Property description

Steep House is a deceptively generous family house providing a clever mix of period charm and modern technology. This spectacular Cotswold stone residence enjoys an elevated position making the most of its southerly facing aspect and valley views below. It has a truly rural feel, but enjoys a convenient position with many local amenities. The property has been transformed during the recent extensive and meticulous renovation and is presented in excellent order. The renovations also included many cutting edge features and high end finishes including solar panels, Lutron mood lighting, integrated music system and a bespoke kitchen. This multi-level home offers around 5000 . Of internal accommodation with an adaptable layout and options for self contained accommodation. The spacious and welcoming hallway enjoys underfloor heating and provides access to the two ground floor rooms and cloakroom. The spectacular 35 ft. Drawing room is an excellent entertaining space and is bathed in light due to its double aspect and the floor to ceiling windows. It has a large inglenook fire complete with a Clearview wood burner and gives you the first glimpses of the excellent valley views. A further feature, which is enjoyed in many rooms, is the discreetly placed bespoke cabinetry. The drawing room has a ‘hidden wine cellar’ behind the bookshelves. The adjacent sitting room is one of the oldest parts of the original house and has a plethora of period features including stripped wood beams, inglenook fireplace and deep bayed mullioned windows, as well as further bespoke cabinetry making this an excellent alternative study and snug. Rising the oak staircase, the spacious landing also serves as a informal sitting room and leads onto the beautifully finished ‘heart of the home’, the kitchen/breakfast room. This incredible room formed part of the extension and enjoys an oak trussed vaulted ceiling and a bespoke kitchen. It is split into two zones, kitchen and dining room. The kitchen has a large central preparation island, Mercury Thermastone cooking range with mains gas top, an exceptional triple Gaggenau fridge/freezer complete with wine cooler unit, a steam oven and mix of solid wood and Sodalite worktop. Double doors allow excellent flow from the breakfast room onto the rear terrace and landscaped garden. The remainder of this floor has an opulent master suite, complete with vaulted ceiling bedroom and balcony, a fitted dressing room and an en suite bathroom. There are 2 further bedrooms and a family bathroom on this level. The top floor could be utilised in a number of ways including overflow accommodation, twin studies or as a self contained floor. It is currently laid out as three further bedrooms, a family bathroom, a library and a snug doubling as a playroom with a fourth mezzanine bedroom. This floor can also be subdivided into two sections due to its twin staircases and central door. There is generous storage throughout. Property Ref: STR150422

There is a raised summerhouse to further enjoy the late sunny views but the garden has been also designed for family use with controlled, fenced areas ideal for young children and a tree house.
