THE BARNES An exciting conversion comprising seven properties. The former nursery school hall and headmaster's house to three unique three bedroom houses and the addition of four new semi-detached, three bedroom houses in the school grounds.

Within this unique and private setting at the heart of the village, the Barnes is a stunning conversion of a former stone built, school hall to a high specification two storey, three bedroom property, under a natural slate roof.

The property retains original features such as the impressive, exposed beams and trusses to the upper floor and full height ceilings into the eaves; along with high feature windows and Velux roof windows: all of which allow the natural light to highlight the interesting build lines and shapes, not on offer in your standard new build.

This first floor features 3 generous double bedrooms, one with optional ensuite and a family bathroom. The ground floor has open plan living with separate utility, store and WC. Contemporary fittings for the bespoke, high-end kitchen and the use of Bi-fold doors, combine to deliver efficient modern living with the authentic Victorian charm.

Further features include, double glazing, oak flooring with under floor heating, quartz worktops, integrated appliances, gas central heating, heated chrome towel rails, fully tiled showers and splashbacks.

The Bifold doors open to a sunny terrace area to the front of the property which is a compact and manageable, outside space; this wraps round three sides of the property. It's ideal for those whose lifestyle dictates that low maintenance is preferred, with stone paving and lawned area.

There is safe, off-road, allocated car parking for 2 cars on site and its just a short walk to the village's many amenities.

To reflect the local history of the site, each of the homes have been named after previous Head Teachers of the original school.
