About this property

  • The Orchard House is an impressive Grade II listed detached house which has undergone substantial renovations by the current owners, providing beautifully presented, versatile accommodation.

    The impressive front door leads into a spacious entrance hall, off which lies the drawing room with central fireplace and wood burning stove. To the other side of the hallway is another double aspect room, currently used as a second sitting room and study but which could have a number of uses. This too has a central open fireplace. No doubt the heart of the home is the kitchen/dining room/snug with original flagstone floor exposed beams and original stone walls. The kitchen is fitted with an impressive range of units incorporating integrated appliances including dishwasher, double oven, fridge freezer, wine fridge and a four oven AGA with a central island. From the kitchen a door leads through to the rear hall with cloakroom off and then outside to a further garden and dining terrace.

    The first floor accommodation continues to feel light and spacious with two double bedrooms, one with en-suite shower room and a family bathroom with central raised free standing bath. A useful laundry room is also situated on the first floor. To the second floor are two further double bedrooms. All of the bedroom windows provide wonderful far-reaching views.

    The Orchard House is approached through double gates along a sweeping driveway to the side of the property. Here can be found a useful range of outbuildings currently providing two garages and a store. This could easily be converted to provide a home office or additional accommodation if needed. There is also a shepherds hut (available by separate negotiation).

    The gardens are surrounded by beech hedges and Cotswold stone walls offering a high degree of privacy with various seating areas to sit and enjoy the gardens at various times of the day. A gate within the main Cotswold stone front wall also provides additional access to the front door from a gravelled pathway.
