This spectacular curved barn conversion offers a truly unique experience as the original round silo has beein retained and transformed in to exceptional accommodation with stunning outdoor dining areas and landscaped gardens. Historic Cambridge is only 9 miles away.

Renovated to an exceptional standard with contemporary fittings throughout, Barn 1 has an open plan ground floor where you have the best of both worlds. On summer evenings you relax in the sunroom with dual aspect bi-folding doors or on cooler days cosy up on the comfy sofas next to the wood burning stove. The dining area is perfectly positioned in front of the sliding glass doors with uninterrupted views over the open fields beyond.

A glass corridor links the property to the existing silo, where a circular kitchen offers additional seating along the breakfast bar arrangement, with windows looking over the large secluded terrace. Ascend the steel staircase to discover the master suite taking pride of place within the silo and second galleried bedroom above the sitting room with a large drape for privacy and sliding doors leading onto a balcony overlooking the garden and surrounding countryside. There are ample grounds for you to wander around along with a well-stocked soft fruit and fresh herb garden.
