Full description

Tenure: Freehold

The Old Rowley is a wonderful example of a black and white detached farmhouse, located within a village on the outskirts of Cheltenham, offering formal gardens and paddocks that total 5.02 acres.

Having lived in the property for the last 20 years, the current owner has decided that the time is right for him to downsize, so allowing a new family to move in, enjoy and place their own mark on the property. Believed to date back in part to the 16th Century, the property is in need of updating yet is full of character and charm, associated with the period such as flagstone floors, inglenook fireplaces and exposed beams, to wooden floorboards and open roof spaces.

Located in the village of Stoke Orchard, the setting is within close proximity to the larger village of Bishops Cleeve which offers its own High Street which has a number of independent and national shops, a supermarket, bars, restaurants and cafes plus two primary schools and a secondary school. The Regency Spa town of Cheltenham is located within five miles and offers a wider variation of shops, retail parks, schools and is also home to the world-famous Gold Cup at Prestbury Park whilst the Montpellier area holds festivals throughout the year to include: Jazz, Science, Literature and Food.

Returning to the property, double gates lead into the parking area and in turn to the outbuildings and stable block. A pathway leads to a front door which in turn leads into the entrance hall. Once inside the property offers a number of reception rooms, four in total with two having inglenook open fireplaces. There is also a kitchen/breakfast room which has an array of fitted units and integral appliances. Further rooms to complete the downstairs accommodation include a cloakroom and ground floor shower room.

There are two stairwells leading upstairs, the first found to the rear of the family room, the second hidden behind a door in the living room. The first stairwell gives access to three of the five bedrooms, all of which are double rooms and the family bathroom. The bathroom is a three-piece suite complete with roll top bath

The second stairwell leads to the final two bedrooms, both of which could be described as double rooms and a cloakroom.

A number of the bedrooms have double aspect windows and all offer views across the gardens and beyond to open Gloucestershire countryside. There is a second level to the home which is described as the Attic Room. Being open plan, the room measures over nine metres in length by three metres in width.

Returning outside there are formal gardens, paved terraces and a pond. The outbuildings consist of a series of open fronted barns, a further attached building which at one stage served as offices and three stables and a tack room/hay store. The formal gardens are believed to measure in the region of 1.75 acres with the paddocks being approx. 3.25 acres

The Old Rowley is certainly very unique and individual and offers space both inside and out and would make a perfect family home, particularly for those with equestrian interests.
