A detached house that has now been significantly remodelled and upgraded to create a stunning modern family home, having a generous plot overlooking neighbouring fields and panoramic views towards Oxfordshire.
Smith Barry Circus enjoys the most rural and tranquil position within Upper Rissington, a small cluster of prestigious detached properties arranged serenely in the round with a gated approach, each home afforded a generous plot overlooking neighbouring fields and panoramic views towards Oxfordshire.
8 Smith Barry Circus has undergone a programme of refurbishment over the last twelve months, now significantly remodelled and upgraded to create a stunning modern family home. The accommodation, arranged over three floors, provides entirely open-plan ground floor living space with three large double bedrooms and a family bathroom on the first floor, plus a luxurious master bedroom suite above complete with dressing room and separate shower room.
“The previous couple had lived here since the original RAF base was sold off in the late 1990s. It was a home entirely suited to their lifestyle, sitting in a wonderful spot overlooking fields with a stocked mature garden and workshop /garage, still with its original arrangement of smallish separate ground floor rooms. We fell in love with the position and potential, seeing immediately how we might transform the whole ground floor to make the most of its fantastic aspect,” says the present owner.
“We began by knocking out the walls separating the kitchen, dining room, sitting room and garden room, re-positioning the back door to a more practical position. We re-wired the whole property, replaced the picture windows and door to the front, stripped out an old shower on the ground floor, installing a fabulous new kitchen before re-decorating the whole house. Fortunately, the top floor had only been recently re-configured, and done so beautifully - at least we were spared that last bit!”
It has clearly been a labour of love, and the end result is spectacular. Why then, so soon after finishing their endeavour, are they moving?
“Unfortunately, life sometimes throws a curve ball. My wife’s family is in the South of England and we are needed back there. It’s such a great shame. We have absolutely delighted in living here. Even in this short time we have made such good friends of the neighbours, who are so kind, welcoming and friendly. We shall certainly miss the Cotswold lifestyle, this little quiet corner of paradise.”
Notwithstanding the amount of work that has already been done, the property still offers significant potential, being situated within a broad plot that particularly lends itself to extension. As such, early viewing is unhesitatingly recommended.
