Full Details

The barn is widely believed to have been constructed circa 1758 as a dairy barn serving the nearby farmhouse. The hay barn next door was built at approximately the same time, both being impressive structures hinting at the importance and stature of the Village farmhouse.

Set back from the road that runs through Seighford, the barn fronts a private courtyard with detached barn to the front which has been converted to garaging with a large room spanning the first floor, over the three garage bays which open into the courtyard.

The barn itself has been tastefully converted and provides a good degree of flexibility with two ground floor bedrooms served by a smartly fitted bathroom, an en-suite master bedroom on the first floor and a fourth bedroom to the front of the property reached by the Minstrel Gallery overlooking the impressive sitting room.

Huge care has been taken to retain the character of the building with impressive exposed timber perlins and trusses demonstrating the craftsmanship used to construct the barn. The sitting room in particular is a stunning space with full height vaulted ceiling and stairs rising at either end, one to a minstrels gallery, the other to the master suite. An impressive log burning stove in an inglenook fireplace adds yet another charming feature.

 

Beyond the sitting room is a rear hallway with utility room off and the kitchen at the rear of the property, overlooking the rear garden.

 

Externally, the courtyard to the front provides plentiful parking, gated from the separate front area of gravelled parking with two entrances from the road. The courtyard serves only Cesterforde and as such offers an opportunity to provide garden to the garage building if an annexe was desirable, subject to planning.

 

The rear gardens are expansive, with a mix of seating areas, shaped lawns, mature and well stocked borders. An orchard with mature fruit trees leads to a wider grassed area, sloping gently to the brook that forms the rear boundary.

 

The village is conveniently placed for access to the M6 motorway and county town of Stafford a short distance away providing regular intercity services to London. The village has a well-regarded primary school, church and pub that is share held by the villagers. A bus service connects the property with both Stafford and Stone.

The property is on mains drainage.
