Developed in the late 1980’s, Ivy Tree Barn is an unlisted period barn conversion occupying a wonderful rural setting. Abutting side on to a minor country lane, the barn is nestled in a shallow valley which is roughly equidistant between the villages of Kersey and Whatfield.
Internally, the welcoming entrance hall offers full-height glazing overlooking a private courtyard to the rear (west) giving much natural light, with stairs rising to a mezzanine landing. The versatile reception space extends to a magnificent central sitting room with twin aspect views over the gardens and a focal open fireplace. To the north end of the barn is a well-proportioned kitchen/breakfast room which is fitted on two walls, with a separate utility room. In addition to two further well-proportioned reception rooms which overlook the enclosed courtyard, the remaining ground floor space comprises an integral double garage which gives access to the billiard/games room. Served by 2 bathrooms, the first floor provides 4 double bedrooms which all provide delightful views over adjacent countryside.
The principal garden is to the front (east) which is approached over an extensive driveway with a retaining wall leading up to a large expanse of lawn, interspersed with mature silver birch trees. Clearly defined by established field hedges, the garden is very well-maintained and private, which back onto open countryside.
To the west is an enclosed and sheltered courtyard providing good privacy from the neighbouring properties which is defined by a wall to the southern boundary. In all, the property covers some 0.6 acres.
