A sizable and beautifully crafted barn conversion with private gardens and grounds of approximately two acres benefiting from far reaching rural views over neighbouring farmland and the South Downs.
‘Spurk Barn’ is situated along a private driveway just south of the quaint village of Albourne. The property was converted to a home in approximately 1995 and was extended by the current owner in 1998 with the addition of a large oak framed extension designed by Carpenter Oak & Woodland.
The result is a wonderful family home enjoying an open plan ground floor with vaulted ceilings and floor to ceiling windows filling the property with light. The character and charm of the original barn with its original oak timbers has been retained and blends beautifully with the modern oak, glass clad extension.
The accommodation extends over 3,800 square feet arranged over two floors and offers a flexible layout to reconfigure the use of the existing space.
The property, while set in a quiet rural location, is ideally located with easy access to Brighton, Gatwick Airport and the national rail and motorway networks.
