Barn for sale in SandhurstBy Lucy Allen
September 21, 2011
SOME imagination will be required by the buyer of this empty barn.
But anyone who has the vision required to turn this into a family house will end up with a beautiful home in a stunning spot.
The barn building, in Ambarrow Farm Courtyard, has planning permission granted to be converted into a single home.
The plans comprise a reception hall, open plan living/dining room, study, kitchen/breakfast room, family room, laundry room and cloakroom.
Upstairs there would be four bedrooms with an en suite to the master bedroom and a further family bathroom.
The barn is part of a collection of old and new buildings on the site of the old Ambarrow Farm, which was well known for its large dairy, from which milk was delivered around the location.
And Sandhurst Town Museum has some genuine Ambarrow milk bottles.
The barn is on a fair-sized plot with far reaching views over open countryside.
It is also close to Ambarrow Court, a 21-acre nature reserve and Wildlife Heritage site.
The reserve is a site of ancient woodland, birch and hazel coppice, marshes, ponds and pools, and a meadow, and features plants including bluebells, cuckoo flower and yellow rattle.
Exotic species such as bamboo, large specimen trees and yew hedges are just some of the leftover remnants of the Victorian era, and important animals recorded include the stag beetle, noctule bat and glow worm.
Ambarrow Lane is just to the north of Sandhurst.
There are shops in nearby Crowthorne and in Little Sandhurst, and Crowthorne station is only a short walk away.
The barn is for sale through Richard Worth in Wokingham, which anticipates an approximate build cost of around £150,000 to £200,000.
