Location

Oaksey Court is perfectly situated at the edge of Oaksey village, a stunning and thriving community with everything one would hope for in a village. Welcoming and beautiful, this Cotswold village is home to a primary school, post office and shop, and a playing field with children’s play areas. The Wheatsheaf inn is a popular gastro pub and the ideal spot to finish those long country walks along the village’s foot paths. Oaksey has a wonderful community spirit, evident from the wide range of clubs and societies on offer including thriving Cricket and Football clubs.

Kemble, 3 miles away, offers a direct and regular train service to London Paddington, making London and other hubs readily accessible.

The historic towns of Malmesbury and Tetbury are a short drive away and with their selection of lovely boutiques and cafes, offer everyday shopping facilities and schooling, whilst more extensive shopping can be found in the larger towns of Bath or nearby Cirencester.

Known as the “Capital of the Cotswolds”, Cirencester, 8 miles north east, is a hub of vibrant cultural life known for its beautiful limestone townhouses, exciting independent shops, restaurants, cafes and twice weekly markets. Sporting opportunities are abundant.

Communications in the area are excellent with high-speed internet and easy access to major hubs and international airports in the South West, the Midlands and London, via the M4 and M5 motorways and well connected direct train services.

The area offers an excellent choice of schooling and includes public, state and grammar schools such as Oaksey Primary School, Beaudesert Park, Powells, Westonbirt, Malmesbury Church of England School, St Mary’s, St Margaret’s, Cheltenham College, Marlborough College and Cheltenham Ladies College, to name a few.

Description

Oaksey Court is a fine example of a stunning edge of village Country House. Elegantly positioned overlooking 5 acres of gardens and paddocks, this is a beautiful home, thoughtfully designed with style and comfort.

The attention to detail is evident upon entering the house with the beautiful Jim Lawrence light pendant and the elegant furnishings which enhance the height of the hallway.
The study to the right of the front door is bright and light with two large sash windows, oak floor, an original open fireplace and a large bespoke bookcase.
The sitting room across the hallway is a comfortable family room with a relaxed feel and, with its fabulous wood burner and large windows, is superbly warm and light.
The room leads through to the impressive kitchen/breakfast room with exposed original oak beams and elm floor. A striking Smallbone kitchen features a teal centre unit with quartz work surface in the centre of the room, framed by cupboards at one end and a stunning pewter double Aga with companion electric cooker and surrounding cupboards at the other. The teal centre unit and the Farrow and Ball Drop Cloth cupboards, along with three elegant Jim Lawrence light pendants, are a superb choice of colours and accessories to accentuate the rooms character, blending contemporary design with period features.
Spacious laundry and boot rooms are discreetly positioned off the kitchen, both with under floor heating and easy access to the garden and driveway.
The south facing dining room to the rear of the house overlooks the magnificent garden and, with the large sash and bay windows and open fireplace, is perfect for hosting family and friends. The hand printed wall paper is an exceptional detail which adds to the rooms charm and character.
Across the hallway, the drawing room offers a more formal living space, beautifully decorated to highlight the large sash windows overlooking the garden. The open fireplace provides warmth in the colder months.
The lower ground floor houses a wine store and a spacious gym.

The main bedrooms are on the first floor. The master suite comprises a spacious master bedroom with two large sash windows, an adjoining dressing room with bespoke Heritage Wardrobe Company cupboards and a substantial en suite bathroom with freestanding roll top bath, separate double shower and twin washbasins. Three further double bedrooms and two bathrooms share this floor and can be accessed by both the front and rear staircases. The second floor has two further double bedrooms with exposed oak beams.

The garden is an oasis of peace and tranquillity. The facades of the house are adorned with colourful climbing roses and an exquisite clover leaf shaped pond stands proud at the forefront of the terrace. Surrounded by rose bushes and well-tended herbaceous borders, the outside dining area overlooks the garden and paddocks. A tennis court beyond the flowerbeds and lawn area overlooks the adjacent field. The attractive garden, partly walled, wraps round the house providing a haven of privacy.

Various outbuildings offer plenty of scope for further accommodation or a variety of uses. There is current planning permission to convert the large barn and adjoining stables to flexible living accommodation.

Vendor's thoughts: "The house has been a wonderful family home and we have all enjoyed living here immensely. We’ve loved having the opportunity to bring it back to life, filling it with friends and family and adding the fabulous garden. There is nothing better than watching the swallows swoop over our heads on a summer’s evening or a big family Christmas in this house. We are going to struggle to find another home to rival this one!"

In a nutshell: Perfect edge of village location, beautifully laid out living space, stunning gardens.

Council Tax Band H & EPC rating F.

Tenure: Freehold.

Services: Mains water, electricity and drainage. Oil-fired central heating, partial electric underfloor heating.
