Vendors' thoughts: "Swallow Barn has been a fantastic home for us for that last 7 years and we have truly loved our time here. The amazing views and peace first attracted us to this beautiful Cotswold setting and it’s still a wow when we return from our travels. The layout works from cosy couple evenings to social gatherings with friends and family. We love the underfloor heating in the winter and in the summer the thick stone walls keep the house at a perfect temperature. A house which we will forever miss but it’s now time for a new adventure…"
In a nutshell: A superb barn conversion, finished to a high specification, with exceptional views!
Swallow Barn is a fabulous attached converted barn in the heart of the Cotswolds with some of the most breathtaking views. Renovated approximately 7 years ago, the barn has been thoughtfully created and finished to a high specification, providing beautiful living spaces which are ideal for modern day living.
Downstairs the living space, with underfloor heating throughout, is predominantly open-plan giving a wonderful feeling of space. The kitchen/ breakfast room is bright and light with granite work surfaces, integrated appliances and plenty of storage space. Sliding doors give on to the sitting room with views over the terrace and countryside beyond. The oak floor and exposed beams add charm and character and the wood burner provides extra warmth in the colder months.
A handy utility room and a cloakroom are great additions to the ground floor living space.
The first floor, also with underfloor heating throughout, comprises a master bedroom with walk-in wardrobe and an en suite shower room. This is an impressive room with vaulted ceiling and exposed oak beams. There are two further double bedrooms and family bathroom along the hall.
The second floor consists of a fourth bedroom, currently used as a home office, with exposed beams, a pitched room and velux windows.
Discreet and ample storage is provided throughout.
Outside, the front door leads onto a beautiful walled terrace area, ideal for al fresco dining and morning coffees in the summer. The front terrace gives on to the garden, predominantly laid to lawn with beautiful herbaceous borders. The countryside views are far-reaching and truly exceptional. There is a double garage to the side of the gravelled driveway.
