Full description

Wheelwrights Barn is a Cotswold style, detached four bedroomed home with planning permission to extend, situated in a plot approaching half an acre and occupying a glorious elevated position in the sought-after village of Chedworth. Bordered by Cotswold dry stone walling to the front, approached via a five bar gate and a paved driveway with ample parking for several cars, the property enjoys far-reaching views towards distant hills. Nestled at the edge of the valley on a sheltered lane at the upper end of Chedworth's three-mile stretch, Wheelwrights barn is conveniently yet tranquilly located within walking distance of the primary school, tennis courts, village hall, parish church, farm shop and traditional 'Seven Tuns' public house.

Since the current vendors took over the property six years ago, they have overseen a major transformation of the interior and grounds.

A broad welcoming hallway opens out to a luxuriously equipped 'L' shaped kitchen / breakfast room that now forms the natural centerpiece of the home, flooded with natural light and fitted with a generous range of fitted cupboards, larder and integrated appliances. The working side of the kitchen leads through to a study, utility / boot room and w.c, whilst to the opposite end a large informal dining area can host twelve people comfortably. From here, a cosy sitting room is equipped with a wood-burning stove, leading through to a conservatory and west-facing patio ideally situated to take full advantage of the summer sun.

Such a sociable arrangement of the ground floor space ensures this property is eminently suited to family life. Upstairs there are four bedrooms - a master bedroom and newly fitted family bathroom, two further doubles and a guest suite. The whole overlooks beautifully landscaped grounds with formal raised terraces, heavily stocked borders, mature trees, spreading lawns and prerequisite vegetable garden. There is even a short stretch of footpath to the far boundary, (strategically hidden by a stretch of tall, manicured hedging and latch gate, running between Cheap Street and School Lane), perfect for young children to make their way safely to the nearby primary school.

Despite the work that has been carried out there is considerable potential for which planning permission has fortuitously already been gained. (Details are available online via Cirencester District Council's planning register.) The proposition includes a new garage and a glamorous garden room with an open fireplace and pitched tiled roof, designed to replace the existing conservatory; the attic could permit an impressive master bedroom suite with dressing room and bathroom. A floor could be added above the garden room, thereby providing the master bedroom with its own en-suite bathroom and dressing room.

Given the position of the property within the plot, too, there is clear potential to suggest that the grounds could be divided to provide another independent dwelling, making it of potential interest to a developer. As it is, the property already enjoys the considerable benefit of an attractive, traditional Cotswold stone built barn (currently serving as a garage and store) with full planning permission to convert into a stunning one or two-bedroom cottage with double height open-plan living accommodation (or perhaps a mezzanine). Naturally taking advantage of the same beautiful views and elevated position, this conversion could easily be provided with separate parking and private garden, thereby creating ample independent living ideal for elderly parents or a nanny, for example, or indeed as a source of income as a holiday let.
