    About this property

    • Millers Barn is set at the end of a tree-lined gravelled driveway in an enviable rural setting in Oxfordshire countryside.

      This converted stone barn offers flexible and versatile accommodation of just under 9,000 sq ft (main house) plus 2,500 sq ft of garaging and a 600 sq ft guest flat, totalling just under 12,000 sq ft gross internal.

      Internally the accommodation flows from the entrance hall with a spacious kitchen/breakfast room and orangery, with a recently installed bespoke handmade kitchen, two-oven Aga and "Wolf" kitchen range. This is the hub of the property, perfect for families and informal entertaining.

      The principal rooms enjoy a predominantly southerly aspect and therefore offer a tremendous feeling of space and light.

      The current owners have carried out an extensive improvement programme to include installation of a new kitchen, bathrooms fittings, reclaimed oak flooring, internal doors, several glazed doors and redecoration.

      Extensive entertaining space flows from the entrance hall into the dining room, drawing room and sitting room. For day to day living there is a cosy snug located off the kitchen.

      If you are looking to work from home, then this property is ideal having been upgraded to include a fast internet broadband (100 megs) via Wurzel and there is fibre optic already available for connection in the lane at the end of the drive.

      For weekenders, an “off site” house management system has been set up through remotely controlled heating, lighting and security functionality.

      There is extensive underfloor heating throughout the majority of the ground floor and upstairs light is allowed to pour in to the main landing and hallway through glazed partition walls.

      Crucially for living rurally, there is a back-up generator as well as being connected to private water via a borehole.

      If it is entertaining that inspires you, then this property comes into it's own with versatile bedroom and living space, cinema room, potential office and indoor heated swimming pool complex.

      For those who have a car collection, there is extensive secure garaging.

      Extensive gardens, paved entertaining areas and gravelled parking.

      Paddock grazing with separate access.

      In all about four acres.
