The Property

The Court House, a locally important property, is steeped in history as it is believed to date back to the early/mid 1500’s. Due to the many centuries of change, it too has been transformed through an amalgam of uses including a courthouse, a manor house, a public house and now a fantastic modern family home boasting substantial well-presented accommodation. Having been extended and restored within the current ownership, this residence is a perfect union of ‘old and new’. A plethora of period character features are enjoyed throughout and these blend beautifully with the fashionable décor, fixture and fittings. This winning combination creates for a very special lifestyle. The heart of the home is a bespoke designed kitchen/breakfast room with its large central island being the main focal point. A variety of built-in appliances allow you to create and cook up tasty concoctions for your family. French doors open out onto a delightful open courtyard perfect of al-fresco dining. From one end of the kitchen/breakfast room, the utility and second cloakroom are located with convenient access from the other end into the stunning formal dining with underfloor heating under a stone floor, as per the kitchen, in addition to a wood burner set with a inglenook fireplace. Whether you enjoy dinner parties or noisy Sunday lunches with the family this room offers you the perfect foundations for a special event.

The drawing room, possibly lying within the oldest origins of the house, is a magnificent room with a Cotswold stone fireplace with a wood burning stove along with French doors out onto the rear patio and the main staircase rising to the first floor. A door leads into the Sitting Room with a further Cotswold stone fireplace and access up the second stone spiral staircase opening up into Bedroom 4. On the first level the main bedroom suite with it’s well-appointed ensuite can be discovered along with three further double rooms all with individual ensuites. The attic bedroom is one of the largest rooms which boasts another bespoke ensuite. A paramount asset to Court House is the union between the location and the open valley views, as they provide both peace and privacy.


Within a traditional Cotswold stone wall, a pair of impressive electrically operated gates open onto the private drive which sweeps in front of the house onto the parking area and leads to the double garage. From here steps lead to the side and rear gardens where you’ll find a fantastic, detached studio/home office at the top of the grounds. At the rear of the house is enclosed garden with a naturally planted screen made up from a beech hedge and is mainly laid to lawn with raised flowers beds and a paved patio terrace. A five-bar gate leads on the field which wraps itself around the house. It gently slopes up to the top of the hill, down to the stream and backs onto neighbouring farmland. A separate level paddock is located closer to the main house and is currently open to the rear garden. It is enclosed with Cotswold stone drystone walling and an attractive beech hedge.
