These coverted barns are located on the former Warwickshire estate of Sir Thomas Cromwell
A new Warwickshire development offers historic properties with a modern twist at Oversley Castle. All barn conversions with far-reaching countryside views, these houses mix the best of old and new to suit a modern buyer who wants to be within reach of Oxford ad London, but wants to live in the pretty English countryside.
The barns – three of which are Grade II listed – are located 350ft above the village of Wixford, and each has been named to reflect its heritage. Redesigned to incorporate original features, the interiors blend old and new in a tasteful manner – all these houses come furnished to an extremely high standard.
The former stables have been transformed into a stunning four-bedroom dwelling called The Fold Yard, which offers impressive vaulted living spaces and vast picture windows looking out over the countryside. The other barns ready for occupation are The Coach House, The Byre, The Forge, East Side and West Side.
The most historic property at Oversley Castle is The Tudor Barn – a detached, timber-framed former threshing barn, with features dating back to the 15th century. Its accommodation is also very flexible: the self-contained annexe is suitable for a range of uses and can be finished to a buyer’s specification.
Slightly smaller than the Tudor Barn, The Coach House offers three bedrooms and a balcony, plus a garage, while The Byre and The Forge are semi-detached properties offering one-to-two bedrooms. East Side (below) and West Side are also attached, and comprise beautifully designed one-bedroom homes.
The site of Oversley Castle is located within the 65-acre former estate of Sir Thomas Cromwell. These grounds have been professionally landscaped and the gardens boast stunning panoramic views across Oxfordshire, Gloucester, Hereford and Worcester.
The open weekend to showcase these contemporary rural homes is on the 4th and 5th of June from 10am to 4pm.
Prices start from £300,000. For further information visit www.oversleycastle.com.
