Property Description

This stunning, contemporary barn conversion was designed by award winning Spratley Studios and completed by the current owners in 2010. It is a four bedroom Grade II listed thatched barn, with a mature south facing and private walled garden. The barn is believed to date from the early 1800's. The barn is within the conservation area of East Hendred which is one of Oxfordshire's most popular and picturesque villages, and a few miles from Didcot Parkway station. (40 mins. to Paddington) Outside, Orchard Barn's mature and well-maintained garden is enclosed by an old brick wall, which gives a high degree of privacy. There is a pond, two good quality painted sheds, a wood stack, and a pretty garden gate onto Chapel Square. Parking is free on the street at the front of the property. Finished to a very high specification throughout, there is limestone or oak flooring downstairs, with pure wool carpets upstairs. There is underfloor heating throughout the house. Large windows and folding doors make the barn very light, sunny and airy. Celebrating the character of the original barn, its oak beams, open spaces and height, the house now consists of a spacious entrance hall with glazed sliding door to a large and beautiful kitchen-dining room leading directly onto the garden. There is a separate utility room off the kitchen. Double doors open onto a large drawing room with an imposing double height ceiling and bi-fold doors to the terrace. A bespoke raised fireplace acts as both an open fire and wood-burner. Additionally, on the ground floor there is an en suite bedroom (currently used as a study/snug), which has direct access to the terrace. There is a spacious cloakroom off the entrance hall. A handcrafted oak and glass staircase leads to three double bedrooms including the main bedroom with en suite shower room and a family bathroom. All bedrooms overlook the garden.
Services: All mains services connected. Under floor heating.
