Court Farmhouse is a BEAUTIFUL Cotswold stone country house designed by renowned architect Quinlan Terry and enjoying a TRULY MAGNIFICENT SETTING overlooking the rolling countryside of the Coln valley to the outskirts of this most quintessential of Cotswold villages.

Completed in 1986 and described in the Bibury Conservation Area statement as 'a competent essay in CLASSICAL COUNTRY HOUSE DESIGN' the substantial detached residence is also noted for being 'confidently imposing' in its stature and position on the south-eastern edge of the village.

With c. 11,300 sq. ft. of flexible living space, the accommodation is EXCEPTIONALLY SPACIOUS yet manageable and offers a number of EXCELLENT RECEPTION ROOMS as well as generously proportioned bedrooms making it ideal for both formal entertaining and day to day family life.

Of particular note is the strong, ornate central bay, from which a wide flagstone-floored entrance hall looks straight through the house to the GLORIOUS COLN VALLEY stretching away to the south. From this viewpoint, it is obvious to see why the house was built on this EXCEPTIONAL SITE.

Leading off the main reception hall is a DELIGHTFUL SOUTH FACING DRAWING ROOM which links through to a wonderful wood PANELLED LIBRARY and wraps around to a classically styled hallway featuring an IMPRESSIVE WINDING STAIRCASE to the upper floors.

From the first floor landing there is access to 2 of the properties 6 DOUBLE BEDROOMS, each with the benefit of ENSUITE FACILITIES and each with fitted storage or separate DRESSING ROOMS.

Of particular distinction is the FABULOUS MASTER BEDROOM SUITE, accessed off an elegant octagonal landing and offering wonderful southerly views together with a large ensuite bathroom as well as a sizeable dedicated dressing room.

In addition there is also a SECONDARY KITCHEN, a study, boot room, separate laundry room, gun room and two further cloakrooms as well as ancillary storage at the rear of the house. A second spiral staircase leads to the lower floor and access to the BILLIARD ROOM, WINE CELLAR and boiler room.

The STUNNING VIEWS from the house are complimented by the BEAUTIFULLY LANDSCAPED GARDENS AND GROUNDS and in particular by the flag stone terrace with box hedging that runs the length of the southern facade.

To the east of the main house is a lovely rose and herb garden along with a vegetable garden and a greenhouse, whilst on the western aspect there is a further terrace ideal for outdoor entertaining.

A paved walkway with pretty herbaceous borders leads to the sheltered swimming pool area with its HEATED OPEN AIR SWIMMING POOL and featuring a high Cotswold stone surround for privacy along with an eye-catching PAVILION changing room - also constructed in mellow Cotswold stone.

The property is approached off the quiet Bibury to Coln St Aldwyns lane with a long carriage driveway sweeping past the former Bibury Court Hotel - now a Grade I Listed private residence, and the historic Mill House before rising up to a gravelled parking area on the north side of the main house.
