Property description

Elevated Cotswold family home with far reaching views.

Description

Set in a stunning elevated location with far reaching views, Whites Barn comprises an attractive rural property which is thought to date back to 1827. The main house has evolved into the spacious and comfortable home that is enjoyed today complimented by an eye-catching castellated detached outbuilding.

The private location offers the owner tranquility yet convenient access to Cheltenham and Prestbury.

Whites Barn is an attractive rural property constructed of local Cotswold stone set under pitched tiled roofs with a mixture of slate and stone tiling with dormer and velux-style windows. The garden room is situated to the north westerly end of the building and comprises a single storey underneath a pyramidal roof.

Ground floor accommodation is accessed via a projecting Cotswold stone porch leading to the entrance hall with staircase and cloakroom opposite. The large kitchen and breakfast room centres the property and features exposed oak flooring and a bespoke kitchen area with Aga cooker and floor and wall mounted cupboards. The open layout give access to the attractive sitting room which has views to the garden and access via large double French doors. To the other side of the room is access to the large boot room. Beyond the kitchen is useful pantry, laundry and office. To the west of the entrance hall are steps leading up to the drawing room which features a stone fireplace with woodburning stove and oak beam over, a built in recess cupboard and views to the front of the property.

Projecting beyond is the delightful garden room enjoying a triple aspect over the gardens and grounds with double French doors leading out to side terrace and main lawn area. Worthy of note are the dramatic sunsets that this room enjoys.

The first floor is accessed via a timber staircase with full turn leading to a landing area. The main bedroom benefits from an en suite bathroom and lovely views across the gardens. There are four further double bedrooms, three with en suite shower rooms, a family bathroom and a sewing room.

The property features an eye-catching outbuilding called "The Castle" located away from the main house in a private location providing secure storage at ground floor level and attractive first floor open plan room with oak flooring, kitchenette area and shower room.

Outside
Whites Barn is accessed via private driveway with double timber electric gates and brick pillars leading to a private parking and tuning area. A carport with pitched tiled roof situated to the side of the house provides vehicle cover and storage. To the front of the house are well stocked beds and low height hedging. To the north west is a large level lawned area enjoying a combination of the stunning far reaching views and vistas back up towards the woodland.

The herbaceous borders are well stocked and offer seasonal colour and structure throughout the year. They incorporate a considerable selection of climbing and shrub roses and an abundance of spring flowering bulbs. Open grassland carries up beyond the house and round to the back. Within the gardens there is a mature kitchen garden with greenhouse and garden shed.

The unique feature of Whites Barn is the beautiful woodland and banked land surrounding the garden areas which creates a wonderful environment for horticulture, grazing and indeed play. Species include Roe and Muntjac deer. The land gives access to the Cotswold Way and onto Cleeve Common which provides a wealth of land perfect for dog walking and riding without the need to go on a road.
