Barton is a small village, made of beautiful houses on the Windrush River and appears in written records as Barton as early as 1287.
The adjacent, Guiting Power would be more widely known and is a typical Cotswolds village made up of russet-coloured houses clustered round a sloping green.
This delightful village is a fascinating example of the unconscious harmony created by Cotswold masons over the centuries. The cottages, shops and inns are all beautifully cared for. The Farmers Arms in the village and the Hollow Bottom Inn on the road leading to Winchcombe form welcome breaks on a number of glorious walks that can be taken in this area – north-westwards to Guiting Woods, south-eastwards down the Windrush Valley to Naunton, or south-westwards to Hawling.
Near Guiting Power is the Cotswolds Farm Park with many interesting breeds of animal and is a favourite destination of families.
Places to visit close-bye include Winchcombe and Sudely Castle, the popular village of Broadway, the old market town of Stow-on-the -Wold and its many antique shops, the village ofBourton-on-Water and the many surrounding idyllic Cotswold villages and inns.
There is a wide choice of excellent schools, both state and private within the area and the road communications are fantastic to the A40 which in turn provides access to London, and the M5 to the west.
The BarnAbout this home
As settings go, it doesn’t get much better than this – located in an elevated position, in the heart of the Cotswolds and overlooking the most picturesque countryside is this wonderful family home. Believed to date back to the 17 C, The Barn has a warm and inviting feel, with generously proportioned rooms – ideally suited for a family and modern-day living. This much-loved property has been in the same ownership for the past 50 years and gives a buyer an exciting opportunity to put their own stamp on this special property.
Large, light reception rooms with their double doors are flooded with natural light and in turn, open onto a terrace which makes for the most fantastic setting to enjoy outside dining and entertaining. The five bedroom, three bath/shower room (of which two are en-suite) makes for comfortable family living and much like the ground floor, the bedrooms are all very light. The main bedroom being particularly impressive, having a great deal of built-in storage and en-suite shower room.
The south facing garden laid to lawn framed by a variety of established flower beds, all of which are full of colour in the summer months. Steps lead down to what has got to be one of the main highlights of this property; a beautiful paddock which not only has a variety of trees and shrubs but has the River Windrush meandering through. A gravel driveway offers ample parking and there is a stone double garage which provides further parking/storage with greenhouse to the side.
In all, The Barn is incredibly special, and one would do well to find a a house in a more enviable setting.
