About this property

  • Cherry Meadow House is a superb property, originally dating back to the 1950s and much improved and extended by our clients, into a delightful, New England style house.

    Approached via a sweeping, lime tree lined drive, the house is centrally located in grounds of just over approximately five and a half acres.

    The accommodation flows remarkably well with a high attention to detail throughout the property, including bespoke windows and doors by Westbury and Buscot limestone floors in the kitchen and hall.

    The kitchen/dining room is an especially impressive space, with fantastic oak framed windows and a magnificent lantern flooding the room with natural light. Bifolding doors open on to a south-facing terrace.

    Designed to a high specification with a five door AGA, additional induction hob and Bosch oven, integrated Hotpoint dishwashe, Silestone work surfaces and an excellent, large island. A cosy sitting room, with engineered oak boards, lies off to the south and a useful boot room to the north.

    The elegantly proportioned drawing room has a wood burning stove and sash windows to the east and French windows on to the garden to the south, providing wonderful views of the stunning grounds.

    Off the first floor landing, which benefits from an amazing lantern, are five bedrooms, one of which is presently used as a study/home office, and a family bathroom. The principal bedroom comprises a dressing room and space for an en suite but requires work. The double aspect principal guest bedroom has a balcony and en suite shower room.

    Cherry Meadow has beautiful gardens and paddocks, including an enchanting copse or mature oak trees and a pond. To the front of the property is a veranda with oak pillars and to the side a smart terrace. To the front is also a sheltered air-source heated swimming pool. There is a double garage to one side and former planning permission for a cart lodge (now lapsed).

    Mains water and electricity; private drainage; wood pellet boiler central heating.

Cherry Meadow House is a wonderful property in a particularly peaceful location. I especially love the kitchen, which has fantastic oak framed windows overlooking the beautiful gardens.
