About this property

  • St. Nicholas House is a spacious Cotswold stone property which enjoys an enchanting position opposite the village church, from whence its name derives. The present owners have transformed it into a stylish home which is beautifully finished throughout, with much thought having gone into re-designing and extending the interior.
    The front door opens from an entrance porch into a very welcoming reception hall. To the side is the drawing room with glorious views to the church. This is an excellent room with central fireplace fitted with a log burning stove, and panelled cupboards to either side. French doors lead into the garden allowing flow when entertaining. Across the hall is the less formal sitting room, currently used as a library and snug. The room could act as an occasional fifth bedroom as there is an adjacent cloakroom with bath. The spacious kitchen is the piece de resistance; flooded with light and well-fitted with bespoke wooden units incorporating a 4 oven Aga. A generously proportioned island, housing an additional fan oven and induction hob, separates cooking and dining areas whilst two sets of French doors lead out onto the garden, perfect for summer living. A side door from the kitchen opens conveniently to a covered oak-framed portico and the parking area. Adjacent to the kitchen is the laundry room plus a utility/boot room, with recently installed oil-fired boiler, which interconnects with the double garage.
    From the hall a staircase rises to the first floor where windows afford pretty views towards the Church, the Cotswold stone roofs of the village, or the surrounding countryside. There are four bedrooms and three bath/shower rooms; the Master Bedroom and Guest Bedroom being ensuite. The house is warmed by a combination of radiators and underfloor heating, complemented by conservation-style timber double-glazed windows, plus a newly insulated loft for energy efficiency.
    St Nicholas House is approached through a gated shared drive with a private gravelled parking area for 4-5 cars adjacent to the house and garage. A path leads round the front and on through a side gate to the rear garden which faces southwest, providing a sunny tranquil haven. The whole garden is enclosed with Cotswold stone walls and beautifully stocked with an array of interesting plants and shrubs. The lawn is partly bordered by a lily pond which attracts an abundance of wildlife, and there are paved terraced areas perfect for al fresco dining, plus a secure garden store.

Best of class properties are a rare find but St Nicholas House certainly falls into this select category.

Local information

  • The much sought-after village of Cherington is an unspoilt Cotswold gem, approached down picturesque lanes in undulating countryside within the Cotswolds Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. With its central green, village hall and Grade I Listed church (dating back to the 13th century) the village affords many social opportunities including a summer highlight - The Cherington Flower Show. The nearby market town of Tetbury, a chic weekend destination famed for its antique shops, also offers a range of exclusive boutiques, restaurants, and cafes plus a supermarket for fuel and provisions. Cirencester, a pretty market town about 6 miles distant, offers a more extensive range of shops including Waitrose, as does Stroud with its award-winning Farmers' Market. Cheltenham (known for its horse-racing, jazz and literary festivals) and Bath (a UNESCO world-heritage site celebrated for its beautiful Georgian architecture and Roman spa) are both within a one-hour drive. Local recreational pursuits include Minchinhampton Golf Club (1.5 miles), polo at Westonbirt or Cirencester Park, and water sports at the Cotswold Water Park. Many glorious country walks can be enjoyed from the village which is on the Macmillan Way and Cotswold Cycle Way.
  • First class schools in the area include Westonbirt School, Beaudesert Prep, Rendcomb College, St Mary's Calne, Wycliffe College and Cheltenham Ladies College, plus Stroud High School and Marling Grammar Schools.
