Built with traditional Cotswold materials, Lampits Farm is a spacious modern farmhouse with balanced and flexible accommodation on three floors. All ground floor rooms have underfloor heating, while the kitchen has stone floors, a four oven Aga, extensive storage cabinets and a large butler’s sink. The wide panoramic windows have far reaching views to the south and east.
Upstairs there are two main bedrooms with en suite bathrooms and a further double bedroom and family bathroom. The second floor comprises another bedroom with a large play room/ sitting room. Attached at one corner of the house is a single storey outbuilding that has planning consent to be linked to the main dwelling to create a conservatory or annexe.
The adjacent cottage/studio gives extra space for accommodation, a studio or large home office. The open section of the barn provides shelter for machinery and vehicles whilst the remainder is used as a studio and workshop. The agents say, as none of the buildings are listed and due to its secluded location, there may well be potential (subject to necessary consents) to extend the house further and adapt the property to the new owner’s needs.
Surrounding the house and buildings are informal gardens with a tennis court, vegetable garden and orchards. There are two paddocks bordering the drive. There is another paddock to the south east bordered by a ha-ha which provides a very attractive view towards Ablington Downs. The owners have planted approximately 4,000 trees creating their own arboretum, mainly comprising indigenous and deciduous trees interspersed with belts of Scots Pine.
Lampits Farm is located above the picturesque and popular Coln Valley around half a mile from Winson in Gloucestershire.
The surrounding countryside has been designated an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and provides excellent walking, cycling and riding. The market town of Cirencester (seven miles) provides first class shops and services as well as a leisure centre and hospital.
The smaller market town of Northleach also has a good selection of shops for every day needs. There is an award winning farm shop at Chedworth. More extensive shopping and can be found in Cheltenham, Oxford and Bath.
The guide price is £2.25m. For further information please contact Knight Frank on 01285 659 771 or visit www.knightfrank.co.uk.
