Property Description

This substantial home is believed to date back to the 1700’s and has a wealth of character features throughout. The property has been lived in by our clients for some 14 years and it is now perfect for the next buyer to put their stamp on it. The accommodation includes a welcoming reception hall with an elegant staircase that ascends to the first floor. There are two principal reception rooms. The main lounge is dual aspect and has a door out to the rear patio. The room has a feature wood burning stove inset in the chimney breast. The formal dining room has been used as a games/play room, it has a feature fire surround with storage shelving either side and an open fire. The kitchen/breakfast room is spacious with a range of matching wall and base units. Included in the sale is an electric oven with hob and extractor above, a dishwasher and a wood fired Rayburn. The Rayburn fires the heating and also the domestic hot water. During warmer months, the Rayburn can be switched off with hot water provided by solar thermal and boosted by immersion if required. Completing the ground floor is a WC and useful storage pantry.

On the first floor all rooms are accessed off the light and airy landing. There are four bedrooms, all of which are comfortable double rooms with bedroom two being dual aspect. All windows enjoy a pleasant aspect over the gardens. The modern bathroom/WC is luxuriously appointed with a four piece suite comprising of a large bath and double shower tray. The room has electric underfloor heating and modern downlighters.

Barton House has many features including exposed wooden floors, solid wooden internal doors with external wooden windows being sealed unit double glazed.

One of the key benefits is the sustainability as Barton House has a PV solar array, as well as thermal solar. The ability to be able to harvest your own wood for fuel and having private drainage really mitigates the overall running costs of the home.

The property is approached by a private shared lane that leads to the driveway which has parking for a number of vehicles. There is a well enclosed area of garden at the side of the property which is predominantly laid to lawn and well stocked with an established range of shrubs, bushes and perennials. The lawn continues around to what was originally the front elevation and again has many shrubs and young trees, in this area there is a greenhouse. An elevated section of the garden is well manicured and is used as an attractive seating area being able to receive the sun throughout much of the day. There is an ornamental pond. The plot then expands up to larger area where there are a selection of specimen trees, along with the area where the solar array is found. The productive area includes a hop garden and is suitable for growing fine produce with a selection of fruit trees including cider apple, bramley cooking apples, crab apple, pear, plum and cherry. There is also a wide selection of soft fruits such as raspberry, blackcurrant and blueberry. From the top of this area there is a pleasant aspect looking back over the property towards the village and the historic church.

At the top of the garden there is a storage building and a lovely view over the surrounding landscape. Other outbuildings include a workshop with power and light and an adjacent further store. The grounds then open up to a large gently sloping paddock which is naturally bordered and has a large vineyard area which is surrounded by selection of large trees. One of the key features of this enclosure is the established vines of which there are around 360 in number! The whole setting is sheltered, tranquil and a rich haven for much wildlife.
