An exceptional stone barn conversion providing over 2800 sq. ft. of thoughtfully planned accommodation.

Fettiplace Barn is situated in an elevated position on the edge of this delightful and unspoiled hamlet and enjoys far reaching views across the surrounding countryside to Swinbrook.

Fettiplace Barn is approached over a gravel driveway providing excellent hard standing and has a delightful, well-stocked private landscaped garden. The accommodation has been carefully thought out and is arranged over three floors with the ground floor having a double aspect, part-vaulted 34 ft. dining hall/family room with stone flooring and exposed timber work. There are two further reception rooms and a very well fitted kitchen/breakfast room on the ground floor, together with a utility room, guest bedroom with adjacent wet room. The ground floor also features underfloor heating throughout. The first floor has three very good sized double bedrooms, all of which are ensuite and the two larger bedrooms have mezzanine floors which provide further unique features, one currently used as a music area and the other as a dressing room.

The kitchens and bathrooms have also been finished in a style to compliment the character of the building, with a stylishly fitted kitchen with granite work surfaces and integrated appliances, including a dishwasher and Smeg double oven, and bathrooms which incorporate a traditional style with roll-top baths, traditionally styled sinks, and yet have the creature comforts of separate showers.

The property is situated in the small hamlet of Widford which is an unspoilt group of cottages and farmhouses situated on the banks of the river Windrush in an area renowned as one of outstanding natural beauty. Within the hamlet there is a 12th century church which is believed to be built on the ruins of an old Roman villa.

The neighbouring village of Swinbrook is about one mile distant having a parish church, a cricket pitch, and the renowned Swan Public House. The lovely town of Burford is only two miles away and offers an excellent selection of shops, restaurants, hotels, and other facilities. It also has the well known Burford Garden Centre and an 18 hole golf course. Further amenities and facilities can be found in the attractive city of Oxford, which is approximately 20 miles away, with its theatres and shops, and also in the local towns of Cirencester and Stow on the Wold which includes the nearby Daylesford Organic Farm Shop. Communications from Widford are excellent, the A40 being about 2 miles in distance giving access to the M40 motorway network at Oxford. Regular train services run from Charlbury, about 8 miles, providing regular inter city services to London Paddington in approximately 85 minutes, and from Oxford Parkway to Marylebone in approximately 57 minutes.
