Shipton Oliffe is a delightful Cotswold village situated high up in the Cotswolds and surrounded by beautiful rolling countryside. The name Shipton, meaning "sheep farmstead", indicates that sheep farming occurred here long before the Norman invasion and the nearby market town of Northleach was one of the most important wool towns in the Middle Ages. The Domesday Book refers to two manors, Oliffe and Solers, each with its own Church and within the village is the Church of St Oswald.
The village is extremely accessible having the A40 within a mile of the property. Indeed the A40 provides good east/west access to London, Cheltenham and the M5, whilst the nearby Fosseway gives excellent north/south access. Also nearby is the village of Andoversford which offers a primary school and The Royal Oak Inn. The River Coln, just a tiny stream at this point, flows through the village over two fords and innumerable little water splashes, creating ornamental lakes in private properties.
The Regency town of Cheltenham is about seven miles away and retains many of its original features such as spacious squares, terraces, promenades and beautifully laid out formal gardens. Apart from providing exceptional shopping and schooling facilities, it also hosts several major festivals each year including those devoted to music, science and literature. Local recreational facilities include golf at Naunton Downs and Severn Springs and sailing at the Cotswold Water Park. As one would expect, there are many pleasant footpaths that offer extensive walking over the surrounding countryside.
Valley View sits within an AONB and occupies an exceptional position being on the edge of the village benefitting from unobstructed views out onto glorious Cotswold countryside.
Valley View was built in 1993 and is an easily managed home which has been considerably improved by the present owner. Indeed the property is beautifully presented and appointed to a very high standard throughout. The bathroom and en suite shower has recently been replaced and the kitchen is filled with high quality appliances including a Neff induction hob and Elica extractor fan, Neff double oven, Bosch dishwasher and granite work surfaces. Also downstairs there is an Italian Polished porcelain floor and in the sitting room an Elgin and Hall fireplace with marble slips and hearth. There is also a marble floor in the cloakroom.
The rooms are well laid out and include a well proportioned sitting room which opens out into the garden and enjoys the views. The dining room also benefits from direct access to the garden and is open to the hall. To the front of the house is the study which could be used as an occasional fourth bedroom if required. The kitchen is extremely well fitted and off the breakfast room is the utility room which also has access to the garden. On the first floor there are three double bedrooms with plenty of wardrobe space and the newly equipped family bathroom and en suite shower room. There are also linen cupboards and under eaves storage space. Gas fired central heating is complemented by sealed unit glazed windows.
The property is approached via a gravelled driveway which leads to a parking area, with room for several cars, to the front of the double garage which has electronically controlled doors. There is a front area of garden although the main garden is to the rear. Attractively laid out they comprise a profusion of shrubs and plants as well as lawn bordered by flower beds, silver birch trees and a sun terrace. There is also a more formal area with triangular box hedging and a raised ornamental pond. There is a high degree of privacy and the property benefits from outside lighting.
Square Footage: 1,939 sq ft
