a handsome detached cotswold stone period country residence with an attached coach house and further period outbuildings enjoying wonderful countryside views.

The Property

Believed to date back to 1820’s, this impressive Cotswold stone house, steeped in local history, offers traditional family accommodation oozing much character and original features. The property can formally be entered at the front through a wooden door with canopied open porch into the original hall with vaulted ceiling and access to the cellar, however on a day to day basis the entry is via the back door which opens into a welcoming 18’1 x 8’11” reception hall. This whole area has original tiled and parquet floors, in addition to an illuminated well, and could be utilised for several purposes due to the generous dimensions.

The delightful sitting room benefits from a dual aspect with attractive stone mullion windows and a window seat facing the front aspect and a stone fireplace with wood burning stove being the central focal point. Also enjoying stone mullion windows is the family room. Both formal reception rooms have surprisingly high ceilings, as does the majority of the accommodation. At the side of the house, lies a well-fitted kitchen with Aga, enjoying a superb countryside vista. A step up to the 17’ 8” breakfast room, makes this special open plan area ‘the heart of the home’. Off the breakfast room the study is located, this too has a wonderful view. From the kitchen, an inner door directly opens into the scullery or prep kitchen. This is an incredibly useful room, especially for those who entertain regularly. An inner hall links this space with the reception hall, passing the cloakroom with fitted laundry and utility cupboards. A great home for children playing hide and seek.

Off the landing on first floor lies the main bedroom suite, which comprises of a double bedroom with dressing room and ensuite bathroom (a little dated). It’s a delightful light bedroom benefiting from stone mullion windows. A further double bedroom with fitted wardrobes and stone mullion windows sits opposite. At the rear, with a view of the garden sits another bedroom with fitted cupboards. This is currently used as a second home office.

Also on this level is a stylish shower room, separate cloakroom, and an enviable large airing cupboard. The second staircase leads up to two further great bedrooms, one with a sensational views of the countryside and the other with a full length view of the garden. Both bedrooms boast built￾in wardrobes. There is also a further landing area. To truly appreciate this welcoming family home, you must come and see it for yourself.

Outside

A Cotswold wall and mature hedge shelters the house from the village lane and provide privacy. The original entrance, via a drive with an attractive wrought iron gate, is not in regular use as the secondary larger drive, is far more convenient. It passes the end of the house where plentiful parking and garage is located. The views are quite stunning; you might even see the neighbour’s donkey! Beyond the parking is a grassed area which once was a productive kitchen garden. Part of the 33ft tandem garage requires repair. A further Cotswold wall shelters the gardens and Cotswold stone outbuildings from the vehicles with a path leading to the back of the house. Most of the gardens are landscaped with level lawns either side of a central path and well￾stocked flower beds running parallel. At the end, a small, wooded section is found. To the side of the house a fabulous, paved terrace has been created, perfect for entertaining. The front courtyard is sheltered by trees and hedging and offers access into the breakfast room and adjoining coach house. This period building with its double wooden doors benefits from an inspection pit with large storage above. Further Cotswold stone outbuildings consist of a studio, workshop, and store. Subject to obtaining planning permission, these exciting buildings offer great opportunities for repurposing.

Situation

Local amenities can be located nearby at Bisley and Miserden including village stores and Post office, primary schools and one or more public houses. Cranham, another neighbouring village benefits from a primary school and active scout centre. Birdlip provides a primary school along with The Royal George Hotel.
