Property Reference MCB
This magnificent house, has four bedrooms, and two additional rooms in the attic, this family home is presented to the market as a truly unique opportunity.
This property was built around the year 1560 as a charming detached period residence and the main structural timbers were part of a Spanish Galleon captured by the British and taken to Chatham to be broken up, some of the timbers being sold for buildings. The architectural features of the exterior are the horizontal proportions of the ground floor, first floor and roof which suggests a gradual growth and provides a very pleasant effect.
The Lounge with its oak stanchions, main beams and half timbers, black with age, gives a very restful and satisfying atmosphere which visitors are loathe to leave after enjoying its comfort; being well furnished with antique period furniture, it has a charm and beauty of olden times. The lounge has a superb inglenook fireplace featuring a fireback plaque dated 1588 and a coat of arms plaque, heavy oak bressumer and niches either side with leaded windows. In the study we have a stone fireplace with fireback dated 1618.
Situated on New Barn Road the grounds have several stately trees, including walnut, chestnut, ash, yew and others.
There is so much character to this magnificent building, that it requires a viewing to take in all the many wonderful features.

What the current owners say:
In 1991 after twenty years of moving house to suit my work in the construction industry
I was made director so could finally choose a family home. We lived in Newbarn and my
wife and children found New Barn House and fell in love with its unique charm so when
I went to see it I was under considerable pressure, fortunately I loved it so we bought it
fitted a new kitchen renewed electricity and plumbing and moved in.
My job was quite hectic especially in difficult economic times but N.B.H was always a
wonderful calming haven to come home to. The children loved it and the house was
always full of their friends. We have had some wonderful family celebrations especially at
Christmas where the setting is superb, the kids thought it a wonderful party house.
It has been a great place to spend lockdown, lovely house and garden in which to chill
and lovely walks in a caring community. We are moving because we are getting on and
the house is too big for us. Telling the grandchildren, we are moving will be very difficult
because they love the place as much as we do.
