Situated in the quiet rural hamlet of Addington, just outside of Nether Kellet village, this stunning detached 5 bedroom barn is the dream family home. Built in 2005 and substantially extended in 2010, this architect designed stone built barn provides spacious and modern living accommodation suited for the largest of families and fitted with a range of modern features from an integrated surround sound system to underfloor heating and B4RN hyper fast internet connectivity. Within the same ownership since it was completed, the property has been immaculately maintained, updated and extended incorporating a beautiful exposed green oak frame. There are three reception rooms on offer along with an open plan family kitchen area and five double bedrooms including a show stopping master bedroom with ensuite and two further bathrooms. The grounds that surround the property offer a private cocoon for all the family to enjoy with a large drive, double garage and a spacious south facing rear garden complete with a flagged patio, large lawn raised decked seating area and play area.
Despite the rural setting, The Barn is conveniently located under 3 miles from M6 access and just 5 miles to Lancaster City. A full range of local amenities can be found in Carnforth Market town to include supermarkets, doctors, dentist, shops, cafes and a well connected train station. The neighbouring villages of Nether Kellet and Halton each offer a wonderful primary school and active village hall whilst the property also sits within the catchment for the Boys & Girls Grammar Schools in Lancaster.
The timber entrance gates open onto a private tarmac drive to the front of the property which affords plentiful parking along with access into the detached stone built double garage with integrated workshop. The flagged path leads to the front entrance with double solid oak doors framed by an open oak built porch, a fittingly grand and charming entrance into this well designed home. The doors open up into the large entrance hall, with a WC and boiler room leading off to the right, and the main oak staircase to the left. Directly ahead, double doors lead into the large living room which, left open, immediately draws your attention to the stunning exposed green oak frame, in a room flooded with natural light from full length windows, french doors and velux windows. From the entrance hall, there is also access into a cloaks cupboard, and into the family room to the left. The limestone flagged floors are in keeping with the traditional barn aesthetics and quality oak features are seen throughout the property from the charming latch solid oak doors, Ted Todd Engineered Oak boarded floors, to the deep oak window sills and skirting. The living room is a large and open space, offering a triple aspect with lovely views over the rear garden and french doors opening onto the stone flagged patio. As you approach the feature limestone fireplace with log burning stove, a double height feature space is revealed, with the chimney breast extending high up to the pitch of the roof with the dramatic exposed green oak trusses on show and electrically openable velux windows. Above is a glass Juliette balcony looking out from the master bedroom above and the room benefits from an integrated surround sound system, atmospheric lighting and underfloor heating.
The entrance hall leads into what was the original build of the property, leading into a fantastic and cosy family room centred around another log burner within a stone surround. Open doorways to either side of the fireplace lead into the double height dining room, a space flooded with natural light from the dual aspect of tall windows that lead up to the angled ceiling and mezzanine balcony landing above. The dining room is a great space for formal entertaining, flowing perfectly from the family room and into the adjoining open plan kitchen.
Off the dining room is a useful study with additional understairs storage cupboard, ideal for those looking to work from home who will further benefit from the B4RN hyper-fast internet connectivity at the property.
The heart of any home, families will be delighted with the open plan design of this generously proportioned kitchen, affording space for a more informal dining setting and family chill out area. The kitchen is fitted with SieMatic units finished with solid granite worktops. Integrated NEFF appliances include two double ovens, dishwasher and a five ring gas hob with extractor over. Separate matching fitted units with integrated Miele larder style fridge and freezer. To the living area of the room, natural light flows throughout thanks to the double height space with integrated roof glazing and french doors that open onto the patio at the rear. The floors are finished with attractive slate tiles with underfloor heating that extend into the adjoining utility and boot room with matching SieMatic units, granite worktops, Franke Villeroy and Boch double pot sink with mixer tap, integrated Neff microwave and plumbing for washing machine and dryer. This is the perfect space for knocking off muddy boots and rainy coats after enjoying a walk across the local countryside, with an external stable type back door leading onto the drive. Leading from the utility room is a further WC and boiler room.
Two staircases lead to the first floor, with the main stairs leading up from the entrance hall bringing you out onto a bright landing with a velux window with loft access above. The large master bedroom makes the most of the stunning exposed green oak trusses. It is a bright and open room filled with light from full length glazing to one side incorporating french doors with a glazed juliette balcony looking out over the rear patio and garden. Sliding opaque glass doors reveal an internal glass juliette balcony that looks out over the living room below. Boasting very generous proportions, there is also a choice of built in storage and a tasteful ensuite. The ensuite is finished with striking Spanish slate tales and offers a selection of Duravit sanitaryware to include his and hers vanity sinks, a contemporary freestanding bath and a walk in rain shower. Two further double bedrooms share the use of a Jack N Jill bathroom with a walk in shower, underfloor heating and quality Travertine tiling to finish.
Walking along the mezzanine landing that looks out over the dining room, this leads to the secondary staircase down into the kitchen and an inner hall that can be closed off to create a fantastic guest suite out of the remaining two double bedrooms and a fully tiled family bathroom.
The Barn sits within a generously proportioned plot, offering the perfect garden for all the family to safely enjoy. To the front, the private gated drive affords ample parking as well as access into the stone built double garage with an internal store. Stone flagged paths lead around either side of the property where you can find a useful log store. The secure rear garden is bounded by tall shrubbery to offer a private haven. There is a large flagged patio accessed from both the living room and kitchen, perfect for alfresco dining in the summer time, with the south facing aspect ideal for enjoying the best of the weather. The raised decking area proves as the perfect spot to unwind with a glass of wine in the evening and there is even a pretty summer house and bark chipped play area for the children. The spacious lawn and shrubbery beds prove relatively low maintenance which is ideal for those with busy lives.
