The Fold Yard, Oversley Castle Estate, Wixford, Warwickshire

Floorplans For Wixford, Warwickshire


The Fold Yard occupies a splendid courtyard setting within the managed grounds of Oversley Castle. The property itself is built of mellow red brick beneath a mainly clay tiled roof and was completely refurbished approximately three years ago. The current owners have made further improvements to the property especially with regard to the garden. The conversion of the barn to a residential dwelling has both retained the period features such as exposed wall and ceiling timbers as well as incorporating modern features such as underfloor heating and part sedum green roof. The overriding feel of the property is one of contemporary stylish living. Internally the property is designed to take full advantage of the sweeping views to the south.

The arrangement and measurements of the rooms can be seen on the accompanying floorplans. Briefly it comprises a welcoming entrance hall with oak clad walls and a large picture window framing the view. The hall provides internal access to the double garage with electric roller door. At the heart of the property is a magnificent kitchen/living room being double aspect with large sliding glazed doors providing unobscured views as well as giving direct access to the garden. This room has an open truss frame and substantial vaulted ceiling, some exposed painted brick together with a contemporary wood burning stove. The bespoke high quality contemporary kitchen is fully fitted with a mix of oak and off white cupboards and drawers, with a Franke sink and quartz stone work surfaces. The built in Siemens appliances include an induction hob with pop up Falmec extractor, a pair of conventional electric ovens, a combination microwave/electric oven, warming drawer, wine chiller, American fridge freezer, dishwasher and a Quooker boiling tap. There is a large central island incorporating an oak breakfast bar. The kitchen has extensive cabinet lighting. Natural Jerusalem limestone flooring extends to most of the ground floor.

A spacious inner hall with solid oak staircase provides access to the first floor bedroom accommodation as well as to a guest cloakroom and well appointed utility with door to outside. Also on the ground floor are two charming bedroom suites, one with French doors to the garden. On the first floor is a sizeable landing with an internal window overlooking the living room currently used as a study. There are two first floor double bedrooms, one with a Juliet balcony, and two independent shower/bathrooms. The master and guest bedrooms have beautifully handcrafted oak wardrobes. The property is wired for a Sonos entertainment system with speakers fitted to the principal rooms and garden terrace. The high quality shower/bathrooms include the liberal use of Travertine tiling.

The property provides a most attractive spacious family house with a versatile layout and would also be ideal as a base for those who like to travel looking for a property in a secure and private setting.


The private garden faces due south, is partly walled and takes full advantage of the panoramic views. Adjacent to the house on the west elevation is a substantial stone paved terrace ideal for al fresco summer dining linking to other terraces via a cobbled pathway. The garden is principally laid to lawn and is deliberately simple to benefit from the setting. Adjacent to the main terrace are a number of maturing choice trees and shrubs and a fountain feature. On the north and east sides of the property accessed via the courtyard is parking for several vehicles as well as a pedestrian side gate giving direct level access to the garden.
