Substantial Georgian family house showcasing a beautiful walled garden oasis which extends to about quarter of an acre. Beautifully presented, the 4 bedroom accommodation incorporates many traditional features, and sits at the Northernmost end of the High Street of this popular village.
Offering much more accommodation than first meets the eye, we find a dining room, lounge and study, kitchen, utility, cloakroom and cellar. On the first floor - a spacious master bedroom with ensuite bathroom, 3 further bedrooms and family bathroom. Much of the Grade II listed Georgian character is retained, although origins are known to date back further. Rooms at the back of the property enjoy splendid country views over the rear garden and up to the Cotswolds beyond. A gardener's paradise, the large back garden features many private areas to sit and soak up the vistas, and is richly stocked with a full range of flowers, shrubs, vegetables and trees.
