Vendors' thoughts: "Well Ground House is special for us because it combines a true sense of being in the countryside with modern and effortless living. We fell in love with that all that it offers straight away. The family and visiting friends all love the mix of modern and traditional which blend well. The views from the bedrooms over the fields are breathtaking; it really brings a smile whatever the season! Having a great school, village shop and mainline train station all nearby means we can effortlessly divide our time between the countryside and London. The kids love exploring and discovering things in the garden as well as planting their own vegetables. Being in a hamlet of just five other homes is reassuring, though everyone's privacy is respected. Well Ground House holds many happy memories and we''ll be sorry to say 'goodbye' to such a special."
In a nutshell: Old meets new in a fabulous way!
Well Ground House is a beautiful country home where contemporary design, in the form of a cedar clad extension, fuses with traditional Cotswold style. Elegantly renovated with attention to detail, whilst maintaining fabulous original features, this is a spacious and bright home.
The reception rooms flow off the inner hall whichis welcoming with an abundance of natural light.

The adjacent utility/ boot room, with access to the garden, is perfect for muddy wellies after a long country walk.
The family room with its open fireplace, wood burner and oak floor is generously proportioned and a wonderful spot to kick back and relax.
