This former courtyard barn, dating back to 1829, was converted to a four double bedroom family home approximately 25 years ago. Set in beautifully landscaped private gardens in a most sought after location it offers a level of privacy and direct access into Delamere Forest. This charming home was converted sympathetically to take full advantage of the generous space available. It benefits from many character features, flexible accommodation, oil fired central heating and double glazing throughout. The separate large and versatile outbuilding, which currently incorporates a garden room, office, studio and garden store, could easily be re-configured for multiple uses. With unrivalled views and spectacular location this home needs to be viewed to be fully appreciated.
