A newly restored ironstone cottage with a single storey extension set in an intimate location five minutes drive from Soho Farmhouse.

Formerly part of the Great Tew Estate, The Artist's House was a cottage with a derelict farm building within a small yard that was purchased as a whole from the estate. The barn was converted and subsequently the cottage also renovated and extended incorporating eco credentials to meet with the modern world. The cottage comes to the open market for the first time in its history, blending traditional with contemporary and beautifully crafted to create stylish open plan living space whilst sympathetically celebrating is origins. The main body of the house is wonderfully charming with two bedrooms both with en suite, and downstairs a sitting room that doubles as a twin bedroom with pull down beds either side of an original fire place. A well appointed kitchen dining room leads to a light and spacious sitting room that enjoys views of the garden and countryside beyond. There is a third bedroom with en suite beyond the sitting room separated by a partition wall.

There are three properties on the site all with different outlooks that are completely separate from each other. Surrounded and interconnected with mature gardens, wildlife is often seen from the decks and outside eating areas or on the walk from the door down the lane. Hares, deer owls and the "tenement" of house martins that have returned every year from Africa make this a unique and special place. Immediately adjacent to the house there is a restricted byway flanked by mature trees and hedges for a leafy canopy running through stunning open countryside for a hearty country walk. There is a communal driveway in which there is plenty of parking for residents and guests.
