The original property is believed to date from mid 17th century and extended in Victorian times with the biggest transformation having taken place in the early part of the 21st century incorporating a stunning living kitchen extension to the western elevation with full height picture windows creating a light and airy atmosphere. There is piped underfloor heating to the whole of this room and the central hallway, predominately covered with solid oak flooring.
There are three conventional reception rooms all of a similar size in the older part of the building, one warmed with a homely wood burning stove and one giving access to a ground floor shower room/wc which can also be used as a garden closet or separate bedroom accommodation.
At first floor level there are four double bedrooms, two with panoramic views to the south over sweeping lawns, towards the centre of Blockley village. The master bedroom has not only an en suite shower room but also a walk in dressing room and two rooms have exposed beams and roof timbers.
The property has a gas fired central heating system with a pressurised water system, the wiring has been upgraded and many of the casement windows renewed with double glazing.
Externally this property has off street parking for around 6 vehicles with a newly installed car charging point and stands on a 0.6 acre plot, the majority of which is sweeping lawned gardens and is surprisingly well screened.
The Old Farm House is located on the outskirts of Blockley village around 1/4 mile from the village green, The Great Western Arms and the village shop and cafe which opens as a bistro several evenings a week.
Positioned midway between the Cotswold Cafe society of Chipping Campden and the more traditional market town of Moreton-in-Marsh, where there are rail links to Oxford and London Paddington. Positioned in an area of outstanding natural beauty there are many interesting and beautiful walks in the surrounding countryside, with Blockley being in a valley bisected by the former mill race Blockley brook.
