A rare and exciting opportunity to create a dream home from a charming, part converted, Cotswold stone barn in a beautiful hamlet
Planning Permission has been granted to convert this period stone barn into a truly beautiful Cotswold home. Undeniably the appeal is to create a fine property in an idyllic, true countryside setting. The current approved plans allow for a four bedroom stone home with two reception rooms in addition to a superb kitchen overlooking the extensive gardens. The current design could be reinvented to include two further bedrooms on the second floor allowing a blank canvas for development and to create a home that suits individual requirements.
The proposed planning shows Skye Barn fronted by a central courtyard set behind double gates giving access to the off-road parking area and double garage. To the rear, leading out from the kitchen/dining room, is a large patio area, which enjoys superb views over the generous garden. The large rear garden is currently part lawn, a further development opportunity. A noteworthy feature of the garden is the privacy it offers, backing onto open fields with unique countryside views.
Much of the charm of Skye Barn is due to its setting, sited within the picturesque hamlet of Westfield, a quintessential cluster of pretty Cotswold barns and homes in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The location is extremely accessible, having the A40 within four miles of the property. Indeed, the A40 provides good east/west access to London, Cheltenham and the M5, whilst the nearby Fosseway gives excellent north/south access. Also nearby is the village of Andoversford which offers a primary school and The Royal Oak Inn. Bourton on the Water, less than five miles away, has a wider range of amenities as well as the popular Cotswold School. The beautiful town of Cheltenham, just ten miles away, has a wide range of excellent schools including The Cheltenham Ladies' College, Cheltenham College, St Edward's and Dean Close. As well as superb educational facilities the town is well known for its restaurants, fashion district and the many festivals that it holds including music and food as well as the cricket and National Hunt festival. Walking and riding countryside in and around Westfield is at its best, there are also a number of golf courses on the edge of the hamlet including Shipton Golf Course and the prestigious Naunton Downs.
