HE Sta­bles, an im­mac­u­late grade II listed, four/five bed­room barn con­ver­sion in Raans Road,Amer­sham, is for sale with Bon­nam Es­tates at a guide price of £1,600,000.

Dis­creet wood pan­elled elec­tric gates set into a tra­di­tional brick and flint wall sweep open to re­veal a thickly grav­elled drive­way that crunches un­der­foot, a stretch of freshly laid lawn and a gen­er­ous L-shaped pa­tio.

But it is the barn con­ver­sion be­yond that draws the eye. No fewer than eight sets of dou­ble doors open onto the wide ter­races, flood­ing this stun­ning home with nat­u­ral light and cre­at­ing a sense of easy, ha­cienda-style liv­ing.

And the brand new in­te­rior lives up to first im­pres­sions. From the master bed­room en-suite at one end of the airy ground floor to the su­perb open-plan liv­ing area at the other, it is ex­cit­ing to see how bril­liantly the ul­tra-mod­ern de­tail­ing com­bines with gor­geous his­tor­i­cal fea­tures.

From state-of-the-art bath­rooms fit­ted with Porce­lanosa tiles and Kelly Hop­pen taps to the 300-year-old oak beamed liv­ing area that has var­i­ously housed wheat and farm sup­plies,‘The Sta­bles’ ef­fort­lessly jux­ta­poses two con­trast­ing worlds.

The barn is at­tached at one end to 12th-cen­tury Raans Manor – once home to King Richard II’s lawyer Ed­mund Bru­denell – and is sur­rounded by farm­land in the peace­ful Chilterns coun­try­side.Yet the ameni­ties and trans­port links of Amer­sham are less than a mile away.

A sec­ond dou­ble bed­room, fam­ily bath­room, sep­a­rate study and large games room oc­cupy the south-west fac­ing ground floor. Up­stairs are two fur­ther dou­ble bed­rooms, both with en-suites.

The barn also ben­e­fits from a well planned cloak­room and stor­age area and a sep­a­rate, fully equipped util­ity room with loft space above.

But the heart of the home sits in the huge, high ceilinged his­toric barn, where car­pen­ters’ orig­i­nal tool marks are tes­ta­ment to the en­dur­ing na­ture of its oak beams.

To one end is a fully equipped mod­ern, han­dle­less fit­ted kitchen with touch-sen­si­tive Neff ap­pli­ances and a break­fast bar/is­land.

Light floods in through four sets of pa­tio doors, one of which leads onto a sun filled rear ter­race.A gen­er­ous sized wood burner, with log re­cess be­neath, lies at the far end.

To sink into a plush sofa in front of that roar­ing fire, with the aroma of some­thing de­li­cious roast­ing in the oven is one level of per­fec­tion.To be do­ing so in a home where her­itage and history meet moder­nity and func­tion­al­ity so ef­fort­lessly, takes per­fec­tion to another level.
