An opulent deceptively spacious 4000 sq ft barn conversion located in a beautiful country lane setting with 0.9 Acres (stls) and stunning views over countryside
What We Say
This family home genuinely is a Tardis and has to be seen to be fully appreciated. With just under 4000 sq ft of accommodation on offer it really does offer a bang for your buck and has been converted to a superb standard. Situated behind private gates, the property offers seclusion with potential for entry level equestrian use and with Eppingâ€™s underground station situated just a short drive away, it will appeal to any discerning buyers who require easy access into London.
What The Owner Says
I have thoroughly enjoyed overseeing the conversion, it has been a fantastic location to bring my son up in and the self contained annexe has been an enormous benefit with my mother residing there. I was planning on staying here long term but my circumstances have changed and I have decided to re-locate to a family memberâ€™s property on the South coast, enabling me to offer the property for sale with no onward chain.
