About this property

  • A stunning five bedroom family house with a generous garden in the popular village of Great Rissington, just 6 miles from Stow-on-the-Wold and within the Cotswold School catchment area. Waterbank has been tastefully renovated and extended to provide a beautiful character home with a light modern finish, offering plenty of space for both family living and entertaining.

    The front door leads into a wonderful sitting room with stone tiled floor, fireplace and wood burning stove. Beyond is a generous drawing room with triple aspect and Cotswold stone fireplace, also with wood burning stove. The ground floor also offers a cloakroom and utility room with plenty of cupboard space and door leading to the rear garden.

    The light and spacious kitchen/breakfast room is located on a split level to the rear of the property, where the stone tiled floor continues and offers a range of contemporary Neptune kitchen units and a large pantry. The room affords plenty of space for dining and enjoys views onto the terrace through bi-folding doors.
    The first floor benefits from a master bedroom with en suite shower room, with countryside views to the front and garden views to the rear. Three further double bedrooms and a family bathroom are located on the first floor with a staircase leading up to a guest bedroom featuring a roll top bath overlooking the garden and a separate en suite WC.

    Waterbank is presented to the highest standard and must be seen to be appreciated. The property is fully insulated and double glazed throughout with underfloor heating to the ground floor and radiators upstairs. All rooms have individual heating controls and there is Cat 6 cabling throughout.

    The property sits in an elevated position on a quiet lane in the village with parking for several cars on the driveway and a Cotswold stone garage with electric up and over door.

    The mature gardens wrap around the property with a substantial terrace area, lavender beds and large raised lawn area to the rear, all bounded by a Cotswold stone walling and overlooking fields to the rear of the property.

Waterbank is a slice of Cotswold heaven, I particularly love the kitchen which leads on to the south facing terrace and garden.
