Little Barn dates back to circa 1890 and formerly was used as a Pig Barn for the farmhouse Two Barns next door. It was converted approximately in the mid 1980s and has subsequently been the subject of further updating and redecoration throughout by the present owners. The property is presented in excellent order throughout, located in the highly sought after Rushmoor Lane within easy walking of schools, amenities and fabulous walks.
In addition, the property benefits from planning permission to create a unique and spacious home via residential conversion of the Detached barn, addition of first floor to the existing dwelling and linking of the two structures at first floor level.
Opportunities such as this don't come up very often in the village and you are strongly advised to book a viewing.
