About this property

  • Understood to date from the late 18th century and originally four cottages, Anvil House is a deceptively spacious, detached property set in heart of this sought after village. Built of ironstone under a slate roof, with brick outbuildings, the house retains a wealth of period features. Benefitting from a central village location with access to a good range of amenities, the property also features lovely views across the village and onto rolling countryside beyond.

    A charming, dual aspect dining room features an open stone fireplace and wooden floor. The kitchen / breakfast room has fitted base and wall units, a pantry and room for a table. A generous sitting room also features the same attractive wooden flooring, beams and a stone fireplace with large wood burning stove. This opens into a versatile conservatory with wonderful views both to the church and rolling countryside. A rear hallway provides good storage and there is a WC.

    The first floor provides a generous, dual aspect principal bedroom with views across to open countryside, an in-built cupboard and adjacent shower room. The second bedroom is also a spacious, dual aspect room with views across the village. There are two further bedrooms and a bathroom.

    The property benefits from an adjoining brick outbuilding. This currently provides a store and garage / workshop, but has potential for alternative uses, subject to necessary permissions.

    To the rear of the property is a charming, walled courtyard garden with space to park a car. There is then a further paved courtyard garden, which is south facing and also accessed from the conservatory and sitting room.

I'd love to live in Hook Norton with its great array of local amenities and proximity to Soho Farmhouse and all the Cotswolds has to offer. I think Anvil House is a special village property with a lot to offer.
