    About this property

    • Situated in the heart of the Cotswolds, Larch Hill is a handsome country house. The sale of the property presents a very special opportunity to purchase a house with integrity and traditional charm.

      The beautifully presented accommodation is set out over two floors with many of the principal rooms facing south across the gardens and towards the countryside beyond. All the reception rooms are well-proportioned with large windows allowing the light to flood in. The drawing room, which is situated between both halls, has a large square bay window to make the most of the views. There is also a substantial sitting room with an open fireplace and doors opening to the rear terrace. The formal dining room is adjacent to the kitchen/breakfast which sits at the heart of the home. Completing the ground floor accommodation is a south facing morning room, office and cloakroom.

      The dual aspect principal bedroom benefits from a well-appointed bathroom and a range of fitted cupboards. There are four further first floor bedrooms, one of which is en suite, two family bathrooms and two shower rooms. There is a wonderful sitting room on the first floor with large picture windows framing the stunning views across the gardens and countryside beyond.

      Accessed from the reception hall is a integral flat with bedroom, sitting room, kitchen and bathroom. The flat has an independent entrance so can be self-contained if required for guests or staff.

      The layout of the accommodation is extremely versatile and offers scope for remodelling and modernisation subject to the usual consents.

      The property is approached through electric gates set in a stone wall and over a substantial, gravelled parking area.

      The manicured gardens and grounds are a very special feature of the property and extend to about 13.8 acres with far reaching rural views. The gardens are divided into different ‘rooms' including a meticulously maintained rose garden, wonderful walled garden with potential for a swimming pool and tennis court, and a fir garden. There is a charming stone detached garden room. Beyond the gardens are informal gardens and paddocks. A secondary entrance leads to a four car garage with storage room over.
