An exceptional detached residence affording absolute privacy. Set back from the road and approached via electric gates, this Grade II Listed property offers a wonderful balance between original character features and contemporary living in the highly desirable and sought after area of Charlton Kings.
Approached via a gravel driveway and through a pair of electric gates, Knappings Barn is a converted former barn that has been subject to an extensive contemporary extension and complete programme of modernisation. The original part of the house plays host to a beautifully appointed kitchen/dining room with a modern kitchen including a breakfast bar and beamed ceilings. The barn also houses two generous double bedrooms on the first floor together with a modern bathroom and plentiful storage including a mezzanine area to one of the bedrooms. The contemporary half of this wonderful home is tied together by a modern glazed link connecting the old and new, which also acts as an impressive entrance hall and provides access into a pretty courtyard. The accommodation in the contemporary half of the house includes a substantial and heavily glazed sitting room with a log burner and glazed bi-folding doors opening into the gardens, whilst the lower ground floor provides an excellent principal bedroom suite with contemporary shower room and generous dressing area including a wide range of storage. Outside and to the rear is a particularly private and manageable garden, predominantly laid to lawn with a decked area including pergola. The driveway is laid to gravel and provides secure off-road parking for a few vehicles.
Knappings Barn is within walking distance of the excellent independent school, St. Edwards, and the award-winning Balcarras Secondary School in the heart of the village. Excellent amenities may be found at Sixways, in the old village and the town centre. Lilley Brook Golf Club and Timbercombe Woods are but a stone’s throw away. The easy access to transport links, including the A40 linking Cheltenham to the Cotswolds, Oxford, and London, A435 to Cirencester, M5 motorway network, and Cheltenham’s mainline train station, all make this property perfectly located for excellent lifestyle living.
Mains water, electricity, gas and drainage are connected to the property.
