Escape to the country with these spacious homes
THIS converted barn is surrounded by countryside. It comes with 1.75 acres of paddock and landscaped gardens. Inside, it has an underfloor heating system and an integrated sound system.
It has a vaulted reception hall with exposed beams and galleried mezzanine, cloakroom/wc, a dining hall leading to a large sitting room with stone fireplace and wood-burning stove, second sitting room, kitchen and utility room. The ground floor has three bedrooms, one en-suite and a house bathroom. On the first floor, there is a master bedroom with ensuite and a fifth bedroom/office.
Outside, there is a triple garage. ACTIVITY in the first-time buyer sector was 17 per cent stronger in February than in February last year, say the Council of Mortgage Lenders.
Combined with figures in January, it was the largest number of first-time buyers in the first two months of the year since 2008.
Lending to home movers fell, contributing to an overall dip in mortgage lending, while remortgage lending also eased.
A total of 16,400 loans were advanced to first-time buyers in February, up on 15,900 in January and 14,000 at the same time last year. By value, loans to first-time buyers totalled £2bn, the same amount as the previous month, but 18 per cent higher than in February 2012.
West Park House offers the space for multi-generational living and Crown Barns is a five-bedroom barn conversion full of character.
