About this property

  • PLEASE NOTE: Due to the amount of interest, this property will be going to Best & Final offers on Monday 30th January at 12 noon. Please contact us for further details.

    This is a charming detached house, built in Cotswold stone under a stone tiled roof, thought to be around 150/200 years old. The property is part of and is being sold by The Sudeley Castle Estate. The property would now benefit from modernisation and upgrading but has great scope for extension (subject to the necessary consents) or developing further. The accommodation is particularly light, many rooms having double or triple aspects, with high ceilings, original leaded light windows (some with secondary glazing), exposed floorboards and several working fireplaces.

    The accommodation is mainly over two floors, with reception room rooms either side of the entrance hall, both with working fireplaces and high ceilings. There is an inner hall with a walk-in pantry, and a kitchen to the rear, with fitted floor and wall cupboards, and a window overlooking the rear gardens. A rear lobby leads to a cloakroom and a utility/boot room with door out to the gardens. Off the entrance hall is a staircase down to the cellars (see floorplans for layout and sizes). On the first floor a landing, with storage cupboards, leads to the main bedroom, which used to be divided into two. This room has a triple aspect with a vaulted ceiling and a fireplace, plus a second door back onto the landing. There is a second bedroom with a double aspect and a large family bathroom with separate shower and bath, and windows to the side and rear, and a feature fireplace.

    Outside there is a brick built store and chicken coop, and external steps down to the cellars.

    The gardens surround the property and are mainly level, laid to grass and in part are enclosed with lovely red brick high walling.

    The property sits well back off the village lane with a driveway and lawned gardens to the front. The house enjoys 360 degree views to the surrounding hills across open countryside.

    The property is offered with no onward chain.
