Vendors' thoughts: “We have lived in The Cotswold thirty years and of all our homes Oxbyre has been our favourite. The garden room was built six years ago and was the best investment we have ever made. It really brings the garden and the house together. During the construction the garden had been used as a building site so we decided to redesign the garden and at the same time add lighting to all the steps. The garden now looks amazing in the summer and truly fantastic when it goes dark. We will always treasure our thirteen happy years at The Oxbyre. It has been a wonderful house for entertaining. The ground floor flows beautifully as the kitchen is in the middle of the house. We have made lots of great friends in the village, mostly at our local watering hole, The Seven Tuns. Chedworth is an amazing village, it is ideally located for the motorways and airports and is surrounded by the most amazing countryside. The village is so beautiful and we are really going to miss the rolling hills. We have thoroughly enjoyed putting our stamp on the house and hope that the new owners will enjoy this happy home as much as we have done."
In a nutshell: A sensational Cotswold home in the heart of a fabulous village.
The Oxbyre is a superb and enchanting Cotswold stone village house. Located in the heart of Chedworth, this beautiful home, originally an ox barn, sits in a fabulous position overlooking the valley beyond with easy access to wonderful country walks.
The Oxbyre has been thoughtfully renovated to provide comfort, alongside practical living spaces and elegant designs. The house is equipped with state-of-the-art lighting and Bang and Olufsen speakers are integrated in almost all of the rooms in the house.
The reception rooms have been carefully designed with love and attention and flow beautifully from the entrance hall.
The sitting room/ library, with its open fireplace, is a superb room in which to relax with a good book or enjoy and well-deserved a gin & tonic with friends. French doors lead through to the office which could equally be a stylish cinema room, with its panelled walls and practical shutters.
The adjacent hallway doubles as a utility room with access to a quaint terrace with stunning views over the valley beyond.
The kitchen is a homely room in which to entertain family and friends and the dual Aga adds additional heat in the cooler months, making this a gorgeous room in which to cook up a feast.
The living room opens into the oak framed garden room to create a generously proportioned, bright and light living space with a Clearview wood burner and 180° views of the terrace and garden.
A shower room with loo is a useful additional to the ground floor living space.
Upstairs is the master suite with jacuzzi bath, walk-in shower and a separate dressing area. There is also a further double bedroom with en suite shower room. The third bedroom is accessed via a staircase at the other end of the house.
Careful thought has been put in to creating ample yet discreet storage throughout the house.
The garden is a haven of peace and tranquillity. Lovingly landscaped and maintained, it is made up of various areas with herbaceous borders, vibrant flowerbeds, Beech hedging, lawn areas and a garden spring at its heart. There is also a stunning Victorian greenhouse, a store and a Cotswold stone garage with attic storage.
The driveway provides private off-road parking.
