Driftway Barn is an exceptionally spacious barn conversion with very versatile accommodation. Listed Grade II as being of historical and architectural interest, the property was formerly one of a number of agricultural buildings belonging to Gannock Farm House and is now one of five properties which have been converted for residential use. Attached in part to the former Granary, this 18th Century weatherboard and slate barn was converted in 1997 and has the benefit of vaulted ceilings, exposed timbers, hardwood double glazed windows and inglenook style fireplaces. Further work was undertaken to create the sitting/music room some years later and the whole provides a really spacious family home with a large garden.
Accessing the house via the formal rear courtyard garden, there is a choice of two entrance doors the back door leading to the side hall, and the double main entrance doors to the vaulted entrance hall which opens to the drawing room beyond.

Adjoining is the dining room, a bedroom - with an en suite shower room and an inner hall leading to both a TV/playroom with an inglenook style fireplace and woodburner, and a study/bedroom 6 with exposed timbers. The dining room is a well-proportioned room -particularly for a round table - with Inglenook style fireplace, brick hearth, niches and seat ledges. Steps from here lead up to the superb re-fitted kitchen/breakfast room with a range of Leicht units, a large central island unit with Wenge worktop incorporating wide drawers, deep sink with Quooker hot water tap and pull out mixer spray tap, dishwasher and electric oven.
