This unique charming home is perched on a leafy hillside, overlooking the beautiful panorama of The Golden Valley, in the heart of the Cotswolds. This house, measuring in total 2357 sq ft, offers the potential of up to six bedrooms, lying in more than half an acre of mature gardens, all in a secluded position within an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The imaginatively designed semi-detached property is crammed with character features including reclaimed architectural antiques, multiple French doors, woodburning stoves, oak floors and staircases. The owner is an artist who currently utilises the accommodation as four bedrooms, an office, studio, two reception rooms and a kitchen/breakfast room. The property layout lends itself to many different arrangements dependent on requirements. Enter through an impressive tiled open porch with a useful under croft store. The front door gives access into a wide hall with a cloakroom. Characterful wooden parquet flooring leads through into the kitchen/breakfast room, well equipped with stylish wall and floor units, larder style cupboard and a Rangemaster cooker, a cooks delight. The window above the sink looks out across inspiring rolling hills. Wide wooden steps lead into a light, spacious dining room with wood floors, wood burner and glass doors onto a pretty courtyard. On the next floor the fantastic light sitting room also has wide wooden floorboards, wood burner and more French doors opening onto a balcony with wonderful views. The studio rooms also enjoy natural light flooding in and French doors onto the garden terrace overlooking wooded hills. The landing on the mezzanine floor is easily big enough for a study area. It leads to a double bedroom and a utility/drying room with a high vaulted ceiling. On the top floor the main bedroom has superb private valley views, a wall of fitted wardrobes and a charming ensuite bathroom with a skylight. You’ll also find two more double bedrooms and a family bathroom on this level.


Highcroft is tucked away off a quiet, leafy country lane winding up the hillside. You turn up a block-paved drive, (owned by the house but shared with your neighbour) where there is a lot of parking space. The glorious landscaped and terraced gardens measure just over 0.5 acres and offer sunny seating areas at various times of the day with aweinspiring views. Winding paths lead to woodland area with wild garlic and cow parsley under mature trees bordering farmland. There are also veg and fruit beds with a greenhouse and summer house. Shared septic tank.
