built at the end of ‘the arts and crafts’ movement, this wellpresented five bedroom detached residence, set within grounds measuring just under 0.4 acres, is located in one of the most prestigious roads in cirencester.

The Property

This elegant Cotswold stone period property is one of the original houses built in Berkeley Road during the early 1920’s, conveniently positioned within 1.2 miles walking distance of the Market Place. The core beliefs of the ‘arts and crafts’ movement were the beauty of the material, the importance of nature as inspiration and the value of simplicity and all of these elements can be enjoyed as you wander around the property, in particular the impressive staircase with wooden bannisters, the doors, the stone fireplaces and picture rails. Another advantage is that so many rooms have a dual aspect making each room light. The current owners have not altered the integrity of their family home simply enhanced it by upgrading the facilities and décor in addition to landscaping the grounds and building an impressive 34ft Cotswold stone garage with 18ft car port. The accommodation, as shown in the floorplan, is well proportioned and offers flexibility. From the reception hall, access to all three of the principal reception rooms can be located, the grandest being the drawing room with its attractive bay window and windows to the rear overlooking the garden. Like most houses of this quality, the kitchen/breakfast room is the heart of the home with its gas fired ‘aga deluxe’, attractive range of wall and base units and quarry tiled floor in addition to French doors opening out onto the patio. A charming feature is the original bell system which is in working order. The home office is beyond the utility room.

Off the attractive landing enjoying a large window to the rear aspect, all of the upstairs rooms are accessed with the principal bedroom and bathroom at one end with the other four bedrooms and shower room at the other.

Outside

To the front there is a traditional Cotswold stone wall with wooden gates leading onto a gravelled drive with plentiful parking. Access to the Cotswold stone tandem garage is through the car port via an electric door. Both sides of the property lead to the enclosed rear garden with an attractive and secluded paved terrace with box hedging dividing this great outdoor entertaining area with the majority of the lawn. A variety of mature trees and shrubs can be enjoyed along with a couple of vegetables beds.
