Bedrooms: 5
Bennick Barn has been a much loved family home for the current owner for over 27 years. During this time the property has been beautifully maintained, thoughtfully developed and extended to make it into the wonderfully versatile property that it is today. Packed full of character features, with spacious reception accommodation and 5 bedrooms this idyllically private property on the edge of a popular village has lovely gardens, a paddock together with planning permission for an outbuilding, making it an ideal family home.

Bennick Barn is approached via a sweeping, tree-lined driveway. Immediately, one is drawn into the tranquillity of the surrounding countryside and a real feeling of space, with the property set on 2.43 acres, including an adjacent paddock.

A welcoming front door into a porch with storage for coats and shoes, opens to a lovely entrance hall which embraces the heart of the home. A double height sitting room with magnificent, exposed beamed ceiling and cosy log burner is the perfect space to relax, sit back and enjoy the peacefulness of Bennick Barn. An open plan room, it has shallow stairs down to the breakfast area, kitchen and laundry room. With French windows opening to a dining terrace and a beautifully planted walled garden, one is immediately able to imagine a summers day BBQ with friends and family.

The kitchen has a good range of oak units with quartz worktops and has an integrated double oven, electric hob and dishwasher. A back lobby contains a wonderful larder complete with stone cooling slab and leads straight through to a pleasingly spacious dining room with exposed beams, views over the garden through French doors and an inglenook fireplace complete with log burner.

There are two wings to Bennick Barn that offer flexible options for use. Currently arranged as 5 bedrooms an office and a studio, each room has its own character, and all offer spectacular views or a pleasant outlook over the gardens.

To the left, is the office with built in bookcase, a ground floor bedroom and a large family bathroom with both bath and shower. Stairs rise to the first floor where there is a fabulous studio room flooded with light thanks to the Velux windows. Far reaching views and a Juliette balcony make this a charming room.

To the right a further two ground floor bedrooms are served by a downstairs shower room and rising to the first floor the principal bedroom with en-suite is complimented by another bedroom and bathroom.

Outside - Bennick Barn has a sweeping driveway that leads to a hard standing area with off-street parking for multiple cars. There is also a double garage with up and over electric door and access straight into the house.

The gardens are a real feature of the property. Seamlessly blending into the surrounding countryside the pretty walled garden which is planted for easy maintenance is set back behind a wide terrace which spans the width of the barn. Planted areas include a plethora of mature shrubs and trees including wisteria, clematis, magnolia and cherry trees which provide an abundance of year-round interest. To the rear closed off with a pretty picket fence there is a lily pond, fed by a natural spring and framed by a drystone wall.

A pathway leads through to the "Ox Pen", a substantial additional barn currently being used as a log/garden store that already has planning permission to be converted into a separate 1-bedroom annexe, with en-suite, sitting room, separate sitting room and a linen store. Stretching out from here is the paddock area which is enclosed and fabulously private which offers the opportunity to use it as an amenity space maybe keeping livestock, a horse or just enjoying it for camping and adventures.
