Nestled in the popular Cotswold village of Chalford, enjoying ease of access to local amenities lies this detached period home. Formerly the village shop and post office, the property is hugely deceptive from the front facade, with well proportioned accommodation being positioned across three floors. Rich in character and boasting fantastic ceiling height, the accommodation is extremely versatile depending on your needs. The main entrance opens to a reception hall with oak flooring, from which doors open to a newly fitted utility/cloakroom, formal sitting room with open fireplace and wooden floors and a family kitchen/breakfast room with space for dining. The kitchen has been fitted with shaker style cabinets, oak worktops, a range oven and a built in dishwasher. An open doorway from the kitchen leads to a pretty conservatory which lends itself to use as a family room in turn opening to the garden. A staircase from the hall leads to the first floor where a second reception room is positioned. Formerly the village shop, the room is light and provides direct access onto the High Street. Also located on this floor is the main bedroom which is particularly impressive, with exposed floorboards, feature fireplace, tall ceilings and a huge luxurious ensuite bathroom with free standing roll top bath and a separate shower cubicle. From the landing a second staircase rises to the top floor where 3 further bedrooms and a contemporary family bathroom are positioned. All bedrooms enjoy exposed wooden floors whilst bedroom 2 boasts plentiful built in storage and bedroom 3 enjoys a pretty stone fireplace.
Steps down from the High Street lead through the gated front courtyard providing access to the main entrance. The main garden extends to the rear of the house and is accessed through the conservatory. Enjoying a waterside setting, yet elevated above the river, the garden enjoys privacy with an attractive Cotswold stone wall forming a backdrop to the outside space. A decked terrace immediately adjoins the house from which steps down provide access to an expanse of lawn bordered by flower beds. A summerhouse to far end further enhances your enjoyment of the garden. A gravel pathway leads to a rear pedestrian gate, offering external access to and from the garden. Agents note: The neighbouring cottage benefits from a pedestrian right of way through the front courtyard providing access to their property.
