The Property

An individually designed detached family home, built in the late 1980’s in a split level layout, located within ‘Old Bussage’ village. Enjoying far reaching views of the Toadsmoor Valley. this non-estate property enjoys a corner plot position. On entering the property via a mezzanine level, you are met by an open vaulted landing and lower hallway providing a flavour of space. On the entry level there is a shower room. Steps lead down to the lower ground floor and from this hallway all doors to the living accommodation are found. The living room benefits from a dual aspect with patio doors radiating out to the raised decked area. The central focal point is the fireplace with gas fire inset. A door gives a second access into the separate dining room. Both reception rooms benefit from the open valley views. The fitted kitchen also enjoys a dual aspect with access into the utility room where the boiler is found and a door to the side path. Upstairs there are four bedrooms, all fitted with built-in wardrobes. Three of them positioned at the rear enjoying the open valley views. The main bedroom benefits from an ensuite shower room with a family bathroom serving the others bedrooms. The loft might offer potential for development, subject to the relevant planning permission and building regulations. The property has very much been loved by the current owners, however it would be greatly advantageous to transform it to a more fashionable style.


A delightful corner position with the entrance to the drive denoted by two stone pillars. The parking area and the double garage with workshop to side can be located to the front of the grounds. In-between the house and the garage there are steps leading to the south facing rear garden; on the other side a landscaped lawn slopes down and sweeps around to the rear of the property with several flower and shrub borders. The boundary is depicted by an attractive Cotswold stone wall. A raised deck benefits from far reaching valley views and a delightful sunken patio offers a further area to enjoy dining al fresco. The kitchen garden is tucked behind the garage. A further patio seating area is enjoyed to the side of the garage. Great valley views are enjoyed from these gardens
