Oaktree Barn offers a truly unique opportunity to acquire a beautiful detached barn set within approx 7.5 acres of grounds creating wonderful uninterrupted countryside views. The barn itself has been lovingly and sympathetically renovated which in turn presents a very special home.
With a mix of rustic oak and modern décor throughout, this creates characterful, open, light spaces.
Even though you will feel wonderfully secluded here, Oaktree Barn is also located perfectly to benefit from the towns of Neath and Pontardawe where you will find local shops, schools and many other amenities close by.
As you meander through the stunning country roads and woodland you will catch first glimpse of Oaktree Barn through the trees whilst listening to the relaxing, natural sound of the running brook.
You will be in awe of the spectacular views the property has to offer as soon as you are on the grounds of Oaktree Barn.
The Barn was converted in 2006 to the highest specifications, including under-floor heating and Indian limestone tile flooring to the ground floor, Oak windows, shutters and doors and Oak flooring to the first floor.
You will enter the barn straight into a warm and welcoming entrance hallway, and following on into the heart of the home – the lounge. This room really is a warm, inviting space which is also a generous open/light room perfect for either cosying up in front of the wood burner or a lovely social gathering. The large windows/patio doors present wonderful views of the picturesque gardens and rolling countryside.
Leading into the kitchen you will instantly be drawn to the rolling hills which are framed perfectly by the kitchen window. The sun sets directly behind the hills across the valley which you can see from this point, a spectacular way to wash up or indeed relax with a glass of wine on the patio just outside the window. The kitchen is beautifully crafted with handmade units, granite worktops, double Belfast sink and ample space for entertaining.
In order to ascend up to the first floor you will journey up via the showstopper Oak staircase which leads from the lounge and straight onto ‘The Bridge’ – a gallery style landing where you can fully appreciate the full height ceilings of the lounge. There is also a study inlet tucked off ‘The Bridge’ which is a charming space perfect for a home office. Opposite this space is another inlet which is currently used as a dressing area.
The two double bedrooms are lovely bright spaces, the first of the double bedrooms is located to fully enjoy the country views across the valley. With the Juliet balcony framing the outlook perfectly, you will be able to enjoy the ever changing landscape from prime position. The en-suite bathroom provides a generous and relaxing space to enjoy the lovely views.
The second double bedroom is again a pleasant bright room benefitting from Velux windows and presents a generous, modern en-suite shower room.
In the grounds of this home is a stunning log cabin which has a wealth of functional versatility and has the added benefit of being installed with electricity. The cabin also has a wonderful veranda which can be enjoyed whilst taking in the spectacular views.
There is also a detached double garage with external steps leading up to a sizeable loft room and ample parking in the grounds.
This barn conversion has clearly been completed with much love, thought and attention to detail. From the moment you catch glimpse of the home and it’s surrounding showstopper views you will easily be able to picture yourself living here.
A great possible addition of an orangery could be added, as planning has been granted in the past which has now lapsed.
