Location - Orchard Barn is located immediately west of Minchinhampton, amongst open farmland with far reaching views. It is less than 15 minutes drive from Cirencester and Kemble Station (London Paddington scheduled from 75 minutes) and about 17 miles from Cheltenham, so within reach of the town's excellent schools. Crucially, it is also close to the very popular Beaudesert Park Preparatory School on Minchinhampton Common, the latter incorporating one of three challenging 18 hole golf courses locally and a wonderful open space on which to ride or walk. There is a network of bridleways in the immediate area with it being very 'horsey'. Gatcombe Park, immediately adjacent, host regular horse trials and the property is almost equidistant from two major polo clubs (Cirencester Park and The Beaufort), and there is a popular pony club. Minchinhampton has a general store, post office and excellent butcher amongst other shops, as well as a health centre and dental surgery. Nearby Nailsworth and Stroud both have Farmers Markets (the latter nationally award winning) and Stroud also has a large Waitrose plus two other major supermarkets.

Description - Orchard Barn is a Grade II listed former 18th century threshing barn which has been skilfully converted into a spectacular spacious home with a lovely garden and level paddocks immediately adjacent, in all about 9 acres. Set on the edge of a group of similarly attractive former agricultural buildings and the old farmhouse surrounded by farmland, Orchard Barn is secluded but not isolated. A tree lined gravel drive leads through an arch to a courtyard opposite the front entrance to the barn. The accommodation comprises an entrance hall, four reception rooms, farmhouse kitchen with breakfast room, utility room, two cloakrooms (one with a special sink for washing dogs) and a boiler room. Upstairs, are master and guest bedroom suites, three further double bedrooms and further bathrooms, while across the courtyard is a potential annexe or games room with adjacent bathroom and a double garage. The barn retains some magnificent architectural features and its main reception rooms are flooded with light. They overlook a broad stone flag terrace to the garden at the rear. The former is flanked by the land, one main field and a smaller paddock, both in excellent heart, level, watered and flanked by hedges for shelter. They amount to about 8 acres.
