About this property

  • Linden House was constructed in Cotswold stone beneath a slate roof in 2003. In 2021 the current owners implemented a comprehensive refurbishment and extension of the property to create a very stylish home of an exceptionally high standard and with beautifully presented accommodation set out over three floors. The interiors have been decorated in a subtle and contemporary colour palette creating a sense of space and calm. The front façade has a pleasing symmetry with large sash windows and an impressive portico.

    Entering the hall with its limestone floor, a door to the right leads to a fabulous drawing room which extends the full width of the house. The entire rear wall has been replaced with glazed sliding doors to maximise the light coming into the room and enjoyment of the garden from the room. Returning to the hall, double doors lead to the kitchen/dining room with the more formal dining area at the front of the house and the kitchen with views across the rear garden. The bespoke kitchen was designed and installed by Tom Howley Kitchens and is beautifully appointed with an excellent range of cabinets with integrated Miele appliances, Mercury range cooker and Quooker water tap. A substantial island unit with integrated wine cooler provides extra preparation and dining space perfect for entertaining. A walk-through pantry leads to a well-appointed utility. A dual-aspect snug with fireplace, cosy study and cloakroom completes the ground floor accommodation.

    On the first floor is the principal bedroom with en suite shower room and views over the garden. There are three further bedrooms on this floor, one of which is en suite, a family bathroom and a bedroom five which currently used as a second study. Bedroom two is fitted with bespoke wall-to-wall fitted units which makes it an ideal dressing room. Bedrooms six and seven are on the second floor along with a bathroom.

    A substantial paved terrace adjoins the rear elevation and is the perfect place to relax or dine al fresco while enjoying the view over the stunning landscaped garden. The immaculate garden is gently layered with the upper section showcasing 12 Linden trees under-planted with lavender bushes. To one side the trees form a shaded avenue. Moving down the steps you reach a delightful summerhouse from the Kew Collection of Malvern Houses set on a paved terrace, providing an alternative place to relax. With underfloor heating and access to Gigaclear hyper fast broadband the summerhouse could be used as a home office. Opposite is a raised rectangular pond with water lilies which stands out against the greenery to create a focal point. Further down is a less formal area of the garden with masses of cottage garden plants and orchard apple trees creating a wonderful wildlife habitat for birds, bees and butterflies. Finally there is wildlife meadow garden with plum, cherry and apples trees with a path leading to Blockley brook and a timber deck. A utility path runs along the length of the garden concealed by extensive Portuguese laurel hedging. The majority of the garden is connected to an irrigation system and lighting system. The garden has been expertly designed and planted and reflects the very high level of style and consideration put into the rebirth of the house.

    The property is approached from the village lane via electric timber gates open to a large graveled courtyard in front of the house providing ample parking for six to eight cars. The double garage is situated in the corner of the driveway.
