Has the recent Pandemic made you re-evaluate your priorities? Maybe you’re looking for a home that offers you flexible living whether you need to be on hand for a dependant relative. Perhaps you’ve reflected over the last few months and realised you need a different way of life and an alternative source of income is now on the

‘Gable End’ is a stunning barn conversion located in the picturesque village of Snitterfield with the added bonus that the property is not listed. Just a short stroll will get you into the heart of the village. Peace and tranquillity await your return as the barn is set on a quiet lane.

Approaching 3300 square feet there’s enough space for the largest of families. But the real uniqueness of the property is how the space can be used. The barn can be a spacious family home with the added option of using the two self-contained annexes for cohabiting family or separate letting opportunity which has generated a healthy income of approximately £15k per year.

Internally the beautifully presented and improved barn perfectly blends contemporary living whilst retaining a wealth of characterful original features such as vaulted ceilings, flagstone floors, exposed brick walls and beams. From the moment you set foot inside the property, you know you are in a special home. The hall is a perfect place to greet friends and family, from here you enter the elegant sitting room, the dual aspect full height windows not only offer charming views of the grounds but also flood the room with natural light. An imposing exposed brick inglenook fireplace with wood burning stove is a real focal point of the room and one imagines being mesmerised by a roaring fire in the winter months.
Undoubtedly, the heart of any home is the kitchen and ‘Gable End’ is no different. Originally the kitchen and dining room were separate rooms, but the sellers realised in order to make the space more practical they combined the rooms together. To create the ‘wow’ factor they decided to square off the corner and created a glass box with twin bifold doors and roof lantern over. The result is nothing short of breathtaking, the open plan kitchen/dining/family space hits the mark perfectly blending contemporary styling with period features making this room the showpiece of the property. The only regret is the owners wished they converted the space sooner. You often hear the phrase ‘dream kitchen’, this one certainly falls into that category.

From the kitchen, there’s a practical study/library and handy downstairs cloakroom off. From the study, there’s a door that gives access to the first annex.

The main house is arranged over three floors. To the first floor are four bedrooms in total, three of which are for the main house the fourth having the flexibility to either makeup part of the annex or be in the main house. Three out of the four bedrooms are impressive in size, three of which have tall vaulted ceilings with exposed beams and oversized skylights. Quite unusually one of the problems you may have is deciding which bedroom to use as your main bedroom. The rooms are equally proportioned and offer differing qualities. Option one is located on the first floor at the far end of the barn, a lovely room which has full-height windows affording views over the gardens, the walk-in wardrobe and refitted en-suite bathroom (with an enormous bath) offer the modern comforts. Option 2, is located on the same floor on the other side of the landing. Again this is a super room with tall vaulted ceilings and a large en-suite bathroom. Last but not least is option number 3. Located on the top floor - this ‘master suite’ is away from the rest of the house and provides privacy being the only bedroom on this level with a dressing room and en-suite shower room.

The additional accommodation is completely flexible and comprises of two annexes.

Annex 1
Is currently accessible from either the main barn or via its own entrance.
However, should you wish to make the annex fully self-contained then this could easily be achieved by blocking off the interconnecting access. If used as an annex the accommodation is arranged over two floors. To the ground floor is a good-sized sitting room with a downstairs shower room off. The sitting room leads to the charming kitchen/breakfast room, the access to outside is from here. Off the sitting room, there are stairs which lead to the gorgeous 17’9 bedroom. The lines in this room are superb the vaulted ceiling gives great volume and the exposed timbers add to what is already a fabulous room. Although there is not a garden with the annex there is private parking for one car.

Annex 2
Is also accessed via the main barn or via its own entrance, this is another wonderful space that would be ideal for either cohabiting family or separate letting opportunity whether that be holiday let or standard assured shorthold tenancy. This annex is on one level and offers, hall, separate WC, an excellent 20’ open plan kitchen/dining/living room. A key feature of this annex is a pretty courtyard garden which is enclosed and completely separate from the main barn. There is a double bedroom accessed from the living room, the bedroom has an en-suite with shower and basin. Like the main barn, the annex is bursting with character features such as tall vaulted ceilings and exposed beams and bricks. There are two further parking spaces for the annex.

Gardens & Grounds

Like the internals, the gardens are also beautifully maintained part walled garden. The barn sits slightly off centre to the entire plot giving gardens to the front and rear. The main garden is located at the front and is blessed with being south/west facing allowing you to enjoy the sun all day with distant views over open countryside. There’s an extensive patio laid using Indian Sandstone with a timber pergola having a heavy gauge perspex roof allowing you to enjoy the space all year round. There are manicured lawns, hedging with shrubs and herbaceous borders along with a range of fruit trees including; apple, pear and cherry. There is an attractive stepped water feature on the sun terrace. To the rear is a secondary sun terrace the perfect spot to sit back and relax after a hard day. Beyond this is a large pond with a timber bridge. Beyond this is a secluded chicken coup and brick built shed with access to the gravel driveway. If garaging is required there is enough space to build an oversized garage. The walled rear garden is attractive and is mainly laid with an artificial lawn having a number of raised brick flower beds.
