Standing resplendent within seven acres, Dalton Grange Barn presents one of those rare opportunities to own a magnificent rural family home within the hugely sought-after area of Dalton. Entering the property through electric gates, you are immediately drawn to the breath-taking vista of the rolling countryside that opens up before you. The views from the property of the Douglas Valley are stunning and uninterrupted by roads, rail or telephone wires. A cattle grid divides the parkland from the formal garden. There is expansive cobbled parking available, suitable for horseboxes and larger vehicles. Dalton Grange Barn was once part of a country estate. It is unusual in that it was a building that not only housed animals and their foodstuffs but farm workers as well. Another extraordinary feature is its three barn windows, the front elevation boasting two adjacent to each other. The barn was built in the era of Queen Victoria, when buildings were not only built to last but constructed to highlight the quality and craftsmanship of the artisans who built them. Animals were once housed in individual downstairs rooms with stone flagged floors, some of which have been retained, as has the original stone staircase once trod by farm labourers who slept upstairs. Interesting architectural features remain throughout including multiple stone arched windows and doors, oak beams, solid stone walls and fireplaces, to name but a few. Over thirty years the current owners have, with an eye on its history, lovingly turned Dalton Grange Barn into what it is today, a large comfortable family home that offers an abundance of space whilst maintaining a cosy feel. A plethora of stylish features have been sensitively incorporated into the property, these include crescent headed hard wood double glazed windows, cast iron radiators and an original lamppost. It should be noted that a second vehicular entrance exists (not currently used) behind an attractive traditional five barred gate on the opposite side of the property to the main entrance. Passing through a solid oak door, below a stone archway, you find yourself in the large, airy vestibule. The left door is to a WC, whilst the main door leads into the large Martin Moore’s granite and cherry wood topped dining kitchen. As would be expected the kitchen is the hub of activity for the home, and as such the large space has been designed so that dining furniture is positioned to provide an informal social setting for family and friends to gather. A gas fired Aga and the twin Belfast sinks are both eye catching features, whilst the freezer, fridge and dish washer are integrated. Three reception rooms lead from the kitchen, as well as the pantry and a wide passageway that leads to the laundry with the original stone steps to the upper floors tucked away behind a door beyond. The Morning Room has dual aspect windows whilst the Sitting Room offers window aspects to three sides, a large stone fireplace, wooden floor and door to the courtyard. A set of double doors lead from the kitchen into the Main Dining Room with its three arched barn windows, the rear one incorporating a pair of double doors to the courtyard. The Dining Room also contains a cosy seating area around the fireplace, beyond which a set of doors lead through to the Office, with access to the large two storey double garage. Beyond the Office is the lantern light Garden Room, which offers stunning views to the rear of the property. The first floor landing is accessed via the original stone steps, which is a light airy space with dual aspect windows. This has potential to be used as an upper sitting room, study or additional bedroom. Off the landing is a bedroom with integrated wash basin (this bedroom is directly over the Laundry which already has the necessary plumbing, thus an en suite is a realistic possibility). The Master Bedroom with roof terrace, four piece en suite and dressing Room is also on this floor. The second staircase leads from the sitting area of the dining room into a large upstairs lounge and Entertainment Room with galleried landing and a magnificent stone fireplace. The second floor is accessed via a staircase adjacent to the Master Suite. This staircase opens onto a landing and leads to two further bedrooms with a separate WC and a Shower Room. It is evident, when walking through this most appealing and comfortable home, that this has been a thirty year labour of love. Rooms that vary vastly in size and appearance have: through attention to detail, a nod to history and the inclusion of common elements; fused to create a home for all generations. Dalton Grange Barn is complimented by a blend of seven acres of formal gardens, paddock and woodland which combine to provide a tranquil landscape. Mature trees with majestic canopies sufficiently spaced to allow the sun to penetrate through, provide the ideal habitat for fauna and flora and in doing so creates the perfect setting for games, nature walks, picnics or perhaps just a little solitude.
