    About this property

    • South Orchard House is a traditional Cotswold village property situated within the Conservation Area on the edge of the highly regarded village of Longborough and enjoys spectacular country views. The property was originally a pair of cottages and retains their separate internal layouts, each having its own kitchen, living rooms, stairs and first floor accommodation. There is great potential to sensitively alter and extend the property to create a wonderful family home which meets the requirements and standards of modern living.

      Planning permission for “Alterations and refurbishments including demolition of extension, erection of two storey rear extension, dormer window and replacement garage with associated landscaping works” was granted on 3rd March 2023, reference 22/03135/FUL. The proposed scheme comprises substantially altered internal accommodation which will provide generous kitchen, dining and living areas and a guest bedroom at ground floor, and three further bedrooms, dressing room and bathrooms at first floor level. The detached garage is proposed to be extended upwards with a pitched roof to accommodate an attic study.

      Set at the end of a no-through lane, the property stands in a pretty garden which is to the south of the house. To the side of the property is parking for a number of cars as well as a single garage and workshop space.
