The five-bed­room barn is set in nearly three acres of pro­fes­sion­ally land­scaped gar­dens and has an ad­di­tional an­nexe.

Buy­ers will love the dou­ble height ceil­ings, large ar­eas of glass, air con­di­tion­ing and hi-tech fea­tures in­clud­ing LED light­ing cir­cuits and so­phis­ti­cated cinema and tele­vi­sion con­trol sys­tems.

At the heart of the home is the kitchen, which has a high glazed roof and is set into the old cart bay en­trance.

The hand-crafted Ital­ian kitchen is by Ernesto Meda. It has two steam ovens, con­ven­tional oven, cof­fee ma­chine and warm­ing drawer, all by Gagge­nau.

The two dish­wash­ers are by Miele and there are Barazza stain­less steel sinks. The kitchen opens into the din­ing area and the whole area links with out­door decked ter­races.

The draw­ing room has great views out to the gar­den and there is a se­cond sit­ting room with cock­tail bar and ad­join­ing wine cel­lar.

There are five bed­rooms and four bath­rooms. The an­nexe is in a sec­ondary barn and in­cludes an of­fice and gym with views of the gar­den. There is also a kitchen and shower/sauna/steam room.

There is a pair of stream-fed lakes stocked with brown and rain­bow trout. There are three open-fronted garages and a ma­chin­ery store.
