Nestled at the end of the bridleway past a few neighbouring farm built conversions, Cedar Barn offers some 5,000 sqft of superb family accommodation.

In summary, what does this property offer:
A 5000 sqft eco home that was built in 2014, which 1000sqft is currently separated to create a separate self contained 2 bed, 2 bath house (the annexe). A great space for family or guests to enjoy, alternatively the annexe currently rents for £1,000 a month if you’d prefer the income.
A further 1000 sqft detached barn that is completely self contained with its underfloor heating, Kitchen and Bathroom facilities. This was recently used as a gym/studio but opens up the options to be used as you see fit.
Two detached offices are found in the rear courtyard which is out of site. Both offices are self contained with Kitchen and Bathroom facilities. Perfect for anyone wanting to work from home or rent out for an additional income.
A 2 1/2 Acre paddock that sits behind the main houses garden, the paddock offers lots of space for the new owners of this estate to enjoy, and whilst looking great, it serves a purpose too with part of the paddock housing a rain water harvesting system.
The home performs so efficiently that the solar energy creates on average and extra income of around £4,000 after its fed the estate. A lovely perk of this property.
An exciting opportunity to purchase Cedar Barn, the UK’s first code level 6 and Passivhaus home built in a traditional barn style benefiting from Buildmark, NHBC’s warranty and insurance. Cedar Barn not only achieved level 6 of the code for sustainable homes, but its solar system produces over 3.5 times it’s yearly energy requirements.
Jamie’s thoughts… Buying this property could enable you to live and own this incredible estate with a very little or no cost, how? Simple, once you own the estate, you could easily rent the annexe, the barn to a business, and the two offices. All returning a healthy income, plus the solar panels return around £3000 a year profit too. So if you want the dream home but struggling to make the numbers work right now… this could be a great solution to secure what you need in a home, while renting the outbuildings for profit.
