About this property

  • Paddock Barn is a spacious detached property with an independent 2 bedroom annexe (approx. 846 sq ft) situated in a sought-after location on the edge of the popular village of Castle Combe.

    The property offers well presented and versatile accommodation throughout arranged over two floors. It benefits from having a detached, self-contained two bedroom annexe/holiday cottage and paddocks which could be suitable for equestrian interests. The original barn is believed to date back to 1691 and has been extended and converted in the 1970's to create a wonderful family home which offers a wealth of characterful features.

    The accommodation to the main house includes an entrance porch, welcoming entrance hallway, kitchen/breakfast room, utility room, large sitting room with wood burner, dining room, study, large self-contained office (formerly the double garage) and cloakroom. To the first floor are four good sized bedrooms and two bathrooms.

    The detached annexe offers an entrance hallway, sitting room with wood burner, kitchenette, two bedrooms, shower room and separate cloakroom.

    Outside
    The property has a gated access leading to a sweeping gravel driveway providing ample parking for a number of vehicles. There is access to a garage/outbuilding with double opening doors. There is also access off the courtyard to the annexe. To the rear are landscaped gardens, with a patio terrace complete with water feature and access to the paddocks.

    The rear gardens and paddocks are private and enclosed and are ideal for a growing family or those with an equine interest.

I really like the flexibility this home has to offer with the large home office, annexe and paddocks. It is also well-placed for communications.
