    Long Barn represents an immaculately presented and spacious detached country residence, which has been the subject of a total transformation by the current vendors in recent years and finished to a very high standard throughout in a modern style whilst maintaining the warmth, charm and character of the former traditional barn. Located in a small hamlet of just eight other properties, the property is surrounded by unspoilt countryside yet close to the desirable village of Meshaw. Long Barn enjoys a large plot of just under half an acre with mature gardens and grounds together with off road parking for a number of vehicles and a useful store/workshop. It is thought the large gravelled area to the rear would provide space to accommodate a further workshop/garage or car port if required, and subject to any necessary consents.

    The spacious accommodation is highly versatile depending on a prospective purchasers needs, comprising a flexible layout which formerly suited dual occupancy living. On the ground floor is a spacious entrance hall leading to a large reception hall and a ground floor fourth bedroom/office or reception room. The main hall leads to a large open-plan and smartly appointed kitchen/dining room and a separate utility room with side entrance. There is also a spacious ground floor shower room. On the first floor is an impressive 26ft living room with vaulted ceiling, exposed A frame beams and enjoying lots of natural light with five windows and three large Velux sky lights taking in some of the far reaching views. From here a landing leads to three bedrooms and a family bathroom.

    For layout and approximate room measurements please see the enclosed floorplan and refer to the Virtual Tour.


    Long Barn is initially approached from the country lane via a private gated entrance drive to the west of the barn. The gravelled drive and parking area extends around the rear of the barn and provides a large, level parking and turning area for a number of vehicles. Adjoining the driveway is useful outbuilding/workshop.

    Situated to the side is the large established garden laid mainly to lawn with mature trees, young fruit tree and hedgerow boundaries all enjoying privacy and seclusion.

    In all, Long Barn extends to about 0.43 of an acre.
