An attractive family home in the North Cotswold AONB which offers lovely gardens and unbeatable countryside views

With seven acres, stabling and outbuildings, plus comfortable interiors, Greenhill Farm in the village of Sutton-under-Brailes is a fabulous home with plenty of space to enjoy.

Slightly more than eight miles north of Moreton-in-Marsh, Nick Rudge of Savills in Banbury offers ‘elegant edge of village living with striking views’ for £2.5m at Grade II-listed Greenhill Farm, in the unspoilt south Warwickshire village of Sutton-under-Brailes, at the northern tip of the Cotswolds AONB.

Built of local stone under a pitched Welsh grey slate roof, the house dates from the 18th century with 20th-century additions and has many period features, including open fireplaces, exposed timbers, deep window boards, panelled doors, flagstone floors, window seats and leaded lights.

Modernised in recent years, it stands in seven acres of enclosed gardens and paddocks, with frontage to the Sutton Brook.

The main house provides 4,650sq ft of living space, including two main reception rooms, a garden room, a kitchen/breakfast room, five to six bedrooms and four bath/shower rooms.

It comes with garaging, off-road parking and a range of timber outbuildings comprising two loose boxes, hay and garden stores.

Greenhill Farm is currently on the market via Savills for £2.5 million — see more pictures or enquire with the agent for further details.
