Vendors' thoughts: "Barton End Farmhouse has been a perfect place to bring up our children in a secure rural hamlet with dogs,horses, ducks and peacocks. The fantastic bridleways, footpaths and cycle routes right on our doorstep have provided us all with endless opportunities to explore the beautiful surrounding countryside. We are blessed with a great selection of local pubs and restaurants and the nearby towns of Nailsworth, Minchinhampton, Tetbury and Stroud have all of the amenities that we need. It has been a dearly loved and happy family home at the heart of a wonderfully supportive community."
In a nutshell: An impressive country home with stunning gardens and grounds, in a superb spot!
Barton End Farmhouse is a beautiful Grade II Listed country home with fabulous gardens and grounds, accessed via a long sweeping driveway flanked on both sides by paddocks. Believed to date originally from the 17th and renovated over the years, this Cotswold home is both impressive and elegant, with generous living spaces and beautiful period features throughout.
Much care and attention has been put into creating a welcoming and practical family home. The rooms are all well-proportioned with good ceiling heights and large sash windows. The house is superb for entertaining family and friends with the dining and drawing rooms coming into their own for drinks and dinner parties. The kitchen and sitting room are ideal for everyday family life.
On the first floor there are six bedrooms, two being en suite, and three bathrooms. A further bedroom or home office area is on the second floor. All the rooms have been beautifully laid out to provide ample discreet storage and wonderful views over the gardens and grounds.
Outside the formal gardens around the house are beautifully landscaped with various different seating areas. The walled garden, a former kitchen garden, is an enchanting space for enjoying al fresco dining and sundowners in the warmer months and a most impressive apple tree provides a focal point in this area.
