Paxford House is Listed Grade II* and
believed to date from the early 18th
century. Requiring modernisation, the
property is symmetrical in design with 2
prominent gabled dormers, along with
five distinctive mullion and transom
windows. Built of local Cotswold stone, the
accommodation is arranged on three floors.
Attached to the south east is a 19th century
wing on two floors.
The property is approached off the village
lane over a short drive which leads to a
private gravelled area at the front of the
house. The front door opens into the
hall, off which is the dining room, library,
kitchen/breakfast room, study and the
staircase to the first floor, with a cloakroom
behind. From the kitchen, doors lead to
the pantry and utility room and another
door to a lobby with back stairs to the first
floor. This lobby also leads to the boiler
room which in turn leads through to the
The impressive staircase rises from the hall
to the landing, off which is the drawing
room, three bedrooms and a shower
room. A secondary staircase leads to the
second floor where there are three further
bedrooms, a bathroom and a storeroom.
Steps lead from the main landing to a
lobby, off which is a bathroom and a door
into the integral one bed flat with living
room, kitchen, bathroom and bedroom.
Adjacent to the house is a stone built traditional barn extending to 1,555 sq ft offering potential for a number of ancillery uses. The Local Authority have said that having reviewed the historic maps and planning history for the site, it is the opinion of Officers that the stone barns would be considered Grade II* curtilage listed as a result of their age, historic association, proximity and relationship to Paxford House.
Please note that the optimal viable use of the curtilage listed barns is likely to be as outbuildings ancillary to Paxford House, unless it can be demonstrated that the barns are not viable as ancillary outbuildings. It is therefore unlikely that Officers would support the conversion of the buildings to a separate use, as this would result in the division (’fragmentation’) of the overall asset. Case law has confirmed that the fragmentation of heritage assets is as harmful as physical works.
