The Property

A Grade II Listed village home, thoughtfully renovated with the assistance of Verity & Beverley Architects, to provide stylish accommodation measuring 1870 sq ft. Centrally located within this highly regarded Cotswold village, Britannia House enjoys ease of access to all the village amenities and an abundance of Countryside walks. Usefully, the property benefits from two entrances, with the original front door opening into the kitchen and a side entrance for those dog walking days with muddy boots. Quintessentially English, the front façade is exceedingly pretty. Accommodation is positioned across four levels, the sociable kitchen dining room is located on the ground floor, two large windows to front elevation ensure the room is flooded with light. Recently remodelled, the kitchen has been fitted with a bespoke Neptune kitchen, in frame units and a central island, both with Silestone work tops which provide fantastic storage, whilst a well-designed larder cupboard offers room to hide away the work top clutter. Other features include a porcelain tiled floor and column radiators. A door opens to a cellar/ storeroom. A stunning handmade staircase forms a beautiful architectural feature to the room and rises to the first floor.

Positioned on the first floor is the charming sitting room, an oak framed glazed wall ensures light flows throughout both floors. Stone Mullion windows overlook the front elevation, whilst a wonderful inglenook fireplace with multi-fuel burner inset creates a period focal point to the room, a door opens to the side of the house. A charming snug/study is also located on this floor from which French doors open to the enclosed courtyard. Exposed oak floorboards and a feature fireplace with gas burner inset makes for an inviting room. Adjoining the snug is very useful laundry room/boot room, similarly, fitted by Neptune with a flagstone floor and side door opening to the covered walkway. From here stairs rise to the second floor where two bedrooms and a family bathroom are located. The main bedroom is particularly noteworthy owing to its size, double aspect stone mullion windows and pretty period fireplace. This is served by an ensuite bathroom with panelled walls and a free-standing roll top bath and shower cubicle. A staircase rises to the top floor, where a further bedroom with exposed A frame beams and adjoining dressing room are positioned. Bedrooms two and three have use of a family bathroom with a shower over the bath.

Outside

Steps up from the High Street lead to a side door which in turn opens to covered walk-way, ideal for bike and log storage, with an outside tap. This provides external access to the garden. The attractive courtyard enclosed by Cotswold stone walling has been landscaped by the existing owners, laid to flagstones, an impressive water feature forms the backdrop to the courtyard, whilst raised beds and box hedging offer great interest and colour.
