The Great Barn is a fantastic Grade II listed barn

conversion dating back to 1634. In 1992 it was

completely restored and converted into a family

home. The property is beautifully presented with

the original beams exposed throughout. The

spacious and flexible accommodation is light

with many rooms being dual or triple aspect.

The drawing room is exceptional with full height

vaulted ceilings exposing the original A framed

beams and a magnificent fireplace with built

in seating and a chimney reaching up to the

ceiling, housing a jet master fire. The dining/

sitting room has doors opening out to both the

front and back gardens and has a hatch to the

kitchen. The kitchen/breakfast room has a gas

fired Aga, and a good range of cupboards with

woodwork surfaces and leads to the utilty area.

Downstairs there is also a cloak room and guest

bedroom with en suite bathroom.

On the first floor is an impressive master

bedroom with fitted wardrobes and an en suite

shower room. There are three further double

bedrooms, a family bathroom, airing and linen

cupboards and a walk in attic storage room.

The current owners converted two of the

integrated garages into a fantastic self contained

one bedroom annexe with a fully fitted open plan

kitchen/reception room, bathroom and bedroom

with stunning views over the local countryside.

The remaining garage could easily be converted

to provide further accommodation to either the

house or annexe, subject to planning permission.

The Great Barn is situated in the popular village

of Downton which is located on the edge of the

New Forest and about 7 miles from Salisbury.

The village provides an excellent range of day to

day facilities which include a Co-op, post office,

butchers, gift shop, café, library, pharmacy, a

doctor's surgery and a dentist. There are also

over 32 clubs and societies. There is a more

comprehensive range of shopping and cultural

facilities in Salisbury along with a main line

railway station with direct trains to London

Waterloo from 90 minutes.

The New Forest National Park provides a

wonderful variety of leisure activities which

include walking and riding. The south coast

provides access to numerous beaches and water

sport facilities.

The area is renowned for its excellent schools

including the village primary school which

was recently rated outstanding, and also the

Trafalgar secondary school. Salisbury has

retained its grammar schools for boys and girls.

Private schools include Chafyn Grove, Leaden

Hall and Godolphin in Salisbury, whilst there

is also the King Edward VI in Southampton;

Hampshire Collegiate and Embley Park near

Romsey and Sandle Manor in Fordingbridge.

The property is approached through a five bar

gate where there is parking for several cars

on a gravel drive with access to the integrated

garage that houses the gas boiler. The

beautifully landscaped garden wraps around

the property where the owners have cleverly

created little havens. A raised terrace lies

adjacent to the house with a secluded lawn area

behind. To the right of the house is a further

lawned area with deep well stocked borders.

To the rear and leading to the far side is a well

established and large vegetable and fruit garden

and a green house.
