Vendors' thoughts: " We have lived in this wonderful family home for the last twenty five years and will cherish such amazing memories. We have hosted our children's weddings in the paddock and gardens, enjoyed fun filled Christmas's all together and many many more exceptional moments! It has been like discovering our very own 'Howard's End'. We shall miss this fabulous home immensely and hope it brings as much happiness to the new owners as it has to us and our family."
In a nutshell: A truly exceptional Cotswold home with generous proportions and gorgeous gardens and grounds.
Woodmancote Manor Farmhouse is a gorgeous Grade II Listed family home bursting with an abundance of period charm and character including open fireplaces, exposed oak beams, stone mullion windows, window seats, and flagstone floors. The house is constructed of Cotswold stone and is understood to be of mid- 17th Century origin with 20th Century additions. The house is exceptionally welcoming and generously proportioned throughout.
The layout lends itself extremely well to contemporary living with four well proportioned reception rooms on the ground floor, including the kitchen, all
flowing off the central hall. The kitchen is without doubt the heart of the house and a wonderful space in which to gather with family and friends, perfect for quiet chats over morning coffee sitting on the window seat, or animated family discussions over the kitchen island whilst cooking up a storm on the wonderful cream Aga.
Upstairs, the principle bedrooms are all located off the main landing and have been beautifully laid out to provide comfort and discreet storage. There are five bedrooms on the first floor, two of which are en suite and there is also a family bathroom. The second floor comprises a generously portioned suite with double bedroom, open plan bathroom and separate loo. The independent annex offers excellent ancillary accommodation with a bright and light open plan
kitchen/ dining/ sitting room, two bedrooms, one with en suite shower and the other with an en suite bathroom. A terrace and enclosed garden make this ideal for hosting family and friends.
The landscaped garden is predominantly laid to lawn, interspersed by herbaceous borders and seating areas. The garden has been thoughtfully designed to offer quiet corners, children’s play space and pretty colours at various times of the year. The paddock has been wonderful for hosting parties and weddings in the past and serves well as a football/ cricket pitch for the sport enthusiasts!
The driveway provides ample private parking.
