Property Description

The Yew is a substantial and beautifully laid out Cotswold home superbly positioned in a quiet spot in the village of Down Ampney. The living spaces are bright and light throughout and flow seamlessly. Built two decades ago, the property has been significantly extended and enhanced over the years to create a beautiful contemporary Cotswold home.

The entrance hall leads to the main reception rooms.

The kitchen/ dining room is a fabulous space in which to entertain family and friends. The open plan aspect lends itself beautifully to hosting larger gatherings and works equally well for everyday family living. The kitchen is well equipped with all the necessary mod cons and offers plenty of storage and work top space. The rear door opens onto the terrace for summer dining. The dining area overlooks the front garden and driveway and with dual aspect windows this is a lovely room in which to entertain.

The adjacent utility room offers further storage and keeps all the washing at bay!

The snug, which overlooks the rear garden, is ideal for movie nights and quiet moments.

Further along the hallway is the living room which interconnects with the garden room. Both rooms are fabulously bright and generously proportioned offering a great sense of space. French doors in the garden room allow for a seamless transition from indoor to outdoor living in the summer months and the wood burner in the living room makes this a really cosy room in the winter.

The first floor comprises the master suite with en suite shower room and dressing area. There are four further bedrooms, two being en suite, and a family shower room. All the rooms have a wonderful outlook onto the garden and village and there is ample discreet storage. The rooms are generously proportioned and have a very welcoming feel to them.

Above the garage, currently used as a home office, is a one-bedroom annex with en suite shower room.

Outside, the enclosed garden is a stunning feature of the house. Predominantly laid to lawn, interspersed with mature trees and herbaceous borders, it is a haven of peace and tranquillity in the heart of the village. The terrace is ideal for al fresco dining and summer BBQs.

The gated gravel driveway offers ample parking alongside the triple garage.
