Magnificent structure clearly in evidence

Owl Barn is a substantial Grade II listed period barn with a wealth of character, vaulted ceilings and some magnificent beams, timbers and framework,.

The converted barn forms part of a traditional farmyard at Berry Court Farm and is believed to date back to the 18th century. The building is constructed of part brick and oak framework with a queen post roof with curved braces, clad with heavy oak weatherboarding with sealed double glazing. Internally the structure is clearly on display creating a fascinating living environment with enhanced lighting and broad oak flooring to the ground floor.

A full height glazed entrance hall has limestone flooring, useful cupboards and a door into the vaulted open plan principal living space. This room is easily divided up into a sitting area in front of the mellow brick inglenook fireplace with its log burning stove; and a dining area close to the kitchen and French doors which open to a terrace and garden. Open timber framing leads to the kitchen which is beautifully fitted with pippy oak cabinets, a central island, granite work surfaces, Alpha range for cooking, central heating and hot water, and lovely slate flooring. There is also space for the family to enjoy breakfast in this room. A utility room and cloakroom lead off a side lobby.

On the ground floor of the western flank three double bedrooms radiate from a spacious inner hallway together with a bathroom and separate shower room.

Staircases on either side of the barn rise to galleried areas overlooking the principal living space with a superb master bedroom, magnificent bathroom and good storage on one side and an open family space with a fully glazed oak framed enclosed office on the other.
