    About this property

    • This detached Grade II listed barn conversion was built in the 18th century and later transformed into a residential home in the 1960s. It enjoys an idyllic setting at the heart of this Cotswold village, on the banks of the river Thames which is crossed by a private bridge to reach the driveway. Once refurbished, it's the perfect country bolthole that you could ‘lock up and leave', and also offers great rental potential as a holiday let.

      The house presents fantastic potential for development, subject to obtaining the necessary consents. Currently arranged as a three-bedroom home attached to an extensive storage space, there is great scope to extend over the garaging and convert part of the ground floor storage area. The limestone building has excellent character, with old timber beams throughout and a slate roof – the possibilities for improvement are endless.

      The current layout comprises a sitting room and kitchen on the ground floor situated either side of a central hallway, with three good-size bedrooms and a shower room on the first floor. Above the garages/storage rooms there is a large unheated storage space with lighting and power.

    Local information

    • Ashton Keynes is a popular and pretty Cotswold village with a primary school, Post Office, community-run shop, parish church, a public house and garage. There are an inordinate number of societies in the village; an excellent example of a thriving community. The village is self-sufficient in many ways but Cirencester and Swindon, the two major towns in the area, are both within easy driving distance and provide comprehensive but differing shopping, commercial and recreational amenities. The village is also situated in the Cotswold Water Park providing water sports, walking, cycling, riding and golf opportunities. The Thames Path passes through the village. There are also leisure centres in Cirencester and Cricklade.
    • Communications are first class with a direct service from Kemble (about 3 miles) to London Paddington taking approximately 80 minutes. Both the M4 and M5 are easily accessible via the A417/419 dual carriageways.
    • The local area has a wide selection of highly regarded schools in both the public and private sectors and the property is within the catchment for both Kingshill and Deer Park Schools in Cirencester. Private schools include Hatherop Castle, Rendcomb College, Prior Park in Cricklade as well as the schools and colleges in Cheltenham.

    Additional information

    • Mains water, electricity and drainage. Oil central heating.
    • Directions: From Cirencester, proceed south out of town on the Siddington Road, passing through the village of Siddington and continuing for about three miles. Where the road splits, take turn left onto Cox's Hill, signposted Ashton Keynes, and enter the village. Pass the war memorial on your left and the property will be on the right-hand side just after the village shop on the opposite side of the road. W3W///betraying.companies.songs
