Quenington is a charming village located in the heart of the Cotswolds approximately three miles north of Fairford. This historic village, which has Saxon origins, is skirted at its eastern end by the steep sided valley of the River Coln. To

the north lie the neighbouring villages of Hatherop and Coln St. Aldwyns.

Beyond the prominent triangular Green, the village falls away towards the valley bottom. At the end of Church Road lies the popular parish church, of St. Swithin's which dates back to 1193. The surrounding buildings are randomly placed and set

within semi-wooded grounds straddling the River Coln.

The landscape north of Quenington, towards Coln St Aldwyns and Hatherop is of exceptional quality. Situated on a spur within the sweeping meander of the River Coln, this large area of parkland and meadows provide a magnificent setting for all

three villages.

The amenities within the three villages feed off each other to provide post office stores, primary, independent schooling, village inn and public house. Quenington has a strong community with a wide variety of clubs and organisations.

Nearby Fairford offers a wider selection of facilities to include secondary schooling (Farmors), convenience stores and a modern medical centre.

Northview House was privately commissioned in the early 1980's and has been traditionally constructed of natural stone elevations beneath a pitched conservation tiled roof. It features mullion with lead lighted pane windows. The property was the subject of a further extension some years ago to link the garage building with the main house. It now offers an extensive home

with flexible living space.

The entrance hall has a balcony landing, doors lead to the drawing room and kitchen. The principal reception room enjoys a dual aspect with central chimney breast housing a wood burning stove. Double doors lead into the dining room with access to the kitchen. The spacious kitchen is fitted with a range of base and wall mounted units with integral appliances and ample

space for casual dining. This room conveniently opens into the family room with its timber flooring and a second wood burning stove, access off to the large utility room with door to garaging and rear terrace.

To the first floor the main landing provides access to four bedrooms and two bathrooms, connecting dressing room leads to the self-contained first floor suite positioned over the garage with two further bedrooms or home offices and shower room with WC.

Extensive front and rear gardens laid mainly to lawn with generous sized driveway affording parking for several cars.

Northview House is freehold and will offer vacant possession upon completion. The property is connected to mains electricity, water and drainage. It has an oil-fired boiler that powers the domestic hot water and heating systems. (The village is not served by mains gas). It has been placed in Council Tax Band 'G' for Council Tax purposes, charges 2020/21 £3,009.45. Energy Performance Band 'D'.

Leaving Fairford to the north via Coronation Street, on entering the village of Quenington take the first right at the green toward the public house. Bear left at the former telephone box into Mawley Road and Northview House will be seen a short distance along on your left.
