Vendors' thoughts: "Relocating back from California, we were searching for a spacious, comfortable and bright home in beautiful countryside. Viewing the Threshing Tythe Barn, we knew immediately it was more than perfect for us. Modern and tasteful in its recent conversion but retaining so much wonderful character in the stonework, beams and grand entrance. We had found a unique home that is open and bright, providing ideal space for entertaining. Outside, we were given a blank canvas in an empty field. We worked with Graduate Gardeners to create a garden that is structured to be both peaceful and private, as well as providing a haven for wildlife. Our search was driven by the house not the location, but serendipity would have it that we landed in the most wonderful of areas. Not only is it a friendly village, but we are nestled in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, brimming with footpaths that wind through the wooded hillsides of the Cotswold escarpment. And we have the convenience of being near to small towns such as Nailsworth and Stroud, full of independent shopping, pubs and restaurants, and close to a great selection of farm shops. After 10 happy years here, we have set ourselves new horizons. But we hope that we have left a home that is warm, comfortable and has the space to be flexible to whatever the new owners would wish."
In a nutshell: Superb contemporary space in a beautiful period home.

Beautifully renovated, this delightful Cotswold home provides comfortable living spaces with an abundance of natural light throughout. Much care and attention has been put into creating a comfortable and practical family home and there is plenty of charm and character throughout.
An impressive vaulted entrance, flows through beautifully to the open plan sitting and dining rooms, forming a stunning space, exceptionally crafted and laid out, for modern day living. The kitchen/ family room is clearly the heart of the house and wonderful for entertaining family and friends. The room also lends itself perfectly for everyday dining and more informal gatherings. French doors lead to the terrace offering superb indoor outdoor living in the Spring and Summer. A useful utility room keeps the laundry neatly away and is perfect for keeping muddy wellies out of the way after a long country walk.

Outside the garden is delightful with stunning open countryside views. It is predominantly laid to lawn with beautiful hedging, fruit trees, herbaceous borders and sections of pretty wildflowers. The terrace is ideal for sundowners and BBQs in the warmer months and is the perfect spot for relaxing with a good book on a sunny day. A greenhouse comes in handy for the garden enthusiast and a triple garage provides further enclosed parking alongside the driveway. Set in circa 0.9 acres.
