A most attractive and well appointed, period Hornton stone built barn conversion in a delightful courtyard setting on the edge of the village conservation area, with large gardens extending in all to almost .40 acre
OXHILL is a quietly set village in the rolling South Warwickshire countryside close to the North Oxfordshire border. With the benefit of no through traffic it has an attractive mix of old and new properties together with a renowned inn – The Peacock, historic church and village hall. Less than two miles away is the large village of Tysoe which enjoys local shops, pre-school, primary school and after school clubs. Also readily accessible is Kineton (3½ miles) and Shipston on Stour (6 miles) while the main centres of the area are also within easy reach with Stratford upon Avon 10 miles, Banbury 11 miles, Warwick 16 miles and the nearest junction on the M40 (6 miles). There is a mainline rail service to London from Banbury and Warwick Parkway.
LITTLE BARN is delightfully situated on the southern periphery of the village, with charming views to the rear, and forms part of a small collection of character homes which were imaginatively and sympathetically converted in about 1996 from former late 18th/early 19th century period farm buildings adjoining Church House. The property comprises an attractive “L” shaped Hornton Stone and brick built semi-detached barn conversion set in good sized gardens which extend in all to about .40 acre, and providing flexible, well appointed, oil fired centrally heated and double glazed accommodation of considerable charm and character. A particular feature of the property is the natural pond located in the rear garden which attracts a wide variety of wildlife and adds to the delightful setting of Little Barn.

Leading from an Inner Hallway, with staircase to the first floor, is the Charming “L” Shaped Sitting Room which enjoys picture windows and a glazed door to the rear garden, a feature inglenook fireplace recess with a Woodward log burning stove, under-stairs storage cupboard and an exposed ceiling beam.

Beyond is a ground floor Bedroom Suite providing a Double Bedroom with semi-vaulted ceiling, and an En-Suite Shower Room containing a tiled corner shower cubicle, washbasin and WC.
On the first floor Leading from a Central Landing, with a built-in heated airing cupboard and ceiling hatch to the loft space, are Two Further Double Bedrooms, each with built-in double door wardrobes. There is also a Further Shower Room containing a shower, washbasin and WC.
