A charming and spacious 18th Century Farmhouse in a wonderful elevated rural position.

New Barn Farm is a charming and spacious family house in a wonderful rural location outside the village of Sibford Gower. Approached by a long private drive, the house occupies an elevated position with wonderful far reaching views. The original farmhouse which includes castellated detailing has been extended by the incorporation of a traditional stone barn dating from 1780 which now forms the Great Hall. The accommodation is laid out in such a way as to give flexible living with the playroom and the two en-suite bedrooms on the ground floor providing an ideal selfcontained annexe, leaving four bedrooms, a dressing room and two bathrooms on the first floor. The main living space of the house centres on the open plan kitchen/breakfast/dining room which has an oil fired ‘Aga’ at its heart. This room opens out onto the south facing terrace with the part walled garden beyond and also gives access to the family room. The accommodation is completed by the gracious drawing room which opens onto the Great Hall.

This property has 11 acres of land.
