Fell Close is a fabulous and immaculately presented five bedroom detached house which occupies a very prominent position within the small hamlet of Barlow, enjoying elevated views over the surrounding countryside and adjoining paddocks. The property has been refurbished by the current owner to a high specification throughout, with the conversion of a separate building, creating a one bedroom self-contained single storey annexe, ideal as a granny annexe or home office/studio, stabling and an additional triple garage. The house, built in the 1990’s, benefits from an attractive electric gated entrance, large block paved driveway for several cars, extensive lawned gardens with a grass tennis court, and two separate paddocks.
The part glazed front door leads into the entrance porch and vestibule before entering into the main reception hall, which is full of natural light from the attractive picture window to the rear. The sitting room is to the rear of the property and offers an attractive cast iron wood burning stove set on a contemporary marble hearth with wooden mantle over. The sitting room leads through to the garden room which offers a versatile space, whilst enjoying views out onto the garden, as well as having direct access via the French doors. An archway from the sitting room leads through to the dining room which looks to the front of the property and leads through to the breakfast kitchen. The kitchen is fitted with a range of wooden fronted units with black granite worktops and offers an inset stainless steel one and half bowl sink with waste disposal, NEFF halogen hob with Miele extractor hood, NEFF barbecue grill and two integrated NEFF ovens, De Dietrich American-style fridge freezer, integrated NEFF dishwasher, microwave and integrated Hoover wine chiller. There is a naturally bright breakfast room off the kitchen, with French doors and views over the garden.

The master bedroom is off a good size and benefits from an en-suite bathroom fitted with a bath, twin wash hand basins set within a vanity unit, WC and separate shower. The guest bedroom is to the front of the property and also benefits from an en-suite comprising wash hand basin, WC and shower. There are further third and fourth bedrooms, the latter of which could be used as a study.
