The Property

Steeped in local history, this imposing detached village residence is believed to date back to the early 1600’s. In recent years this Grade-II listed home has undergone a programme of improvements including an extension, partial restoration, and stylish modernisation along with the addition of a garden room. With historic associations with local government and formally a public house, this sizable family home now provides well-proportioned accommodation over three floors, excluding the small cellar. It oozes character and charm from a bygone era including stone-mullion windows and exposed ceiling timbers contrasting beautifully with the modern upgrades such as the new kitchen, new bathroom and magnificent single-storey extension. The formal front door leads into a wide hall,currently utilised as a play area. From here access into the sitting room and living room can be found along with further door leading out to the utility, cloakroom and boot room beyond. The sitting room is the more formal of the reception rooms and sits to the front of the house with a wooden floor and a fireplace with woodburner. The living room is situated at the rear, and also benefits from a stone fire place with woodburner. The stylish refitted kitchen boasts an aga with extra module, and copious amounts of storage. An attractive limestone floor meanders from the kitchen into the fabulous newly-built dining room extension with roof lantern and bi-fold doors out into the garden. Upstairs, on a mezzanine level lies one of the four large double bedrooms with impressive Aframe beams. Off the wide landing there are two further bedrooms and a modern family bathroom. A wooden staircase travels up to the attic level where a large landing/study area is located with a door leading into a further beamed bedroom. The transformation isn’t complete in this area, therefore it offers the next family an opportunity to add value and their own styling. The property is heated with gas central heating

Outside

The grounds have also been enhanced and are a real asset. A gated drive leads to a parking area suitable for several cars with electric charging point. Enclosed mainly by Cotswold stone walls and fencing, this level garden is mainly laid to lawn with a sun terrace and pergola over, a further circular patio, a wildlife pond in addition to various trees and flower borders. The detached garden room is made of three areas; a garden store and two other useful hobby spaces. Beyond this, lies a hen coop and greenhouse. The well-fitted shepherd hut can be purchased under separate negotiations. Ofcom states indoor mobile coverage should not be expected, however the property benefits from Gigaclear Superfast broadband facilitating WI-FI calling.
