    About this property

    • Meadow Barn is a substantial four/five bedroom period stone barn in a lovely elevated edge of village location. Potential exists to extend subject to the usual consents. Situated in 1.45 acres of immaculate mature gardens, this property includes two detached one-bedroom cottages, ideal for a variety of purposes including granny annexe, home office or guest/staff accommodation. There are also extensive outbuildings.

      Access to the main house is through the original cart entrance, now fully encased in glass, leading into a light and spacious double height reception hall with flagstone floor. Beyond is a large drawing room with exposed beams, window seats, fireplace with wood-burning stove, and a dining room with space for a study area. There is a generous, vaulted kitchen/breakfast room fitted with a range of units and quartz worktops, an inset sink and integrated appliances including a fridge and dishwasher, and a cooker hood. There is also a triple aspect garden room, utility room and cloakroom. The study could be used as a bedroom and there is scope to create an en suite utilising the plumbing already in place.

      Upstairs is a galleried landing and partly vaulted principal bedroom suite with fitted wardrobes, a dressing area and en suite bathroom. There are two further bedrooms off the landing along with a family bathroom, and on the second floor, an attic gallery landing, double bedroom and en suite shower room with limestone tiling and contemporary fittings.

      Within the grounds is Amy's Cottage, designed as a granny annexe but ideal as a home office, complete with an open plan living room/kitchen, double bedroom with en suite shower room and a south facing courtyard garden and parking area.

      Daisy's Cottage is more recently converted and features an open plan living room with a well appointed kitchen, double bedroom and bathroom. It also has parking and a private enclosed courtyard garden. Daisy Cottage is currently used as a successful holiday let which generates a good income.

      Approached via electric gates and a private driveway and adjoining farmland bounded by Cotswold stone walls, the stunning gardens that surround the property include an enclosed paved rose garden, sweeping areas of lawn dotted with specimen trees and shrubs, summerhouses, dining terrace and a large ornamental pond with water feature, plus a copse of trees. There is also a range of versatile outbuildings including garage, workshop, woodstore and storage shed with fireplace.
