Property Description

Full description

Byfield House is quite possibly one of the most remarkable homes we have had the pleasure of marketing. A truly enchanting property bursting with period grandeur, stylishly presented by the current owners in a classic yet minimalistic style. A perfect Cotswold retreat or perhaps even a boutique hotel. The possibilities are endless, and viewings are an absolute must.

The interior is jam packed with original features and upon entering the house you’re immediately enveloped within its wonderful historic ambiance. With flagstone floors the entrance hall leads onwards to the heart of the property, the Tudor Hall, and from here the eye is drawn in all directions. The choice is whether to explore the beautiful walled gardens, the kitchen and cellars, the fantastic games room or even the donkey stables. In addition the ground floor also boasts a splendid drawing room with its Neo-classical Adam style plasterwork and beautiful Georgian windows.

The upper floors are just as special; exposed floorboards galore, 18th Century stick baluster stairway, 6 bedrooms and yet another glorious reception room, currently used as the sitting room. There are three superb unconverted attic rooms which, subject to the necessary consents being obtained, could provide further accommodation or indeed be converted to create a outstanding master suite.

In addition to the main house is The Garden Room annex which is accessed via a wonderfully aged oak doorway leading to the donkey passageway where the donkeys carrying wool packs would have been led. It comprises of kitchen, bedroom and shower room with a covered terrace. Perfect for the Airbnb crowd.

To the rear lie the lovely walled gardens. Mainly laid to lawn, it includes an abundance of mature trees and shrubs along with various seating areas and a "secret" garden. A gravelled and paved area provide an ideal space for alfresco dining. To one side is a "spite" wall which affords plentiful privacy and the summer colour within the garden is an utter delight. It is unusual to find a garden of this size in the heart of the village and it provides a tranquil and calm haven from the hustle and bustle of everyday life.

The oldest part of the property is the attached barn to the rear, which is believed to have 14th Century foundations and predates the Tudor part of the house. The property was extended in 1730 with the addition of a four storey wing and a Georgian top floor to the Tudor part of the house. In the 1820s a Regency link was built between the main house and the barn and the whole property is now a delightful melange of historical styles.
