Charming period village house in a sought after North Cotswold village.

About this property

  • The Well House is built of mellow Cotswold stone under a reconstituted stone roof. The property is typical of the local vernacular style and was formerly several cottages converted to create a single dwelling and subsequently extended to provide further living accommodation. The Well House is beautifully presented and retains all the usual period features associated with properties of this type and age. Of particular note is the well proportioned south facing sitting room with an impressive inglenook fireplace. In addition there are three other charming reception rooms creating a versatile layout making the property ideally suited for those who like to entertain.

    From the snug a flight of stone steps provides access to a superb vaulted kitchen/dining room with fully glazed double doors leading out to the garden terrace. The exceptional hand-built kitchen is fitted with a range of hand-painted units with matt granite work surfaces and incorporates a blue enamelled Aga. The dining area incorporates bespoke fitted cabinets, again hand-painted. Also on the ground floor is the utility room and guest cloakroom, both of which are well appointed.

    From the entrance hall a dog leg staircase provides access to the first floor landing with useful study area. From here steps lead up to the inner landing which provides access to the bedroom accommodation which is set out over the first and second floors and benefits from attractive elevated views and superb bathroom suites. The principal bedroom has a dressing room which in turn links to a luxurious bathroom. Further potential exists within the existing stone outbuildings that lie to the west of the house and these could, subject to planning, be incorporated to provide further living accommodation. In addition on the north side of the property lies a single garage built of natural stone beneath a pitched and tiled roof and incorporates a fine quatrefoil window.

    The gardens and grounds are a particular feature and surround the house on three sides. The areas closest to the property are beautifully planted out in an English country cottage style. The upper part of the garden benefits from an elevated seating area overlooking part of the village and adjoining countryside towards the Evenlode Valley.
