A handsome Grade II Listed village house.
Dating back to the early seventeenth-century with later additions, Old Swan House is situated in the heart of the popular village of Great Rissington. The property is Grade II listed and principally constructed of coursed limestone with an Ashlar façade beneath a stone slate roof. Nikolaus Pevesner describes the property as a delightful little C18 house with a porch with fluted Tuscan columns' (The Buildings of England, Gloucestershire 1: The Cotswolds).
The charming traditional accommodation is set out over three storeys and includes:
A substantial reception hall with a magnificent inglenook fireplace with wood burning stove and flagstone flooring.
An elegant drawing room with fireplace and French doors out to the garden.
A cosy sitting room, also with a fireplace and wood burning stove.
The country-style kitchen/breakfast room has an oil fired Aga and views over the garden.
A well-proportioned, double aspect dining room with open fireplace and display alcoves to either side.
Rear hall with storage cupboards, pantry, laundry and cloakroom.
On the first floor are three excellent double bedrooms and two bathrooms.
Two further bedrooms and a shower room are situated on the second floor along with a study area on the landing.
The property retains many of the period features expected in a property of this era including interesting fireplaces, mullion windows, exposed timbers and flagstone flooring.

Mature landscaped and gently terraced garden to the rear, principally laid to lawn with well stocked flower beds, shrubs and ornamental trees.
Productive vegetable garden with beds, fruit cages and fruit trees.
