Converted in the 1980s from a range of agricultural buildings formerly part of Manor Farm, Mill Barn in Cotswold Meadows was originally a cart house, transformed to create an individual, detached four-bedroom house with private walled garden and separate guest apartment. Cleverly designed, the main house is arranged over two floors, with the living areas on the first floor, to take advantage of the existing high vaulted ceilings and beams, and views across to the church. An impressive sitting room is large and comfortable with a wood burner and windows to the front and back. Adjacent is a spacious and light kitchen-dining room with solid oak floor and wall and floor units with granite worktop and Corian sink and surround. Integrated appliances include Samsung double oven with microwave, halogen hob with extractor fan over, dishwasher, and space for an under-cabinet fridge. Above is access to a part-boarded loft with pull down ladder. Also on the first floor, off the wide, light first-floor landing is a study, or possible fifth bedroom. On the ground floor, a generous and welcoming tiled hallway is accessed via an oak front door with glazed side panel. Off it is a large cloakroom, and well-appointed utility room with access to the garden and space for a washing machine, dishwasher and fridge-freezer. Also on this level are the four bedrooms - the master bedroom with built-in wardrobe and en-suite shower room, two further double bedrooms and a single bedroom - and a separate, well-appointed family bathroom.

To the rear, the house is set within a completely enclosed garden. It is mainly laid to lawn with a patio area for al-fresco dining. Steps lead up to a detached double garage and private parking area for several cars. There is also a single parking space at the front of the house, with gated access to the front door. Above the garage, is a standalone guest apartment with a walk-in shower room on the ground floor and stairs up to a large double bedroom with vaulted ceiling, currently used as a home cinema.
