A lovely converted barn in the Chiltern Hills, which occupies an outstanding elevated setting in the small hamlet of Hailey. The barn, which sits in mature gardens of almost half an acre, enjoys a glorious panoramic view to the south and west across the meadows and woodland of the valley opposite. The room arrangement takes advantage of the impressive wooden framed interior structure and the galleried reception room with its three large south-facing windows looking out over the extended views. A large vaulted dining/reception hall occupies the centre of the barn and is open to ridge height with access into the large and comprehensively fitted family kitchen/breakfast room. There are 4 bedrooms: the master bedroom is en suite, with a further bathroom and a shower room.
Situated in an area designated as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, Hailey is a small and attractive hamlet set above the village of Ipsden, which lies at the bottom of the valley. Together with Ipsden, the hamlet has a 12th century church, post office, nursery school and the renowned King William IV pub and restaurant. The historic market town of Wallingford is only 4 miles distant and provides excellent shopping facilities including Waitrose and farmers’ market whilst Henley on Thames, Reading and Oxford are all within a half hour drive. Train services to London are provided in Reading, Goring and Didcot, all within an easy drive.
The gardens lie to three sides of the barn. They include a parterre garden with lavender enclosed by box hedgerows, a south facing wall enclosed terrace and a large expanse of shaped lawn with mature trees and well-stocked beds and borders.
A detached timber clad garage with clay tile roof is set back from the driveway with power, light and water connections.
