This impressive barn conversion is the largest of three similar properties which have recently been completed by developers - Malbern Construction, to an excellent standard. ´Oldern House´ occupies a fine position and enjoys a delightful open aspect over adjoining farmland. The house stands within a good-sized garden and has the benefit of a substantial stone-flagged sun terrace, which adjoins its splendid lounge.
The accommodation, which has a high standard of appointment throughout, is warmed by an efficient high pressure oil fired central heating system complemented by sealed unit double-glazing and ample insulation. Underfloor heating is installed in all bathrooms and shower rooms.
Whilst described in further detail below, the property briefly comprises of a wide front door leading to entrance vestibule with cloaks/w.c. off. There is a splendid dining hall and a most impressive large main lounge with windows to two elevations affording stunning open views. Adjoining the lounge is a useful garden room/study, also with lovely views.

The kitchen includes a full range of quality, integrated appliances and is fitted out to a superb standard. There is then a good-sized utility room and further boiler room/store.
On the first floor, the master bedroom has a large en suite shower room with quality white suite and travertine wall tiling. The second bedroom/guest suite is similarly fitted and includes an en suite shower room of equal standard. There are then two further bedrooms and a main family bathroom with white suite and travertine tiling. The house is equipped throughout to a high standard with fitted furniture to most bedrooms. All fittings and joinery are of the highest quality. The house is carpeted as appropriate but includes much limestone-style Padova floor tiling.
Externally, there is ample car parking along with an open-fronted double garage, which is constructed of rustic oak.
