EQUESTRIAN - This well planned barn conversion occupies one of the most enviable positions in the area and offers complete privacy and incredible views over the 450 acres of National Trust land at Minchinhampton Common.
The current owners bought the original unconverted barn some 20 years ago and have converted it into the well planned and attractive home you see today. They were keen to preserve as many of the barns original features as possible and this is evident in the exposed stone, large open areas and exposed beams. These features have been enhanced by the use of traditional materials.
The current owners were keen to maintain the open feel of the original barn and have created a large open plan kitchen/dining room. This impressive space has a fully fitted kitchen with large island and numerous cupboards. There is also ample space for dining. It enjoys good access to the rear courtyard as well as views of the land to the front. The sitting room is a fun space with double height glazing and further fine views over the grounds and Common beyond. There is a gas effect wood burner with stone surround creating a focal point to this room. The two further ground floor rooms offer a degree of flexibility and are currently used as a hobbies room and study.
The property is accessed via a long private drive and sits well within the formal gardens that surround the house. The property has a healthy income stream, both from renting the land and also crucially the caravan pitch rental business which is Caravan Club affiliated. This occupies the very front of the property and has 5 hard standing pitches with water and power.
The property is bordered by either a stone wall or post and rail and is a ring fence of 5.5 acres with a number of rotational paddocks, all of which are interlinked. The garage, carport and workshop have been recently refurbished and there is also a twin steel winter shelter.
This property is featured by our Equestrian department.
