There is also a large dining room complete with high ceilings and characterful bay window, sitting room / snug, gym, utility room and a fantastic kitchen breakfast room complete with hand built units and direct access to the garden. On the first floor there are five bedrooms and two bathrooms. Of particular merit is the large principal bedroom complete with a beautifully fitted en-suite bath and shower room. This bedroom further benefits from a fabulous barrelled ceiling. On the second floor the well proportioned rooms continue with two further double bedrooms and another bathroom.

    Externally the property benefits from a an equally attractive Cotswold stone cottage. Internally there is a sitting room, kitchen breakfast room, three bedrooms and family bathroom. This incredibly versatile space could be great for letting, home office or as staff accommodation.

    Sandford House benefits from a lovely approach through twin pillars with a gravel drive leading to the front of the house. There is ample parking for a number of cars and although in the heart of the village there is a real feeling of privacy. The gardens are mostly laid to lawn with some formal flower beds and a charming stream runs through the front garden complete with attractive stone bridge into a small wooded area. At the rear of the house and cottage is a beautifully landscaped courtyard area with heated swimming pool and a terrace area perfect for al fresco dining.
