Orchard House was constructed in 1998 of natural stone beneath a stone tiled roof and offers very well-presented and flexible accommodation laid out over two floors. The interiors have been designed and transformed by local interior designer Pippa Paton using a subtle and contemporary colour palette creating a sense of space and calm. The property has featured in Homes & Gardens which celebrates aspirational homes and the latest decorating trends.

The property is entered via a welcoming hall filled with natural light and a real sense of space which leads through to an elegant dining room providing an open plan feel. The well-equipped kitchen/breakfast room is fitted with a range of floor and wall units with built-in appliances, including a Mercury double oven and hob. A pocket door leads to a useful utility room with door to the garden. French doors lead out from the kitchen/breakfast room onto a terrace which is perfect for alfresco dining. There is also a downstairs cloakroom fitted with a bespoke wooden sink and unit. Steps from the hall lead down into the sitting room which has a stylish wood burning stove and a door leading onto the terrace. Double doors lead from the sitting room into the spacious conservatory with partly exposed stone walls and French doors to the terrace, a perfect place from which to enjoy the afternoon sun. A study can be accessed from the hallway on this level.

From the hall stairs lead up to the first floor landing from which is accessed the superb master suite with fitted wardrobes and en suite shower room with his and hers sinks. There are three further double bedrooms, one with en suite shower room, and a spacious family bathroom with separate shower.

A gravelled driveway lies alongside the front of the property which is entered through a wooden gate. There is a detached double garage and access to the rear of the property on both sides. A fine laid to lawn garden is bordered by hedges and trees creating a sense of privacy and seclusion. At the bottom of the garden is a nature pond and a charming New England style summer house lies close to the property.

The property is extremely well presented and is likely to appeal to those buyers looking for a family home or second home in the Cotswolds.
