Exceptionally well located, this truly stunning country home offers the best of both worlds with country walks on the doorstep and breath-taking views over the rolling hills, yet is within easy reach of local amenities.

The historic towns of Tetbury, Malmesbury, and Burford are only a short drive away. These towns offer a selection of independent shops, cafes and restaurants and everyday shopping facilities.

The area offers an excellent choice of schooling and includes public, state and grammar schools such as the three CofE Primary Schools (Stratton, Powell’s and Sapperton), Pate’s Grammar School, Rendcomb College, Beaudesert Park, Westonbirt, Hatherop Castle, Cheltenham College and Cheltenham Ladies College, Marlborough College, to name a few.

Sporting opportunities are abundant in the area with nearby golf courses in Baunton, Minchinhampton, Cheltenham and Naunton Downs; bridle paths are plentiful; sailing and water sports can be enjoyed at the Cotswold Water Park, and finally there is Polo across the Duntisbourne Valley in Cirencester Park.

Communications in the area are excellent with gigaclear to the property providing ultra high-speed internet. There is easy access to major hubs and international airports in the South West, the Midlands and London, via the M4 and M5 motorways.

Description - The Old House is the perfect example of the fusion of traditional build and contemporary design blending so beautifully together to create a welcoming, comfortable and bright home in an exceptional country setting. It is an inspiring home, renovated with love.

The attention to detail in the creation of The Old House is remarkable with the architectural design and artistic flair making this a rare and beautiful find.
Grade II Listed, the current owner has been mindful to retain the original features of the 17th Century house with its flagstone floors, stone mullion windows and exposed beams and, in homage to its authenticity, has incorporated and highlighted these within the recent renovations.
The Old House is naturally bright and light throughout with views over the garden, terraces and countryside beyond. Bespoke and elegantly designed fittings are a superb addition to the house with carefully positioned Artemide lighting, stylish Bisque radiators and a fabulous striking red Aga in the kitchen.
Traditional in style yet contemporary in living, The Old House benefits from discreet modern technology with partial underfloor heating, remote wifi-regulated mood lighting and high-speed internet.
The ground floor living space flows beautifully with the sitting and living rooms both featuring generous fireplaces, one with wood burner, ideal for the cooler months of the year. French doors from the living room lead to the stunning south facing garden.
The first floor consists of the master bedroom with en suite bathroom with separate shower. This bathroom also serves a further double bedroom which has independent access from the kitchen. Across the landing is a further double bedroom and bathroom. The second floor consists of a double bedroom with en suite shower room.

Planning permission has been granted to join the separate annexe, The Old House Barn, to the main house via a glazed link to create fluid and ample additional living space. The annexe currently consists of a generous kitchen/ breakfast/ living room with a mezzanine study area, a double bedroom and a separate bathroom.

The South facing garden is spectacular. A garden enthusiast, the owner has created a beautiful garden, sociable and elegant, yet also perfectly functional with peaceful seating areas, open lawn and colourful herbaceous borders. The garden is quite simply delightful!

Ample parking is to the front and side of the house.

Vendors' thoughts: "The Old House is a wonderful and comfortable family home in a quintessential Cotswold setting and has offered us unspoiled views, peace and privacy. It provides a tranquil and restorative environment which now combines 17th century charm with a more modern 21st century aesthetic. The Old House has been enjoyed by friends and family through the seasons and I have many happy memories of weekends and evenings spent relaxing and entertaining in the house, garden and even the odd party in the Old Barn! I will miss the lifestyle that the house has afforded, located a world away on the edge of a beautiful valley but with all the convenience of being only minutes from Cirencester and all that the Cotswolds has to offer."

In a nutshell: The perfect balance of traditional build and contemporary style, in a spectacular setting.

Council Tax Band F.

Tenure: Freehold. Grade II Listed.

Services: Mains water and electricity. Private drainage. Oil-fired heating. Gigaclear fibreoptic internet to the house.
