A wonderful home with charm, character and personality oozing from every corner. But don’t be fooled into thinking this 18th Century ‘attached’ Barn is a shrine to the way things were. No, the vendors have undertaken a significant yet most sympathetic work programme to the Barn to blend modern comforts with period features of the property to provide something quite unique.

The master piece is for sure the open plan kitchen / family / dining room area which is flooded with natural light and space and underfloor heating. As most families do, you could comfortably spend all day in here but that would be a betrayal to the wonderful lounge which for a sizeable room has a warm and cosy feel and log burner stove
The hallway with open, fully glazed, triple height ceiling will be the envy of your visitors and showcases the old beams, Queen Anne Timber Framework and bull-nosed brickwork. The staircase leading off gives access to the first floor landing and a refitted Guest W.C cloakroom built in below.
The first floor provides a versatile open plan study, games room or sitting room area, the owners even gave thought to rerouting the staircases to provide a 4th double bedroom but unless there is significant need we would leave as it is. The principal bedroom offers delightful views out over greenbelt fields and a beautifully appointed ensuite. A family bathroom then serves the two double bedrooms located to the second floor both with tall, vaulted ceilings over.
Outside the front driveway offers well established screening to the surround giving the property a very private feel and yet the neighbouring rooflines offer comfort that you are not completely alone. There is ample parking and a detached oak timbered two bay car port ideal for storage with a converted loft room above, ideal for those seeking a home office, art studio or hobbies room. The Gardens extend to the front, side and rear of the Barn and offer a great space to unwind.
Set within the delightful village of Rowington, The Threshing Barn enjoys a rural environment yet is only a few minutes’ drive to the larger villages of Lapworth, Knowle and Dorridge. Rowington and Lapworth offer local shops, excellent local inns, rail commuter service from Lapworth Station, village hall, St Mary the Virgin Parish Church, plus a junior and infant school in Station Lane. Surrounding Lapworth is lovely greenbelt countryside with many rural, canalside walks and bridle paths.
