A former coaching inn that has been lovingly renovated to provide a beautiful 5 bedroom detached home

About this property

  • Thought to date back to 1790 this former coaching inn has been sympathetically renovated throughout to create a beautiful family home or weekend retreat. Originally stone built the property offers a wealth of period features such as flagstone flooring, inglenook fireplace and exposed beams whilst providing the modern conveniences a families needs such as double glazed windows, connectivity to high speed broadband and high quality fixtures and fittings.

    Entering through the front door leads to a porch area where muddy wellies and coats can be left then into the double aspect sitting room with box bay window, double doors to the garden and a beautiful inglenook fire place with wood burning stove. Beyond the sitting room is a space that can be used as a home office and there is a side door to the parking area as well as shower room and stairs leading a double bedroom with sky light on the first floor. Turning left from the entrance porch takes you into the dining room with flagstone flooring. There is currently a table with ample room for 12 guests and double doors to the garden, round the corner is the gorgeous kitchen / breakfast room with solid wood work surfaces, range style oven with electric hob and an American style fridge / freezer. A couple of steps up from the kitchen is a cosy snug area with sofa, TV and double doors to the garden. Beyond the snug is a guest WC and a utility room with separate washing machine and dryer as well as ample cupboard space. A second staircase from the dining room takes you to a double bedroom and shower room.

    Stairs leading from the sitting room take you to the first floor where there are two double bedrooms and a family bathroom, a final staircase leads to the top floor with the airy master bedroom with built in wardrobes and en suite bathroom.

    Externally, to the side of the house there is a private graveled driveway with room for 3-4 cars. To the rear, the south facing garden includes a newly laid patio stretching the width of the house for alfresco dinning and a raised lawn which has been freshly turfed with an olive tree center piece. Views beyond the garden are of the uninterrupted Cotswolds countryside.

    Services: oil fired central heating, mains electric and water, private drainage. The property is connected to Gigaclear broadband and Sky Q – both of which (basic packages) are included in the tenancy, any additional services the tenants require will be at their own cost.

    Please note the garden will be maintained by the landlord for the first 12 months of the tenancy only.
