About this property

  • Built in the early 1970's and transformed by the current owners, 4 Sycamore Close is one of four properties in a private cul-de-sac on the edge of this popular village. Set in an elevated position the property commands wonderful views over the landscaped garden and onto rolling countryside beyond.

    The property benefits from high ceilings, spacious accommodation, a generous plot extending to approximately 0.62 acres and is set in a sought after area, with access to a range of well-regarded schooling, good communication links and all the Cotswolds and surrounding area has to offer.

    A generous hallway with oak floorboards leads to a spacious, dual aspect sitting room with wood burner, doors on to the garden and bi-fold doors into an impressive dining room. The wonderfully light dining room with under floor heating, make the most of the spectacular views over the garden and rolling countryside beyond, with a wall of sliding doors onto the terrace. Steps lead up to the modern kitchen with fitted base and wall units with granite work surfaces, integrated appliances, including induction hob, ovens, full height fridge/freezer, hot water tap and ceramic floors. There is also an additional family room / study, utility room and WC.

    The first floor includes a principal bedroom with wonderful countryside views, in-built wardrobes and a stylish en suite shower room. The property benefits from planning permission to add a balcony to the bedroom. There are three further double bedrooms and a family bathroom.

    In front of the house is a landscaped garden area with plenty of off road parking. There is also a detached double garage with storage above and potential for conversion, subject to any necessary consents.

    To the side and rear of the property are further south facing landscaped gardens with three terraces providing private entertaining areas with views. Backing onto neighbouring paddock land, there is also a large lawn running down the hill to an orchard area and a vegetable / herb garden with raised beds. To the side of the house, and included within the property, is a track leading from the public highway to a further allotment area and providing access, via a public footpath, to miles of countryside walks.

I think the views from 4 Sycamore Close are truly impressive and the work carried out by the current vendors has transformed the property.
