Traditional period house in quintessential village setting on the edge of the Cotswolds
Situated in a Conservation Area at the heart of the village, Pump Close is believed to date from about 1700. Built in Cotswold stone under a Stonesfield slate roof, it has been in the same ownership for over 30 years. Not listed, the original character has been preserved and includes flagstone floors, exposed beams, leaded window lights and an inglenook fireplace. The front door opens onto a reception hall which has a wooden floor and staircase to the first floor. The sitting room is a comfortable room with a curved bay to the front with window seat, fireplace with log burning stove and a study area off. The dining room has a fine inglenook fireplace with log burning stone and connecting door to the kitchen/breakfast room. The kitchen is well appointed with a double oven, oil fired Aga supplemented by an electric oven with hob over. There is also a useful larder. Off the kitchen is a cloak/lobby, door to the rear, utility room and cloakroom.
On the first floor is a lovely galleried landing with fitted bookshelves and a large eaves linen cupboard. The master bedroom is double aspect with an en suite bathroom and there are two further bedrooms (one with stairs up to a study over) and family bathroom.
The detached annexe is also built of stone providing a bedroom, sitting/dining room, kitchen and shower room. With scope for improvement, subject to the appropriate consents, it is ideal for dependant relatives or working from home.
The property is approached via a gated entrance which opens onto ample parking. Mature landscaped gardens are laid out of various levels with lawns, deep herbaceous borders, flagstone paths and a walled orchard. There are two paddocks in permanent pasture beyond the orchard with stables/store. In all, the gardens and grounds extend to about 3.6 acres.
Services Mains water, electricity and drainage are connected. Oil-fired central heating to the house with electric heating in the annexe.
