Property Description

Coombe Barton is a home brimming with unique styles, currently two 3 bedroom barns it could easily be converted back to one large 6 bedroom home, or kept as two, one could be a holiday let or guest accommodation. Set in a quiet rural location with garage, courtyard, garden and paddock.

A substantial barn conversation, currently divided into two dwellings, set in a secluded rural location. Coombe Barton is an extensive property formed by the conversion of barns in the 1980's. The property forms two sides of the original dwelling and comprises a three bedroom barn with adjoining three bedroom annexe. Parts of both properties require modernisation and refurbishment and provide extensive accommodation suitable for a variety of purposes. A paddock of approx half an acre and a garden provide opportunities for the purchasers to lead the 'good life' in this rural setting just 2 miles from the beaches.

A rustic painted sign points your way though the gates and down the driveway that serves Coombe Barton and it's two neighbours - the only other traffic consisting of your handful of neighbours in the hamlet.

Instantly sense the serenity of this secluded spot: a haven for wildlife, birds and walkers alike.

Coombe Barton is a home brimming with unique styles, welcoming living areas and quirky dining areas, ready to bend itself into whatever shape you require, enjoy the luxury of two distinct living rooms, each offering a different atmosphere and outlook.

Step up to the timber front door at the front of this home. Enter through the entrance hall which provides de-booting shelter for walkers returning from an invigorating walk down neighbouring lanes.

There are three double bedrooms, two bathrooms and a utility room on the ground floor. Upstairs, an enormous living room is the perfect space in which to entertain, looking out over the rolling countryside beyond.

Exposed painted woodwork covers the vaulted ceiling and a multi-fuel stove, ensures this vast space is kept warm and snug whatever the weather outside. There is also a spacious dining room and kitchen on this floor.

Enter the second barn though it's own front door. Inside, a delightful open plan sitting room/dining room is set about a cosy log-burning stove. Rustic wooden beams extend across both ends of the room, reflecting the country setting of this home. There are also three double bedrooms and 2 bathrooms in this barn.

Come to this property with an open mind because it's different to everything on the market and the location itself will steal your heart!

To make it a little easier there are 3 ways to use this super flexible home:

1 - As it is - as two 3 bedroom homes with all the quirks and loveliness just as you see it - maybe one side for a granny annexe or guest accommodation.
2 - As a home in 1 barn with the 2nd barn as an AirBnb or holiday let - its a pretty good earner for a lifestyle business
3 - Or you could have a little re-jig about and make something more traditional into a large family home.
