Littleton-Upon-Severn, Bristol, Gloucestershire, BS35 1NR
Willow Barn is a most attractive, period home tucked away behind a gated entrance in one of South Gloucestershire's prime villages. Without doubt, this is a very special home enjoying its own private parkland setting with a stunning walled garden backing directly onto open countryside.
Littleton-upon-Severn is a small South Gloucestershire village near the mouth of the river Severn, located to the West of Thornbury. The village has a church, village hall and post office, as well as a popular C17 pub called the White Hart. Thornbury is a thriving former market town with a comprehensive range of shopping facilities, secondary schooling at Marlwood School, Castle School and a preparatory school at Tockington Manor, about one and a half miles to the south east. Bristol is approximately 11 miles away and the M5/M4 junction at Almondsbury is within six miles.View property on map
Believed to have been converted in 1972, this former barn features mellow, natural stone elevations under a clay Panitle roof. With accommodation arranged over just two floors, a good size entrance hall, with feature oak staircase and double doors open to a very pleasant and well proportioned sitting room, with a stone fire place and wood burning stove providing a lovely focal point to the room. Although not a separate room, to the far end of this lies an area that could be defined as an additional seating area with double doors opening directly on to the rear garden. Likewise, the dining room at the far end of the house has a very pleasant snug located at the far end, which provides a cosy and comfortable area for television and reading. The kitchen/breakfast room is a delightful and informal dining area for family and friends and is comprehensively fitted with a range of solid wood units with granite work surfaces, a substantial range cooker and some nice modern touches such as the instant boiling water tap. Doors from the kitchen lead both to the garden and to the separate utility room.
On the first floor there are four good bedrooms, a family bathroom, a separate shower room, and a master with en suite.
The driveway, double garage and additional parking bays provide the space for plenty of vehicles and there are two substantial outbuildings within the grounds, most noticeably a splendid workshop of over 20ft in length which is perfect for those that work from home and wonderful potential for those seeking a recreation room or home gymnasium.
The aforementioned gardens are such a feature it would be difficult to do them justice by words alone. Suffice to say, they are an absolute delight with south facing patio, beautifully tended lawns, orchard and a lovely, canopied alfresco dining area.
