Fosse Barn is located in a semi rural spot on the outskirts of South Cerney and forms part of the land of the former Horse & Groom pub which was converted to create 5 very unique and individual homes offering versatile and spacious accommodation. With the appearance of an old Cotswold stone barn, this was actually built in 2000 and used as a motel for a number of years. This is a lovely home with the benefit of a self contained annexe with its own entrance (which could be combined to create one home) - ideal for anyone looking for cross-generational living or perhaps additional rental income. There are two separate paved garden areas, a detached garage and plenty of parking.

The main entrance to the house is at the rear of the property accessed by a gated paved footpath winding down from the gravelled driveway area. The annexe spans the lower ground floor and actually has two entrance points, one from the front and one at the rear with an internal staircase leading down.

As you enter the door to the main house, you are welcomed by a very cosy feel and get a sense of the quality of workmanship to be found throughout the house. Off to the left, you will find the beautiful country style shaker kitchen with wood flooring and plenty of soft close cabinets with a glorious light granite worktop. There is a fitted gas range cooker, integrated dishwasher and fridge/freezer and space for a dining table seating 4-6 people or perhaps a few more for a special occasion. Beyond the kitchen is a utility room leading onto a downstairs WC. Across the hall is the wonderful dual aspect sitting room which is a cosy space to relax and plenty of room for large family gatherings. There are large windows looking out onto the rear patio area and a door leading through to the annexe hallway.

Heading upstairs, there are two bedrooms and two bathrooms. The master bedroom is a lovely suite with stunning views across the neighbouring farmland and has a built in wardrobe and a stunning high quality recently refurbished ensuite shower room. Bedroom two is another great size room sharing the same view and also has a fitted wardrobe. On the landing, there is access to an excellent loft storage space and also the family bathroom complete with bath and separate shower.

The lower ground floor houses the self-contained annexe which is ideal for anyone looking to share a home with relatives with the advantage of having their own privacy. This could also be let on a long or short term basis to generate some nice additional income. Alternatively, it could simply be combined with the main house to create a larger home for those who need it. Down here there is a great sized bedroom with a full ensuite bathroom, a utility room/study and storage space. The living area is another cosy open plan space with the kitchen tucked away in the corner. The kitchen is fitted with a dishwasher, electric oven and hob and an integrated fridge/freezer. Across the lounge is the entrance lobby leading out to the front and also a separate WC.

Outside there are two low maintenance garden areas, one to the front for the annexe which is a tiered low maintenance patio area and one at the rear which has a lovely patio providing an afternoon sun trap. The detached garage is currently used as a fantastic workshop, storage or parking space with gated driveway parking in front. There is also ample parking in the communal driveway for guests and residents.

Fosse Barn is located about 1.5 miles from the centre of South Cerney, which has a host of fantastic local amenities including three pubs, an Indian restaurant, post office & deli, fish & chip shop, chemist, doctor surgery, vets, village hall, two churches, Ann Edwards primary school, pre-school playgroup, a One Stop and a Co-Op. That's in addition to being in the heart of the Cotswold Water Park with countless lakes for all varieties of water sports with water skiing and waterside dining at the Lakeside Brasserie. Just at the top of the road is a great playground for children and access to some fantastic walks around the village and surrounding areas.

Commuting connections to London are a breeze with direct trains to Paddington from Kemble (78 mins) 6 miles away or Swindon (58 mins) 12.5 miles away. The A419 gives access to the M4 Jct 15 (16 miles) with easy access to the M5 whilst Cirencester is only 4 miles and Cheltenham 20 miles away. As well as the local village school there are a number of secondary schools in and around Cirencester along with great private and grammar schools such as Rendcomb College
