A stylish barn conversion just outside the sought-after village of Martin, near Fordingbridge, has come to the market.
Chase Barn is a Grade II listed timber-framed barn believed to date from the early 18th century and was converted into a home in 1992.
The flexible accommodation features contemporary design sitting alongside stunning, historic architecture. The floors are solid oak floorboards and Jericho limestone, with underfloor heating on the ground floor, while all internal doors are handmade of solid oak.
Features include a spectacular, double-height central atrium with full-height windows to both sides and doors onto the south-facing garden, and a suspended, pivoting fireplace separating the atrium from the sitting room.
The south-facing conservatory has full-width sliding doors overlooking the garden, with far-reaching views towards Tidpit Down.
The kitchen/breakfast room has a large central island, four-oven Aga, butlers sink, black-honed granite work surfaces and integrated appliances.
A glazed wall divides the inner hall from the study, while the adjacent triple-aspect snug has been cleverly converted from the former cow shed. A cloakroom/WC and a utility room complete the ground floor.
Upstairs, the striking, generous principal bedroom with a dressing area and en suite shower room features a wealth of exposed timbers, including the Queen truss, in its vaulted ceiling. Positioned in front of the south-facing window, with far-reaching views, is a hand-made, William Holland, copper bateau bath. A further bedroom with en suite bathroom sits on this side of the atrium.
A suspended walkway with glass balustrade gives access to the galleried library, which has floor-to-ceiling bookshelves and a rolling library ladder.
There are a further two bedrooms including one with an oak staircase to a galleried mezzanine level and en suite bathroom, and the other with en suite shower room.
There is additional accommodation in the converted barn across the drive.
On the ground floor is a four-car garage and storage room, garden store and workshop, with separate access to a guest bedroom, shower room and storage room. On the first floor is a professionally fitted, fully sound-proofed music studio which would also make an ideal media room/home cinema and there is a second bedroom/gym with air conditioning on this floor.
The south-west facing garden is predominantly lawn, with terraces next to the house, a hot tub, fire pit and summer house. Behind the second barn is a tennis court and beyond that, a semi-circle of mature beech copse and a paddock.
Chase Barn is being marketed by Savills for a guide price of £2,250,000.
