About this property

  • Firefly House was constructed about 14 years ago of natural stone beneath a stone tiled roof and offers very well-presented and flexible accommodation laid out over two floors. The property is entered via a welcoming entrance hall which leads through to an elegant sitting room with a handsome fireplace with wood burning stove and doors that lead out onto the garden terrace which is perfect for al fresco dining. Also accessed from the hall is a well-proportioned dining room and a study. The kitchen, which can be accessed directly from the dining room, is very well fitted out with a range of wall and base units with granite work surfaces. Built-in appliances include a Rangemaster cooker with gas hob and electric ovens, fridge/freezer and dishwasher. The kitchen can accommodate a breakfast table and chairs. Adjacent to the kitchen is a useful utility room with direct access to the garage and garden. Also on the ground floor is a cosy study and a guest cloakroom.

    From the entrance hall stairs lead up to the landing from which is accessed the superb master suite with fitted wardrobes and en suite shower room. There are three further bedrooms, one with en suite shower room, and a family bathroom. The property benefits from an air filtration unit, which improves the air without the need to open any
    windows, and a centralised vacuum system.

    The professionally landscaped gardens are fully enclosed by a dwarf Cotswold stone wall with trellis above. The garden is mainly laid to lawn with well-stocked flower beds, specimen trees and a terrace. A path leads to the front of the house. There is a double garage at the rear of the property and parking for three cars, accessed via a shared drive.

    The property is extremely well-presented and is likely to appeal to those buyers looking for a family home or second home in the Cotswolds.
