Pipistrelle Barn is a modern conversion of a period Cotswold stone barn nestled in a small collection of houses surrounded by open countryside. Originally converted from a Cotswold stone open sided barn in 2009 it is rare to find such a recently converted barn in such a beautiful rural location. The unique layout of the accommodation includes a well-proportioned main house together with a substantial adjacent annexe. Currently used as a home business this could provide an income stream or accommodation for dependent relatives.
The property sits beautifully within the formal gardens that wrap around the house with the adjacent paddock beyond. The house itself has been designed to make full use of the views provided by the grounds as most of the rooms are double if not triple aspect.
On entering the property through its floor to ceiling glazed central hallway you are immediately struck by the barn feel with the double height, vaulted and galleried staircase creating a striking entrance. The main living area takes up one side of the house with a semi open-plan kitchen/breakfast/dining/living room. This is a substantial room and the perfect day round space with double aspect and access to the rear patio and garden beyond. The sitting area has a feature wood burning fire and links seamlessly to the kitchen with its traditional stone floors. The kitchen has exposed beams and vaulted ceiling and is fitted with a range of modern facilities including integrated appliances, granite worktops and a central island which creates a focal point to this lovely room. A bank of doors and windows provide access to the rear patio. The kitchen is backed up by a useful utility and plant room. The other side of the house offers a more intimate sitting area, library/study area, and a ground floor cloakroom.
The top floor has been re-configured since its original conversion and now provides three bedrooms. One elevation is used as a master suite with walk-in wardrobe and bathroom leaving a further two bedrooms and wet-room on the other side. Within the property there is a planned bat mitigation roost.
The adjacent annexe, a former period outbuilding, has been cleverly converted into a fully independent annexe and provides a 27 x 20 ft. open plan kitchen/dining/sitting room with full modern facilities as well as 2 bedroom wing.
Fairford is an attractive and historic market town which straddles the River Coln about 8 miles east of Cirencester with an excellent cross-section of shops, and facilities, including primary and secondary schools, doctor’s surgery and dentist. At its heart is the magnificent St Mary's Church which adjoins the top end of the High Street. The countryside to the north of Fairford is exceptionally attractive and is widely regarded as having some of the most outstanding scenery in the vicinity of Cirencester.
The property is approached via a long single drive leading from the main road to the five properties which form this enclave. Twin five bar wooden gates provide private access via the Cotswold stone wall into a substantial front parking area with side access to the carport and garage discretely located behind the house.
The gardens themselves are mainly laid to lawn. A patio links the garden with the living space and enjoys a south facing orientation. It offers excellent privacy with evergreen borders, a vegetable garden, workshop, greenhouse and raised beds which lead on to the fully enclosed paddock. The garage complex contains a double open car port with vaulted roof and adjacent workshop/garage.
