About this property

  • Situated in an elevated south-east facing position, The Retreat offers beautifully presented accommodation arranged over two floors with the majority of rooms enjoying arguably one of the finest views in the Cotswolds. All the rooms are well proportioned with good ceiling heights and offer a feeling of space and light throughout.

    The stylish accommodation provides for extremely versatile modern living with family or equestrian life in mind. The heart of the home is a wonderful L-shaped kitchen/breakfast room with gas Aga and a range of integrated appliances. Adjoining the kitchen is a superb oak framed garden room with bi-fold doors overlooking open countryside. The formal dual aspect dining room and well-proportioned triple aspect sitting room with wood burning stove also enjoy far reaching rural views. There is a useful secondary kitchen and a boot room which provide additional storage.

    The bedroom accommodation is superb with four bedroom suites and two further bedrooms, accessed via a separate staircase, which share a bathroom.

    A delightful courtyard garden with oak pergola leads you to the equestrian facilities comprising five spacious stone and block work stables and three store/tack rooms. Combined with approximately nine acres of paddocks approached by the adjacent pathway, they provide exceptional equestrian potential.

    Adjoining the stables is the garaging which provides heated parking for four cars. A door leads to a utility room and WC. Above the garaging is a self-contained flat providing a sitting/ dining room, galley kitchen, bedroom and bathroom. There is also an external door allowing access to the utility room and flat without the need to walk through the garaging.

    The property is approached over a gravel drive which terminates to the side of the house. The property is complemented by a mature garden which adjoins open countryside with immediate access to wonderful walking along a network of footpaths.

    This is a special opportunity to acquire a superb country property in a wonderful setting with valuable equestrian amenities just a pleasant stroll away from Stow-on-the-Wold's
    Market Square.
