    About this property

    • Formally a cattle barn and dairy, The Old Shippon is a beautifully positioned home enjoying a superb far reaching outlook. It has been sympathetically converted to make the most of its historic use with vaulted ceilings, exposed beams and feature fireplaces.

      Inside, the kitchen/dining room is clearly the heart of the home. It is perfect for family life and entertaining. It is centred around the Aga and island with ample space for a dining table. There are lovely views from the kitchen out over the garden, paddock and neighbouring countryside, alongside the majority of the rooms at The Old Shippon. Adjacent to the kitchen/dining room is a useful utility room and cloakroom and to the north side is a double aspect bedroom with a walk in wardrobe and modern en suite bathroom and separate shower.

      A room of particular interest is the stunning sitting room, full of natural light, exposed beams and French doors leading out onto the terrace. There is also a feature fireplace with woodburning stove enhancing the character and making for a very special room. The south wing offers a further three bedrooms (one en suite) and a family bathroom.

      Gardens and Grounds
      Outside doesn't disappoint with uninterrupted panoramic countryside views. In total there is approximately 2.28 acres of established gardens and fenced paddock alongside a terrace directly outside the property – perfectly placed for alfresco dining and to make the most of the outstanding setting. The garden is laid mainly to lawn, bordered by mature shrubs and trees, and features a beautiful mixed border and cottage garden. A recent addition is the impressive sweet chestnut framed car port and studio with a further store room above. To the front is a gravelled drive providing ample parking for numerous cars.
