Vendor's thoughts: “Church House has been designed by renowned architects Verity and Beverley in an Arts and Crafts style and using natural stone. It looks and feels like a period village house, but has the benefit of all new components, making the house efficient in every way ,with no concerns if one is away from home for any length of time. Located in a quintessential Cotswold village, with a great pub, only 5 minutes from Cirencester, and 10 minutes to Kemble mainline station, making life all very easy. It has been such a fabulous home for us over the years and we will miss it very much.”
In a nutshell: A truly fabulous home with the very best of the Cotswolds on your doorstep!
Nestled along a quiet village lane, Church House is a fine example of elegance and comfort in a home. The property was designed by the architects Verity and Beverly of Tetbury to a traditional Cotswold style, incorporating the design features of the arts and craft era. Beautifully constructed using the renowned honey coloured Cotswold stone with dressed stone quoins, stone leaded mullioned windows and dressed stone chimneys under a natural stone tiled roof, this village house offers generous proportions and bright living spaces. Finished to a high standard, great attention to detail is apparent throughout.
The entrance doubles as an impressive dining room for more formal social gatherings with a superb wood burner, exposed beams and fabulous oak floor. The room was designed for entertaining and with dual aspect windows it overlooks the landscaped front and rear gardens. The bespoke Stroud Furniture Makers kitchen with its Hampole polished lime stone flooring and stunning cream Alpha cooker Is superb for everyday dining and offers ample storage and worktop space. The adjoining utility and cloakroom are great additions to the ground floor living space which can also be accessed via a separate entrance - essential for muddy wellies after those long country walks!
The sitting room is beautifully presented and features an impressive fireplace with wood burner. A door giving access to the garden comes in handy in the summer months. Across the hallway is the study which could equally make a superb play room for a family.
The first floor comprises the master bedroom with en suite bathroom, four further bedrooms and a family bathroom. The second floor consists of a bedroom with en suite bathroom and an attic room which could be used as additional accommodation. The rooms have been thoughtfully laid out to provide discreet and elegant storage.
