LOVELY BARN CONVERSION - noir by david cliff - If you are one of those many people who has always wanted the opportunity to live in a barn conversion or simply wondered if `barn life` would suit you I would urge you to take a moment to be inspired.
Approached by a long driveway flanked by open fields I first found this stunning courtyard many years ago when a friend of mine bought one of the stables and has stayed there ever since, and you can see why, where else would you rather be.
Whilst tucked away in your own little piece of countryside you do still have so much close at hand. Well placed for access to Wokingham and Fleet mainline railway stations (Waterloo) and the major road links of the M3 & M4 Motorways. The area is also well served by highly esteemed state and independent schools including Finchampstead Village Primary School, Charles Kingsley C of E, Eagle House, St.Neots, Ludgrove, Wellington, Reddam House and the new Bohunt school in Arborfield. There are several additional mainline railway stations to hand including Crowthorne, Twyford, Reading and Winchfield all giving easy access to London. This area is well catered for in terms of leisure and shopping facilities, high quality restaurants and public houses.......and all from this incredibly tranquil setting.
Never Never Barn itself is wonderful and to be honest the floor plan doesn`t do it justice, you need to see and feel this amazing place. You have all you need but with an abundance of character and charm, the vaulted drawing room with the timber work and floor to ceiling fire place literally makes you just stand and stare. The family room is set away from the main drawing room so peace and quiet can be had, attractive brick steps take you down into this space and the large double height windows allow the light to pour in.
The kitchen/ dining room works well, great for more informal entertaining, really sociable and relaxing. The rooms have views and access out onto the private gardens and countryside views beyond.
With four double bedrooms, family bathroom and en suite upstairs you do also have all the functionality of a more conventional home but within this stunning barn frame work ..... and barn frame work gives you vaulted and exposed timber features. The overall feel here is light and bright which you wouldn`t always expect, and it`s lovely and we would encourage you to come and see for yourself.
