Guide price

  • Bedrooms: 4
Forming an oasis of calm in the centre of one of the North Cotswold's most popular villages and having one of the most outstanding privately screened southwesterly facing gardens to the rear, this deceptively spacious detached two storey, four bedroomed village retreat was built in the 1980's and has the further advantage of not only its own garage but off street parking for three vehicles.

Even those that know the village well will have probably driven past Barnbrook without knowing it was there, being so well screened from School Lane and having its own well hidden garden, also to the front.

The property has a spacious through living room with a substantial Inglenook fireplace and patio doors to the rear, forming a picture window of the delightful mature gardens. There is a separate dining room and a spacious breakfast kitchen, also with direct access onto the garden and some delightful views. The aspect of the property creates a light and airy atmosphere to the rear and two of the four bedrooms also enjoy this excellent aspect.

The property was built with predominantly latch and brace doors, there is a ground floor cloakroom and a bathroom/wc and a separate shower room on the first floor.

The attached garage has a small workroom to the rear and this area could be further developed subject to the usual planning consent. There is almost a full complement of recently installed timber framed leaded paned sealed unit double glazed windows to the majority of rooms.

The property is located mid way between the High Street and Blockley brook, giving access to a wide range of local walks and the surrounding countryside mid way between the village green and Dovedale woods.

The Crown Hotel is only a short walk away as is Blockley village shop and tearooms, now a national hub for the village and the Great Western Arms just a short walk beyond. There are a wide range of groups and social activities to enjoy if required as well as the peace and solitude of your own environment.

Blockley is located mid way between the Cotswold cafe society of Chipping Campden and the more traditional market town of Moreton in Marsh where there are rail links to London Paddington.
