Upstairs comprises two bedrooms with en suites, modern family bathroom, two further bedrooms and access to the mezzanine floor overlooking the lounge.
Outside the property is approached by a five bar gate which opens onto the long sweeping drive taking you down to the property.
The formal gardens are all around the house and mainly laid to lawn at the rear and side. There is also a patio area under a pergola which is a perfect place to host barbecues.
Opposite the house are some stables which lead into a large field (approximately 10 acres). A beautiful orchard lies within the grounds of Tithe Barn along with two ponds and a huge variety of shrubs.
There is also a ‘Dovecote’ (which previously had planning permission for conversion) along with a double garage.
The Tithe Barn is situated in the picturesque village of Stanton Drew which a very sought after village situated within the Chew Valley. Within the village the local facilities include a primary school, public house (The Druids), a church and a village hall.
