    About this property

    • Situated on the outskirts of the village, Hewel Barn enjoys glorious views over open countryside to the Otmoor Nature Reserve. With origins believed to date to the 1800s the property has evolved over the years, most recently having been extended and sympathetically renovated by the currently owners. Finished to a high specification, features include wooden and natural stone flooring, with underfloor heating to parts and double glazed wooden windows.

      A large inviting kitchen with open plan dining area is the heart of the home. With bespoke cupboards and four door Aga appliances include electric hob, separate oven, two under counter fridges, dishwasher and wine fridge. Doors open directly onto terraces at the front and rear. Leading up from the kitchen is the garden room, overlooking and opening onto the south west facing garden.
