Vendor's thoughts: "East Barn is a fantastic barn conversion with lots of character. I love that most of the rooms are dual aspect, which makes it feel really light and spacious. In autumn and winter I use the log burner in the living room every day, which makes the room very cosy. In summer beautiful pink roses bloom around the front door. It’s also perfectly situated so you can truly feel that you are in the middle of the countryside when you watch lambs playing in the meadow opposite from your bedroom window and the walk to the local pub is across a couple of fields, but at the same time you have the convenience of being 5 minutes drive away from Kemble for the train to London and less than 10 minutes into Cirencester. East Barn makes a lovely family home and I will certainly miss it!”
In a nutshell: A wonderful bright barn conversion with exceptional countryside on your doorstep.
East Barn is a bright and spacious semi-detached Cotswold stone home offering the best of both worlds – ideally located in the heart of the village, yet with the countryside on your doorstep.
The dining room is a wonderful space for entertaining family and friends with the adjoining kitchen giving access to the garden, ideal for al fresco dining in the summer months. Subject to the necessary consents, the kitchen and dining rooms could be combined to make a wonderful open plan kitchen/family room with the large windows allowing an abundance of natural light.
The spacious sitting room, with its superb wood burner, wood floor and exposed beams, is a welcoming and comfortable room in which to relax and unwind. French doors lead to the garden and dual aspect windows make this a bright and tranquil room. The adjacent room would be ideal as a home office or could equally be used as a generous playroom, or as a fourth bedroom.
A handy cloakroom and entrance porch are useful additions to the ground floor living space.
The upstairs comprises the master bedroom with en suite shower room. Two further bedrooms are across the landing along with a family bathroom. All the bedrooms have been thoughtfully renovated and provide ample discreet storage.
Outside, the garden is predominantly laid to lawn with herbaceous borders. The house is nestled in a beautiful cul de sac accessed via a shared driveway. Additionally, there are two garages and private parking for two cars.
