, fig and pear.
