Vendors' thoughts: : "Westerleigh is such a happy family home that offered the kids a haven from university and London long after they had ‘left’ home. It will be hard to leave but all good things come to an end and it is time for another family to make happy memories here. It is light and bright home for all seasons unlike many older Cotswold stone properties. Also, not being listed, like our last house, we were able to extend it to suit our growing family needs. We also bought the paddock at the back of the house as soon as we were offered the opportunity and used the space for croquet as well as being a place for the grandkids to come out of the city to explore and play make believe. The community is also something that makes this a home unlike any other village we have lived in. The neighbours really care and support each other. This came into its own during the pandemic but is also observable in the village fetes and weekly coffee mornings. The community is also very varied and all the better for it. If you are looking for a happy family home that you can make you own, with private space but in the heart of a vibrant and caring community this might be the house for you..."

In a nutshell: A superb village house and clearly a very happy home!
