The house began life as a paper mill in the 17th century and was subsequently used as a Barracks in the 18th century housing patrolling soldiers along the London to south coast road. Converted into workman’s cottages for the local estate, it then evolved into one house in more recent times. The current owners have blended period character features with modern convenience to create a wonderfully eclectic home in a unique setting. Oak flooring, glass balustrades and modern bathrooms blend with exposed brick walls and beams. The reception rooms are mostly dual aspect and well-proportioned with the sitting room, dining room and kitchen all opening onto the superb level terrace and garden. The modern kitchen/breakfast room features a superb Bulthaup kitchen, integrated Miele appliances, an AGA and room for a breakfast table. There is also a separate dining hall with working open fire and a large sitting room also with an open fire. The upstairs accommodation has four bedrooms with three bathrooms (all en suite) and lovely views of the front gardens and beautiful Barford Pond at the rear.Barracks is approached along a bridleway leading off a quiet lane in Churt. A gravel drive provides parking for several cars. The double garage, additional garage, and workshop/studio provides plenty of storage. A tennis court is positioned to one side at the top of a bank and is discreetly screened by mature planting. The house is nestled at the foot of the valley flanked by a meandering stream to one side and a large lawn spreading out in front. Mature specimen trees create a stunning backdrop and there is seasonal planting for year round interest. Specimen trees in the 1½ acre garden include apple, pear and oak. A stone terrace runs along the front of the property and links the main reception rooms to the garden and is a wonderful place to entertain and enjoy the view in the warmer months. Barford Pond to the rear of Barracks feeds the small stream and attracts wildlife including Herons, Kingfishers, Canadian Geese and Mandarin Ducks.
