Bedrooms: 5
Situated at the end of a quiet country lane immersed in attractive countryside is this impressive contemporary barn conversion, which has been transformed from former farm buildings to generous family home in recent years. The property is set within its own grassland and low-maintenance gardens, further benefitting from extensive off-road parking, garaging/stabling and a one-bedroom attached annexe which has its own separate entrance and parking. The house is ideally designed either for multi-generational living, with the annexe suited to grandparents or older children, or as an income generator with potential to let the annexe as a holiday let or for long-term rent (subject to consents), given that it is totally separate from the main home.

Both properties are beautifully presented to a very high standard inside and out, with all the modern conveniences expected from a new-build or modern renovation, while being situated in a picturesque rural area. This includes large windows and sliding glazed doors which flood the interiors with natural light, modern bathrooms with high-quality sanitaryware and stunning contemporary kitchens featuring premium integrated appliances. There are also some characterful features, including a handmade oak staircase and solid wooden doors with complementary frames.

The accommodation extends to more than 1900 sq ft for the main residence and 1300 sq ft for the annexe. The main house is arranged over two floors and is accessed directly onto a reception hall/dining room, which is open plan to the bright and airy kitchen/sitting room, leading to a utility room, cloakroom and study. There is also a double bedroom with en suite shower room and an additional study. Stairs lead up from the reception hallway to the first-floor landing which has access to a further three bedrooms and a family bathroom.

The annexe is single storey and has a private entrance on the side opening to a very spacious open plan kitchen/sitting/dining room. Adjoining this is a double bedroom, en suite shower room and utility room, which has a separate entrance from the rear.


Well-situated within its grounds of about 11.28 acres, the property enjoys an idyllic rural setting amongst the rolling countryside of the Severn Vale with excellent access to footpaths and bridleways on the doorstep. A sweeping gravel driveway leads along the front of the property to a good-size parking area with space for several cars, where there is a detached stable block which could be used for garaging or storage. A pretty, well-stocked border provides a welcoming first impression to the front garden, which is laid to low-maintenance gravel and concrete to the front of the annexe, which has its own separate parking area and entrance, and a raised timber decking terrace to the front of the main house. This is partly shaded by a pergola which has space for outdoor dining. There is also a workshop/shed.

The grounds surrounding the property are mostly pastureland suitable for grazing, making the property ideal for equestrian use or as a smallholding.


The property is located in the hamlet of Upper Hill in the Severn Vale area, surrounded by open countryside. It is conveniently situated approximately five miles from the A38/M5 motorway at Falfield and about three miles from Berkeley, which has a good range of shops and facilities suitable for everyday needs. The former market towns of Thornbury and Dursley are approximately five and nine miles away respectively, offering a wider range of shops and facilities. There are primary schools nearby including Stone and Berkeley, while secondary schools include The Castle School and the well-regarded Katherine Lady Berkeley at Wotton-Under-Edge. Train services are available from Cam and Dursley station, servicing Gloucester and Bristol whilst rail links to London are available from Bristol Parkway. Junction 14 of the M5 is within a short drive offering excellent access to Gloucester and Cheltenham, the Midlands and the North as well as the south for Bristol/Wales, the West Country and the M4 interchange. The area is popular for a range of country pursuits and sporting activities on the Cotswold Hills amongst attractive scenery and landscapes.
