This recently converted barn, is set in tiny hamlet on the edge of the renowned Pentillie Estate, today this impressive and beautifully presented 4 bedroom family home has been converted by the current owners sympathetically, over a period of eight years. Extending to 2854 square feet and set in nearly an acre, the property is easy to maintain and efficient to run. The original barn is of architectural merit, and the owners have been sympathetic to the original character with stone arches and beams bearing the date stamp 1795.
