DESCRIPTIONUpper Postern Barn is an absolute gem of a property located on a private road in Tudeley. Converted in 1985 to create a gorgeous 4 bedroom, 2/3 reception room family home, the barn is situated on a slightly elevated position with open views over lovely rural countryside. The tasteful conversion retained many of the original features, with vaulted ceilings and exposed timbers evident throughout. Set in a plot of three quarters of an acre, with lovely gardens to front and rear, the property also benefits from a double garage and a stream-fed pond.
ACCOMMODATIONThe quarry-tiled entrance hall offers access to the large study and guest cloakroom to the right, and is open to a lovely seating area to the left. Door through to the principal reception room, with vaulted ceiling, exposed timbers and open fireplace. The room is lovely and bright, with French doors opening to the rear terrace. Double doors from the hallway lead to the spacious dining room, with an archway through to the charming 17ft kitchen with wood painted cabinetry and AGA. A separate utility room with door to the rear completes the ground floor of this well-proportioned home. The wooden crafted staircase leads up to the galleried landing, which overlooks the main reception room. To the right is the master bedroom with fitted wardrobes and en-suite and the three other bedrooms and family bathroom can be found at the other end of the open landing area. All four bedrooms have vaulted ceilings and exposed beams.
OUTSIDEThe property is accessed via a private road off Postern Lane, approached via a driveway which sweeps around to the front of the property and leads to a generous parking area in front of the double garage. There is an expanse of lawn to the front of the barn, with mature shrubs along the border. To the rear, the raised terrace is perfect for outdoor entertaining and overlooks the large garden which is mostly laid to lawn with mature planting and trees. The stream at the bottom of the garden acts as a natural boundary and there are glorious rural views from all aspects.
