This “imaginatively converted” former barn for sale is surrounded by rolling countryside and is full of historic character. 

Cwm Cae Barn, in Maypole near Monmouth, has “superb” rural views and blends period features with modern amenities. 

Character features of the property include oak beams, roof trusses, and original arrow slit windows. 

Entering the home, floor-to-ceiling panels sit in place of the original barn doors, leading into a part-vaulted hallway and dining area with wooden floorboards and exposed wall timbers.

The hall stretches back to a sun terrace with countryside views, and a living room with a wood-burning stove on a raised stone hearth. 

Beyond this is a beamed drawing room with arrow slit windows and a fireplace, plus a recently installed kitchen with integrated appliances.

A bespoke oak staircase leads to the first floor galleried landing, which provides access to the principal bedroom suite, featuring a vaulted ceiling, exposed timbers, an adjacent dressing room and an en-suite shower room.
