The Property

Located in an elevated setting on the edge of Whiteshill village, lies this handsome detached and extended Victorian home. On entry the dining room is the first room seen with a staircase leading up to the floor floor; it also benefits from a wood burner. The snug has been utilised for many purposes over the years and currently it’s a music/home office; it boasts a beautiful Victorian feature fireplace with what’s believed to be the original ornate tiles. From the dining room, two feature red brick arches lead into the kitchen giving a feel of partial open plan living. The kitchen is fitted with wall and base units incorporating a built in fridge, oven, hob, extractor and dishwasher. There are two accesses from the kitchen both with a step up. Firstly the sitting room enjoys french doors opening on the rear garden. The cloakroom is also found here. The second access leads into the rear porch. The porch has a door leading out to the garden and a further door leading into the storage room/utility which formerly was the integral garage. Upstairs the main bedroom with an ensuite shower room has a delightful far reaching aspect across neighbouring roofs to the valley beyond. There are three further bedrooms. One is employed as a home office. The luxurious family bathroom is surprisingly large measuring 10ft x 7ft 3in and houses a shower cubicle, bath, hand basin within a vanity unity and WC.


A Cotswold stone wall lies on the western boundary with a vehicular opening onto the block paved drive with space for several cars to park in addition to a bin store and ornate pond. A side gate leads into the enclosed ‘L shaped’ side and rear garden. This private area is mainly laid to lawn with a patio lying directly outside the sitting room. There are flower beds and a couple of storage sheds.
