A detached village house in landscaped gardens
Harp Farm is situated at the village end of Moor Lane which is a private road off Roman Way. Moor Lane leads to the Oxford Way footpath and goes over Greystones Farm which is owned by the Gloucestershire Wildlife Trust. Subsequently there are miles of wonderful walks on the doorstep. Within a few hundred metres is a doctor's surgery, community centre, the Cotswold School, leisure centre and supermarket. The location offers both everyday amenities and open countryside to explore. The central part of the property was built in about 1690 and was a farmhouse with dairy and farmyard. The property was extended in about 1820 and 1920 and the three gables seen today represent the three stages of construction.
The property offers traditional, well-balanced accommodation laid out over two floors. The entrance hall provides access to the principal rooms comprising a large sitting room with open fireplace, a formal dining room with wonderful bay window and a good size study with fitted bookshelves. The sitting room leads to the kitchen/breakfast which is fitted with a range of country-style wall and base units. There is plenty of space for a table and chairs. The kitchen leads to the utility room with a door to the garden, which is ideal for muddy dogs and boots. There is a cloakroom within the utility room. A staircase from the hall leads to the first floor comprising four excellent bedrooms, three with fitted cupboards. Two of the bedrooms have en suite shower rooms whilst bedrooms three and four share a well-appointed bathroom.
Harp Farm sits centrally within its plot with gardens to both the front and rear. A driveway leads through the front garden to the double garage which lies adjacent to the house. The front garden is mainly laid to lawn with a footpath winding to the front door. The rear gardens are mature with well-stocked beds and a paved terrace for al fresco dining.
The stable and cowsheds are perfect for storage but also offer great scope for anyone wishing to convert them to create a home office, granny annexe or bed and breakfast accommodation, subject to the usual consents.
