4 bedroom Barn Conversion - House for sale

Guide price £690,000 For Sale


South Tythe Barn forms part of a very early and large former Tythe barn dating back, we believe to the 18th Century. The barn was divided into two in the 1920's to create an exceptionally fine home. This delightful four/five bedroom, Grade II listed property provides spacious and well proportioned living accommodation and is full of charm and character with some stunning features. We understand some materials were sourced from St. Stephens Priory. Amongst the many features are the beamed walls and ceilings and the fabulous vaulted entrance hall with stain glass windows and owl loft. There are leaded light windows and latch doors amongst many other things.

To the ground floor there are three reception rooms, one which could be used as a guest bedroom if required, kitchen/breakfast room, utility area and a cloakroom. Whilst to the first floor there are three bedrooms, a bathroom and an additional shower room. To the second floor is a further bedroom.

Outside there is a detached double garage and paved rear garden with mature plant and shrub beds. To the front the good sized garden is laid mainly to lawn with a variety of plants, trees and shrubs.

The Drive is one of Chestfield's premier roads with nearby sporting facilities including an 18-hole golf course, rugby and cricket clubs. Chestfield also offers a popular public house/restaurant, railway station and doctors surgery.
