Highclere Barn is a very impressive converted barn that has been meticulously converted by the current owners to provide a stunning family home. On entering the property there is an expansive hall with feature wine rack, beautiful and cavernous sitting room with oak flooring throughout and bi-fold doors onto a large south facing terrace. There is a dining area, again with a vaulted ceiling, which in turn leads to the impressive kitchen/breakfast area featuring wooden wall shelves, an electric AGA and central island unit with quartz worktops. This fabulous space also has access to a second, west facing terrace via French doors, as well as further bi-fold doors out to the front of the barn and garden. Next to the kitchen is a useful utility room with pull down ladder accessing excellent storage space.

The principal bedroom accommodation is to the northern end of the barn and consists of a fabulous master suite with dressing area and luxury en suite shower room, 2 further ground floor bedrooms served by a beautiful bathroom complete with free standing bath and separate shower cubicle. Stairs from the inner hall lead up to two further double bedrooms, a family bathroom and good storage spaces incorporating a large airing cupboard.

The property is approached via an electric wooden 5 bar gate, beyond which is a drive leading down to a large gravel parking area for multiple vehicles and a timber framed double carport and adjoining garage. The garden is primarily laid to lawn interspersed with several trees and illuminated at night with a number of uplighters and downlighters creating a lovely ambience.

The next steps...

Before making an offer on a property you will want to consider your financial situation, your income and outgoings.

Will you finance the purchase of your next property from the sale of an existing property which can put you in a chain, arrange a mortgage through your bank or buy the property outright.
To help you finance your next property purchase, we have a long established relationship with an independent mortgage broker who can discuss your situation with you.

Remember that having a 'mortgage decision in principle' can make you a more attractive buyer when you make an offer on a property. Contact our mortgage advisers for free, no obligation and impartial advice.
Some advantages of a broker are:

  • They do all the legwork for you, working on your behalf with the lender
  • They compare wholesale mortgage rates from a large number of banks and lenders all at once
  • Wholesale interest rates can be lower than retail (bank branch) interest rates
  • You get more loan options because they work with numerous banks and lenders
  • Brokers can finance tricky deals because of their knowledge and various lending partners
  • Are typically easier to get in contact with, less bureaucratic.

However with your bank maybe able to:

  • Build off existing relationship (discounts if you have a checking/saving account)
  • You may already know the banker who will handle your mortgage
  • Perhaps more trustworthy, more accountable than a smaller shop
  • Lower interest rates in some cases
  • Ability to add mortgage to existing banking profile and make automatic payments from linked account.

When it comes to making an offer on a property a bit of negotiation is to be expected, however don't offer so little that you end up in a lengthy negotiation process, as you might lose the property altogether if someone else makes a higher bid.

If other offers have been made on a property we aren't legally able to tell you what they are, but we may indicate if they were close to the asking price.
