The Property

An impressive Cotswold stone property, originally three houses, was converted by the Nation family into their local stain glass workshops. This well-presented fashionable terraced home displays many stunning character features such as stone mullion windows, window seats, exposed beams plus several beautiful examples of stained-glass windows and panels. The residence fulfils expectations immediately you step up through the open porch into the inner hall with the main entrance hall sitting directly behind. A vaulted inner hall area, home to the cloakroom and staircase, hugely benefits from the natural light coming from stained glazed French doors. Facing the front, lies the two main reception rooms; one with a concealed doorway leading down to the secret cellar/studio room, in addition to some display cabinets believed to have been added by the same family. The other room boasts a magnificent inglenook fireplace with bread oven and a fascinating period range. During the current seller’s ownership, they have greatly enhanced the accommodation by installing a new kitchen and new shower room with underfloor heating, a new Garden Room and wooden floors. The kitchen/ breakfast room with its Aga and pantry sets the scene as the central hub of family life, enjoying access into the Garden Room with bi-fold doors opening out onto the private walled garden. On the first floor, the character and wellproportioned rooms continues with two bedrooms offering ensuite facilities, two further double bedrooms facing the front with a fifth bedroom in the attic. These bedrooms are served by the family shower room.


A precious amenity is the 21’ 9” integral garage benefiting from an electric door to front and a personal door leading into the garden. The rear walled garden is delightful; the architecture is in place to create whatever your family requires whether that’s an area for a trampoline or a private spot to enjoy al-fresco entertaining. It’s mainly laid to lawn with a variety of trees including a magnolia, cherry and lilac trees in addition to a water feature and period shed, formally the old privy.
