This substantial and stylish Cotswold home was converted approximately twenty years ago and provides 3695 sq. ft. of versatile accommodation. The property has also been extended, and now enjoys superb family living in an ‘L shaped’ configuration with staircases at both ends of the property. On entry you are welcomed into an open plan layout, commencing in the breakfast room with an ample sized kitchen beyond. This modern kitchen boasts a centrally fitted oil fired aga with an electric aga module. From the breakfast room a door leads off to the formal drawing room which benefits from an impressive open fireplace, full-height exposed beams, Cotswold stone walls and an original feature stone arch. It is further complemented with an East-West dual aspect and two sets of double opening glazed doors flooding the room with natural light. From here the main staircase rises to the first floor. The study/snug is found off the drawing room with access to the cloakroom. On the other side of the house, an open doorway leads from the breakfast room to the dining/family room with cosy log burner, bi fold doors out onto the rear patio, and a second staircase leading up to the first floor. A rear hallway leads to the utility/boot room, and integral garage (where the boiler is housed). On the first floor the master bedroom with dressing room and ensuite is found and can be accessed from both landings. Also located on this level are two bedrooms with ensuites, one with a staircase leading up to study/ or occasional bedroom, with three further bedrooms on the other side, in addition to a luxury family bathroom.
This property represents a fabulous opportunity to live in the countryside and yet only be a hop, skip and jump from Cirencester. The abundance of features that this character home provides, coupled with its breath-taking views demand priority viewing.
Surrounded by Cotswold stone walls and accessed via a five-bar gate, the extensive gravelled driveway leads to the front of the house where the integral single garage is found in addition to an enclosed landscaped and level area with a range of mature trees, climbing roses, shrubs and log store. The rear of the property is accessed via a pathway and is mainly laid to a lawn with mature flower beds and benefits from incredible views beyond. Tucked away is paved patio which leads to a further area ideal for entertaining with additional seating, purpose-built bar and barbeque, and plenty of seating to watch the spectacular sunsets this property enjoys.

Coates is a village within the Cotswold Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, and is known as the source of the Thames. It is surrounded by farmland and with views to the north and west of Hailey Wood, part of the privately owned Cirencester Park. Coates itself benefits from a vibrant village hall and social club, a cricket pitch and a parish church which dates to the 13th Century. The historic market town of Cirencester is only 3.5 miles away and provides an excellent range of shops and services including Waitrose and Tesco superstores. In the opposite direction a farm shop known as the ’Jolly Nice’ offers a wide selection of organic produce. Larger regional centres include Cheltenham, Gloucester, Bath and Swindon. Train services from nearby Kemble have direct connections to London Paddington. Both the M4 and M5 motorways are within easy reach. Recreational facilities include polo at Cirencester Park, golf at Cirencester and Minchinhampton, and a selection of water sports at the Cotswold Water Park. There are also lovely riverside walks along the infant River Thames and local bistro pubs. The area is also noted for both its private and state schools. The former includes Beaudesert Park School, Wycliffe College, Rendcomb College and Westonbirt School.
