Vendor's thoughts: " Pippins is a individual house with amazing views across the countryside. Each season brings something new to see with the changing colours of the landscape. Pippins is in a great position within Chedworth village, walking distance from St Andrews School, the Church, the farm shop, the village hall and The 7 Tuns public house. The garden offers privacy with great entertaining space on several levels. Breakfasts and BBQs on the patio. Evening drinks on the balcony. The top of the garden is where the old railway line used to be. It is a lovely flat area where we have held birthday parties, camped out under the stars, and also doubles as a games field for any budding footballers! In the winter you can cosy up by the Clearview wood burning stove and gaze out at the fabulous views. We have recently gained planning permission to extend and further update Pippins. The house and plot offers lots of potential for the next owners to put their own stamp on it. Pippins has a been our much loved family home for the last 8 years. We will miss it.’

Pippins is a superb village house and has been a loving family home for many years. Occupying an elevated position in Middle Chedworth, its exceptional and spacious garden offers sensational views across the valley.
Already a generous family home, planning permission has been granted to transform the exterior of the house and greatly extend and modify the layout of the living space. There is therefore a great potential to transform this superbly located home into a contemporary dwelling should one choose to do so. A rare opportunity!
The living accommodation, mainly on the first floor, is laid out to allow an abundance of natural light throughout, in particular in the sitting room which has large windows overlooking the sweeping valley and French doors leading to the balcony terrace, the perfect spot for coffee on a sunny morning. The Clearview wood burner is a wonderful addition in the colder months and makes this a fabulous cosy room to relax in.
The family bathroom and four double bedrooms, including a master suite with its en suite bathroom, are laid out over the ground and first floors. Each room is spacious and bright with views over the valley or the garden.
A spacious attic area provides excellent storage and has been previously used as a home office.
The open dining area and well-equipped kitchen lead through to the conservatory and terrace area beyond.
Outside, the garden has been wonderfully designed to allow for privacy and space for entertaining. Surrounded by herbaceous borders and predominantly laid to lawn, it is a real haven of peace and tranquillity with exceptional country views and generous proportions.
A handy green house is ideal for the garden enthusiast and the garden sheds are ideal for storing garden tools.
The driveway offers ample parking alongside the integral garage.
