The Property

The semi-detached barn, which forms part of a complex of four, was converted by a reputable firm of local developers and completed in 2010 with a full Architect's Certificate.  Immense care was taken within the build to utilise the highest quality materials but also to retain the inherent character of the barns. This is evident throughout the property from the impressive oak staircase and doors to the exposed sandstone feature walls along with the limestone floor tiles, oak flooring and underfloor heating throughout the ground floor. The barn was also one of the first to install an integral audio visual system which is in place in the ground floor rooms and principal bedroom.

The well-appointed kitchen, which is found to the rear of the house overlooking the garden, has a range of cream painted units with integral dishwasher and slot in appliances. This is complemented by an adjoining utility room which has space for washer and dryer. In addition, the kitchen has plentiful space for a dining table and double doors leading to the garden. Beyond the kitchen is a substantial sitting room with feature fireplace complete with a gas log effect stove. Furthermore there is an attractive living hall with dining area beneath the magnificent oak staircase and a separate study, ideal for those wanting to work from home.

To the first floor are four bedrooms, two of which have  en-suite bathrooms and a family bathroom. The bathrooms are beautifully appointed with electric underfloor heating and  high quality sanitaryware including natural stone sinks.

The private garden is found to the rear of the barn. Whilst there is parking space to the front of the property there is a designated garage to the side of the development and beyond this is a communal parking area for visitor use and overflow parking.

The barns sit in an elevated position and enjoy a particularly attractive view to the rear over neighbouring farmland to the Welsh Hills with Ruabon Moor and Chirk clearly visible on the horizon.
