£425,000

Guide price

  • Bedrooms: 3
Positioned to enjoy an engaging aspect to the front towards the woodland of Bourton House garden, and over trees and gardens to the rear, this deceptively spacious, link-detached, two storey, three double bedroomed village residence also has the benefit of an enclosed, well-screened south-facing garden to the rear.

Substantially extended over recent years, the property now has a slightly angled breakfast room with bi-folding doors, maximising light into the property and making the garden another room. The traditional farmhouse-style kitchen has a range of bespoke oak units and is formed in open-plan with the breakfast room, creating a walk round effect between the kitchen, breakfast room and sizeable living room.

At first floor level, there is a recently installed four-piece bath and shower room suite with a roll-top slipper bath and a wet room-style walk-in shower cubicle with rain shower head all with under floor heating. The bedrooms enjoy the best views from the property and add a real feeling of being in the countryside.

The property is warmed with gas-fired central heating from a combination boiler and there is a homely wood-burning stove within a Bath stone fireplace in the living room.

The property is set back from the main road through Bourton-on-the-Hill, where there is an eclectic mix of 17th and 18th Century homes and all home to three of the most famous houses in the area whose gardens are open to the public including Batsford House, Bourton House and Sezincote. The village has its own gastro pub in the Horse and Groom at the top of the hill, and the local garage and filling station also sells a range of groceries. The village is located only two miles from the traditional market town of Moreton-in-Marsh, where there is a wide range of other amenities, including two primary schools and the all-important railway station with links to Oxford and London Paddington. The village is also in the catchment area of Chipping Campden secondary school.
