About this property

  • Old Barn is a magnificent period property, consisting of the original main house, a more modern adjoining cottage and a newly built, timber frame lodge. Having been considerately extended and renovated by the current owners, the property combines period detailing alongside, smart, modern fixtures and appliances, including under-floor heating throughout, argon gas filled windows and modern wall insulation, as well as an air source heat pump. Overall a stylish, yet practical and flexible family residence. There is the opportunity to create a larger family home by combining the main house and cottage using the inter-connecting door, whilst still retaining secondary accommodation with the Lodge.

    The ground floor accommodation provides plenty of comfortable living space, with a more formal sitting room , study, family room, as well as a grand dining room, with a vaulted ceiling, exposed beams and French doors leading to a paved outside seating area. A bespoke open-plan kitchen comfortably caters for a family seating area, informal dining and the ability to host big gatherings owing to the large 3 sided central island.

    The sitting room and dining room have fireplaces with wood burning stoves, whilst the study has a cast-iron open fireplace.

    There are four double bedrooms on the first floor, including the generous principal bedroom, which has French doors opening onto a balcony along with a large en-suite bathroom containing a freestanding bathtub and dual washbasins.

    One of the further bedrooms also has an en-suite, while a family bathroom offers a freestanding bath and a separate shower unit.

    The cottage provides a further 1,500 square feet of accommodation, including a well-proportioned living room, with a connecting door to the main house, a fully equipped kitchen, a utility room, three bedrooms, served by two bathrooms.

    Of note is the considerable loft storage space available in the cottage and the main house. There are three in total, of which one is fully boarded and carpeted with ladder access. Current planning permission exists to convert one of these lofts into further bedroom and bathroom space and details can be found online - South Oxfordshire District Council - P20/S0470/HH.

    The property is set within beautifully designed gardens, mainly to the front and side. Pristine lawns are complimented with mature trees, well-stocked beds and an imposing, paved terrace. There are numerous external power points, water taps and comprehensive garden lighting and up-lighters. Electric gates open to a gravel driveway leading to first the newly built timber framed lodge, consisting of garage, carport with electric vehicle charging capability. Above is a comfortable one bedroom annexe.

    Other outbuildings include a deceptively large summer house, neatly hidden away, with an internal workshop and clever home office which enjoys views across neighbouring fields.

From the moment you drive through the wooden gates and along the shingle drive to the house, you can't help but be impressed by the stunning gardens and all round style. Plus the potential to have two forms of additional accommodation for either personal use or for rental income is pretty unique.
