Vendor's thoughts: "Green Oldbury was a complete labour of love, designing it ourselves and completely renovating it from a cowshed to doing all the landscaping and finding bespoke craftsmen to create the windows! We love the living space, with a young family, this has been so fantastic as you can cook whilst watching the children playing in the garden in front of that amazing view or whilst they play down by the fire. My boys have loved the rooms upstairs, and my parents have loved the ground floor living with no steps. It really has been the best of family homes. We hope someone else will love it like we have."
Green Oldbury House is situated in a small hamlet just north of the beautiful Costwold village of Elkstone. The village boasts wonderful open gardens each
year and the Green Dragon pub is a short stroll down the lane towards Cobberley. The nearby village of Colesbourne hosts a garage, post office and
shop and stunning Cowley Manor, offering wonderful spa facilities, is a short drive away.

Entering into an impressive gravel driveway with far reaching views, Green Oldbury House is a recently converted barn set in a stunning elevated position, beautifully nestled in almost 5 acres of gardens and paddocks. This superb country home offers buyers the opportunity to acquire a very special property.
Renovated to an exacting standard, the house has been tastefully and thoughtfully created, providing ample and discreet storage with attention to detail throughout.
On arrival the entrance hall houses a boot area, plenty of storage for outdoor wear and a downstairs cloakroom.
The 50ft main reception area with vaulted ceiling basks in an abundance of natural light and is, without doubt, the focal point of this home and where any buyer will spend a great deal of time. The kitchen has a granite-topped central island with breakfast bar area and bespoke wall and floor units. On the ground floor are six pairs of floor-to-ceiling French doors opening on to the terrace and gardens. Due to their size, these beautifully crafted, timber-framed doors allow an enormous amount of natural light to flood the house. The underfloor heating throughout the downstairs provides a wonderful feeling of warmth. Of particular note is the fantastic picture window in the dining area with wonderful window seats making this the perfect place to enjoy the superb views across the gardens and countryside beyond.
The ground floor provides two thoughtfully laid out double bedrooms, both with en-suite bath/shower rooms. Upstairs are two further bedrooms with white painted floorboards and a family bathroom. The laundry room is very conveniently located on this floor.
French doors from the kitchen lead out to the terrace area, which is perfect for entertaining and outside dining. The terrace directly overlooks the gardens, which are predominantly lawned, level and enclosed by Cotswold stone walls or hedging. The land surrounding the property on three sides totals almost 5 acres and sits immediately beyond the gardens. The views are outstanding.
