* A stone barn conversion which we understand was converted in 1999.

* Located in a Conservation Area.

* A charming property with features including flagstone floor, beams, exposed stonework, high pitched ceilings and wood floors.

* The private driveway and exceptionally large parking and turning space is approached via a section of shared driveway over which there is a right of way in favour of Springfield Barn. The private area starts where the more recent tarmac driveway has been laid and there is a remote controlled electric gate. There is a second vehicular access from the B4100 leading via a double gate which was formerly a farm access. There is off road parking space for two more vehicles in front of the gate.

* Beyond the large frontage there are outbuildings which were formerly open bay garages and now provide storage/workshop space and could be converted into a home office or even an annexe subject to planning permission and Listed Buildings Consent.

* The gardens include paved terraces to the front, beds and borders, whilst the main area lies to the rear, the majority of which was purchased from a neighbouring land owner and must not be changed into formal gardens as part of an agricultural restriction but can be left as grass, wild flowers and orchard with fruit trees as it currently is. From the top of the garden there are spectacular views across countryside across a small valley.

Whilst not registered as a Listed building Springfield Barn is a Curtilage Listed Building as it was formerly part of a Grade II Listed Building known as Springfield House.

All mains services are connected with the exception of gas. The Worcester Bosch oil fired boiler is located in a cupboard off the hall.
