Thanks to Nick for pointing us inn the direction of this 1960s barn conversion in Graffham, Near Petworth, West Sussex. It needs some work, that’s for sure. But it is an interesting property in what’s described as a ‘secluded location’.
According to the agent, Heydons Loft (that’s the name of the place) was originally a stone barn. However, it was converted into something more akin to a modern house back in 1966.
That was mainly down to the the addition of a timber framed first floor, which resulted in ‘a most unusual dwelling in a contemporary style’. However, judging by the one shot we can see of the interior, it is a house that is well in need of some more work 50 years on.
The agent points to this being a plot ideal for a new property (subject to all the consents) or renovating and enlarging this place. We would hope the latter wins out. If you need more space you can always convert the ground floor garage and store.
That might be a good idea as space now isn’t huge. A front door leads to a hall and utility room on the ground floor with stairs up to the first floor where there are two bedrooms, a sitting room with balcony, kitchen and bathroom. On the ground floor and accessed separately is that integral garage and ‘large’ storeroom.
Outside space includes a gravelled parking area in front of the house plus a small area of lawn, along with the main garden at the rear and covering around 0.18 acres.
The guide price is £500,000.
