Crosslanes Farm Barn is an exceptional oak-framed barn designed by the Winchester architect Huw Thomas located in the Hampshire hamlet of Ashton.

The property provides spacious open-plan accommodation in the main barn, featuring a superb drawing room, which is flanked on one side by a raised dining room on one side and a less formal sitting room on the opposite side. The main area of the barn has vaulted ceilings and a grand central brick double fireplace. Glazed doors lead out to the rear garden and courtyard. The kitchen has been beautifully finished with a range of bespoke units.

The barn has three bedrooms, including the master bedroom suite. A link from the main barn leads through to Rose Cottage which currently provides separate accommodation in the form of a reception/dining hall kitchen, sitting room, master bedroom with adjoining bathroom, two further bedrooms and a shower room.
