Enchanting Cotswold country house with views


Description

Situated in a prominent position within the hamlet, next to the
church, Wilcote Grange adjoins and overlooks the Cotswold
countryside.

The principal dwelling of a large farmstead which has since been divided, Wilcote Grange has origins dating to the late 17th century with further 18th and 19th century alterations.
Constructed of coursed limestone with a Stonesfield slate roof and attached to Wilcote Grange Barn at the rear, the property is Grade II listed.

The property retains a wealth of original features from each era, including the flagstones and large inglenook fireplaces, to the high ceilings, sash windows and shutters, ceiling cornicing and deep skirting boards.

Accommodation over three floors lends itself to family living
and entertaining. With two staircases, formal reception rooms, a farmhouse kitchen, some grand bedrooms with en suite bathrooms on the first floor and three further bedrooms on
the second floor, which are ideal for children and teenagers.

Having been clearly very much enjoyed by the current owners
for many years, Wilcote Grange will benefit from some updating, and offers a wonderful opportunity for the next
generation.

Outbuildings, gardens and grounds: A detached timber clad garage block includes double closed garage, two open bay areas, workshop and first floor store room accessed via an external staircase. There is also a green house and summer house. Wilcote Grange is accessed along a private gravel drive to ample parking. Gardens and grounds extend to about 2.74 acres and include formal lawns, terraces, a tennis court (in need of repair), fruit cages, vegetable gardens and an orchard. Viewed from the terraces and front lawns of the house, is an adjacent paddock of about 3.66 acres, which is gated and has a water supply.

Mains water and electricity. Private drainage. Oil-fired boiler and Aga.
