In the village of Quenington, this five bedroom detached house has been extended and sits in a good-sized plot.

An extended, five bedroom detached family home nestling in the ever-popular Cotswold village of Quenington. The property has been improved over the years and now offers a lovely contemporary way of living.

The light and airy accommodation is arranged over two floors and is approached into an entrance hall, where there are stairs to the first floor with cupboard under. A door from the hall leads into the cloakroom and into the sitting room, where there is a fitted wood burner and a window to the front. The dining room opens up into the garden room, where there is a lovely picture window overlooking the rear garden. French doors also lead out to the rear and a vaulted ceiling has Velux-style lights. The L-shaped kitchen/breakfast room has a generous range of units with integral appliances and a Karndean floor. The utility room has a door to the rear garden and into the garage.

At first floor level the galleried landing leads to five bedrooms, and the main family bathroom with white suite. The master bedroom has the added benefit of built-in wardrobes and an en-suite shower room.

Outside, a gravel driveway provides parking and leads to a double garage with twin up-and-over doors. Pedestrian side access leads to the rear garden that is well-enclosed and offers a good degree of privacy. It is predominantly laid to lawn with flower and shrub borders and a paved patio.

The beautiful village of Quenington can be found on the banks of the gently flowing

River Coln as it winds its way through unspoilt countryside from Bibury to Fairford.

Important historic buildings include a medieval large dovecote above a gatehouse, and St Swithin's Church of England parish church, built mainly in the late 11th century and (despite partial Victorian restoration) listed in the highest category of listed building, Grade I. The village has a village hall, a pub and a pleasant village green.

Barnsley House Gardens, founded by Rosemary Verey, can be found a short distance away. R.A.F. Fairford is also within easy reach, with Fairford centre just two miles away.

It has previously been suggested that the name Quenington could have meant "settlement on the Coln", the river which flows through the village, although the name 'Coln' is of unknown origin. Quenington is mentioned in the Domesday Book in relation to two mills at either end of the village, a water mill and a fulling mill, both now private residences.
