Property Description

Full description

Tenure: Freehold

Positioned in one of the most peaceful and rural locations within Warwickshire. Parsons Barn is beautifully situated at the end of a long drive in a private position enjoying spectacular views across the Cotswold escarpment. Constructed of brick under a tiled roof, the barn sits within approximately 107 acres and is surrounded by unspoilt Cotswold countryside.

The barn is currently arranged as two separate yet interlinking dwellings. The first with planning permission for residential use compromises a kitchen/breakfast room, dining room, study and utility room on the ground floor with two bedroom suites on the first floor with an additional bedroom with mezzanine. The rooms are well proportioned with views onto the gardens and surrounding grounds.

The second part, known as "Vicarage Barn", is currently an immaculately presented holiday let. Entered via a full height, vaulted reception hall and galleried landing, kitchen, sitting room and two well-proportioned bedroom suites. The holiday let could also easily be made accessible from the main house via two currently closed doorways or made full residential, subject to planning permission. Alternatively the holidy let could be suitable for a live/work, commercial or even other light industrial uses, again subject to planning permission.

Parsons Barn is accessed down a long drive off the main street in the heart of Long Compton, a sought after South Warwickshire village. Within Long Compton is a village shop, an excellent public house, primary school and church, along with access to a network of footpaths and bridleways which link to the nearby villages of Whichford, Great Rollright and Little Compton.

Additional shopping facilities within the locality can be found in the market towns of Shipston-on-Stour, Moreton-in-Marsh and Chipping Norton having supermarkets and a variety of day-to-day amenities. Daylesford Organic Farm Shop is nearby.

Further leisure and more comprehensive shopping facilities can be found in the commercial centres of Cheltenham, Oxford and Stratford-upon-Avon.

Schooling in the area includes a village school at Long Compton with further state and grammar schooling at Stratford, Warwick and Chipping Campden. Private schools include Kitebrook and Dormer House in Moreton-in-Marsh, Cheltenham Ladies, Cheltenham College and Dean Close in Cheltenham all of which can be accessed via a school bus from Moreton-in-Marsh. There is also Tudor Hall and Bloxham near Banbury and the array of Oxford Schools, The Dragon, Summerfields, The High, Magdalen College and St Edwards to name but a few. A school bus runs from Cherington to Stratford-upon-Avon.

The area has excellent communications with easy access to London Marylebone by train from Banbury taking about 50 minutes and London Paddington from Moreton-in-Marsh taking about 90 minutes, or Birmingham from Banbury taking about 45 minutes. The M40 gives access to London and Birmingham and the M5 to the West Country.

Sporting and leisure facilities within the locality include hunting with the Warwickshire and Heythrop; golf at Tadmarton, Brailes, Broadway and Naunton; racing at Stratford and Cheltenham, along with the Royal Shakespeare Company theatre at Stratford and Soho Farmhouse only 11.5 miles away.

Extending to 5 acres, to the front of the main house is a stoned parking area, which leads to additional visitor spaces and views onto the pond and surrounding land to the east. To the west is an enclosed lawned area with a selection of fruit trees.
To the south are grassed lands, trees and natural hedge rows.

In addition to the gardens, there is approximately 100 acres of agricultural land surrounding the Barn. Of which 40 acres will be ‘in-hand’ from September this year, when the current FBT (Farm Business Tenancy) expires and a further 60 acres now under an AHA Tenancy (Agricultural Holdings Act) will be surrendered this year and transferred onto a short-term yearly FBT Tenancy.
