A former farm worker’s cottage, believed to date from the 18th century, has undergone an astounding transformation over the years to become an exceptional country home.

Just on the market with Henry Adams Estate Agents, High Barn Farm near Haslemere, Surrey, is an idyllic equestrian property set in approximately nine acres of grounds. Full of stylish character, this beautifully refurbished house with separate barn conversion is now a world away from its humble beginnings.

A highly individual detached property, High Barn Farm has been renovated throughout to create a unique home that could have come straight from the pages of an interiors magazine. Its many notable features include open fireplaces, vaulted ceilings, stone flooring and exposed oak timbers, which give the property a wonderful charm and elegance. Designed for modern living, the house has a fabulous kitchen/breakfast room with access to a family room, a drawing room with views over the gardens, a master bedroom, three further bedrooms and two bathrooms.

This might sound like all you could desire, but there’s more to come! To the rear of the property is a detached barn that has recently been converted to create an additional living or working space. This comprises a large vaulted living area with bi-fold doors, a further bedroom with en suite bathroom, and a separate living space with kitchenette and mezzanine.

The exterior of the property is equally sensational. Located just 2 miles outside Haslemere in spectacular countryside, High Barn Farm’s extensive grounds include paddocks, an orchard, lawned gardens and a sweeping private driveway. Plus, there is planning permission for four stables and a hay barn.

Vivien Wakefield, Henry Adams’ Haslemere office, comments:

“High Barn Farm is a truly unique country home combining wonderful character, a secluded rural setting with far-reaching views and good proximity to town. The converted barn is an incredible addition, offering a flexible space that would make a perfect annexe or office.”

High Barn Farm is on the market at a guide price of £1,495,000 freehold.
