Barn Cottage is an elegant village house with a separate Cotswold stone barn with planning permission.
Originating from the 1600’s, Barn Cottage has recently been the subject of a complete bare wall renovation, and extended by the current owner to a high standard with enormous style and character, to create a wonderfully elegant village house.
The accommodation, which is well appointed and flexible, is arranged over two floors with good ceiling height, creating a light and airy living space. Beautifully presented throughout, high quality fittings and underfloor heating are complimented by original period features, including inglenook fireplaces, mullion windows, elm floorboards, and some exposed elm and oak beams.
Barn Cottage itself offers a beautifully appointed kitchen- breakfast room with an electric Aga, a sitting room with an open inglenook fireplace, and a lovely dining room with a wood burner in another inglenook. A fourth bedroom is found on the ground floor, with French windows into the garden, and a shower room.
The first floor comprises a master bedroom and bathroom, a guest bedroom and bathroom, and 3 further bedrooms with a shower room.
The barn is located close to the main house and is a beautiful, traditional stone barn, which now has planning permission to be converted into a ‘party barn’ with two additional bedrooms and bathrooms, a cloakroom, kitchen and study.
