Harvest Barn is a detached Grade II listed conversion - the original barn is believed to date back to the 17th Century.
The barn is set within the pretty hamlet of Alscot, a conservation area and no-through lane just half a mile from the local town of Princes Risborough where there is shopping for local requirements and a mainline railway station giving access to London in approx. 45 minutes.
Alscot falls within the catchment area of Aylesbury Grammar and High Schools (7 miles).
The surrounding countryside offers some wonderful walks and rides with a delightful contrast between the Chiltern Hills to the east and the vales of the Chiltern Hundreds to the west.
The barn structure is of elm construction which gives the wood a lovely 'honey' colour. It was converted approximately 19 years ago to a very high standard. Both floors have good ceiling height with the upper floor having a magnificent vaulted ceiling.
There is a wealth of character throughout including stripped wood and natural stone flooring, exposed brickwork and ceiling beams.
Harvest Barn has been subject to a programme of constant updating and care.

Sitting room with direct access into garden
Study / play room
Kitchen / breakfast room with direct access into garden
Two ground floor bedroom suites

The reception hall of the barn is double height, vaulted and beamed, opening onto a very attractive dining hall with views over the gardens.
The kitchen is extensively fitted with distressed oak units with black granite work surfaces over, built-in appliances and breakfast area.
Outside there is a detached barn annex with sitting room, kitchen area, shower room, mezzanine bedroom, separate CH and underfloor heating.
