Property description

Tenure: Freehold

An outstanding and recently refurbished village house with a fantastic cottage, pool and stunning gardens.


Sandford House is a charming and recently refurbished Grade II Listed Cotswold stone house which is believed to date back to the 17th century. Our clients have spent considerable time and effort to transform the house into the perfect property for a modern family.

On the ground floor there are a range of main reception rooms which are ideal for entertaining and family living. These include a spacious drawing room complete with working fire and with views over the private gardens and stream. There is also a large dining room complete with high ceilings and characterful bay window, sitting room / snug, gym, utility room and a fantastic kitchen breakfast room complete with hand built units and direct access to the garden. On the first floor there are five bedrooms and two bathrooms. Of particular merit is the large principal bedroom complete with a beautifully fitted en-suite bath and shower room. This bedroom further benefits from a fabulous barrelled ceiling. On the second floor the well proportioned rooms continue with two further double bedrooms and another bathroom.

Externally the property benefits from a an equally attractive Cotswold stone cottage. Internally there is a sitting room, kitchen breakfast room, three bedrooms and family bathroom. This incredibly versatile space could be great for letting, home office or as staff accommodation.

Sandford House benefits from a lovely approach through twin pillars with a gravel drive leading to the front of the house. There is ample parking for a number of cars and although in the heart of the village there is a real feeling of privacy. The gardens are mostly laid to lawn with some formal flower beds and a charming stream runs through the front garden complete with attractive stone bridge into a small wooded area. At the rear of the house and cottage is a beautifully landscaped courtyard area with heated swimming pool and a terrace area perfect for al fresco dining.

In addition there is a further paddock area.


Sandford House is located in the heart of the Cotswold village of Avening. The property is well connected with a good train service from Kemble and Stroud into London Paddington from 76 minutes.

The M4 motorway (junction 17) is also within easy reach providing access to London, the M25 and Heathrow Airport to the east and Bristol and the M5 to the west. The towns of Stroud, Nailsworth and Cirencester offer more extensive shopping facilities and Bath and Cheltenham are also very accessible.

The area is well regarded for its prep and public schools. A wide choice of schools in the area include the Cheltenham Ladies College, Cheltenham College, Dean Close, Westonbirt School, Wycliffe, Rendcomb, Pate’s Grammar School, Marling School for Boys, Stroud High School and Deer Park Comprehensive school on the edge of Cirencester.
