Full description

Tenure: Freehold

The River House is a beautifully presented house which was originally a barn that was converted in 1984 to two holiday cottages. The current vendors combined their own property adjacent to the two cottages converting it to one main house in 2004/5 and adding the garden room in 2010. It is built of Cotswold stone under a stone roof with the later addition of a stunning garden room to the rear overlooking the fantastic gardens.

The house is blessed with high ceilings and an abundance of character and charm. The front door opens onto an atrium hall with full floor to ceiling windows flooding the hall with natural light. The focal point of the house is the open plan kitchen/dining room with adjoining living room and garden room. This family area is wonderful space to relax and enjoy the full views of the stunning gardens. The dual aspect living room has impressive beamed ceilings, surround sound audio, stone fireplace with wood burner, French doors leading out on to the patio and a feature spiral staircase leading down to a large cellar which the current vendors use as a games room.

The kitchen has a wealth of fitted units together with butler sinks and an island with granite worktops which is adjacent to a generous sized utility room. The first floor has two good sized bedrooms all of which have en-suite bathrooms and fitted cupboards.

On the second floor there are a further three bedrooms, two of which have fitted wardrobes, one with an ensuite and a separate family shower room.

The River House occupies a magic setting on the edge of the village with sweeping lawns down to the River Coln. Quenington is a pretty and sought after village that lies in the popular Coln Valley, away from main roads. The village, mentioned in the Doomsday Book, is within a designated Conservation Area and much of the surrounding countryside belongs to the Williamstrip Estate and the Ernest Cook Trust. The continuity of ownership of these has done much to protect and enhance the area's unspoilt appearance. The village pub (The Keepers Arms), is the social centre with restaurant and real ales. There is a village shop with Post
Office at Coln St Aldwyns, less than a mile away, and Fairford (2 miles) has a number of shops and services. Cirencester, about 8 miles, has good everyday shopping facilities.

The lovely village of Bibury is just three miles away.

The main regional centres include Cheltenham, Oxford and Swindon, all of which are within daily commuting distance. The village is within easy reach of the M4 as well as the M5 and there are direct rail services to London from Kemble and Swindon Stations.

The Cotswold Water Parks are close by and there are a number of golf courses in the vicinity. The Coln Valley provides some the loveliest walks in the Cotswolds. There is a good choice of State and Private schools in the vicinity including Hatherop Castle School and a village primary school in Hatherop.

Double gates open on to a sizeable block paved driveway with parking for a number of cars. The stunning garden is franked by a Cotswold stone wall and interspersed by well stocked flower beds and fruit trees.
The stone edged lawn leads down to good sized stretch of the River Coln at the bottom of the garden where there are fishing rights. There is also a double garage and store within the courtyard to the west.
