Guide price

  • Bedrooms: 4
Located in a slightly elevated position and enjoying excellent views to both front and rear towards undulating countryside yet only 100 yards from the centre of one of the most picturesque villages in the north Cotswolds, this deceptively spacious and substantially extended detached, three storey, four bedroom, executive country residence has been enhanced and embellished by the present owners over the last decade and must be viewed internally to be fully appreciated.One of the most stunning features of the property is the 25 ft extended living kitchen with an 11 ft high apex ceiling and French doors opening onto the south facing rear garden. The room is stylishly equipped with antique oak style units, terracotta tile floor and there is a large Rangemaster stove. The property has a light and airy through living room with a substantial Cotswold stone fireplace, a wood burning stove and a fashionable recently fitted solid oak floor. There is a separate utility room and a spacious ground floor dining room/study and an enjoyable walk round facility making maximum use of the space available.At first floor level there are four double bedrooms, two of which have en suite facilities and there is a five piece family bathroom suite with both a bath and shower. There is also a concealed staircase leading to a loft studio room which enjoys some of the best views from the property.For those who are aware that off street parking is extremely important in Cotswold villages, this property has not only a double garage with an electronically operated door but also a wide driveway with parking for four vehicles.The centre of Longborough village is located just over 100 yards away where there is a local primary school, a community run village store and tea rooms, the Coach and Horses public house and a village hall with a wide variety of activities. There are excellent walks to be enjoyed in the surrounding countryside and the Longborough Promenade Festival takes place over the summer months in the grounds of Banks Fee House where opera lovers can be seen in full evening dress walking to the concert through the village and picnicking on the lawn.Longborough is positioned midway between the Cotswold market towns of Stow on the Wold where there is a good quality local supermarket and Moreton in Marsh where there is a community hospital and rail links to London Paddington.
