There is an active village calendar with events including an annual fête and bonfire party, as well as a book club, a WI, cricket club and tennis club.

Description

Lane House is a charming Grade II listed, Cotswold stone village home, tucked away in a secluded position just off the Green in this sought after village.

The entrance porch leads to an inner hall along the rear of the house which gives access to the spacious accommodation; this includes a snug/dining room which has a handsome stone fireplace and exposed timber beam, and a 23ft long sitting room, which has reclaimed oak plank flooring, open fireplace, bay window and dining area. A modern fitted kitchen/breakfast room can be found at the far end of the house, which has a range cooker and integrated appliances; the close proximity to the garden room means that this is a very social area, especially in the summer months with doors opening out onto the beautiful garden. There is a cloakroom/WC at the end of the inner hall and a door leading into the garden room, which also has a utility room leading off from it. From the inner hallway, a staircase leads up to the first floor landing which is double aspect. A bathroom at both ends of the landing provides the perfect situation for family life or having guests. There are four double bedrooms, three of which have very good built-in storage cupboards.

Outside
Outside, to the rear, you will find an excellent sized garden with terrace area leading up onto a lawn. The lawn has borders of mature shrubs and trees which help make this garden very private. A wildlife pond, herb garden and mature fruit trees complete the planting.

A bothy makes for a perfect work from home office/studio, although it needs a little attention to bring it up to studio standard. The wooden panelled gate provides access to a parking area and the double garage, which is a real rarity in the village. At the side of the garage is a log and bin store area enclosed by a Cotswold stone wall.

Square Footage: 2,123 sq ft
