| Converted in 2006, Priory Barn is an exceptional Grade II listed barn conversion of the highest quality.
Constructed in 1779 by monks from Edington Priory, it was originally a threshing barn, it has been built from high grade Cotswold stone with cut quoin corners and detailing around openings and a Stonesfield slate roof.
The property is approached via a long private drive which sweeps around in to a large parking area which has considerable potential to expand.
Planning permission for a three bay garage with accommodation above has now lapsed but should not be difficult to re-instate.
The land lies principally to the south and west of the property and is composed of about 0.75 acre of landscaped garden and a one acre paddock ideal for the equestrian minded.
The property is located in the small West Oxfordshire village of Alvescot which has a very popular village pub and primary school.
Alvescot also benefits from a lovely village park and communal tennis court.
It is within half an hour of Oxford City and less than an hours commute to London.
Design, Layout and Accommodation
Approaching 4,500 sq feet, Priory Barn has been designed with modern family living and entertaining in mind. An abundance of light floods in through the huge glazed south and north elevations, illuminating the heart of the home which contains:
A very large open plan kitchen and breakfast room (7.5m x 6.5m). The kitchen itself features hand made “cats paw” solid oak units, a large island (2.3m x 1.5m) with seating, solid granite work surfaces, a large traditional double sink and a range cooker fitted beneath a huge oak bressumer. There is ample space for a breakfast table and further seating. In addition there is a large walk in pantry (3.3m x 1.8m) a utility room (3.4m x 2.8m) and a wc.
Magnificent vaulted family room (6.5m x 5m) with a Clearview log burning stove, exposed A frames and purlins.
Separate, heavily timbered dining area (5.9m x 3.2m).
Good size office
Downstairs shower room
Four character-filled bedrooms, two with beautiful en-suites
Magnificent vaulted drawing room (12m x 6m) with incredible timbering and an enormous inglenook fireplace with another Clearview stove. The drawing room is galleried and affords a lovely view over the family room below and garden to the front.
Solid oak joinery prevails throughout and the Barn benefits from under floor heating to all areas except the bedrooms which have traditional radiators.
Large bi-folding doors lead out from the family room on to the patio area with its southerly aspect.
