5 Old Barn Drive is only three years old and has the residue of a 10 year new property insurance guarantee from LABC. Since being in the present owners hands some room configurations on the ground floor have been altered to give a more open plan feel and all wall finishes are Farrow and Ball. The house is a great family home with three bedrooms, one of which is ensuite, a family bathroom, a downstairs w.c. and an open plan living room with a kitchen/dining area and a sitting area. The garden is to the side mainly and is walled and nicely designed with raised planters, a patio and a built in water feature. The house is charming and Fowlers strongly recommend viewing.
