This delightful 4 bedroom barn conversion is situated in a rural location on the Staffordshire/Shropshire border within a 10 minute drive of the popular market town of Newport and, similarly, the village of Gnosall. Hawkswood Barn was converted into an ideal family home (or potentially holiday retreat) in 2016 and is presented to a high standard, encompassing a modern yet sympathetically traditional design. Whilst open plan, the property retains a cosy and natural warmth perfect in the winter, while being cool, light and airy in the summer. Internally, the home has 4 bedrooms on the first floor with the master benefitting from its own en-suite, as well a separate modern family bathroom. Downstairs, the reception rooms are spacious, light and airy with a modern kitchen with separate utility room and downstairs cloakroom from the entrance hall. Outside, there is off road parking and a garage to the side of the pleasant gardens. No Forward Chain.
Accommodation - On entering Hawkswood Barn your attention is immediately drawn to the light and airy nature of the home. This feeling of light and spaciousness continues throughout the property and is accentuated by the warm and pleasant dcor, the stylish open plan design and the natural light flooding through the windows.
The views from the property extend towards woodland and the feeling of tranquillity cannot be overstated.
The entrance hall is a perfect place to greet family and friends, but is also a functional space, and flows nicely to both the kitchen and to the reception rooms.
The kitchen is a generous size and ideal for socialising, with access via the French doors to the enclosed terrace, which is ideal for entertaining family and friends in the summer. The kitchen has ample space for all the expected modern appliances, but also retains traditional farmhouse-style features, such as the real wood work surfaces, which gives this room a lovely rustic charm. There is also a useful separate utility room off the kitchen.
The open plan layout from the entrance hall (which has its own cloakroom) flows nicely into the dining area as well as the sitting room. Both are equally spacious and ideal for entertaining, each with their own character and charm. The sitting room is a lovely cosy room, benefitting from a fire place with log burner and French doors out to the garden.
The first floor is in keeping with the charm and character of the ground floor with four generous sized bedrooms maintaining a feeling of light and spaciousness throughout and presented to a high standard. The master bedroom is equipped with its own modern en-suite. There are three further bedrooms with a generous sized family bathroom.
Vendor's Insight - Hawkswood Barn is an attractive renovation which immediately captivated the present owners, Mike and Chris. They loved its tranquillity, inviting ambience and the location bordering the edge of woodland.
The location combines calm rural living with the many amenities available in nearby, pretty and historic Newport, only a ten minute drive away. There are a variety of independent shops, a weekly market, varied societies, and two excellent Grammar Schools. Commuters can easily access neighbouring Stafford and the M6 and Telford and the M54.
Mike says they prefer new properties and they moved in three years ago, when the restoration was completed. Delighted with the high quality finish of the barn, they decided to give an aesthetically pleasing addition to the garden, by building a wall around the perimeter. Using the same warm bricks as the main building, the wall, hung with baskets, is a most attractive feature.
Chris will miss the pleasure of living in Hawkswood. It is perfect to immediately access the woods and have a huge choice of dog walks, or wander along the pretty Millennium Way.
Further contentment is to sit at the dining table with a view to the woods as a superb backdrop. The generous space makes the perfect entertaining venue and an annual New Year party is enjoyed by friends and neighbours. Overnight guests are always impressed by the cathedral ceilings in the bedrooms.
The garden is a peaceful oasis, where you can follow the sun throughout the day. It is total relaxation to have a barbecue on the patio, accompanied by bird song. Chris and Mike like to travel and have ensured the garden is low maintenance.
Mike and Chris are moving to be closer to family, but are sure the next owners will love the house as they have.
Outside - The gardens are a particular feature of this property with outstanding views to the woodland in front. The garden is split into three different sections: the terrace from the kitchen which has potential to be made into a garden room; a further landscaped patio area ideal for following the sun throughout the day, as well as the easily maintainable lawned area. There is parking available to the side of the property as well as a garage.
Location - Situated in the hamlet of Broadhill and positioned on the Staffordshire/Shropshire border. The property lies within easy reach of the popular market towns of Newport, Telford and the county town of Stafford as well as the village of Gnosall. As well as being in a quiet location, the A518 is only minutes away and gives access to the aforementioned towns and villages.
