An appealing 4 bedroom period Cotswold stone barn conversion, situated on a rural farmyard development in the Windrush Valley, with versatile accommodation, two home offices and a delightful landscaped garden with far reaching views.
The Old Barn is situated on a courtyard development adjoining a Grade II listed mid 17th century farmhouse, surrounded by farmland and with the advantage of a rural setting without feeling isolated. One of five dwellings on the development, The Old Barn is a pleasingly symmetrical conversion of a building believed to date back to the 18th Century. Designed with features alluding to the original building it retains a traditional appearance including arrow slit windows and timber barn doors, which frame the glazed porch. This is echoed on the garden elevation, with similar doors framing the glazed rear doors and picture window above. Internally, sympathetic details include some exposed stone walling and exposed beams and timbers. Presented with a calm and neutral palette, The Old Barn provides comfortable and versatile accommodation, with bedrooms over two floors and a playroom on the first floor that could easily be used as a snug or teenager’s study/TV room, or a fifth bedroom if required. Two fully insulated garden rooms provide quiet home office space. The Garden is a delight, carefully landscaped and with far reaching views towards the spire of Leafield Church. It is a perfect foil for the barn with careful planting and various levels and seating areas providing interest.
Crawley is a small rural settlement that originally developed around agriculture on the northern slopes of a secluded valley of The River Windrush. Around the start of the 16th century, a mill was added as part of the expansion of the cloth and blanket industry within Witney, which remained active until the 1970’s. There are two pubs in the village, The Lamb and The Crawley Inn.
