The Treasury is a very stylish conversion of a 17th century brick barn. Occupying part of an attractive range of former farm buildings, and being in the curtilage of a Grade II Listed building, the property sits at the heart of the popular and picturesque village of Ickham. Arranged around a secluded garden the barn offers very generous accommodation, balancing a broadly open plan arrangement with other useful rooms to create a versatile home.
The comfortable living areas comprises of a series of sociable spaces. The library and entrance hall sit to the centre of the barn with impressive vaulted ceilings and is loosely divided, by a magnificent oak spiral staircase and a step down, from the main reception room. This is arranged as an elegant sitting and music room with a deep inglenook fireplace and wood-burning stove.
Glazed double doors lead from the entrance hall to a large kitchen/breakfast room. This splendid family room is practically arranged with kitchen, dining and sitting areas delivering a desirable space for relaxed living and entertaining. Exposed roof trusses and tall windows create a wonderful open feel; a further wood-burning stove sits to one end.
To the western wing of the house an office is accessed via glazed doors from the library and benefits from an en suite bathroom, enabling its use as a bedroom if desired. A study is set adjacent to a shower room and, in conjunction with the current utility room and the two bedrooms above, offers potential for a self-contained unit.
The principal bedroom suite is accessed by the striking spiral staircase and has fitted wardrobes and an en suite shower room.
The sheltered, south facing garden provides a private courtyard style arrangement. A paved terrace adjoining to sides of the house giving excellent seating and dining areas. The remainder is laid to lawn and set behind established hedged borders.
A useful garden shed sits to one side of the garden and there are two parking spaces
