Believed to date from the late 17th/early 18th century and remodelled with a new façade in the Victorian era, this most attractive Grade II Listed Cotswold stone former farmhouse is ideally situated within this pretty village close to countryside walks and road and rail links. The house is complemented by attractive mature gardens and has the benefit of a substantial attached stone barn being ideal for a number of uses. It also provides the potential for conversion to provide further accommodation subject to the necessary consents.

Arranged over three floors with a cellar in addition, the property boasts 4,038 sq ft of accommodation with an enormous amount of character throughout and an abundance of natural light with most of the rooms enjoying a double aspect. There are many retained period features which include flag stone flooring, exposed beams, fireplaces and sash windows with window seats and shutters. The ground floor provides excellent family living and entertaining space, with three principal reception rooms: a family room with wood burning stove, dining room and a spacious and elegant drawing room. In addition, a study, forming part of the original granary is arranged off the drawing room and has direct access to the rear of the property. The reception hall, with Victorian tiled floor and wide staircase rising to the upper floors, provides an attractive entrance to the property. Situated on the West side of the house enjoying views over the garden, is the kitchen/breakfast room with oil-fired Aga and separate range style oven, island unit and breakfast bar. The dining area enjoys a woodburning stove and French doors opening to the terrace and the garden. In addition, there is a utility room and a rear hall/boot room with cloakroom off.

The first floor provides three double bedrooms and two bath/shower rooms with two further bedrooms and a shower room arranged on the second floor. Forming part of the original granary with direct access to the rear of the house via the original external steps, is a further study adjoining the principal bedroom. The room also provides the flexibility to be used as an additional bedroom or as a dressing room for the principal bedroom.


The property is approached over a shared driveway through the original farmyard over which the neighbouring properties have a right of access. Complementing the house, the mature West facing walled gardens are predominantly arranged at the side of the house and divided into two areas by a high stone wall with a gate giving access to the well-manicured kitchen garden with large greenhouse and garden shed. The main part of the well established garden is predominantly laid to lawn with mature well-stocked borders, shrubs and trees with a pedestrian gate leading to the front of the house. A terrace leads off the kitchen/breakfast room ideal for alfresco dining and enjoying the garden. The rear of the house also enjoys a pretty courtyard garden, log and bike store and additional tool shed. The gravelled farmyard provides ample parking space with an open bay garage in addition, forming part of one of the original farm buildings.

The original farm buildings which formed the farmyard, have in more recent years been converted into private dwellings.
