THE PROPERTY

Dating from the 17th Century with 19th Century renovations and replacements, Saintbury Cross Farm is an archetypal Cotswold farmhouse constructed of local limestone with a stone slate roof. It features mullioned windows with drip moulds and has a variety of period features. It is beautifully presented with extensive limestone flooring throughout the ground floor and well-appointed kitchen and bathroom fittings. A traditional oak front door leads into the 'L shaped' entrance hall with a walk-in storage cupboard. The drawing room has exposed beams and an open fireplace with a moulded stone surround and the south facing window has a window seat. The sitting room is similarly appointed, again with exposed beams and an inglenook fireplace with a cast iron wood burning stove. The dining room also has some fine timbers and a large inglenook fireplace with wood burner and a door to a walk-in storage cupboard. The farmhouse kitchen/breakfast room is well fitted with a range of purpose made painted oak fronted base and wall cupboards with polished granite work surfaces and a matching island with an inset twin bowl porcelain sink and integrated dishwasher. There is a Rangemaster cooker with twin ovens and a cooker hood above. There is a wall mounted microwave cooker and space for a wine chiller. The dining area has full length picture and French windows to the paved garden terrace. The utility room has plumbing for a washing machine, a door to the outside and a further door to the downstairs cloakroom with WC and limestone wash bowl. From the hall a 'dogleg' staircase with exposed timber studding leads to the first floor. The master bedroom features a dressing area, exposed timber roof trusses and a well fitted en-suite shower room with a tiled floor and glazed shower cubicle. There are three further double bedrooms, each with a fine chamber fireplace, and a family bathroom with a white suite and glazed shower. From the landing a door leads to a staircase leading to the attic providing scope for further accommodation if required. In front of the house, on the road side, there is a pond with two fountains and bull rushes. To the rear of the house, remote controlled gates lead into the block paved drive with a green oak building providing recently installed home office/studio, car port, tack room and two stables. Around the rear of the property there are extensive stone terraces with different eating areas and a heated swimming pool with electrically operated cover. The land is well enclosed with post and rail fencing and laid out with an all-weather manege and two separate paddocks. The whole area extends to approximately 2.5 acres. Saintbury is a picturesque and unspoilt small Cotswold hamlet with breath-taking views across the Vale of Worcestershire to the Malvern Hills and beyond. It lies within the Cotswold Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and Saintbury Conservation Area. The village has a fine church, thought to date back to Saxon times with a Broach spire erected around the 14th Century. Chipping Campden and Broadway provide most daily requirements whilst Cheltenham and Stratford-upon-Avon are the main cultural and shopping centres. Transport links are excellent with a regular commuter service from Moreton-in-Marsh to London Paddington taking about 90 minutes and the M5 (Jct 9) is approximately 15 miles away.
