Fine & Country are delighted to offer for sale this superb residential/investment opportunity comprising a magnificent 4 bedroom converted barn, together with excellent ancillary accommodation providing a further 5 en suite bedrooms, currently run as a successful Bed &Breakfast.

Constructed with brick and weatherboard clad elevations under a tiled roof this impressive detached barn dates back to the 17th Century, although local historians believe its original origins could date as far back as the 15th century. Converted between 2003 and 2005 all works have been sympathetically undertaken to preserve its many features while successfully combining modern day living with the charm and character of the original building.

The stylish and beautifully presented accommodation is arranged over two floors with the bedrooms and bathrooms to the ground floor, formal living space and kitchen to the first floor. Upon entering the spacious reception hall, you are immediately struck by the exposed timbers and amount of natural light which floods in from the double height windows to the front aspect, bank of windows and French doors to the rear aspect. The remaining accommodation at ground floor level comprises of 3 double bedrooms, the master of which has a large walk in wardrobe area, and a single bedroom/study depending on your preference or requirements. There are also 2 beautifully appointed bath/shower rooms. An en suite to the master bedroom includes 'his and hers' wash basins, range of fitted cabinets and a shower cubicle with waterfall shower and an equally stylish 'Jack n Jill' bathroom, linking the second bedroom and reception hall, includes a range of fitted cabinets and a jacuzzi bath.

However, it's at first floor level where you feel a real sense of just how impressive this property is. A quite stunning open plan style sitting/family/dining room is amazing and most certainly has the 'wow factor'. With a wealth of exposed beams to the walls and high-pitched ceilings, oak floor and wood burning stove, it really is the ideal space to enjoy cosy winter evenings or for entertaining family and friends on a grand scale. A large picture window to the rear provides the perfect place to sit, relax and enjoy an elevated view of the surrounding countryside. Vaulted ceilings and exposed timbers are also present in the adjoining bespoke kitchen which includes a range of hand crafted cabinets, Stanley oil fired range, and integrated appliances comprising oven, 4 ring ceramic hob, washer/dryer, dishwasher and fridge/freezer.

The current and only owner of The Grove Barn, since converted, has been successfully providing Bed & Breakfast facilities for the last 10 years and boasts several highly acclaimed awards including a 'Certificate of Excellence' by Tripadvisor and Visit England 'Rose Award' 2017 and is described as 'Exceptional' by booking.com and 'Outstanding' by hotels.com

A former detached garage lies to the east of The Grove Barn and was converted by the current owner in 2009. Constructed with brick and weatherboard clad elevations under a tiled roof it still incorporates 2 sets of double timber doors to ensure it creates the original look and blends in with The Grove Barn. It now offers excellent ancillary accommodation comprising a laundry room and 2 en suite bedrooms to the ground floor and an en suite bedroom to the first floor.

Beyond, a further outbuilding constructed of weatherboard clad elevations under a tiled roof was built in 2015 and designed to blend harmoniously with the surroundings. It provides an additional 2 en suite bedrooms and a laundry room. With alterations to the internal layout it could easily be converted to a self-contained annexe for dependent relatives, if desired.

The Grove Barn is set back from the road behind a well stocked shrub bed and area lawn. A low level brick wall with established laurel hedging creates privacy and seclusion for the gardens which extend to approximately a third of an acre. A large gravelled driveway allows parking for up to 10 cars serving both Grove Barn and the adjoining Bed & Breakfast accommodation. The gardens lie predominately to the south and east of the barn and are enclosed by a combination of walling and fencing. The rear boundary is post and rail fencing to take full advantage of the open aspect. Well maintained areas of lawn are divided by an arbour, with a variety of established climbing plants trained over the timber framework and interspersed with a well stocked flower and shrub beds and various delightful seating areas. There is also a garden shed and a potting shed. 

Grove Barn is delightfully situated in a semi-rural location on the outskirts of Sutton, where its surroundings are more reminiscent of Rutland, with gently undulated countryside and sheep grazing in the meadows. Facilities within Sutton village include a post office/general store, doctor's practice, pharmacy, hairdressers, take-aways, primary school, village hall, recreation ground and the Church of St Andrew. The highly regarded, award winning Anchor Inn restaurant is less than 100 yards away and there are many fine walks available across the adjoining countryside.

More extensive facilities are available in the nearby historic city of Ely, principally renowned for its Cathedral. A magnificent building with its unique Octagon Tower which dominates the landscape for miles around. There is excellent shopping, sports facilities, cinema complex, parklands, riverside walks, Thursday and Saturday markets and schools catering for all ranges, including King's, a coeducational independent day and boarding school. A mainline railway station at Ely also provides regular services to Cambridge, London's King's Cross and Liverpool Street, Stansted Airport, Norwich, Peterborough, Birmingham and Liverpool, to name but a few.

The university city of Cambridge, with its attractive combination of ancient and modern buildings, colleges, winding lanes, tree lined River Cam, extensive shopping and cultural facilities, is situated approximately 20 miles to the south. The city is not only renowned for its academic achievements but has also become an important centre for the 'high tech' and 'bio tech' industries with the University Research and Development Laboratories, Cambridge Science Park, ARM, Microsoft, AstraZeneca and Addenbrooke's Hospital/Biomedical Campus.There are also several fine museums, wonderful open spaces, including Jesus Green and Midsummer common, and punting along 'The Backs' is a must.
