Clock House Road, Little Burstead
Price £999,000 - Available
Boasting a discreet situation within a farmyard setting in the picturesque village of Little Burstead, this exceptional home with eco-friendly credentials has been painstakingly converted from a derelict agricultural building by the present owners who instructed well respected GI Hutton barn specialists in 2015,
This former store was subject to a comprehensive and exhaustive program of conversion with an emphasis on the sourcing of appropriate, top-quality materials, successfully preserving the historic character of the building. Thought to date from 18-19th Century and originally part of neighbouring Bullers Farm, the property enjoys views over a paddock opposite with countryside walks across the surrounding landscape on its doorstep, while the bustling town of Billericay with a range of amenities and mainline railway station is just a short drive away.
Approached via a gravel drive and offering a first glimpse of the adjoining paddock, the property occupies a generously sized and well-maintained plot with the opportunity of stabling on a livery basis together with use of equestrian facilities being available by separate private negotiation with the owner of Bullers Farm.
This outstanding home boasts a luxurious internal specification with high-end appointments, integrated seamlessly with carefully sourced materials, preserving the charming character of the original architecture whilst providing a wealth of classically understated luxury. In addition to the lovely breakfast kitchen, the property features a wonderful, individually designed living space and three separate reception rooms, versatile enough to meet the needs of any owner, the open plan galleried landing and glass panel stairs gives this barn an added level of spaciousness to the design.
Three unique and well-spaced first floor bedrooms, enjoy the use of an en suite facility together with a four-piece bathroom and just like the ground floor central living space, all rest beneath the dramatic pitch and substantial timbers of The Barn`s roof, the result of which is a stunning lifestyle environment for any family to embrace throughout the seasonal changes of the year.
