Willow Barn is located in the hamlet of Pamber End which hosts the Queens College Arms public house and the ever popular The Priory primary school, just to the north of Basingstoke. In the nearby village of Bramley, there is a station, a bakery and a village shop and nearby Tadley has a sufficient range of facilities to cater to all day-to-day requirements. Basingstoke itself offers a comprehensive range of leisure, recreational and education needs, and the property is also within easy access of both Reading and Newbury. There are some excellent private schools nearby including Daneshill, Sherfield, Cheam, Wellington and Bradfield.
Commuting is excellent with Junction 6 of the M3 being within a short drive at Basingstoke, and with the mainline station in Basingstoke providing fast and frequent services to London Waterloo from 45 minutes.
Willow Barn is a converted Grade II Listed detached barn believed to have Elizabethan origins which stands within its own secluded gardens backing onto open fields. The split-level accommodation is delightfully quirky and spacious extending to about 2294 sq.ft. which is full of character with a wealth of exposed beams and some lovely vaulted ceilings. Unusually for a converted barn, it has lots of big windows so the accommodation is light and airy and a number of the rooms enjoy views over the garden to the fields beyond.
On the ground floor, the front door opens to the large reception hall from which the staircase rises and turns to the first floor. There is a study and cloakroom off. The part-vaulted drawing room has a large fireplace with log burning stove and three sets of French doors opening to the rear terrace and garden. The dual aspect dining room has a large opening to the family room and steps lead down to the vaulted kitchen. This has been refitted with a comprehensive range of units including a large island and there is a utility room with a larder/cloakroom off.
On the first floor there is a multi-level landing with steps leading up (and then down) to a superb vaulted master bedroom with steps down to the luxurious en-suite bathroom. There are three further bedrooms two with open views and the family bathroom.
The detached annexe has an entrance lobby from which the staircase rises to the first-floor bedroom, whilst on the ground floor there is an open-plan kitchen/living room and a shower room. This could provide two excellent offices for homeworking.
For further details please refer to the floorplan.
The property is set well back and is approached over a long, gated gravel driveway with provides ample parking in front of the property. The gardens are level and laid primarily to lawn with a number of mature trees and various shrubs and flower beds and a gravel terrace adjacent to the French doors.
