A substantial home in a superb location, backing on to the nature reserve.

A fantastic family home situated at the end of a very quiet cul-de-sac on the outskirts of the popular town of Lechlade. This property has a superb position, backing on to the nature reserve, creating a peaceful and incredibly private outlook. Having been vastly extended over the years by the current owners, this property has been transformed into a spacious family home with a flexible living arrangement.

The accommodation comprises a hall with downstairs cloak room and two storage cupboards. The living room is dual aspect with box bay window, glass door out the garden and working open fireplace. On the other side of the hall sits a kitchen / diner which has been extended into a fantastic entertaining room with spiral staircase up to the first floor and door into the garage. The kitchen is fully fitted with an array of floor and wall mounted units, built in dishwasher, fridge, double oven, gas hob, and large walk-in larder. There is a separate utility room with door out to the garden. Also on ground floor is a separate formal dining room or snug which flows nicely into a well-appointed conservatory where you can sit enjoying all aspects of the garden.

Upstairs, above the main part of the property, are four double bedrooms (of which two benefit from built-in wardrobes) and a family bathroom. The main bedroom has been extended into a master with dressing area, built-in storage, en suite shower room and a beautiful balcony. From here there is access to the fifth bedroom / work from home office (which can also be accessed via a spiral staircase) with views over open countryside.

Outside there is a completely secluded and enclosed, wrap around garden which is laid out into many different pockets. A large patio soaks up the sun and mature borders separate this from a good sized lawned area, ponds with a stream, pergola (ideal for alfresco dining) and vegetable patch with shed. There is also gated access through to the nature reserve. To the front of the property is off road parking for two vehicles and a double garage.

A beautiful small town adjoining the River Thames and on the borders of Gloucestershire, Oxfordshire and Wiltshire, Lechlade has a population of just over 3,000. There are several independent shops, a small supermarket, a church, doctors' surgery, excellent primary school and a library. There is a healthy tourist trade, particularly in the summer, when the Thames is busy with cruisers, narrow boats and small boats. There is good fishing in the local rivers and lakes, country walks in the beautiful Cotswolds countryside, and various nature reserves in the area. The town is a good staging-post for visitors to the Cotswolds and the historic towns of Oxford and Cirencester.
