Grade II Listed house with south facing garden.
Garden House is a charming Grade II Listed village house situated in an idyllic village. The house has been lovingly restored to a very high specification and is complemented by a romantic south facing landscaped garden.
As you enter the property you are presented with a beautiful dining room with restored flagstone floor and log burner set within an impressive fireplace. From here your eye is drawn to the stunning bespoke kitchen/breakfast room made by Stroud Furniture Makers, and featuring leathered granite worktops, giving a sophisticated finish to what is the heart of the house. Bespoke cast iron French doors by Cotswolds Casements open onto the beautiful garden and inner courtyard. The kitchen is furthered complemented by a central worktable. There is a Lacanche induction range, a larder with marble cold shelf and a hidden coffee station. The bespoke utility room, also created by Stroud Furniture Makers, is ideal for muddy boots and dogs and is conveniently accessed via the property's side gate. A glass atrium allows light and sunshine to flood in and is the perfect spot for a table and chairs. The kitchen and atrium have underfloor heating while the rest of the house has upsized cast iron radiators designed to work effectively throughout with the air source heat pump.
The sitting room has beautiful traditional panelling and a wood burning stove which makes it the perfect place to relax in. Connecting all three of these rooms is the family room which has classic French doors opening out onto the beautifully kept garden and gravelled courtyard. A cloakroom beside the utility room, featuring wallpaper by Timorous Beasties, completes the ground floor accommodation.
A staircase rises from the dining room to the first floor where there are three double bedrooms. The principal bedroom has ample storage and a high end en suite with a mounted roll top bath and separate shower. The family bathroom is located beside the rear bedroom and serves this and the remaining bedroom. On the top floor the fourth bedroom has a pitched roof and open plan en suite with freestanding bath and amazing views of the countryside. There is an excellent range of fitted cupboards on the first floor landing.
At the top of the garden stairs is an outbuilding with remote controlled independent heat source and a shower room. This very useful space could be used as a fifth bedroom, home office, gym or studio.
Technologically, the house has been brought up-to-date with a new heat pump, remote operated thermostats, a smart lock and integrated alarm system, an integrated sound system connecting the living room, kitchen area and dining room, as well as an electric car charger. The Wifi is Gigaclear and the outbuilding is connected via a cat 6 cable to accommodate home working needs. The premium specification includes paints by Mylands and Paint & Paper Library, bathroom fittings by Lefroy Brooks, light fittings by Original BTC, and kitchen appliances by Lacanche and Miele.
The garden is a special feature of the property being south facing and well-tended with dwarf stone walls, lawns, flower beds, shrubs, fruit trees, terraced beds and roses. At the top of the garden is a children's play area and garden shed. To the front of the property are three off-street parking spaces. There are fine views towards Chastleton House, a Jacobean country house owned by the National Trust.
