A beautiful & historic barn conversion, occupying a stunning edge of village position, with a separate two storey annexe, generous gardens and huge potential. EPC rating E.
DESCRIPTION Blackberry Barn is nestled within a clutch of individual period home and Barn conversions fringing the popular village of Congresbury. Backing onto open fields the property is built of honeyed local stone under a beautiful clay tiled roof and exudes rustic charm and character. The main barn comprises a stunning vaulted living room with exposed timber beams, fantastic minstrel's gallery and an imposing inglenook fireplace. The warm Oak floor and exposed stone and brick walls add a fabulous sense of character and the French doors give a glimpse of the enchanting rear garden.
To the far end of the living room lies the kitchen with its traditional shaker style kitchen units, Belfast sink and space for a Rangemaster type cooker. There is ample space for a family sized breakfast table and the smart polished travertine floor and exposed timber beams continue the theme of immense character. Also on the ground floor is two good sized bedrooms and a family bathroom thus making the property well suited to buyers who require single level living.
Accessed via an open plan staircase, the first floor has a wonderful Minstrels gallery which is perfectly suited as a home office and the Master bedroom which comes complete with a well appointed en-suite bathroom.
A outstanding further benefit to the property is a self contained detached one bedroom annexe which could be utilised for a dependent relative or indeed be rented out either as a separate long term let or as is so popular in current times as an air B & B.
Without question one of the most appealing aspects of Blackberry Farm is its large and incredibly private rear garden which is simply delightful. There is a large level stone terrace to the rear of the main barn which also continues through to provide pedestrian access between the main barn and the annexe. Mature borders planted with small trees, shrubs and fruit trees add to the excellent privacy and there are several useful sheds a vegetable plot in need of some regeneration and two raised ponds.
