OverviewSwattenden Barn is a very successful detached barn conversion set in a delightful location close to the picturesque and historic village of Cranbrook with its local amenities, shops, pubs, restaurants and schools. As you would expect from a barn conversion, it features exposed beams, vaulted ceilings and generous windows. The accommodation is arranged on 3 floors with the dining room having full height windows and an open oak staircase leading up to the first floor.
Ground FloorThe well-equipped kitchen has white cabinetry with a coloured tiled splashback and built-in appliances and there is plenty of space for an American style fridge-freezer and breakfast bar. An open fire with copper hood and brick surround is a stunning feature in the main sitting room. Other reception rooms include a second living room or television room with Jotul woodburner, a study and a games room. There is also a bedroom with a dedicated ensuite bathroom on the ground floor.
Upper FloorsThree bedrooms can be found on the first floor, including the master bedroom with its ensuite bathroom and plenty of eaves storage. There are 2 further bedrooms and a family bathroom. A fifth bedroom with bathroom and dressing room is on the second floor as well as lots of further eaves storage.
Additional InformationThis versatile barn also has an indoor swimming pool housed in a wonderful vaulted timbered room and at almost 14 metres long it is perfect for swimming lengths. The pool is accessed from the games room and there is an adjacent shower room and cloakroom. Other features of this splendid property include underfloor heating throughout the ground floor as well as an oil condensing boiler and wood pellet boiler.
Swattenden Barn would make a super family home and there is plenty of scope to utilise the accommodation to suit individual needs with the option of an annex if required.
OutsideThe property is approached through a gate with a block-paved area providing parking for many vehicles. Part of the separate garage has been converted into an office area although there is still enough space for 1 car. Gardens surround the property and are truly delightful with mature shrubs and trees. A huge terraced area is at the rear of the property, accessed from the pool and there is also a picturesque lake with a jetty surrounded by trees and aquatic plants.
It is possible to walk, via footpaths, across the fields to Cranbrook.
