Property Description

Constructed using Cotswold stone in a classic period style, this impressive detached country home offers a wealth of accommodation and flexible living arrangements, aided by a well-proportioned detached stone cottage and thoughtful extensions. Situated within approximately five acres of land and landscaped formal gardens approached by a secure and electric gated driveway, this well-presented home offers generously-proportioned rooms over two storeys.

The welcoming reception hall on the ground floor that connects with the porch provides access to a study / occasional fifth bedroom, a cloakroom with W.C, and a large utility room which houses the boiler and a sink, as well as plenty of space, power, and plumbing. The spacious kitchen / dining room can be found at the end of this reception hall. Finished in a tasteful and traditional style in-keeping with a quintessentially English country home, this kitchen features solid wood cupboards and drawers above and beneath a high-quality worktop, offering a dishwasher, a Belling Range oven cooker, and a Belfast sink. The attractive and low-maintenance York stone flooring extends through to a boot room.  There is also a well-proportioned sitting room that can be accessed from the kitchen / breakfast room. This sitting room benefits from a bright triple-aspect ratio as well as a working log burner and rich wooden floors which extends into the separate dining room / formal lounge situated adjacent which is a sizeable 21.6" x 12".

The accommodation on the first floor is just as well-balanced, boasting a generously-proportioned main bedroom which benefits from a light dual-aspect ratio and features hand-crafted wooden doors and a delightful exposed stone wall which adds to the on-going theme of charm and character. This main bedroom comes with a dressing room as well as a sleek and notably large en suite bathroom that showcases a four-piece suite. The views from the first floor are superb, with occupiers of all four of the bedrooms being able enjoy a far-reaching vista of the surrounding countryside and enclosed, private gardens. The other three bedrooms all benefit from built in storage, with the guest bedroom also being served by another well-appointed en suite. Furthermore, this first floor supports a stylish family shower room and a wide space within the landing area which could quite comfortably satisfy the need for a second location in which to work from home, if required.

Valley Cottage, a detached stone-built dwelling situated across the driveway from the main house, consists of two double bedrooms, as well as a well-equipped ‘Cotswold-style’ kitchenette. In addition, it offers a modern shower room, and an open-plan sitting / dining area that omits a feeling of space through the excellent application of a vaulted ceiling. Ideal for long or short term letting / multi-generational living.

The mature and well-established enclosed grounds that these buildings occupy are highly useable, beautiful, and notably private. A carefully planted rose garden offers a tranquil seating area next to a hand-crafted oriental stone bridge that lends itself as a perfect space in which to think and reflect. Adjacent to the rose garden is a fair expanse of lawn that is accented with a variety of plants, flowers, and small trees which form an ideal area for the family to enjoy and for wildlife to thrive. To the right of the formal gardens, enclosed fields can be found offering a field shelter and clear boundaries, set up ready for the next owner to cater for livestock or horses.

Up towards the opposite side of this desirable plot at the end of the secure gravelled driveway, a wide and secure wooden built barn is currently used to garage agricultural and personal vehicles. Situated next to this are a series of working outbuildings, inclusive of a tack room and two additional stables, hay barn with a covered concrete forecourt in front and access to a water feed and power. Total accommodation between the main residence and the ancillary accommodation found in Valley Cottage is around three-thousand square feet. There is also a well-built wood cabin with power and lighting on the grounds which provides another different space to enjoy.

This unique property resides on the edge of the picturesque and popular Cotswold village of Nettleton, an area of outstanding national beauty known for its stunning walks and diverse riding routes. Nettleton and the neighbouring village of Castle Combe and Yatton Keynell are bustling communities that offer local residents amenities which include three churches, a post office / general store, several pubs, local eateries and social sports clubs to take part in. A doctors surgery and several schooling options (from playgroup through to secondary schooling) can be found close at hand, with the Georgian City of Bath found approximately 10 miles distant with its diverse shops, excellent schools and many leisure activities. For those needing access to the motorway, Junction 17 and 18 can be found roughly 15 minutes drive away, and the mainline train station of Chippenham is approximately twenty minutes drive, providing direct and easy access into London Paddington in a little over an hour. The beautiful village of Tetbury is just over 12 miles away is a historic wool town situated within the Cotswold Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Being minutes away from Badminton puts the property right in the centre of excellent equestrian facilities.
