A unique modern oak frame barn style house built to the highest specification and a precise design to maximise energy efficiency minimising running costs, with stunning accommodation, open country views and a quiet elevated setting
The Barn was signed off in 2021 with a residual 10 year structural warranty – a beautiful aged oak frame with voluminous central galleried internal areas, all enclosed by brick and flint walls and heavy oak cladding. There is stylish light and airy accommodation with great attention to detail and exacting finishes throughout, designed to be as efficient as possible with over-engineered insulation and a highly efficient German air source heat pump delivering under floor heating throughout the ground floor, radiators to the first floor together with a mechanical ventilation heat recovery and air filtration system.

The village has a primary school, doctor’s surgery, church, modern village hall, a Post Office and shop, as well as two public houses. An excellent rail service to Waterloo is available from Whitchurch, about three miles distant. The nearby towns of Andover (about five miles) and Newbury also offer fast mainline rail services to Waterloo and Paddington respectively, together with a comprehensive range of shopping, educational and leisure facilities.
