The Property Woodcrest has been converted from a range of period barns just a few years ago and offers a great deal. Not only is there the family home, but also a successfully run attached holiday cottage, an area that has been used as a home business, and planet of workshop/games room outbuildings. The essence of a barn conversion has been retained with spacious open living areas which provide a blend of contemporary and traditional styles, and the design works very well with both ground floor and first floor bedrooms and bathrooms catering for all ages. This is a wonderful family home with so much more besides.
The Holiday Cottage This is attached to one end of the main barn and is a separate self contained property. It has been designed to be in keeping with the rest of barn and has been let as a holiday cottage to a letting company for the last 3years producing a turnover of between £24,000 and £30,000pa. Bookings are still being taken and the property has attracted a good number of repeat visitors.
Outside The property is set within 1.5acres with the majority of ground extending to the north side and open fields. There is plenty of parking for both the main barn and the holiday cottage on a gravelled area which links up the barns. A large sandstone patio on the south is a wonderful sun trap. To the rear where the main garden lies, there is an expanse of grassland and a large pond. This barn has the benefit of two access points off the quiet lane meaning the house and holiday cottage are quite independent.
