Manor Barn, AppletonAbout this home

Tucked away in the centre of this thriving village, behind a traditional stone built wall sits Manor Barn, nestled at the end of its long drive through over arching trees and sat overlooking a large pond. The original 17th Century barn was originally part of the Manor House and with its long slopping roof line, original bricks and stunning period timbers, Manor Barn is a wonderful piece of English rural history. Set in 1.27 acres of grounds, there are large lawned areas and a stunning garden where the swimming pool is located, with views of the village church. This really is a quintessential English village location and an escape from the outside world. The barn was converted in 1994 and provides over 4,000 sq ft of internal space. Highlights including the incredible double vaulted ceiling in the drawing room, with the study on the mezzanine, complete with its own log burner The kitchen and adjoining Orangery is also a superb open plan space that is very much the heart of the house.
