About this property

  • Overdale is a delightful detached property constructed of natural Cotswold stone. The house has been beautifully refurbished by the current owners to provide light and spacious accommodation over two floors. The property is beautifully maintained and is decorated with a subtle palette of colours throughout. Overdale is within easy reach of many well-known Cotswold destinations and would make a wonderful village home or weekend retreat.

    A welcoming entrance hall leads to a well-proportioned sitting room with wood burning stove. Two windows overlook the front garden allowing light to flood in. The sitting room opens onto the music room/study with bespoke bookcases and French doors to the side garden. There is an impressive kitchen with an excellent range of fitted cabinets and a central island and a large dining area with French doors which open onto the south-facing terrace, perfect for al fresco dining. Adjoining the kitchen is a well-equipped utility room with separate cloakroom. Completing the ground floor accommodation are two double bedrooms, both with en suite shower rooms.

    The first floor landing has been fitted with bookshelves with room for a study area. The principal bedroom enjoys wonderful views of the Evenlode Valley to the front and the garden to the rear. There is also an en suite shower room and a walk-in wardrobe. There are two further bedrooms, one with an excellent range of built-in wardrobes. Both bedrooms enjoy the countryside views and share a generous family bathroom with roll top bath and separate shower cubicle.

    Overdale is approached via a gravel driveway with parking for four cars. The south-westerly landscaped garden surrounds the house with a large area of lawn with well-stocked beds and a summer house. There is a dedicated area for growing vegetables with a greenhouse and raised beds. A large paved terrace to the rear is the perfect place to relax and entertain. A mature Yew hedge ensures privacy.
