A charming Cotswold stone barn conversion finished to an exceptionally high standard in the hamlet of Willesley on the outskirts of Tetbury, near Westonbirt Arboretum.
The Old Stables is believed to have been part of neighbouring Beaufort House and was converted into a residential dwelling in 2009/2010. The property has been converted to a high standard combining a mix of character and charm with modern necessities. These include zoned controlled underfloor heating, double glazing and LED lighting throughout making it a highly efficient low-cost property to run.
The accommodation is arranged across a single storey. A part glazed timber stable door leads into the entrance hall. Adjacent to the hall is a W.C which boasts a selection of cupboards, one is a heated airing cupboard and another houses a water softener.
To the right of the hall is a spacious and inviting sitting room that enjoys a vaulted ceiling with two velux windows with the addition of french doors and a window, the room is filled with natural light. A Bath stone feature fireplace makes a real focal point within the room, and to the opposite end is a raised hatch that has a pull-down ladder to access a storage area where the central heating boiler is housed.
The impressive open plan kitchen/dining room also has a vaulted ceiling with exposed beams, a stone tiled floor throughout and further french doors to the garden. There are a range of wall and base cabinets finished with a solid wooden worktop and a Belfast sink, along with an integrated dishwasher, washing machine and double oven with an induction hob. Additional full height fitted cupboards run along one side of the kitchen providing useful storage.
Beyond the kitchen is an inner hall that provides access to the two bedrooms and a modern bathroom, which includes a shower over bath and natural stone tiling. The bedrooms are good-sized double rooms that benefit from bespoke fitted wardrobes/storage and both enjoy an outlook and access to the garden. A loft hatch is found in the principal bedroom, including a pull-down ladder that provides a great storage area that is fully boarded out and has lighting.
Externally there is a charming and very private well stocked garden. A shingle terrace connects the various doors from the house and offers various spots to catch the sun during the day. The remainder of the garden is predominately laid to lawn and bordered by flower and shrub beds. There is a shed to the far corner that benefits from a power supply, and a gate that leads out to the driveway. To the front the property is accessed via a gated shared gravel driveway where there is parking for two vehicles.
We are informed the property is connected to mains water and electricity, private drainage and the central heating fired by oil. Council tax band D (Wiltshire Council).
