Property Description

Lodge Barn is located down a gated entrance, situated opposite the church in Metfield, in which you are welcomed onto the gravel driveway with off road parking and access to the double cart lodge. The barn is timber cladded with wooden double glazed windows and provides a unique feel to the property.
The front door opens in to a very spacious entrance hall with a cupboard for storage and cloakroom with toilet and basin. The utility room has direct access to the garden and is where the oil boiler and water softener are located, as well as space for further appliances.
One of the things that first strikes you about the property is the space and also the natural flow of accommodation as you move from room to room.
The kitchen has a range of shaker style base and wall units and integrated appliances such as the double oven and hob, dishwasher and fridge. The conservatory leads off the kitchen, with additional access from the dining room and hall and is perfectly placed to overlook the beautiful rear garden through the French doors.
The open plan sitting room/dining room is divided by the central brick chimney, boasting a cosy wood burning stove. The floor to ceiling windows, vaulted ceiling, and double doors out to the conservatory means that this spacious room is flooded with plenty of natural light.
Off the hallway you have access to all three bedrooms. The master bedroom is a large double room overlooking the rear aspect with an en-suite that boasts a double shower, toilet and basin. Bedroom two is another large double room that overlooks the side aspect, whilst bedroom three is a small double that is currently used as an office that also overlooks the side aspect. The family bathroom has a bath, with a shower over, toilet and basin. The airing cupboard houses the hot water tank and is shelved for extra storage, in addition to the separate storage cupboard in the hallway.
Outside, located down a gated gravel driveway you have plenty of off road parking for several vehicles and access to the double bay cart lodge. The cart lodge is currently split in to two, with one side being used as a garage and the other side as a workshop/log store, with additional storage in the eaves above. The garden is a beautiful tranquil area that wraps around the barn, with lots of different areas, such as the raised fruit and vegetable beds, lawn, pond, potting shed, garden shed and a couple of lovely seating areas.
This property has been well loved since the current owners built the barn in 2005 and is ready for any new buyer to move straight in to.
