Guide price

  • Bedrooms: 4
Positioned on the edge of the Conservation Area of this popular North Cotswold village, on an approximately one third of an acre plot backing onto open countryside, this detached, two storey, four bedroomed country retreat is located at the end of its own private drive and should be viewed internally to be fully appreciated.

Built of honeyed Cotswold stone and substantially extended over recent years, the property now features a superb, handmade fitted kitchen to the rear with a cathedral-style 15ft high apex ceiling, all formed in part open plan with an orangery-style dining room with picture windows and a lantern roof. There is a spacious living room with a homely, wood burning stove and a guest double bedroom suite with en suite shower room on the ground floor, together with two double bedrooms, single bedroom and a spacious bathroom on the first floor.

The light and airy accommodation is complemented by stone and engineered oak wood floors with oil-fired, piped underfloor heating to both ground and first floor with individual, thermastatic controls to each room.

Externally, there is a double stone built carport with a work room to one side, ample turning space and hardstanding for several vehicles, and a patio to the rear of the property designed for al fresco dining. The land backs onto the Batsford Estate, so horses can be seen grazing in the nearby paddocks and there are beautiful country views to be enjoyed from both ground and first floors.

The School was converted into this desirable residence in around 2007, and now provides character with all the contemporary refinements of modern day living and the ultimate country retreat.

Aston Magna is positioned mid-way between the North Cotswold market towns of Moreton-in-Marsh, Chipping Campden and Shipston-on-Stour, with the former having its own railway station with links to Oxford and London Paddington. There are many walks to be enjoyed in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, and whilst the village has no direct amenities immediately available, within a three mile radius there is a wide range of beautiful villages, North Cotswold market towns, restaurants, hotels, boutique shops, and local facilities.
