A magical detached house with extensive and versatile accommodation including a cottage, in an elevated position with fine views on the outskirts of Charlton Kings set in over 7 acres.
Detmore House is a wonderful detached period house, understood to date originally from the 16th Century, set in the Cotswolds AONB and located in an elevated position with fine views to the South East across magical rolling countryside.
The house itself offers extensive two storey accommodation which currently comprises six double bedrooms on the first floor, each with their own en suite bathroom or shower room, accessed by twin staircases.
On the ground floor, the main front door leads in to a wide reception hall with the impressive staircase ahead and a lovely fitted log burner with wonderful surround. Adjacent is the drawing room with a bay window to the front enjoying the fabulous view and double doors in to a secondary reception room currently used as an office.
Across the inner hall is the primary cloakroom and a door in to the intimate sitting room, used by the owners on a day to day basis as a cosy TV room. There is a front to back kitchen/dining room, with a wonderfully large central island unit and a sliding bay window to the rear. Beyond is a utility room, boot room, plant room and secondary cloakroom.
Attached to the house is a cottage, independently accessed from the outside and previously used as to provide rental income on an assured shorthold tenancy. The accommodation comprises kitchen on the ground floor, with a sitting room, bathroom and bedroom on the first floor.
Beyond the house is a range of single storey outbuildings comprising a combination of garages, stores and workshops, to the side of which is a very useful log cabin that has previously been used as an office. To the rear of the house are three stables.
A long driveway leads from Detmore Close with mature borders either side opening in to formal gardens around the house. The driveway splits about halfway, with the formal entrance to the right and the rear entrance to the left. Overall the grounds extend to about 7.25 acres including an area of amenity ground immediately to the rear, paddock to the front and formal gardens below the house.
Private water, mains electricity, private drainage, oil fired central heating.
The neighbouring property has a right of way over the first section of the driveway.

This is a stunning opportunity to acquire a real best of both worlds' property, with a rural view, land, outbuildings and cottage, yet only a third of a mile from Balcarras School and close to the local facilities in Charlton Kings.Chris Jarrett
