Full descriptionA superbly situated and very well appointed character country residence set in about 6 acres with stabling and paddock, enjoying outstanding views over the North Cotswold Hills
Situation - The property enjoys an outstanding elevated position at Ditchford Hill an exclusive small hamlet of mainly period homes located off the historic Fosse Way (A429) on the Gloucestershire/Warwickshire border, enjoying superb southerly countryside views over the North Cotswold Hills. The renowned small market towns of both Moreton in Marsh and Shipston on Stour are about three miles distant, offering a wide range of shopping, social and recreational amenities, and with mainline train services from Moreton station to London Paddington in about an hour and a half. The larger centres of Stratford-upon-Avon (13 miles), Cheltenham (25 miles) and Oxford (28 miles) provide a greater choice of facilities, as well a variety of schooling. Birmingham International Airport is about 35 miles away whilst access to the M40 motorway is from Oxford (J8) and Banbury (J11), with the M5 at Cheltenham (J11) and Tewkesbury (J9) readily accessible.
The Limes - Is an outstanding detached country house, imaginatively converted in the mid 1990s from former early Victorian brick built farm buildings in the grounds of a Georgian listed farmhouse. The very well appointed and deceptively spacious accommodation enjoys fine views from most of the rooms and, whilst retaining many interesting period features such as semi-vaulted ceilings, exposed wall and ceiling timbers and cottage style doors, benefits from full central heating, double glazing, a variety of oak boarded, slate or flag stones to the ground floor, a superb fitted kitchen/breakfast room and high quality Victorian style bathroom fittings, etc. The property also enjoys about half an acre of mainly lawned gardens together with an excellent modern stable yard and adjoining paddock of about 51/2 acres or thereabouts. This is an unusual opportunity, therefore, to acquire a fine, character country home in a lovely setting with valuable equestrian amenities, and an early inspection is recommended.
On The Ground Floor - A stained wood front door opens to the Reception Hall with a useful cloaks cupboard, a Fitted Cloakroom having a washbasin and WC, and a wide arch separating the hall from a good sized Family Room.
There is an excellent fitted Kitchen/Breakfast Room overlooking the gardens with a glazed stable door to the sun deck and contains an extensive range of cream wall and floor cupboard units having granite worktops and incorporating a twin Belfast glazed sink, a two oven LPG traditional cast iron Aga with an integrated AGA module double oven and gas hob with extractor hood over, laminate wood flooring and space for a dishwasher. The adjoining Utility Room has separate access to the garden and includes a Belfast glazed sink, hardwood worktops and plumbing for a washing machine.
The charming, L shaped Sitting Room enjoys French doors and a picture window to the gardens with delightful views, exposed ceiling beams and a feature open vaulted ceiling to the dining area, and an open brick corner fireplace with an enamelled wood burning stove. There is also a Study or Occasional Bedroom leading off.
Opening from a Side Hall, with a built-in linen cupboard and separate boiler cupboard housing the Worcester LPG central heating boiler, are two attractive Double Bedrooms and an inter-connecting Bathroom which contains a roll edge bath, tiled shower cubicle, twin vanity washbasins on a dresser base and WC.
On The First Floor - An oak staircase from the side hall leads up to a Landing, opening from which is the Principal Bedroom Suite. This includes an excellent Double Bedroom, Dressing Room with hanging rails, and a large en-suite Bathroom containing a roll edge bath, walk-in shower with curved glass shower screen, twin vanity washbasins on chests of drawer bases and WC.
Outside - The property is approached from the Fosse Way over a long, tree lined, shared private drive leading to a sweeping gravelled driveway and parking area, flanked by lawns and flower borders at the front of the property. To the front is a small productive orchard with a useful old timber Store building, whilst a five bar gate opens to a further gravelled driveway leading to the attached Double Garage having two pairs of garage doors and power connected. The main gardens, which enjoy superb countryside views, are located principally to the south side of the house with a large timber sun terrace, pergola feature, fish pond and further lawns, etc.
The equestrian facilities are approached off the shared driveway and include a recently constructed timber Stable Building providing three good Loose Boxes, Tack Room and Implement Store, with paved stable yard, mains power and water connected.
