Lodgebury Barn is a delightful four bedroom barn conversion with excellent equestrian facilities, outbuildings and approximately 6.3 acres. It forms one part of a four barn development within Lodgebury Court completed in the late 1980’s.
The current vendors have undertaken a comprehensive programme of improvements both internally and externally. The house has been refurbished to a high specification incorporating many exposed ceiling timbers & provides deceptively spacious family accommodation, with glorious rural views to the rear westerly aspect, across the garden, patio areas and land, towards the Welsh hills. The equestrian facilities, outbuildings and land provide the fabulous opportunity for the lifestyle equestrian user or those who wish to utilise the considerable external accommodation and space.
The front entrance door is set neatly under an oak framed Porch which leads into the spacious entrance hall with stairs to first floor level, under stairs storage and doors off to the cloakroom, three reception rooms and the breakfast kitchen. The entrance hall, with mahogany parquet flooring, leads into the dining room via the glazed double doors with dual aspect windows, uniform parquet flooring from the hall & continuing down into the breakfast area of the kitchen. The bright & spacious kitchen benefits from a large double glazed window to the rear aspect above the sink and glass French doors to the side. The delightful kitchen has hand made solid oak base and wall mounted units by ‘Cottage Craft’ with fitted ‘NEFF’ appliances including a double oven, induction hob, microwave and dishwasher. There is a utility room off the kitchen with space for a washing machine and further storage cupboards; there is a rear entrance door to the patios and gardens with pathway across the garden to the stable yard and land.
The remaining ground floor rooms are accessed from the entrance hallway include a spacious living room having an impressive brick fireplace and granite stone mantel housing the ‘Clearview’ multi-fuel burning stove, French doors onto the patio area and gardens. The Snug, has previously been used as an office or playroom with window to the front aspect.
At first floor level the master bedroom has a dressing area and an en-suite bathroom with shower over the bath. The master bedroom benefits from duel aspect windows which take in the spectacular views across the gardens, stable yard, land and countryside beyond. Bedroom two would be an excellent guest bedroom with en-suite shower room and the two other bedrooms are served by the family bathroom which has a three piece white suite with electric shower over the bath. There is a large airing cupboard on the landing.
All four properties within Lodgebury Court have their own allocated parking to the front within the courtyard and benefit from the double garage with further concrete parking to the rear of the garage as well.
