Located within easy walking distance to the much sought after town of Minchinhampton stands this beautiful, architect designed, eco-friendly, green oak framed barn style residence offering plenty of flexible living accommodation, and capturing the essence of the surrounding landscape with its curved design by drawing the outdoors inside.

On entering there is a spacious entrance lobby with storage, and leading on there is a cloakroom and plenty of further storage including a boot room and cold store larder.

The open plan kitchen/living area has been designed to a high specification offering a vaulted oak beamed ceiling, a bespoke professional style well thought out fitted kitchen with a central island with breakfast bar and granite work tops, a four oven gas Aga and the floor is tiled and benefits from underfloor heating. There is also plenty of room for a formal dining room table. The sitting area has oak flooring and has a feature central wood burner and there are stairs leading up to an open plan study.

The whole of the open plan living area enjoys spectacular views out to the open countryside and there is plenty of natural light coming in from skylights and there are two sets of sliding oak doors leading out to the elevated patio area.

On the upper floor there are two bedrooms, the master being of a generous size with plenty of built-in wardrobes and once again enjoying spectacular views out to the open countryside. There is also a beautifully fitted en-suite bathroom with a freestanding bath, wet room style shower and double sink units.

To the lower ground floor there are a further three double bedrooms all benefiting from views out and have direct access to the outside and one enjoying its own en-suite shower room (this area could easily be adjusted to provide its own separate living accommodation if needed).
