The Property

Lying in a sought after village on the southern edge of the Cotswolds, Ivy House was built in 1998 and is approached over a private drive. It is one of a pair of individually built high quality homes with elevations of natural stone beneath a slate covered roof. Discreetly positioned within the former walled kitchen garden of the nearby Dower House, it benefits from an east-west orientation, making the accommodation light and airy. The generous plot extends to almost half an acre and includes well maintained gardens, bounded on two sides by century old high mellow brick walls. There is hard flooring throughout the ground floor, with 14mm oak in all bar the kitchen and utility room, which are tiled. Three of the four double bedrooms have fitted wardrobes and there is a large loft space considered suitable for conversion, subject to obtaining any necessary consent.
