DESCRIPTION The Old Bakehouse is a substantial detached period village home situated within the very heart of the popular village of Minety located on the outskirts of the Cotswold Water Park with excellent road networks to the surrounding towns. Dating back to the late 1800s formerly as the village bakery and grain store, the property underwent a transformation in the 1970s when it was converted to a residential home whilst it's charming period character has been retained. The current owners have since completely refurbished the property including re-wiring, re-plumbing, installing a new external boiler and general updating to present the property as a beautiful modern standard throughout. The deceptively spacious accommodation extends in all to 1,837 sq.ft. and offers flexibility for various living requirements.
A front hall has excellent built-in storage and opens to a generously proportioned 29ft living/dining room with exposed beams and a wood burning stove. The ground floor accommodation flows well with French double doors leading into to a conservatory which overlooks the garden and in return connects through to the spacious kitchen/family room which has a high vaulted ceiling and double doors to the sunny garden bringing in plenty of natural light. A further large reception room is arranged at the front which could be utilised as a ground floor bedroom if required, served by a stylish modern shower room adjacent. On the first floor there are three bedrooms all with excellent ceiling height and the master of which has ample fitted wardrobes. The family bathroom has a shower over bath.
The property is approached through a metal five-bar gate to a large gravelled parking area for several vehicles. In 2015 a detached timber garage was constructed benefiting from power and eaves storage above. The south-west facing garden has been well-tended to with a centred lawn, patio off the French doors and mature shrub borders enclosed by timber fencing.
