Constructed in 1969, but extended considerably in the last year, Debden Hollow now combines a Grade II Listed architecturally significant property, inspired by Frank Lloyd Wright, with the convenience and style of modern day living.
Designed by renowned local architect Robert Harvey, with split level accommodation throughout, the quirkiness of the design, with attention to detail, offers a modern adaptation of a traditional family home, with under floor heating in the new extension and sensory lighting in the bedrooms.
Reception space comprises a drawing room, with Riva 76 cassette wood burning fireplace and bi-folding doors onto a terrace and a sitting room with open fireplace linking through into a kitchen/breakfast room with bespoke kitchen units with granite worktops, fitted with Neff appliances; microwave, coffee machine, oven, hob, Bosch dishwasher and space for a fridge/freezer.
Taking advantage of its setting, a balcony wraps around the kitchen and sitting room providing a platform to view both the property grounds and the countryside beyond.
Accessible from the kitchen, stairs lead down to a utility room/kitchen with fitted units, oven, hob and space for washing machine and tumble drier, but with external access, and a bedroom and shower room on the same level, could be usable as secondary accommodation.
Two further bedrooms, both with en-suite bath/shower rooms and one with a dressing room, with external access, offer spacious and light accommodation. Further bedroom/study and separate shower room. All bathrooms have under floor heating.
Triple garage, stone built coach house (believed to be the old fire station) and a row of four timber-built stables (in need of repair) offer flexibility in their use, whilst adding the opportunity for development.
Debden Hollow has been extended and renovated by the current owners and is not currently lived in. In some areas details such as floor coverings and light fittings have been left with the intention that the incoming purchaser will be able to add their mark depending on personal tastes.
Built into a hill, Debden Hollow sits almost centrally to its plot and affords countryside views with the addition of a river running along its boundary, at the bottom of the bank. With established trees and shrubs, the property is both private and secure and creates a feeling of isolation, whilst being within close proximity of a bustling village.
From M40 (J15) take the A429 following signs for Stow-on-the-Wold and Cirencester. Continue along the road and take the first left hand turn as signed to Barford. Proceed into the village and where you reach the small roundabout, take the left hand turn. Continue out of the village following the road bottom of the hollow turn left onto a tarmac drive and, where the drive forks, take the left hand fork as signed Debden Hollow.
