Vendor's thoughts: “It’s been a great family home - space, open views and walks. We’ve been so lucky - family get-togethers, al fresco dining, stargazing, close links to the buzzing village community. Our girls have grown up here, schooling in Cirencester, Cheltenham and Bourton-on-the-Water. And the village is so well connected - motorways, Fosse Way and airports north, south and east! Christmas reunions at the Seven Tuns, and midnight mass at the church. I shall miss the far reaching views and starry nights with nearly no light pollution.”
In a nutshell: A superb spacious family home with an enchanting garden and paddock.
Magnolia House is located on the outskirts of Chedworth, a stunning village in the heart of The Cotswolds. This thriving village community is home to a beautiful church, village hall, a popular pub which is within walking distance, the highly-regarded St Andrews Church of England Primary School, a very handy and well stocked farm shop, and offers a wide range of clubs and societies.
Conveniently located, the property is close to both Cirencester and Cheltenham.
