About the main house.
The pristine six bedroom house exudes luxury and comfort in every detail. The property is of a classic yet modern architectural style that perfectly blends with its surroundings. Entering the property through the spacious side porch, past the laundry room and boot room with shower, you walk into the generous and welcoming 27’ kitchen which opens into the light filled main living room which has two sets of bi-fold doors opening onto the side and rear terraces. A glass atrium over the dining area fills the room with natural light, while a modern woodburning stove creates a cosy sitting area. The beautifully designed hand-built kitchen is a chef’s dream with high-end appliances and stone worktops, with a large island and solid oak breakfast bar, perfect for entertaining. The kitchen leads into the study, which then leads into the separate dual aspect sitting room with woodburning stove set into a brick feature fireplace.
The six bedrooms are spacious and elegantly decorated, five with their own luxury en-suite shower room, one with bath. The bedrooms are located on the two upper floors, providing privacy and tranquillity. Three bedrooms enjoy Juliet balconies with stunning views of the garden and fields beyond, while the principal bedroom also includes a walk-in dressing room.
About the barn conversion.
The separate three-bedroom barn conversion is a wonderful feature of Hollybush, offering additional accommodation or providing rental income if desired. The barn conversion has been tastefully renovated and features an open-plan living and dining area, a fully equipped kitchen with utility room, three bedrooms - the principal bedroom with Juliet balcony, and a luxurious downstairs bathroom.
Outside the barn has a sunny terrace and garden with steps up to a summerhouse and additional outside seating area along with kitchen garden and raised vegetable beds.
About the holiday lodges.
There are three beautiful two-bedroom wooden lodges in a secluded position on the property with a separate driveway and parking area. There is full privacy for the main house. Situated within their own private grounds, the Lodges enjoy wonderful countryside views of the adjoining valley and village beyond. They are all finished to a high standard each with two bedrooms, open plan living area and outside decked and patio terraced areas.
The lodges generate a good income for someone looking to run a business from home. There is also planning permission for a fourth Lodge with services in situ.
