Vendors' thoughts: "If ever bricks (Cotswold stone) and mortar became a home, this is it! When we moved in our three children were babies, as we prepare to leave they are young adults, and all those happy memories and milestone moments are ingrained into the very fabric of the building, our hearts, and our memories. We sincerely hope the new owners are as happy in this wonderful warm and welcoming home as we have been. We leave with a lifetime of wonderful family memories that will last forever!"
In a nutshell: A really impressive family home in a fabulous spot!
The Long Byre is a beautifully converted south facing barn with excellent living space and open views over the surrounding countryside. Situated on the edge of Poulton, the house, wrapped around a pretty courtyard, has been thoughtfully renovated and designed for contemporary living including bespoke carpentry throughout by T & J Carpentry & Joiners.
This delightful home provides excellent space for entertaining family and friends. The generous living areas, which flow seamlessly, have been thoughtfully laid out to offer not only space and light, but also comfort and warmth.
The bespoke kitchen, handmade by T & J Carpentry & Joiners with integrated Miele appliances, is superbly equipped to cater for intimate and larger gatherings alike. The oil-fired cream Aga adds a rustic note to the contemporary style of the kitchen and French doors leading to the terrace and garden allow for indoor/ outdoor living in the warmer months. The kitchen island is perfect for informal dining and morning coffees.
The living room overlooking the terrace is clearly the heart of the house and is superb for entertaining or equally ideal for quiet nights in. The gas fire adds extra warmth in the winter and French doors lead to the terrace. The exposed beams and oak floor add great character to this impressive room.
The adjacent sitting room, which also double as an entrance hall, is perfect for quiet moments with a good book.
The East wing of the ground floor comprises the master bedroom suite with its dressing room and bathroom with separate shower/steam room and underfloor heating. There are three further bedrooms on the ground floor, two with en suite shower rooms and one with an en suite bath/ dressing room. All the bedrooms give on to the terrace area and have been thoughtfully laid out to provide ample storage.
The utility/ boot room and cloakroom are great additions to the ground floor. A must have for muddy wellies after a long country walk!
The first floor currently comprises an entertainment room and a further bedroom with adjacent WC.
Outside the enclosed terrace, wonderful for al fresco dining, overlooks the garden and fields beyond. The garden is predominantly laid to lawn, interspersed with herbaceous borders. The impressive tree-lined driveway provides plenty of private parking.
