Full description

Tenure: Freehold

A beautifully situated and traditionally built Cotswold house set in approximately 35 acres with modern farm buildings.


Church Farm is situated in the pretty hillside village of Little Rissington which is situated in the Windrush Valley in the Conservation Area and the Cotswold Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty between Bourton-on-the-Water and Stow-on-the-Wold. The village has a village hall and a fine parish church and contains an interesting selection of period stone houses and cottages.
Both nearby Bourton-on-the-Water and Stow-on-the- Wold provide every day amenities such as banks, ibraries, shops and restaurants. The larger centres of Cheltenham and Cirencester provide more extensive cultural, shopping and leisure facilities. The area is known for interesting churches and there are important gardens at Hidcote and Kiftsgate and further afield there is the magnificent Blenheim Palace.


Church Farm was constructed in 2002 to create a spacious family house with well laid out accommodation set over three floors. The property is built predominantly from reclaimed Cotswold stone beneath a reconstituted and coursed tiled roof with painted timber casement windows. At the time of construction great attention to detail was shown to create a new house in the Cotswold vernacular taking great advantage of the rural setting.
Internally the property provides spacious and comfortable accommodation incorporating some traditional period features associated with older buildings including a wealth of exposed ceiling timbers and an attractive chimneypiece with wood burner and herringbone detail in the sitting room. The principal rooms of the house are of good proportions and are ideally suited to entertaining as well as family life.
There is a superb farmhouse kitchen with a Rayburn oven set in a brick fireplace, plentiful kitchen units and space for a dining table and chairs and occasional furniture. The bedrooms and bathrooms are set out over two floors and take advantage of the views across the surrounding countryside.
The property is approached along an ascending drive terminating in a generous gravelled courtyard to the front. An adjoining double carport with storage has tallet steps leading up to a comfortable studio flat which is ideal for staff accommodation.
The gardens are simply laid out and offer considerable scope for the garden enthusiast to make their mark and to further complement the house. Church Farm occupies a partly elevated and most attractive position on the edge of a rural and unspoilt village with commanding views across undulating countryside from both the house, gardens and land. Scope exists to enlarge the house and add a swimming pool and tennis court subject to the usual consents.

Equestrian Facilities
Set away from the property to the west is a range of modern general purpose farm buildings which are used as part of a farming business. By the nature of their appearance, size and structure, they lend themselves to other associated uses, subject to gaining the necessary consents to do so.
Briefly they comprise:-
Building 1: modern clear span, steel portal frame building with concrete floor, dedicated store and workshop measuring approximately 80'1 x 63'7 (24.42m x 19.39m). Electricity and water are connected. (Potential for further loose boxes.)
Building 2: modern clear span, steel portal frame building with concrete floor and concrete block partitions measuring approximately 72'6 x 59'8 (22.10m x 18.19m). Electricity and water are connected.
Land: The land lies principally to the north and west of the house and comprises gently sloping permanent pasture paddocks with traditional post and rail fencing and mature native hedgerows. There is an automatic water supply to all the paddocks. Some of the land retains ancient ridges and furrows. To the far boundary is a small mature copse. The land is ideal for grazing or hay.

Acreage: 35.2 Acres


From Bourton-on-the-Water take the High Street southeasterly out of the village towards The Rissingtons. Continue for approximately one-and-a-half miles until reaching Little Rissington. At the sharp right hand bend, turn left alongside the telephone kiosk into a private road and continue until reaching the entrance to Church Farm.
