Old stone and brick barns offer up the opportunity to convert attractive but unused buildings in to wonderful homes. I would therefore like to show you a fantastic example which has just come to the market with our Village Agency department. I feel ‘The Barn’ in Upper Heyford successfully combines practicality with the charm of original character features. This is a balance not always easy to achieve, however if carried out sympathetically the conversion will result in a home with a relaxing and serene atmosphere along with a sense of drama and aesthetic beauty. I’ll show you some of the highlights here and include a link to the website in case you’d like to review the full details.
Having driven or walked down a country lane in the attractive village of Upper Heyford this is the approach and the front aspect of the property. This frontage is securely enclosed behind electric double gates with a large gravelled driveway and access to an open fronted stone barn (with further potential, subject to permissions etc).
Living Room and Library
A professionally designed garden with much to interest the eye. There are a number of designated areas displaying fruits, vegetables, trees and shrubs all linked by reclaimed brick and gravelled pathways. Further features include two seating areas, a canopied terrace, raised pond, brick built pizza oven and a chicken coop…truly bringing eclectic to the outside space!
Paddock and views
‘The Barn’ also comes with a paddock of approximately half an acre with far reaching countryside views beyond.
I hope you’ll agree it’s quite a property.
Once again, thanks for viewing our blog.
