Fordley Barn is a wonderful Grade II listed converted barn which has been sympathetically remodelled by the current owners. Period features include original oak beams, vaulted ceilings and stone flooring. Off the reception hall is the impressive open plan drawing/dining room with dramatic vaulted ceiling and views out across the gardens to the forest from the floor-to-ceiling windows, one of which offers French doors out to the terrace. Situated above are two galleried reception rooms.

The house comes with four bedrooms, including the master bedroom and three further double bedrooms, and the property also comes with planning permission to erect a triple bay barn style oak garage.

Outside is the south-east facing terrace which overlooks the woodland, and running alongside the south elevation is a traditional garden border; the grounds slip away to a nearby stream and are principally laid to lawn. There are two tennis courts and the remainder of the grounds are divided into a potential paddock. The land to the south has a number of mature oaks.

Fordley Barn occupies an enviable rural position around half a mile from the village of Fernhurst which has a village hall, post office, tennis club and a primary school. Haslemere is just three miles and has a regular train service to London Waterloo.

The guide price is £1,250,000. For further information please contact Knight Frank on 01428 770 560 or visit www.knightfrank.co.uk.
