This Grade II listed Horton stone barn conversion is situated within the heart of the delightful village of Priors Marston. Converted to a residential property in the late 1980's, Tindal's Barn is one of several similar properties set around an attractive courtyard within this popular village.
Approached over a shared gravel driveway, the entrance to the property has been cleverly sub-divided using a partition wall that doubles as shelving for books; creating a space for removing coats and shoes as well as access to a cloakroom before proceeding into the vaulted reception hall via double doors.
Stairs to the far right of this space ascend to the first floor and on to a mezzanine landing that leads to the master bedroom.
To the right of the reception hall are steps into the kitchen/breakfast room which is fitted with a bespoke Fraser James kitchen and tumbled travertine flooring. Maple wall and base units provide ample storage solutions and contrast with rich granite work surfaces. Built in appliances include a Neff fan oven, halogen hob with extractor hood over, a Bosch dishwasher and low level fridge and freezer. A door from the kitchen leads into one of two garages which works well as a utility space and also houses the boiler and oil tank. Note - the current owners have made a pre-application enquiry to the local authority to extend the kitchen in to this garage. Details of which are available.
To the left of the reception hall is a generous sitting room with exposed ceiling beam, a contemporary wood burning stove on a stone hearth, windows either side of the chimney breast and French doors that lead to the garden.
The mezzanine landing overlooking the reception hall provides access to the master bedroom which is generous in proportion, retains flashes of original timbers and has two banks of built in wardrobes. The en suite shower room has been improved and is finished with an attractive Duravit white suite, Matki walk in shower with curved glass screen and tiled surround.
The guest bedroom located at the far end of the landing is a light and bright room thanks to a skylight and interesting mid height window overlooking the courtyard. There is a built in cupboard that guests can use but whilst not entertaining, this room doubles as a quiet study from which to work. In addition to this there are two si ngle bedrooms overlooking the courtyard and a family bathroom fitted with a contemporary white suite and contrasting ceramic tiling.
Externally the rear gardens are largely private thanks to brick built retaining walls and high level fencing. Arranged over two levels, the lower section comprises a gravelled seating area, paved patio and a section of lawn. A two tier brick built raised flower bed is planted with a variety of herbs and plants to create a feature. Steps lead to a second section of lawn which is flanked on two sides by a yew hedge. In the far corner there is a shaped seating area under a timber pergola which looks back toward the wisteria clad barn.
To the front of the property there is parking for two - three cars as well as access to the garages; both of which have power and lighting. Upkeep of the communal courtyard is shared between the residents.
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 signed 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. The first drive on your right leads under an arch and into the courtyard where the property can be found in the far right hand corner.
