Vendors' thoughts: "A very much loved, spacious family home in the heart of this quintessential Cotswold village. Quenington has a thriving community with the renowned Sculpture Show and many other village activities, many of which we have been involved with over the years. Our family have enjoyed many wonderful times here over the past 12 years and will take away very happy memories. We will certainly miss the good friends we have made, the beautiful walks along the river Coln and the 5 minute stroll to the village shop, and of course the pub! Both my children attended the wonderful Hatherop Primary School and at the school gate we made life long friends. Quenington really is a very, very special village and we will be sad to say good bye."
In a nutshell: A fabulous family home in a very special village.
Beechdown is a wonderful family home in the heart of the stunning quintessential Cotswold village of Quenington, superbly renovated and extended to create bright and light living spaces.
The ground floor living space has been carefully thought out to allow for open plan indoor/ outdoor living in the kitchen/ breakfast room and for quiet relaxation in the adjacent living and sitting rooms which interconnect, ideal when hosting dinner parties and entertaining family and friends. The living room with fireplace and wood burner is an elegant room and planning permission has been granted to extend the adjoining sitting room with French doors leading to the garden.
The kitchen is clearly the heart of the house with bi-folding doors leading to the garden and bespoke units provide ample storage and worktop space. The larder is an added bonus for the cooking enthusiast! Electric underfloor heating provides great warmth in the cooler months.
There is also a handy utility room off the entrance hall which doubles as a cloakroom.
The first floor has four bright and light bedrooms, two with en suite bathrooms, and a family bathroom. All the rooms have been thoughtfully laid out to provide ample bespoke and discreet storage.
Outside, the garden is a haven of peace and tranquillity. Beautifully laid out, it is predominantly laid to lawn, interspersed with colourful herbaceous borders. The terrace overlooking the garden is a wonderful spot for al fresco dining and entertaining in the summer months.
Externally one side of the double garages has been converted to create a home office with phone connection and electric heating, alongside the existing garage. Additional useful storage is above the garage. The driveway offers plenty of parking.
