Warmingham has a rare opportunity to acquire a period barn of such quality and size that it is Grade II listed to reflect its historical and architectural importance. Ideally located on the edge of a small village high up on the Chilterns with excellent road and rail communications, the brick-and-flint building is approximately 4,000 sq ft (365 sq m) with a vaulted interior revealing an impressive timber beamed construction.

Huntercombe Manor Barn, otherwise known as “Hankeys Barn”, has a long history reflecting its medieval origins. It comprises a substantial building of significant presence and proportions, having appealing brick-and-flint elevations with part timber boarding under a steeply pitched clay tile roof.
In the early part of the last century the barn was remodelled internally in the style of the Arts and Crafts movement including the construction of a large chimney breast, at the apex of which is a carved terracotta bust by Eleanor Coade, an eminent businesswoman who perfected the manufacture of neoclassical statuary and architectural decorations.
Oak-framed leaded windows were installed as well as tall oak doors in a gabled front entrance. The Edwardian stable and coach wing was additionally constructed at this time with a slate roof.
The interior of the barn is breath-taking with the enormity of its vaulted structure which is a fine example of the building skills of the medieval period. In the late Eighties, the roof was felted, insulated and retiled. At the rear of the barn is a timbered cloister with a paved walkway under the main roof. In recent years the property has been the home of a bespoke antiques business.
The property is approached over a shared private driveway with ample parking. There are secluded lawned gardens to the front and rear enclosed by mature clipped tall hedges and trees.
