Bears Court is a stunning collection of luxury barn conversion homes split between two barns (North & South Barn) and offering both 3-bed and 4-bed options.

The developers are offering an opportunity to be involved in the final specifications and design!

All Homes are set across two floors and designed for modern living in a beautiful countryside setting with a choice of room layouts combined with high quality specification and a distinctive contemporary design.

Living Options

Positioned within a stunning countryside setting in the Cotswolds, the two barns at Bears Court have been converted to a collection of contemporary homes with consideration to modern day needs, sustainable living and environmental impact.

At North Barn there are four homes to choose from, all 3-bedroom, ranging from 1442 sqft to 1619 sqft. The homes within North Barn will benefit from large bifold doors to the main living area and bedroom to maximise natural daylight and ventilation and there will also be roof lights in the first-floor bedrooms. The exterior finish for the barns will predominantly be cedar boarding in a vertical arrangement combined with contemporary mid-grey finish to windows, roof and rainwater goods. All properties here will also benefit from their own private outdoor space.

The four homes at South Barn range from 1731 sq ft to 1839 sq ft and offer a choice of either 3-bedroom or 4-bedroom homes (the majority with ensuite) set across two floors. The ground floor also features a large open-plan living space with kitchen and lounge area plus a useful separate utility. There will be a series of roof lights allowing natural daylight into the first-floor landing areas and also down into the kitchen/dining area below. On one end of the property there is a full height glass to maximise light and ventilation with an unusual sliding door to cover this constructed from vertical timber boarding to match the rest of the exterior finish. At the opposite end, where you’ll find a private outdoor garden space there is another unusual feature with a large external shutter on the face of the building, constructed as a series of individual slats, that can be raised to deliver more light to the first floor living space.

Local Area-

The Rissingtons

A group of villages just outside Bourton-on-the-Water – once three but now four with the new village of Upper Rissington emerging from the former Little Rissington RAF base along the hilltop between the Windrush and the Evenlode Valleys. Great and Little Rissington are picturesque Cotswold villages with some fine cottages and farmhouses while Wyck Rissington on the Oxfordshire Way enjoys a large open central green and a church where the composer Gustav Holst was organist a century ago.

Little Rissington

A quiet village, with some beautiful Cotswold stone cottages, the most notable thing about Little Rissington is probably the beautiful 12th century church of St Peter’s which has a longstanding connection to the RAF. Part of the graveyard has an area and memorial dedicated to WWII servicemen and there is also a stained-glass window inside the church which shows aeronautic symbols. The church is now set apart from the main village but still enjoys some lovely views towards Bourton.

Outdoor Life

Located in the heart of the Cotswolds this is very much a place to enjoy the outdoor life. It is lovely walking country and there are numerous routes in the area if you want to explore on foot some of the stunning countryside, where green rolling hills mix with secluded river valleys and meadows plus you’ll also find plenty of opportunities to go cycling or horse riding to make the most of the country air. There are some interesting attractions to visit in Bourton, though you may prefer to go out of season to avoid the crowds, as well as a host of places to visit a bit further afield from Abbeys and Churches to Castles and Gardens – there is always something to do in the Cotswolds.

Shops, Pubs & Entertainment

Although there is no local pub in Little Rissington there are many options for pubs, restaurants and tea/coffee shops nearby in Bourton and Stow not forgetting the popular Lamb Inn at picturesque Great Rissington. For local shopping there’s a Co-op food store just 5 miles away at the Upper Rissington Business Park, as well as many other useful small businesses, but other shops can be found at Bourton and there’s a large Tesco Superstore at Stow-on-the-Wold.

Education Options

There are a number of local primary schools, including Bourton-on-the-Water Primary and the Rissington School while others rated ‘outstanding’ at Cold Aston, Bledlington and Kingham. The most popular school for local secondary age children is The Cotswold School in Bourton, judged outstanding in the last four consecutive Ofsted inspections, but there are other options not too far away at Burford and Chipping Norton plus of course many excellent schools to suit all tastes in Cheltenham.

Easy Transport Links

Access from Bears Court is excellent, with the A429 (2.4 miles) and the A40 (6.3 miles) within easy reach as well as the many Cotswold market towns such as Stow-on-the-Wold, Moreton-in-Marsh, Broadway and Chipping Norton – to name but a few – while the nearest motorways are just over a 20 miles drive, west for the M5 or east for the M40. The nearest mainline train station is at Kingham (6 miles) with a regular service to London Paddington in around 1 hour 20 minutes while there is also a comprehensive local bus service radiating from Bourton for more local travel.

NB-

Interior room layouts are indicative, as buyers may have an opportunity to design the configuration of rooms within the property, depending on the stage the build has reached when they purchase. Please contact us to discuss further.

NOTE: all dimensions are indicative only. First floor bedrooms also have reduced head height on one side only.
