About this property

  • South Wing forms part of Morgan Hall, an historic country house which is situated on the eastern side of Fairford. Although within the town and close to shops and amenities, the house has the impression of being in the country due to it is unspoilt outlook across park like grounds. Indeed the wide variety of specimen trees give the impression that the house is on the edge of an arboretum.

    The South Wing is older than the main house and is built in the traditional vernacular style with gable elevations and casement windows. Over the last year the house has been comprehensively renovated whilst retaining the original character and features. These include shuttered windows, impressive fireplaces as well as quarry and flagstone floors. There are also exposed timbers in two of the bedrooms.

    The rooms are laid out to include two reception rooms on the
    ground floor, a sitting room with windows to two elevations and a dining room with a fitted dresser and door to the courtyard. The fully fitted kitchen also opens into the garden. On the first floor there is a wonderful drawing room with views of the grounds, a principal bedroom with a dressing room, and a luxury bathroom. There are two further bedrooms on the second floor both with vaulted ceilings and another newly fitted bathroom with marble effect tiling. The central heating system has been replaced.

    The house is approached over a gravelled driveway which is shared with the three other properties that form part of Morgan Hall. To the front of the house is a parking area for two cars. On the eastern side of the house is a principally lawned garden which is separated from the parkland by a ha-ha. More formal borders are found closer to the house along with a sitting out area. A further area of garden is found on the southern side which is defined by beech hedging. There is also a gardener's wc, implement store and an attractive
    walled courtyard.
