Built in 1902 and converted by the current owners in 2012, Riverside Barn provides flexible family accommodation over two floors.

The house which enjoys underfloor heating throughout the entire ground floor is entered through a wooden front door into the welcoming entrance hall with a stone tiled floor and stairs leading up to the first floor. The inviting fitted kitchen is the real heart of this family home with a Belling range cooker, an excellent range of wall and floor cabinets with wooden work tops, an inset double Belfast sink, wine fridge, space and plumbing for an American style fridge/freezer and tiled floor. A step from the kitchen leads down into the impressive dining room with oak floor boards and exposed oak beams. On one side of the room French doors lead out onto the terrace and to the other side of the room a door leads into the garden room making it the ideal set up for entertaining. The oak framed garden room allows lots of natural light to fill the room and is the perfect spot to sit and admire views across the garden. The dining room leads through to the sitting room. The sitting room has the benefit of a brick surround fireplace with an oak mantelpiece, a slate hearth and woodburner inset. To either side of the fireplace there are two windows with window seats beneath. Two sets of French doors lead out onto the front terrace. The snug is also situated on the ground floor. This is an impressive room with a vaulted ceiling, exposed beams, a tiled floor and French doors leading out to one side of the property. A spiral staircase leads from this room up to the double aspect study which provides the most stunning elevated views across the surrounding countryside and the meandering River Avon.

A utility room with an excellent range of floor and wall cabinets, an inset double sink, space and plumbing for a washing machine, a built cupboard and tiled floor along with a separate downstairs cloakroom completes the accommodation on the ground floor.

An oak staircase leads up to the first floor and onto the oak floor landing. The master bedroom is of excellent proportions and at the far end of the room a step leads down into the en suite shower room. At the far end of the first floor there is a double aspect guest suite with en suite shower room which enjoys lovely views over the grounds of Riverside Barn and the surrounding countryside.

Two further bedrooms and a family bathroom finished to an exceptionally high standard completes the accommodation on the first floor. The family bathroom has a free standing bath, walk in shower, wash hand basin, low level WC and heated towel radiator.

The delightful timber clad one bedroom annexe is accessed from the gravel parking area and provides an excellent investment as a rental opportunity or alternatively as separate accommodation for a family member. The annexe comprises an open plan kitchen/sitting room with an island unit with breakfast bar to one side, utility room, shower room and double bedroom. The annexe is light and airy thanks to the full height windows along the front of the building. Double doors at the back of the annexe lead out onto an enclosed patio where views over the garden and River Avon can be enjoyed.

The approach to Riverside Barn is over a part shared driveway and the property is accessed through red brick pillars onto a gravel driveway with a turning circle. Along the red brick boundary wall is a line of leylandii trees and rhodedendron's.

The main garden has been divided by wrought iron parkland fencing to create different 'rooms' in the garden. The immediate gardens surrounding Riverside Barn are mainly laid to gravel with mature shrub borders and incorporates a slate terrace off the dining and sitting room. The main gardens are predominantly laid to lawn and sweep down towards the river. At the far end of the gardens there is a small orchard, vineyard and a wildfowl enclosure with a pond. A double garage with power and light adjoins the annexe.
