The Property

An exceptional detached family home, beautifully renovated throughout with great attention to detail, occupying a breath-taking Cotswold setting in the village of Oakridge Lynch. Approached via an oak canopied entrance porch, the main entrance opens to an impressive reception hall where a limestone floor, panelled walls and an elegant hand crafted staircase set the scene for the rest of the house. The property is well served with versatile living space, which enjoys a beautiful outlook to the landscaped garden and countryside beyond. The sociable family kitchen undoubtedly forms the hub to the house, fitted with timeless bespoke cabinets and a large central island, an Everhot range, large pantry cupboard, integral oven and integral fridge/freezer further add to the rooms great appeal. The limestone floors seamlessly flows through the kitchen, French doors open to a large decked terrace which enables the garden to become an extension of the house in warmer months. Measuring 29’4, the rooms offers plenty of space for dining and a sofa if desired. Double doors open to the adjoining Drawing Room, enabling open plan living or the option to close off the room for a more intimate feel if preferred. Overlooking the decked terrace and view beyond, the Drawing Room is an equally lovely space, being well proportioned for the easy placement of furniture. A hand carved stone fireplace with woodburning stove inset offers an attractive and warming focal point to the room. This is further complimented by a less formal sitting room and large study. Also positioned on the ground floor is a useful downstairs shower room, and large utility room which adjoins the kitchen with access to the garden.

The elegant bespoke staircase rises to the first floor where doors from the galleried landing lead to all bedrooms. The main suite is simply stunning, not only being exceptionally generous in size but affording the most wonderful Cotswold outlook, with French doors opening to a large juliet balcony, double doors open to a stunning ensuite bathroom with a large shower and free standing bath centrally positioned to take in the open vista whilst soaking in the bath. A walk-in dressing room offers great storage. A further two double bedrooms are served by ensuite shower/bathrooms, both having been beautifully appointed, however with bedroom two being particularly noteworthy due to its generous proportions, walk-in wardrobe and particularly large ensuite bath/shower room.

Whilst the property already enjoys comprehensive family accommodation measuring 2566 sq ft, it is important to highlight that it also offers scope for further expansion into the roof space if additional bedrooms were required. The property has been renovated to a high standard throughout, combining traditional Cotswold style with a contemporary twist. It is warmed throughout by zoned underfloor heating. In addition, those working from home will be pleased to learn that the property is provided with ultrafast full fibre broadband.

Agents note: Please note that this property belongs to a member of the Whitaker Seager team.

Outside

Set in just over half an acre, the property is approached by a gated gravelled driveway, offering easy parking for multiple vehicles and room for a garage subject to the relevant consents. Gardens and grounds surround the property and enjoy great privacy. The front garden is set behind a pretty Cotswold stone wall and has been planted with a variety of plants, trees and shrubs for interest and colour. The main garden extends to the side and rear of the house, boasting a southerly aspect and idyllic outlook. Beautifully landscaped across two large terraces, the garden incorporates a large level lawn, ideal for young families. Raised flower beds which are currently a riot of colour further add to the gardens great appeal. A stable block with light, power and water offers excellent garden storage. In addition it is important to highlight that the existing owners obtained planning permission that has since lapsed for change of use and extension to the existing stable to domestic dwelling S.16/0743/FUL.
