Vendor's thoughts: "Rivendell has been a lovely family home for us for over 20 years. We brought up our children here, but now they have moved on, it is time we did too! Poulton is set in beautiful countryside & is a friendly, thriving village with an excellent pub, a shop & village hall with plenty of social activities. It is with some trepidation and after many changes of heart that we have finally taken the plunge to leave what has become a very special home to us."
In a nutshell: A superb Cotswold home, with beautiful period features, in a fabulous village!
Rivendell is a stunning period house in the heart of The Cotswolds. Beautifully proportioned and a family home for many years, this is a superb Cotswold dwelling full of charm and character.
The entrance hall with original tiled floor leads to the sitting room with exquisite parquet floor and wood burner. This is the perfect spot to relax and unwind after a long day.
The kitchen/breakfast room is superb for informal dining and entertaining, whereas the separate dining room offers more formal seating and exhibits stunning period features with wood floors and a lovely fireplace with wood burner, super for the colder months of the year.
The garden room, with underfloor heating, overlooks the garden and driveway and is a wonderful spot for relaxing and entertaining all year round.
The ground floor also comprises a study which is ideal as a home office and a handy cloakroom/ utility room.
Upstairs there are four bedrooms, one with an en suite bathrooms, a further bathroom and a dressing room. The rooms are bright and light and are generously proportioned, offering ample storage.
Outside the garden is partly laid to lawn, interspersed with herbaceous borders, and partly home to a vegetable garden with a green house and a useful outbuilding for storing garden tools. The driveway, to the front and side of the house, allows for plenty of off-road parking and extends to the rear, leading to a double garage with a cloak room and a room above. This could potentially be converted into ancillary accommodation subject to the necessary consents.
