Everything anyone could want from an English country home is contained in a property for sale in the delightful village of Balsall Common.
Exposed beams, character in abundance, delightful gardens and views across countryside are all part and parcel of the charm at Emscot Barn, in Meeting House Lane, a 16th century part-thatched barn conversion with three bedrooms and a host of superb features.
It has an imposing frontage and breathtaking, yet highly practical interior, which is centrally heated.
It has a shared tarmac approach to the private gravel driveway and a large timber door which opens into the entrance hall with ceramic tiled flooring and exposed timbers.
An archway leads into the dining room, which has a fantastic vaulted ceiling with original timbers and a further arch into the living room where the focal point is the centrally-mounted brickbuilt fireplace with a stone hearth and mantle and living flame-effect gas fire.
The attractive cottage-style hand-painted breakfast kitchen includes a double oven, gas hob, extractor, dishwasher, fridgefreezer, washing machine and TV point.
The spacious first bedroom has built-in, timber-fronted storage wardrobes with a staircase rising to the first floor dressing area which has a mirror-fronted double wardrobe.
Almost everywhere in this lovely cottage there are double glazed windows offering splendid views while outside are sizeable mature gardens.
