    About this property

    • Originating from the seventeenth century with later additions, Well House is a classical Cotswold village house with a wealth of period features. The sale of the property presents a very special opportunity to purchase a house with great integrity and traditional charm.

      The beautifully presented accommodation is laid out over three floors. Three exceptional and well-proportioned reception rooms are accessed from a welcoming entrance hall. The dual aspect drawing room is particularly impressive with oak panelling to the walls and a handsome fireplace. The kitchen is the heart of the home and is fitted with an excellent range of painted cabinets with integrated appliances and a magnificent Aga. An island unit provides further preparation space. There is plenty of room for a good sized table and chairs from which to enjoy views over the garden.
      Conveniently accessed directly from the kitchen is a laundry room, boot room and walk in pantry. A cloakroom completes the ground floor accommodation.

      An elegant turned staircase leads from the entrance hall to the first floor bedroom accommodation. The principal bedroom is charming and benefits from a large bathroom and dressing room. In addition there is a guest bedroom suite, two further bedrooms and a family bathroom. A lift connects the entrance hall to the first floor landing. On the second floor are two further bedrooms, one of which is en suite.

      Also on the first floor is a one bedroom self-contained flat which is accessed from a secondary hall on the ground floor. This is currently used as the housekeeper's flat.

      The property is approached through electric gates which leads to ample parking for several cars and the double garage. The well-maintained gardens are south-facing and comprise areas of lawn with mature well-stocked beds, ornamental specimen trees, paved terracing, green house and summer house.
