Village Farmhouse is a delightful Grade II Listed property that dates from the early 17th Century with later additions. It includes Village Barn, built from traditional Cotswold stone, converted to optimise light and space. This building is equipped to the highest specification and would be most suitable for other ancillary uses such as additional guest accommodation or dependant relatives. Approached through a wooden five bar gate leading to a gravelled courtyard, Village Farmhouse has many traditional features including shuttered sash windows, exposed beams and large open fireplaces. The front door opens into an entrance hall with useful storage and a cloakroom. From here a door opens into a light and well-proportioned drawing room with antique oak floorboards, a large open fireplace with limestone surround and wooden shuttered windows. A further door leads through to the dining room which has an inglenook fireplace, stairs to the first floor and French doors onto the courtyard outside. Beyond the dining room another door leads into the sitting room, again with shuttered windows and a welcoming open fireplace.
From the drawing room, an arch opens into the kitchen/breakfast room with a natural stone-tiled floor, wood burning stove and painted kitchen units. The work surface incorporates a 5 ring gas hob and sink, equipped with a separate water filter tap, built in dishwasher and double Gaggenau self-cleaning ovens. At the far end a door opens into the rear lobby providing access to a separate larder, a utility/boiler room which provides further extensive storage, a large sink and plumbing for both a washing machine and dryer.
From the dining room, a staircase rises to a split level landing, off which is a principal guest room with built in storage, an en-suite bathroom with jacuzzi bath and separate cubicle for the power shower. There are two further, sizeable bedrooms and a family bathroom on this floor. From the landing, stairs lead up to the second floor to the master bedroom suite. This comprises a large double bedroom with built in storage cupboards and an en-suite bathroom with free standing panelled bath, twin basins and further generous hanging and shelved storage.
Attached to the house and accessed from outside is an office and family games room.
This spacious barn is ancillary to the house and has been converted to an exceptionally high standard. It provides light and airy accommodation on two floors. The front door opens into an entrance hall off which is a cloakroom and utility room/store. An antiqueware door leads into the architecturally impressive principal reception room. The vaulted ceiling and large glazed panels ensure that the room is flooded with light throughout the day. Adjacent to the reception room is the kitchen/dining room designed specifically with large scale entertaining in mind. Fitted with extensive kitchen units, the work surfaces incorporate a five ring gas hob, built in Gaggenau double ovens, with warming cupboard, a double Belfast sink with mixer and filter taps, and two built in dishwashers. A door opens to the garden.
Wooden stairs rise to the first floor landing, off which are three bedrooms, currently used as treatments rooms. The bathroom is entirely finished with tadelakt waterproof lime plastering. It comprises Corian twin basins, a generous panelled bath and shower cubicle. In addition there is a separate cloakroom.
Attached to the barn is a two bay carport with useful storage above.
