About this property

TENURE: Freehold

  • Equestrian

EQUESTRIAN - Built from smooth cut Ashlar stone in 1920 and now offering scope for renovation and extension, this detached property offers a rare chance to secure a property in this sought after Cotswold village. Occupying an elevated plot that extends to 0.95 of an acre in total, the property stands in gardens of around 0.2 of an acre with the remaining land being a paddock to the rear that has brick-built stables, a shed and access via common land to the rear of the property. There is off road parking and a detached garage alongside the road from which steps and a path lead to the house.

From the outside, the house has a colonial feel to it with a large veranda wrapping around the front and side of the house from which it is rumoured that Laurie Lee and legendary commentator John Arlott once recorded a commentary on the cricket match being played on the village ground on the other side of the valley! The principal ground floor accommodation is comprised of a sitting room with French doors to the veranda and a fireplace with wood burning stove, a dining room with open fireplace, a study and kitchen/breakfast room with door to the rear courtyard. On the first floor there are four bedrooms and a family bathroom. A ground floor utility room has a door to the courtyard and gives access to a further bathroom and cloakroom. Accessed from the rear courtyard is a brick-built workshop.

This property is featured by our Equestrian department.
