Description

Willowside Farm is a beautifully appointed and long standing family home for the current owners and is believed to date back to the 17th Century. The property saw a substantial two storey extension and full renovation some 10 years ago. This has provided more comfortable living with full bespoke wooden double glazed windows, underfloor heating over all three floors and further modern facilities to enhance day to day living and create the unique and exceptional country house. The architectural vision of the extension was to allow the property to enjoy more of the stunning setting. The setting is totally unique with the River Coln meandering through the land giving a wonderful point of interest.

Situated in the heart of this picturesque Cotswold village the property is approached via the double electric gates which open onto the low maintenance aqua grid gravelled driveway where you will find parking for numerous cars with overflow parking through the garden and into in a small paddock in front of the house.

During the extension and renovation it allowed the owners to further enhance the flow and usability of the former farmhouse and this is in evident in the spacious entrance hall and adjacent drawing room. This, as with so many of the rooms, is a triple aspect room with double opening doors to the rear west-facing patio. From here you can drink in the beautiful views over the grounds of the property with Withington church in the distance. The adjacent dining room provides the link between the formal reception rooms and the large open plan kitchen/dining room at the rear. During the re-design the focus was on the kitchen/breakfast room in order to provide an all-day family space. The breakfast area has a set of double opening doors leading on to the rear terrace. The kitchen takes centre stage with a range of solid wood units complemented by a Silestone worktop and four oven electric aga. The living end is centred round the wood burning stove creating a more cosy and intimate space. The rear utility room acts as a back-up secondary kitchen. There are twin studies, boot room and cloakroom facilities which conclude the ground floor. The property benefits from external power and water points. Wifi is provided by both Gigaclear cable and Plusnet.
Rising to the first floor the opulent master suite has 'his and hers' bath and en suite facilities and integrated storage. There are three further bedrooms, all with en suite bathrooms, on this floor as well as a useful first floor utility room which could act as over-flow accommodation. The second floor was designed as an independent suite with bedroom, sitting room, shower room and would make an ideal space for teenagers or live in help.

Situation
Withington is a quintessential Cotswold village containing a selection of traditional Cotswold stone houses and surrounded by beautiful rolling countryside. The village has a pub 'The Mill Inn', a well-regarded primary school and a church. It is much loved due to its peaceful location and convenient access to Cheltenham, with its excellent schooling, the Roman town of Cirencester and Oxford and London beyond. The area is popular with those looking for first class education in both Cheltenham and Gloucester. The Chiltern railway line runs a regular train service from Oxford Parkway to London Marylebone giving convenient access for London based meetings the theatre or dinner.
It is also famed for its sporting pursuits, with convenient access to Ian Colley's shooting school, Kim Bailey racing stables, racing at Cheltenham, polo at Cirencester, hunting with the Cotswold hunt and a range of sporting facilities at the Cotswold Water Park.

Outside
During the renovation the formal gardens were landscaped to include a beautiful chipped driveway accessed by the electric gates which in turn leads to a bespoke crafted cast iron gate giving access to the fields. The gardens then wrap around the house with an extensive patio area from which to fully enjoy the stunning setting. There are various all-day round seating areas with beautiful views from morning coffee to late evening drinks watching the sun-set. The gardens are surrounded by estate fencing or dry stone. This benefits from both outdoor lighting and external power points. Gates lead from here on to pasture land.
