Wonderfully located in the old part of Draycott village, adjoining farm land in a particularly quiet and relaxed rural setting, this stylishly appointed and thoughtfully improved three storey country residence was historically two cottages.
This four/five bedroom stone-built property combines the innate character and charm of a period home with the contemporary refinements of modern day living. There are a wealth of period features with exposed beams, built-in window seats, some original flagstone flooring and open fireplaces to both the living and dining rooms. Unusually, the two second floor attic bedrooms each retain their own original staircases.
Contemporary refinements include a bespoke solid wood fitted kitchen with granite worktops, gas fired Aga and a range of integrated appliances. The imaginatively planned single storey rear extension provides a separate utility room housing a pressurised hot water system, family room/fifth bedroom, cloakroom, and a light and airy study. The unexpectedly spacious rear hallway lends itself to entertaining, and adds to the flexibility of the downstairs living space.
This traditional Cotswold stone home is warm and welcoming, and truly needs to be viewed internally to appreciate the versatility and quality of the accommodation. It has the benefit of off-street parking for two vehicles and a delightful and well-stocked rear garden with several seating areas, together with a range of outbuildings with potential for conversion.
Draycott lies within an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty between the fashionable North Cotswold village of Blockley and the traditional market town of Moreton in Marsh where there are rail links to London Paddington. The property is within the catchment area of Blockley Primary School, St David's in Moreton in Marsh and St James' in Chipping Campden. Secondary education is provided by Chipping Campden School together with Grammar schools in Stratford-upon-Avon.
