A superb Cotswold country house with 12 acres.
Hoggs Barn is a stunning property extending to over 5,800 sq. ft. with far reaching views and comprehensive equestrian facilities set in over 12 acres. Originally a period Cotswold barn, Hoggs Barn was converted and extended utilising Cotswold stone and other traditional materials to create a family home, with first-class, flexible accommodation, surrounded by its own land with open countryside beyond. In 2021 the central heating system was replaced and double glazing installed throughout creating a highly energy efficient home. The property lies between the towns of Moreton-in-Marsh and Chipping Norton on the borders of Gloucestershire, Oxfordshire and Warwickshire.
Internally the property retains the expected period features associated with a building of this type and age. Attached to the original part of the barn is a substantial east wing forming further accommodation over two floors. There are four reception rooms which are all perfect for family life and entertaining. The drawing room is superb with a magnificent fireplace housing a wood burning stove. Double doors open to the gardens. In addition there is a sitting room, family room and dining room. The kitchen is stunning with an excellent range of cabinets with integrated appliances and a large island unit.
The principal bedroom accommodation is set out over the first floor. The accommodation on the third floor provides further bedrooms and a play room, ideal for use as a children's floor. The property is beautifully presented and has been decorated in a subtle palette of contemporary colours, creating a calm and light home.
Lying to the east of the barn is a well-built u-shaped range of loose boxes beyond which is a yard complete with hay barn and an all-weather arena. The stable yard is constructed of natural and reconstituted stone arranged around a central courtyard. The yard briefly comprises 9 loose boxes, tack room, gym, kitchenette, WC and office. A central archway provides access to an enclosed all weather arena measuring 40m x 20m adjacent to which is an open fronted 3-bay hay barn for general purpose storage covered parking for up to nine cars. The barn is ideal for a variety of uses including garaging. The stable yard is extremely versatile and has enormous potential for conversion to various uses, subject to the usual consent. The current owners have converted two stables to create a gym and a home office.
Beyond the stable yard there is direct access to four adjacent paddocks. These are stock proof with post and rail fencing. An automatic water supply is connected. The paddocks on the northern boundary are stream fed with drinking places.
The gardens and grounds are of simple layout and incorporate formal and informal areas with attractive seating areas taking advantage of the unspoilt rural outlook. The area of landscaping to the south west of the barn incorporates a water feature surrounded by herbaceous borders. The property is approached from the lane via electric gates. The stable yard is accessed from the secondary drive.
The sale of Hoggs Barn provides a rare opportunity to acquire a versatile property set in gardens and grounds with adjacent paddocks.
