Full DetailsABOUT ROCK HOUSE This most surprising property has been the home to our client and their family since being converted from a barn circa 1988. At this time it was a more modest 3 bedroom home but a tasteful and sympathetic extension at the rear allowed it to be connected to another outbuilding within its grounds to create the more extensive home that we have today. The property is of traditional stone built construction under a stone slate roof with the final section a glazed garden room between the lounge and entrance hall added circa 2005.
The property is entered through a door to the side, into the entrance hall area which links the two original buildings. This provides access to the front section of the house through the fitted breakfast kitchen. Here there is a day room featuring the impressive arched barn window and has doors to the lounge and dining room. A glazed garden room looks right out over the garden and can be accessed from the hall or lounge.
A short set of steps from the hall leads up to the rear sitting room which also looks out over the garden. This section of the house also features a downstairs wc, office, utility room and side entrance hall.
Upstairs the central landing area again links the front and rear sections. The front features a large galleried area which is partially open above the day room revealing the top of the arch window. The master bedroom is of a good size and incorporates a modern en-suite shower room.
