    About this property

    • Formerly a barn dating from the mid-1800s and extended over time, Little Court retains its original character which combines sympathetically with modern finishes to create an immaculate, light and extremely stylish property with a wonderful flow.

      The soaring proportions of the entrance hall create a marvellous first impression. Beyond is the stunning sitting room with vaulted ceiling, exposed timbers and a magnificent stone fireplace from Bordeaux housing a wood burning stove. The kitchen/dining room is the perfect place for the family to gather at the heart of the home and is fitted with an excellent range of painted cabinets with a butler's sink with Franke ‘Swiss Pro' tap, and an Aga. A substantial island unit with electric hob and oven provides extra preparation space and storage. There is ample room for a large table and chairs. The kitchen leads to a well-proportioned snug with glazed doors opening to the garden. To the rear of the property is a snug/library which can be used as a ground floor bedroom. Beyond this is what could be described as the domestic wing containing a boot room, utility, WC and pantry/wine room. Completing the ground floor is a wet room and WC. There is a high quality lift between the ground floor and the principal bedroom which allows easy movement between floors and future proofs the property.

      An oak and glass staircase rises from the hall to the superb first floor bedroom accommodation. The spacious principal bedroom suite is luxurious and benefits from a dressing room and en suite bathroom with a Duravit WC toilet which combines sleek design, innovative features and modern technology. The dressing room could easily be converted into an additional bedroom. There are two further bedrooms which share a family bathroom.

      A short distance from the main house is a detached stone annexe comprising an open plan sitting/dining/kitchen, bedroom and a shower room. Planning consent has been obtained to extend the annexe by incorporating the current garden store.

      The property is approached through electric timber gates. There is a large area for parking in front of the house with manicured hedging and Cotswold stone walls topped with wrought iron railings separating it from the gardens which slope away from the property to the rear. The actual site of the house, terracing and parking has been levelled. To the rear is a large paved terrace dotted with planting. The majority of the garden is laid to lawn and interspersed with specimen trees and shrubs.
