DESCRIPTION This Cotswold stone period house has been the subject of a truly stunning major renovation and sympathetic modernisation by local Tetbury based company Hatch Builders who are renown for very high-quality refurbishments. Completed in early 2021, this former post office has been substantially extended and thoroughly renovated whilst thoughtfully ensuring the original character is retained and recycled within the redevelopment creating a truly unique characterful home in keeping with this charming quintessential Cotswold village. The property boasts high modern specifications including an air sourced heating system with heat recovery and underfloor heating throughout, designed in all for running a superb economically efficient home.
Spanning over two floors, the sizable accommodation extends in all to 1,740 sq.ft. showcasing quality fittings throughout including hardwood windows and doors and brushed brass sockets and light switch finishes. The ground floor is welcomed into the impressive entrance hall with limestone flooring and a stunning limestone staircase up whilst a delightful feature is the original post office safe which has been incorporated. Off the entrance hall there is ample built-in storage and a downstairs shower room. The living room has a charming front bay window, engineered hardwood flooring and a beautiful Bath stone fireplace with electric fire inset. At the heart of the home is a magnificent open plan kitchen/family room arranged at the rear complete with bi-folds, double doors and large window to really take in the lovely view over the garden and adjoining countryside. Continuing with the limestone flooring beneath, the kitchen is beautifully fitted with painted timber units and quartz worktops incorporating Neff appliances including a fridge/freezer, double oven, induction hob, wine cooler and dishwasher. A large cupboard located off the entrance hall has been designed to house the washing machine/tumble dryer.
Upstairs, there are four flexible bedrooms and a wet room style shower room off the landing. The principal bedroom is fitted with a luxurious roll-top bath for the ultimate pamper experience whilst the second bedroom has a fully equipped en-suite with both shower and freestanding bath. Another notable point of the exceptional attention to detail is that each room has an individual outlet for fibre optic broadband delivering superfast internet speeds throughout the house, ideal for home working or smart televisions.
Externally, the property is set along this quaint village lane with the traditional post box out front, close to the village centre and just a short walk to the popular pub. Bound by Cotswold stone walling, the front garden has been laid with gravel interspersed with young shrubs. The rear garden backs onto open farmland for an idyllic rural outlook. The garden is landscaped for easy maintenance with a millboard decking terrace off the kitchen, good-sized lawn and further terrace at the bottom of the garden which has potential to provide additional parking if desired. A driveway to the side of the terrace leads to an off-road parking area for three cars adjacent to the garden and benefits from an electric car charging point. The property benefits a 10 year structural warranty.
