About this property

  • Extremely well appointed stone barn conversion.

    Edge of village position with fine views across the Evenlode Valley.

    Recently comprehensively rebuild and refurbished by the current with attention to detail and installation of quality fittings throughout.

    Whilst fully kitted out for modern living there is a nod to its period charm, including use of oak beams and oak internal doors.

    Modern additions include a bespoke “Hunts of Bloxham” hand-made kitchen, two oven electric Aga with six ring LPG hob, island unit, composite work surfaces, stone flooring, American oak flooring, under floor heating throughout the ground floor, Lutron lighting system, CCTV, heat recovery and fresh air re-circulation system, white bathroom fittings, B&W sound system, triple glazing and sliding picture windows, wood burning stoves, quality light fittings, switches and sockets, quality hand forged iron door furniture and wooden bedroom furniture.

    More importantly for a property this size has been the installation of a bio masse heating system for central heating and hot water.

    The resultant comprehensive and sympathetic refurbishment and modernisation programme provides modern living with a real feeling of light. Space and 21st century comfort. From summer evenings on the terrace soaking up the views to winter night around a cosy fire, it has it all.

    To top this there is plenty of room for the car enthusiast; high quality ‘En Tout Cas' Astro-turf tennis court; land for those seeking the outdoor life, a horse or just privacy; ample gardens and greenhouse for the green fingered.

    There is high speed internet for those looking to bring work home and as a result this would certainly suit weekenders or those wishing to work from home rather than the city, as well as those wishing to take advantage of the easy access to Soho Farmhouse.
