In the idyllic Oxfordshire village of Stanton St John, this red-roofed barn conversation is the best of country and city. It may be a rural base, but the charming centre of Oxford is a fifteen-minute drive away. Stanton St John has everything you need with a village shop and farm shop within a five-minute walk. Plus, meandering country walks are right on your doorstep. The home itself has been beautifully designed, with honey-hued stonework fitting in with the rustic aesthetic and a wooden pergola dappled with climbing plants shading the outdoor seating area. Just next to this there’s a big lawn which creates the back garden. Glass folding doors open up to blend indoors with outdoors so you can listen to the hum of bees and smell the flowering lavender from the breakfast table. The living room is a cosy snug, dominated by the plush velvet corner sofa as oil paintings look on. Come bedtime, bedrooms in Victorian floral splendour provide a plush place to lay your head.
