5 Bedroom House For Sale in Idlicote

4 5 3

A stunning detached barn conversion with gardens and paddock approaching 1.2 acres, the property enjoys spectacular panoramic views across the neighbouring countryside.

The Old Granary is a fabulous and imposing detached family home situated in an idyllic position within a plot approaching one and a half acres, enjoying outstanding panoramic views overlooking the Avon Valley towards Ilmington Downs and the North Cotswold countryside.

Approached by a pillared entrance and driveway, this original farm building, constructed of mellow brick under a pitched slate-tiled roof, was converted in 1998 by the renowned building firm Calarel of Chipping Campden to the highest possible standard.

Quality materials and skilled craftsmanship have been employed throughout, designed to enhance and reflect the innate character and form of the building.  

Exposed timbers and brickwork are balanced by the use of smooth plaster and new oak to create soaring light open spaces, with solid oak and flagstone floors throughout the ground floor and an exposed A frame above. 

An elegant galleried staircase is set within a vaulted central hallway, leading up to five bedrooms (two en-suite) and a family bathroom. 

At the heart of the house is a large, beautiful and brightly lit traditional country kitchen-breakfast room fitted with a generous array of bespoke units, a central island topped by black granite. A separate utility / boot room lies beyond.

Warmed throughout by oil fired central heating to cast iron radiators, additional comfort is provided by a five-oven Aga and an inglenook fireplace in the main sitting room, both prerequisites for a luxurious Cotswold country lifestyle. 

Three generous reception rooms and a separate study enjoy the best of a naturally elevated position, doors opening out towards gorgeous countryside views.  Raised split level decking captures the best of the day's sun, perfect for dining al fresco in the summer. 

Outside, a detached double garage is supplemented by generous parking, offering potential (subject to the usual planning permissions) for conversion to further ancillary guest / holiday let accommodation.

Glorious and maturely landscaped gardens are laid mainly to lawn, thence to an orchard and a paddock with field shelters and natural ponds bounded by post and rail fencing, the whole affording considerable natural privacy.

Ideal for equestrian usage, there is also a livery opposite the Granary, and a right of way from the paddock to the road that leads on to fabulous local bridle paths in the open countryside. 

The rural and unspoilt hamlet of Idlicote lies just two miles from Shipston on Stour, which was voted the number 1 place to live in the UK 2018 by The Times newspaper. Shipston is a lively town chock-full of independent and specialist shops including a bakery, butchers and local farm shop, with many pubs, restaurants and community-led services and amenities including the museum and heritage centre. 

The town is also an excellent centre for walking and cycling and has become renowned for its festivals including the Shipston Proms, a two week music festival culminating in a spectacular ‘Last Night of the Proms’ held in the High Street.

Idlicote is in the catchment area for both the primary and high schools at Shipston on Stour, providing main stream education to the age of 16. There are also other state and private schools within easy reach, including an Outstanding secondary state school at Chipping Campden and grammar schools in Stratford upon Avon. 

The nearby town of Moreton in Marsh, easily accessed via the A429 within a few minutes, offers a mainline train service between Worcester and London Paddington via Oxford. Stratford Upon Avon is only a fifteen minute drive away in a north westerly direction with a host of attractions, including the famous RSC theatre, as well as high street shops and a Waitrose, whilst Banbury (about 14 miles) and Warwick Park Way (about 16 miles) also have a direct train line with a frequent service taking an hour or less into London Marylebone. Junction 15 of the M40 provides access to Gaydon and the south and is located just 15 miles away.
