The Hay Barn is set in beautiful countryside close to and between the lovely villages of Stamfordham and Matfen. Having recently been converted, this stunning detached property boasts a very high standard of finish together with spacious and light accommodation throughout. Modern living is afforded whilst traditional, rustic charm is maintained through the use of original stone, solid oak doors, traditional woodwork and staircases. The main living areas of the ground floor benefit from plenty of natural light which floods through windows with full height glazing before reflecting off limestone slab flooring and tasteful, neutral décor.
From the impressive entrance hallway with large glazed panels and feature staircase, is the drawing room. With its focal fireplace, this is a relaxing and peaceful space with access to the rear garden, whilst the neighbouring sitting room is a cosy snug or TV room with vaulted ceiling and exposed timber roof beams. The heart of this home is the spacious, dual aspect breakfasting kitchen which has a comprehensive range of impressive hand painted, solid wood cabinetry and contrasting granite worktops, with range-style induction cooker. A large island with under mounted preparation sink, microwave oven and feature overhead lighting sits on contrasting limestone flagged flooring. Continue through the kitchen to a superb garden room/dining room with exposed stone work, vaulted ceiling and access to the rear garden. An adjoining garage annex has a large double bedroom with en-suite shower room to the upper level, which could also be used as a self-contained home office.
The traditional timber staircase from the entrance hall rises to a bright and spacious first-floor galleried landing with a feature glazed wall providing lovely views over open countryside. The spacious master bedroom includes a semi vaulted ceiling, dressing area with integrated double wardrobe, and nicely appointed en-suite bathroom with wet room-style walk-in shower, bath, wash hand basin unit, heated chrome towel rail and WC, with glazed porcelain tiles to the walls and floor. There are three further double bedrooms to this part of the house, one with an en-suite shower room and integrated double wardrobe. A stylish fully tiled family bathroom with wet room-style shower and white suite with bright chrome fittings completes the accommodation.
Note: A choice of oak or carpeted flooring in the drawing room, sitting room and garden room will be offered to the prospective purchaser along with a log burner as part of the asking price.
Stone pillared entrance gates open to an extensive graveled driveway, car parking area and landscaped gardens. The boundary of the property is enclosed by attractive dry-stone walling. External timed feature lighting, external electric sockets and water taps are also provided.
