Property Description

“Threshing Barn”

A truly unique opportunity, this simply gorgeous handcrafted traditional threshing Barn has planning permission for conversion into a four bedroom home, and occupies approximately 0.58 acres amongst beautiful Cambridgeshire countryside. The Barn was meticulously rebuilt circa 2000, using traditional methods, with hand tools only. The stunning Welsh green oak was handpicked for the perfect shape and size and has been constructed by craftsmen who have previously restored Windsor Castle after its infamous fire. The oak structure is held together with traditional tapered oak pegs and is covered by a peg tiled roof with beautifully seasoned larch exterior cladding. Internally there is a herringbone brick tiled floor, raised timber floors and an oak timber staircase leading to the mezzanine floor. The current planning permission REF: 21/02082/FUL proposes four bedrooms, a contemporary open plan layout and a stunning glass elevation to the front.
