Kingston Seymour—Grade II listed Converted Barn

House Fox Estate Agents are proud to present this fine Grade II listed, converted barn in the idyllic village of Kingston Seymour. Boasting both history and charm, the barn once housed a pony and trap, hence the unusual name, Trap House. In 1992, the owners converted the property to a delightful period home. In doing so, they retained many characterful features of its original construction. The accommodation is a generous, 1904sq ft (176.89 square metres) in total. 

Off the inviting and welcoming entrance hallway is a laundry room and cloakroom. With ample entertaining space, the fitted kitchen/diner is both useful and charming. Accessed through the kitchen, the living room is impressive. It retains the high, oak-beamed ceiling of the original construction. A log-burning stove provides heat for this large, and comfortable room. Patio doors lead out into the garden.

Three large bedrooms

The master bedroom suite is on the ground floor, approached through the living room. At 270sq ft (25.08 square metres). It comprises a large bedroom, dressing room and an en-suite. Two further generous double bedrooms and family bathroom are on the first floor.

Outside space

Outside, the large driveway provides off-street parking for several vehicles. The garden itself is large and versatile, with much of it given to grass with some mature trees. There is potential here for landscaping on a grand scale for the creative gardener.
