A deceptively spacious barn conversion in the heart of a popular community. With living accommodation in excess of 2500sqft; a generous kitchen/breakfast room, two reception rooms, four bedrooms, a good size garden and driveway parking, this is a very versatile family home.
Priors Marston is situated in undulating South Warwickshire countryside close to the Northamptonshire borders.
The village, with many fine period houses, has a post office, parish church, thriving sports club, village hall, pub providing B&B accommodation, as well as a highly sought after independent primary school (free to village residents).
Independent schools include prep schools; Bilton Grange (Dunchurch), Winchester House, (Brackley) Arnold Lodge (Leamington), Quainton House, (Northampton) and senior; Princethorpe (nr Leamington), Warwick (boys) and Kings High (girls) (Warwick), Bloxham and Stowe schools. The village also falls in the catchment area for Southam College (rated outstanding by Ofsted)
The nearby town of Southam (6 miles) provides for more specialised requirements with Banbury (14 miles) and Leamington Spa (13 miles), also offering restaurants, cinema and shopping centres.
The village lies between the M1 (J16), 16 miles and the M40 (J11), 12 miles.
Mainline railway stations at Banbury, London/Marylebone (about 60 minutes peak time) and Rugby, London/Euston (about 55 minutes).
Sporting activities in the area include horse racing at Stratford-upon-Avon and Warwick; golf at Staverton and Hellidon Lakes Country Club (including gym, indoor pool and 10 pin bowling); full indoor sports complex at Banbury.
One of six converted barns that once belonged to Westfield Farm House, 4 Westfield Barns has been tastefully and creatively improved and extended to create a versatile family home.
An oak framed canopy porch provides shelter to remove shoes and boots before entering the property into the entrance hall. From here there is access to a useful utility room laid with hard wearing tumbled quarry tiles which has a sink unit, storage and space for a washing machine and tumble dryer.
The hub of the house is undoubtedly the generous kitchen/breakfast room with its large central island, Rangemaster cooker and Smeg extractor over. There are ample wall and base units finished in duck egg blue and topped with oak work surfaces as well as space for a dishwasher and free standing fridge/freezer. Double doors from here open into a comfortable sitting/dining room and French doors open onto the rear gardens.
The 'L' shaped sitting/dining room has oak flooring and bespoke hardwood bi-fold doors that also connect this room to the garden. A Dunsley Highlander wood burning stove rests on a stone hearth with picture windows either side that provide views onto the gardens.
In addition to this room there is a second sitting room/snug which provides a peaceful place to read or study.
The property boasts four bedrooms over two floors; the master bedroom being located on the ground floor has a contemporary en suite shower room with under floor heating. A separate ground floor shower room also with under floor heating is located off the main hallway.
Stairs at the far end of the hallway ascend to the first floor and on to a multifunctional landing space which provides ample space to either work from home or serve as a play area for children. Either side of the landing there is access to eave storage cupboards as well as two good size bedrooms each with built in storage.
At the far end of the landing there is a family bathroom fitted with oak flooring, a free standing roll top bath, low level WC and a pedestal sink.
A good size guest bedroom completes the accommodation and this, like the rest of the house has ample storage including a dressing area with two banks of built in cupboards.
Externally the gardens have been sub-divided into a section of formal lawn with paved seating area, a gravel terrace with ornamental pond and mixed perennial border, a secluded seating area with access to a summer house (with power & lighting) and a separate established vegetable patch with greenhouse. There is gated access to the rear of t he property to allow safe removal of green waste and a generous timber workshop with power and lighting.
There are two allocated parking spaces to the front of the property and access onto School Lane is shared with neighbours.
From Banbury, (M40 J11) proceed north on the A423 Southam Road, passing signs for Mollington, Farnborough and Claydon. As you go over the brow of the hill with the 'Wharf' pub on the left, turn right signposted for Wormleighton and Upper Boddington. Proceed through Wormleighton and take the left turn to Priors Hardwick. Continue through Priors Hardwick and on arriving in Priors Marston, follow the road round to the left and turn left onto The Green. Just after the memorial turn right onto The Holloway and proceed for a short distance before turning right onto School Lane. Access to Westfield Barns can be found on the right.
