a handsome grade ii listed residence enjoying an open countryside aspect to two sides, set on the edge of a small, rural cotswold hamlet.

The Property

Built in the mid 1700’s, this impressive grade II listed detached country residence, located on the edge of a rural Cotswold hamlet is surrounded on two sides by open countryside. It is believed that it was once two houses, number 10 & 12. This stone built property is tucked discreetly behind its mature hedges & Cotswold stone walls and benefits from two drives; one drive to the front & a second gated drive to the rear. A period stone outbuilding utilised as a garage is also located in the gated courtyard behind and planning permission to convert into ancillary accommodation to the main house reference: 20/03727/FUL. The accommodation benefits from well proportioned rooms with high ceilings. The front door opens into a traditional hall with the sitting room on one side and the 31ft dining/family room on the other. The sitting room benefits from an attractive bay window to front while the dining/family (probably originally two rooms) enjoys beautiful sash windows with shutters to rear and side in addition to French doors leading out onto the patio. The kitchen/breakfast room has an aga and is located at the rear with rear porch doubling up as a utility area. There is planning permission to rebuild the utility and add a cloakroom reference: 20/02512/FUL. Upstairs on the first level lies an impressive main bedroom suite with sizable ensuite bathroom, a further bedroom & a family bathroom. On the top floor there are two further bedrooms one of which opens up into a super 19ft attic home office/hobby room. This could be an occasional 5th bedroom or a games room. The extensive cellars are quite exceptional and have an external access.


The front garden is enclosed by a stone wall with a pedestrian gate centrally located from which a path leads to the front door. A mature hedge provides privacy to the left-hand section and side gravel drive with parking for several vehicles. A gated courtyard provides further parking for vehicles and leads to a stone-built garage. To the rear of the house, by the French doors, is a terrace surrounded by a low wall providing the perfect spot for al fresco dining. Stone steps lead down to two private garden areas, which are made up of wide flower/shrub borders and laid lawn with a variety of hedging and trees. There is a gate from the garden leading directly to the adjacent public footpath. Avening 0.7
