DESCRIPTION
One of Kingsbridge’s most prominent and elegant period properties, Barnfield is located in a much sought after area of the town. Dating back to 1840 this late Regency town house offers excellent proportioned accommodation with some 5 bedrooms and 2 attic bedrooms, 3 reception rooms as well as a utility, glazed conservatory and detached annexe.Many original features include ceiling cornicing, sash windows, a fine mahogany bannister rail and other such timbers. The property benefits from a commanding entrance hall, leading into an open reception room with additional dining room and separate living room. There is a large kitchen breakfast room with a white gas-fired AGA as well as attached pantries and utility space. Upstairs there are 4 double bedrooms, a family bathroom with an en-suite to bedroom 3. Discreetly hidden off the broad landing is a doorway leading up to 2 further double bedrooms. The garden is particularly well-established with an ornamental pond and some delightful trees. Parking is particularly well taken care of with a detached double garage and an abundance of space including turning areas. An exceptional opportunity to acquire a piece of Kingsbridge history.
