About High House Barn

The current owners carried out the conversion of this substantial detached stone barn around 25 years ago and created an absolutely stunning family home. Works didn’t stop at the main residence, they also went on to build a heated pool and leisure suite with changing and showering facilities, a single storey 2 bedroomed cottage recently finished to a particularly high standard, a detached double garage, and a huge 50ft long workshop/agricultural building with adjoining tack room and 2 sizeable stables arranged around a courtyard with direct access to the adjoining land.

The main residence has just recently benefitted from combining the original kitchen and music room into one fantastic dining kitchen which has been superbly fitted out and has a range of top quality appliances.

High House Barn has a gas fired central heating system, whilst the cottage and pool complex are heated via an oil fired system. There are extensive gardens and grounds, loads of parking/turning areas, paved sun terraces from where you can sit and marvel at those breathtaking views, and of course the adjoining grazing land which make up a total freehold ownership of approx. 7.25 acres.
