Stylish living in the heart of this pretty village.
Built by the present owners in 2010, The House on the Square lies in the centre of the village. Constructed of mellow Cotswold stone, the house is wonderfully light and spacious with great attention having been paid to design detail.
The sweeping staircase makes a graceful centrepiece to the house with its stunning lines continuing up and curving around the galleried landing. Further design details include deep skirtings, detailed architraves and cornicing and bespoke cabinetry by Rencraft. High end appliances include Miele in the kitchen and Lefroy Brooks sanitaryware to the bathrooms.

The study is fitted with bespoke cherry and maple bookshelves and cupboards to three walls, and there is a good sized utility room, which also accesses the garage and a cloakroom.
Stairs wind to the galleried landing where a pleasing curved wall mirrors the curving staircase. The principal bedroom overlooks the south facing garden. Wardrobes are built in to one wall. The en suite shower room has an oak vanity unit with matching basins inset within a limestone top and nickel taps. There are four further bedrooms, one with an en suite shower room, all with built-in wardrobes. The generous family bathroom has two pedestal basins with a separate bath and shower.
A high stone wall with pleached hornbeam hedge above borders the front boundary. A gravel drive offers ample parking with a double garage to one side. The rear garden is mostly laid to lawn interspersed with mature trees. A terrace spans the breadth of the house with a bespoke pizza oven at one end. There is a wooden summerhouse, wendy house, garden shed and three raised vegetable beds.
