A stunning period former barn affording a wealth of character throughout and located in a private sought after village setting with separate coach house offering further potential
The Barn was created from the careful conversion of a former
Tithe Barn of Magdalen College in the early 20th Century. The current owners have carried out significant additional works of upgrading and extension to create a home of considerable
character yet maintaining the integrity of the original structure. The main house sits well back from College Street with a further substantial long barn fronting directly onto the village road with a cleverly conceived in and out remote controlled gated sweeping driveway providing an impressive entrance to this historic property. In addition to the main house the
driveway splits to a separate mainly walled courtyard area which leads to a further range of accommodation including triple garaging, gym and office all with further potential subject to any necessary consents.
The setting of the house is particularly appealing being very private and with generous mature and extremely well maintained grounds and gardens extending to about 0.83 of an acre and backing directly onto the adjoining village sports
ground with tennis court, cricket ground and bowling green.
The main house has been cleverly improved and extended by the current owners and offers generous accommodation with a wealth of attractive features with oak flooring through much of the ground floor and exposed beams and timber and attractive open chimneypieces. The spacious breakfast kitchen is at the
heart of the home with a four oven Aga and leads directly out onto and with access to the rear terrace and garden. From the atmospheric ground floor reception hall, a dog-leg staircase rises to a first floor landing and a master bedroom with a
stunning recently completed luxurious en suite bathroom and shower. There are four further bedrooms, plus a separate study/office and three further high quality refitted bathrooms.
Coach house/garage with separate driveway accessed off the main drive to a walled courtyard area. Triple garaging with remote controlled doors leading through to a large workshop and storage area, adjoining office, with direct garden access.
Gymnasium of generous proportions with brick fireplace and a solid fuel stove, bespoke floor coverings. Lobby area with large fitted utility, separate cloaks and W.C.
Note this separate coach house/annexe has considerable additional potential.
This is a period wide detached barn fronting directly onto
College Street of traditional brick and pantile construction
currently arranged as three substantial stores, one with an
integral Eurocave wine cellar and a central drive thru remote
controlled gated open barn area into the sweeping principal driveway.
The property enjoys a long walled frontage to College Street with twin remote controlled period style gated entrances, there are mature gardens surrounding the property and including lovely paved terraced areas for private seating and entertaining including a multi-level stocked pond with filtration and pump system. The rear gardens are set adjoining the local cricket ground and tennis courts and have a stunning main lawned area with superbly maintained mature borders. In all about 0.83 of an acre.
