This is one of our Country Houses
Kimberley was originally a 19th Century thrashing barn which the current owners both converted and extended transforming it into the family home you see today. They purchased the property for its outstanding position, situated on an escarpment on the outskirts of Bournes Green. It enjoys complete privacy and tranquillity with no other houses in sight. The property itself was modernised to an exacting standard with the installation of large double glazed wooden windows and doors throughout as well as the addition of more modern facilities such as air source heating, solar and photovoltaic panels providing eco credentials to this period barn.
Running with the open plan feel of the barn the owners have created two generous living areas with life centring round the large and welcoming kitchen/breakfast/sitting room. The three distinct zones incorporate the fully fitted kitchen, breakfast area and sitting room. The sitting room has a double aspect with a door leading onto the front terrace from which to enjoy the afternoon and evening sun in its Mediterranean style courtyard. Further doors lead through on to the dining hall used for more formal dining and gatherings. This is seamlessly linked with the natural flooring running throughout both this room and the adjacent sitting room. The sitting room has a central fireplace as well as an external door again leading on to the side terrace.
There are two bedrooms on the first floor and also conveniently a bedroom on the ground floor giving many possibilities for flexible family occupation.
The more recently constructed and substantial garage complex was originally built to house caravans and mobile homes. It offers twin carports, both of a substantial size, as well as an adjacent lockable garage/workshop. Above is a large games room and home office. There is huge potential to create an independent dwelling on this site subject to obtaining the necessary permissions.
The property occupies a prime location within the sought-after hamlet of Bournes Green. The nearby villages of Bisley & Oakridge Lynch and the surrounding area are renowned for their natural beauty and are well situated, being 7 miles west of Cirencester and 6 miles east of Stroud. Within the villages there are public houses, primary schools, general stores with Post Offices and Parish Churches. The nearby M4 and M5 motorways provide access to Cheltenham, Gloucester, Bristol, Swindon and the West Midlands. Mainline stations are at Stroud and Kemble and link directly with the train service to London (Paddington).
The property enjoys complete privacy both due to its escarpment position and the quarter mile long private driveway leading through its own land. The block paved driveway is surrounded by a range of herbaceous beds with various seating areas from which to enjoy the lovely views. Surrounding the garage you will find a well-stocked and much loved vegetable garden as well as a chicken run, fruit cages and greenhouse. At various points in the land there are superb vantage points from which to enjoy the far reaching and distant views of the surrounding valley.
The bulk of the land is laid to pasture and is separated by post and rail or mature hedging and interlinked by vehicular gates. The property is a registered small holding and is currently under the higher lever stewardship providing income for the superb management the current owners have undertaken. This could be continued or stopped.
