Full description

A spacious (2400 sq ft), well designed and beautifully presented five bedroom detached house with double garage and driveway parking for several vehicles, in a prime, non-estate location on a quiet and pretty lane in the old part of this popular, well-served village.

Mickleton - This pretty and very popular village on the edge of the Cotswolds boasts its own Primary School, two churches and two community halls each hosting a variety of activities. There is a well stocked General Store, a Post Office, a high quality butchers, two public houses and The Three Ways Hotel famous for its "Pudding Club". The village has excellent local transport facilities and Stratford upon Avon with its cultural, social and shopping facilities is 8 miles to the north east. Junction 15 of the M40 is within half an hour's drive giving swift access to the motorway network, National Exhibition Centre and all the major commercial centres of the West Midlands. Mickleton is in the catchment area for Chipping Campden secondary school.

Rusland - Situated in Back Lane, on the edge of the village's Conservation Area but just outside it, Rusland is one of a small number of substantial family homes which mingle with other charming period and modern properties in this quiet road. The property backs onto the playing fields behind the Primary School, and so enjoys an open outlook to the rear which is unlikely to change.

Set back from the road with ample parking to the front, the property is approached over a block paved drive and the porch opens to a bright hallway from which the stairs rise to the first floor, having useful storage beneath. Off the hallway is a neat cloakroom with wc and small wash hand basin.

The main sitting room extends from the front to the rear of the property and benefits from a large window to the front and sliding glazed doors to the rear which lead into the conservatory, bringing in plenty of natural light. There is an attractive oak fireplace housing the Morso Badger multi-fuel stove which provides a warm and welcoming focal point for this generously proportioned room, ideal both for family living and for entertaining.

The kitchen is very much at the heart of the home, open to both the dining area and the garden room and so gaining plenty of natural light. Fitted with a comprehensive range of cream base and wall units, some with oak worktops and some with granite, a great deal of thought has been given to the functional areas. In addition to the three oven gas Aga cooker with hood above, there is a separate built in AEG oven and a halogen hob, a Schock granite sink and integrated Bosch dishwasher.

The adjoining utility room has an inset Franke double bowl stainless steel sink, space for a washing machine and tumble dryer, and a useful range of fitted floor and wall cabinets. A half glazed door gives access to the side of the property and to the gardens and garage.

A most attractive vaulted garden room has been added to the rear of the property, leading off the kitchen; with triple aspect glazing and remote control Velux roof lights, and a feature wood burning stove, this is truly a room for all seasons and the perfect informal family room.

The dining area, also open to the kitchen, has French doors opening to the rear patio and, like the kitchen and garden room, has smart and easily maintained tiled flooring.

To the first floor the five bedrooms provide excellent accommodation for family and/or guests, all opening from the main landing which is a large, bright area having a window to the front of the property.

The master bedroom, which is fitted with ceiling height wardrobes, incorporates an en suite shower room having a large corner shower enclosure with Grohe 'rain' shower, low level wc and wash hand basin set into vanity unit. There is also a chrome heated ladder radiator.

The second bedroom, set above the garage with charming window seats set below dormer windows overlooking the front gardens, is an exceptionally spacious double.

There are three further bedrooms to the rear of the property, all of a good size, one of which is currently used as a dressing room having ceiling height mirrored wardrobes.

The family bathroom is fitted with both bath and shower, the latter being a double unit with Grohe 'rain' shower. The white five -piece suite also includes low level wc, wash hand basin set in vanity unit, and bidet.

The layout and generous accommodation on both floors really lends itself to the needs of a growing family, allowing flexibility and providing ample room for 'gatherings' without compromising on privacy and study space. The large roof space, which is insulated but not currently boarded, would lend itself to conversion for the provision of additional accommodation subject to the usual planning consents, offering potential to add further value to this already highly desirable property.

Outside - To the front of the house there is a large block paved drive and turning area allowing off road parking for several cars in addition to the double garage. The surrounding lawn has attractive shrubs and trees which screen the property from the quiet lane; this marks the boundary of the Conservation Area and so enjoys protection from further development.

The garden to the rear of the property is mainly laid to lawn with an area of patio accessed from both the conservatory and dining room and a wonderful selection of attractive shrubs and planted borders. The garden room also enjoys this pretty outlook.
