an attractive, detached cotswold family home lying in a charming setting beside a quintessential village green, enjoying a useful two-bedroom holiday cottage and pretty cottage gardens.

The Property

Located in the original part of this traditional village, set behind a sweeping dry-stone wall, lies this extended period Cotswold stone residence offering a wonderful package including a two-bedroom holiday cottage, in addition to a useful studio/ storeroom, beautiful gardens and plentiful gated parking.

The ‘L shaped’ main house is divided into two parts; the modern and fashionable extension with its impressive family kitchen/breakfast measuring just under 40ft, contrasting with the oldest section which displays delightful character features such as stone mullion windows, window seats, exposed beams as well as the drawing room and main bedroom enjoying surprisingly high ceilings.

Loved by the current owners for many years, this home provides comfortable country living to suit family’s needs of all ages; no matter your household dynamic, the most important room, forming the heart and central hub of the building is the 39’6” Family Kitchen/Dining Room. Even though it’s clearly an open plan design, there are three main areas cleverly depicted by different fixture and fittings. The ‘farmhouse style’ kitchen with its vaulted ceiling has a tiled floor and is fitted with bespoke wooden units, an island, a pantry cupboard along with the all-important ‘Aga’. Wooden floors flow from the dining area into the sitting room end. A modern wood burner acts as central focal point; this relaxing area also enjoys a part vaulted ceiling. In contrast, the drawing room boasts a stone fireplace and hearth with a wood burner, wooden floors and French doors opening out onto the front patio. The snug, probably the oldest room, similarly offers a fireplace with a wood burner and wooden floors. Other useful areas on the ground floor include a cloakroom, hall utilised as a boot room and a utility which houses the boiler.

Access to upstairs can be found via two staircases, one to the period side and the other to the extension, with the first floor study providing a link to them both. The larger of the two landings has handmade wardrobes and storage with access to the attic bedroom and offers great space for different uses. The main bedroom suite benefits from a walk-in wardrobe and ensuite bathroom. Off the main landing there is the family shower room, access can also be gained into the study/hobbies room. From here a door leads to a smaller landing and two further bedrooms.

Holiday Cottage

This cottage sits at a higher level to the main house providing privacy to both dwellings, conveniently screened behind a hedge away from the parking area. On the ground floor there is the kitchen/breakfast room, two bedrooms and a shower room with the 23’9” sitting/dining room being on the next level. There is a private courtyard garden with a small, raised lawn and wide flower beds.

Outside

Over the years the grounds have been transformed into especially designed outdoor rooms. The good-sized L shaped parking area is located at the top of the plot behind double wooden gates. A Cotswold stone wall divides the main house away from the vehicles with a wooden door opening onto a path which leads through the top section of garden, down some stone steps to the main part and the house. These cottage style gardens are mainly laid to lawn with a well-designed scheme of planted beds and a variety of trees. For private and south facing al fresco dining and entertaining the terrace directly in front of the property is the perfect spot. Tucked behind hedging is a well disguised working area with a green house. Access to the potting shed and studio/store room can be located off the main pathway. Valley views across the village rooftops towards Frampton Mansell can be enjoyed from various points.
