Vendor's thoughts: "We have spent over 10 years at The Old Bakery. We originally bought the house because we loved the setting and we could see the house's potential for us and our young family. Connecting the two buildings around 5 years ago really transformed the space available but the house retains a warm and cosy feel. In the Winter months, we love to sit by the fire while in the Summer the garden and meadow are brilliant spaces for the children to roam, play and explore. We have had many happy times in the house and garden and our children have had the perfect setting in which to grow up."
In a nutshell: Period charm meets contemporary living in the heart of one of the Cotswolds finest villages.
The Old Bakery is an exceptional village house, lovingly restored and refurbished to create a beautiful and light family home. The entrance hall leads into a glass and oak framed walkway which connects the former Old Bakery annexe to the main house, blending original character features with versatile contemporary living.
The spacious open plan kitchen/dining room with its bespoke timber units, granite countertops and window seats is the heart of the house. The cream electric Aga and underfloor heating make this a warm and welcoming room and the adjoining family room, with its inglenook fireplace and wood burner, make this an ideal space for entertaining. Large windows overlook the garden and bi-folding doors lead to the terrace, allowing for indoor/outdoor living in the warmer months. Across the terracotta tiled hallway is a snug with an open inglenook fireplace with wood burning stove and exposed beams. A useful cloakroom/utility room is discreetly positioned at the bottom of the stairs.
The first floor has two double bedrooms, one with en suite shower room. Both bedrooms are full of charm and character with exposed beams and delightful window seats. Two further double bedrooms with exposed beams and skylights can be found on the second floor with a separate bathroom.
The master suite is found in The Old Bakery annexe which is a versatile space and can be incorporated as such with the main part of the house, or closed off for guests. Beautifully renovated with wooden floorboards, the sitting room is a peaceful and bright space with a superb wood burner. A wonderful hand crafted staircase leads up to the open plan master suite with bath and dressing area. The annexe also has a separate shower room on the ground floor.
The generous garden, orchard area and small paddock give this home an exceptional feeling of space. The garden is predominantly laid to lawn, with herbaceous borders, vegetable boxes and a small stream. A discreetly positioned play area and terrace are nestled to the side of the garden near the green house.
