Flint Barn is an inspired barn conversion reflecting architectural influences from the Victorian period, harmonising with the early Victorian origins of the barn itself.
This former threshing barn formed part of the Victorian ‘model’ farm at Honington belonging to the Euston Estate.
It was skilfully converted in 2007 to form an elegant dwelling being Victorian styled with modern kitchen and sanitary fittings and all a 21st century home requires.
The agents Robinson Portfolio say: “This outstanding barn conversion is one of the most impressive we have seen, with a skilful contrast between the preserved aesthetic appearance of half-metre thick brick and flint walls and the inspired Victorian styled interior, with 21st Century layout and design.”
Technology has been invisibly incorporated with under floor heating beneath oak floors, low-voltage lighting, ample media outlets and double glazed windows and screen glazing casting plentiful sunlight.
The 4.5m by 3.3m reception area is open plan to the kitchen, dining and drawing room, with vaulted ceiling, exposed framework and brick and flint walls rising to the exposed wall plate with first floor gallery.
The modern 4.7m by 4.3m kitchen has a comprehensive range of base and wall units, and integrated dishwasher.
There is a Rangemaster cooker with two ovens, pan drawer, gas hob with wok burner, halogen plate warmer, glass return and matching glass and stainless steel hood with light.
There is a separate 6.1m by 4.8m dining area and 5.7m by 6.8m drawing room.
There is also a utility room and a study.
There is a 3.6m by 4.2m ground floor bedroom with built-in wardrobe and en suite shower room and toilet.
Upstairs is another 4.7m by 3.7m bedroom with an en suite bathroom and vaulted ceiling with collars, perlins, principal rafters and substantial tie beam.
The other two bedrooms are 4.7m by 3m and 5.8m by 2.6m. The latter has a vaulted ceiling with exposed roof truss, exposed tie beams and red brick and flint wall rising from the drawing room.
The upstairs bedrooms also have built-in wardrobes.
These two bedrooms are served by a family bathroom which also has a vaulted ceiling with rafters and collars.
It also has a modern, freestanding roll top bath on timber cradles, with centre mixer tap.
The rear garden faces west, and there is an area of easily maintained grass enclosed by tall brick wall.
The main garden is to the east, so it captures the sun all day, with a terrace directly outside the reception hall and study. It is a professionally landscaped garden.
