    About this property

    • Rynehill House is a former farmhouse which used to sit at the heart of a substantial farm. Today this handsome village house with walled gardens and a number of outbuildings offers enormous scope. Subject to the relevant consents, the possibilities are endless: party barn, gym, holiday cottages, offices or workshops to name but a few.

      The main house is entered along a private gravel drive to a parking area with coach style archway, which leads to the house and gardens. A path leads to the front and back doors. An elegant portico frames the front door. Constructed of Cotswold stone below a slate roof, the property is traditional in style and includes features such as open fireplaces and some exposed timbers.

      The well-proportioned and very flexible accommodation works well with a substantial drawing room, formal dining room and sitting room off the hall and the kitchen/dining room linking to the working side of the house with utility and boot rooms, as well as a home office. On the first floor is the principal bedroom with en suite bathroom and dressing room, six further bedrooms, two of which are en suite, and two family bathrooms.

      Rynehill House is perfect for modern family living but still offers scope to reconfigure if required. There is potential to create a self-contained annexe comprising sitting room, kitchen, cloakroom, bedroom and bathroom if desired.

      There are private walled gardens to the front of the property with large paved terrace area, herbaceous border and areas of mature lawn. Within the grounds is a heated outdoor swimming pool. There is a garage, a range of outbuildings and a huge party barn, all of which offers even further scope. The outbuildings can be used for storage or as loose boxes as required.

      Lot 2 Guide £200,000
      Across the road from the property is a field, which extends to about four acres, and a tennis court.
