Cherry Green Barns, Cherry Green
A most impressive five bedroom Barn conversion forming part of an exclusive private gated courtyard development located in a picturesque setting close to the sought after village of Westmill. Lovely garden, Double garage.
Originally completed in 2004, Cherry Green Barns is a lovely development of barn conversions in a delightful, gated courtyard setting adjoining countryside yet only a few minutes drive off of the A10 and the pretty market town of Buntingford.
The property cleverly combines original features including exposed timbers, brickwork and vaulted ceilings with a contemporary feel that all contribute to this very well proportioned family home. The rooms are all generous sizes and the layout works really well for todays needs and for those who work from home.
The present owners have been here since it was converted and have carried out various improvements, the most notable being the hand made Oak doors and architraves found throughout the ground floor rooms. The property also benefits from underfloor central heating to both the ground and first floor. Outside is a good size secluded garden that has been beautifully planted and provides colour throughout the year. A driveway provides parking for two cars and there is further parking for two large cars in the spacious double garage/barn.
The village of Westmill is about a mile away and is one of the most sought after places to live in the area. It has an excellent pub/restaurant, The Sword in hand, a tea room and church together with an active social community. Footpaths and bridleways are found throughout the area and one can walk for miles through beautiful gently undulating countryside. For the golfer, nearby East Herts Golf Club provides a first class challenging golf course.
As one approaches the house, the front door is set into a large glazed screen that leads into the impressive dining hall. The floor is tiled in an attractive Limestone and to the rear is a further large full height glazed screen and door leading into the garden. Stairs rise up to the first floor and galleried landing. There is a downstairs cloakroom/WC, attractively fitted with a contemporary suite. Doors lead from the dining hall into the good size kitchen/breakfast room. A well fitted kitchen with granite worktops providing space for fridge freezer and range cooker along with an integrated dishwasher. Windows overlook the garden to the rear and the courtyard to the front. This is a really good size family kitchen with ample room for a table and chairs. Off the kitchen is a well fitted utility room with units and granite worktops to match, space for a washing machine and tumble dryer and a window to the front aspect. The Limestone floor continues through the kitchen, utility room and cloakroom. On the other side of the dining hall the sitting room can be accessed through two sets of glazed Oak double doors. Within there is a large red brick chimney breast with wood burning stove along with windows to the front and rear aspects, wall light points and a door opening into the family room. The family room overlooks the lane and countryside to the side aspect and is another well proportioned room that is large enough to be divided into two rooms if needed. The entirety of the downstairs is served by underfloor heating. Moving upstairs, the galleried landing is a good size and overlooks the dining hall. The roof is vaulted and lined with timber and there is a library ladder that allows access to one of the large loft storage areas which are suitable for conversion if required (STP). The master bedroom enjoys a double aspect, overlooks countryside and is complimented by an en suite bathroom. The guest bedroom overlooks the garden to the rear and enjoys an en suite shower room. There are three further bedrooms, two doubles and a single that is presently used as a study. In addition, there is also a family bathroom. The entirety of the upstairs is served by underfloor heating.
Approached at the front the house benefits from a driveway that is bordered by shrubs. The rear garden is a delight and a good size. It enjoys a large patio to the rear of the house beyond which is the lawn and well stocked herbaceous borders, numerous shrubs, trees, and hedges all of which have been cleverly planned to provide interest, colour and privacy throughout the year. At the foot of the garden is a further patio area with summer house. An oil tank is hidden away and there is a useful garden shed. Opposite the house is a spacious double garage/barn with electric doors, light and power and is large enough to accommodate two large cars along with 'loft' storage.
