Bedrooms: 5
Along Pocket Nook Road, a quiet country village road in Chew Moor, brace yourself for barn storming adventures – at Oak Barn House, a bespoke architect-designed home, tailor made for modern family living.

Sophisticatedly stylish from the front, uplighting illuminates the rustic stone and modern glass façade, whilst wisteria wends its way up the walls for wafts of gentle springtime fragrance. Park up in front of the home, or in the large, double garage with remote electric doors and spacious enough to accommodate a motorbike, gym equipment and a workshop.

Beyond the solid wood front door, emerge into a spacious entrance hall, brimming with borrowed light courtesy of glazed double doors leading into the living room to the left. Contemporary spotlighting to the ceiling ensures a bright and welcoming arrival whatever the time of day. A handy WC and cloakroom for coats and shoes are available within the entrance hall, before making your way through the double doors and on into the breathtaking living room.

Wooden flooring underfoot shines beneath the neat rows of LED spotlights above, dimmable to provide the perfect ambience. Blending contemporary features with classical tones, a minimalist décor marries with rustic touches like the exposed stone features discovered throughout.

Snuggle up on the sofa (so grandly sized is this room there is space for several), in front of the toasty glow of the log-burning stove, set upon a stone hearth within a cheerful brick inglenook for the ultimate cosy night in. Exposed stone quoins and sills dress the trio of double-glazed windows. Outside, mature potted trees provide privacy on the neatly flagged front garden, with space for a bench to enjoy a moment’s mindful reflection or to read the weekend newspaper.

Feature brick columns flank both the double doors leading into the living room and also the archway, leading through into the kitchen; the perfect balance of modern open-plan living whilst retaining the individuality of the living room. The ideal flow for families and for entertaining.

Follow this flow through into the light and contemporary kitchen, where crisp white cabinetry extends in a U-shape, proffering plenty of storage. Under cabinet lighting provides a subtle glow. Sleek white worktops afford ample preparation space, with a large Range-style cooker taking a central role. Gleaming tiles lie underfoot, whilst additional integrated appliances include a wine cooler, microwave and dishwasher. Sociably styled, dine casually at the breakfast bar, or snuggle up on the sofa for conversation and laughter with the chef. There is room for all the family here. Sneak a peek at the utility room, with plumbing for washer and dryer and further storage.

Beyond, discover the decadent dining room, lit by a duet of elegant chandeliers nestled above the large, ten-seater table; the perfect setting for Christmas dinner. Dressed in wooden flooring, windows to both sides and glazed, double doors frame views out to the garden, opening to draw the outdoors in. Enjoy sunny summer barbecues on the stone paved patio beyond.

Returning to the entrance hall, take the oak staircase, carpeted in plush grey, up to the spacious first floor landing, which also serves as a second sitting room. Shimmering wallpaper sets the scene, whilst the arched window to the front draws in ample light, with additional spotlighting above. Perfect for large families, this extra entertaining space affords the opportunity for children to have their own designated chill out zone.

Turning left discover another double bedroom dressed in cocoa tones, with cream carpet underfoot and with sublime countryside vistas over farmland and out to Rivington from the window. Enjoy a morning spritz in the ensuite shower room, also fitted with wash basin and WC.

Nestled along an inner landing, discover the first of four serene bedrooms, currently accommodating a large, double sofa bed, double wardrobes and with its own ensuite. Tiled to the floor and walls, this ensuite features a shower, WC, wash basin and heated towel rail.

Opposite the staircase, the neighbouring bedroom has a relaxing, intimate feel courtesy of its sloping roofline where a Velux window frames nighttime starlit views.

Peep through to the ensuite, with its own roll top bath, bidet, WC and twin wash basins with vanity unit storage. Nestled along an inner landing, discover a third double bedroom, stylish, peaceful and also served by its own shower room ensuite.

Take the open tread staircase up to the second-floor gallery landing where the master bedroom awaits. Exposed beams dress the walls and chandelier lighting pervades on this uppermost level where, off the landing, a delightfully designed dressing room awaits to the left. Treacle tone beams add character, fitted with rails upon which to hang your outfits. There is ample space for wardrobes and a dressing table, with light flowing in through the Velux windows. If you are looking for a fifth bedroom, this would also make an ideal double.

Across the way, slumber awaits in the inviting bedroom, carpeted underfoot and with starlight views above the double bed courtesy of the Velux windows, fitted with their own blinds.

Freshen up in the luxurious bathroom, where a walk-in wet room style shower, fitted with drench showerhead and handheld attachment, is the perfect place to begin the day. Tiled underfoot and with handsome beams exposed within the wall, enjoy your own private room of refreshment on this upper floor.

Outside, the rear garden is as well manicured and maintained as the front, with a paved patio perfect for pre-dinner cocktails and alfresco dining. Sheltered within its lightly-painted walls, enjoy the heat of summer in total privacy and seclusion, perfectly secure for children and pets.

Astro Turf is ideal for year-round greenery, bordered by neatly pruned potted trees, and edged in stone paving for accessibility all year round. Uplighters accent and illuminate the foliage creating pretty dining room vistas in the evening.

A handy wrought iron gate to the rear provides access to a further large patio area by the detached double garage. Ideal for storage and brimming with the potential for further development.
