Nestled in the picturesque village of Tintern alongside the Wye river, this stunning home provides for open plan modern day living in a character property within a Conservation area. The quality of design and flow is evident throughout, utilising three key elements: Natural stone, oak and glass. Must view is an overused expression, but, never was this more true than for this outstanding home, which was originally three separate barns. First converted in the late 1980s, and has recently been renovated to an exemplary standard with the highest quality materials and fittings throughout, but retaining the character and integrity of the 15th Century barns.
The superb open plan and split level reception areas include a large living room with wood burner and the dining area. There is a unique hand crafted solid oak and black granite kitchen; this is exquisitely equipped with a wealth of stunning and elegantly coordinated Siemens appliances, set off by an imposing full height wine cooler, fridge and freezer. The floors are natural stone with underfloor heating in the living areas and oak flooring in the bedrooms and upper floors. Above the kitchen and dining area is a full height atrium bounded by impressive galleried sitting areas and a library, all linked by a glass walkway.
Three of the bedrooms are in a split level single storey wing, with a fourth Private Guest Suite on the 1st floor, accessed via a solid oak staircase with glass balustrade.
Luxury items include Cat5e cabling throughout, a Lutron lighting system, wi-fi quality cabling for music speakers and a Sauna off the main bathroom. The former double garage is now an excellent games/cinema room. There are impressive views of the River Wye from the reception rooms, bedrooms and the expansive terraces. This is an ideal home for a family and/or entertaining and must be viewed to be appreciated.
