Main Street, Long Compton, SHIPSTON-ON-STOUR


Guide price

  • Bedrooms: 4
One of the brightest jewels in Long Compton's crown of country homes, and undoubtedly one of the village's best kept secrets, this detached, two storey, three/four bedroomed coach house to the adjacent property - Harrow Hill House - was redeveloped in 1994 and originally dates from the 17th Century.

Located within its own gated environment, and approached via its own discreet driveway from the Main Street, the property has a 120ft walled garden to the rear with a selection of different seating areas including a patio area adjacent to the property, all surrounding the heated swimming pool adding a whole new dimension to the living experience.

The ground floor of the property incorporates a homely, open-plan living kitchen-dining room, with the former being stylishly fitted with granite worktops and a range of integrated appliances. The stunning living room has a 20ft high apex ceiling, a Cotswold stone fireplace with wood-burning stove and an impressive, galleried landing which is part of the master suite on the first floor. There is a bedroom/study on the ground floor and shower room/WC which would be ideal as a guest suite.

At first floor level, there is an en suite bathroom to the master bedroom and two further double bedrooms at the rear, both having cottage-style low-level windows, taking full advantage of the superb views over the pool and garden. The front of the property overlooks St Peter and St Paul's church towards distant countryside.

Externally there is a gated courtyard with off-street parking for three vehicles, beyond which there is a double garage and a separate store and pump room. The property is warmed with oil-fired central heating from an external boiler and sealed unit double glazing.

The property is located opposite St Peter and St Paul's church, close to the centre of this popular Cotswold village, mid-way between the market towns of Chipping Norton, Shipston-on-Stour and Moreton-in-Marsh, where there are also rail links to London Paddington. The village has its own primary school, there is a renowned local eatery in the Red Lion public house, there is a village shop and a few other bespoke facilities. Walks can be enjoyed in the surrounding countryside in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.
