Forming one of the principal houses of an architecturally stunning Grade II Listed late Georgian terrace, is this remarkable four-bedroom house which has recently been the subject of a graceful restoration, lovingly restored by its current owners.
As with many houses built of this time there are two impressive formal reception rooms situated either side of the entrance hall where the eye is drawn to unexpectedly high ceilings and large sash windows set into stone mullions with working shutters which flood the rooms with natural light. The drawing room enjoys a dual aspect, stripped wood flooring with the dining room being an equally impressive room with beautiful flagstone flooring. Both rooms benefit from elegant stone fireplaces fitted with inset wood burners. The kitchen breakfast room is also a lovely bright room featuring a part glazed vaulted ceiling and is fitted with a comprehensive range of handmade units including a Lacanche range cooker and granite worktops. A rear hallway with modern cloakroom completes the ground floor space.
To the first floor is a delightful master bedroom with a refitted contemporary en-suite shower room, and a further spacious dual aspect double bedroom. Both rooms are lit by a large sash windows complimented by high ceilings and stripped wood flooring. The second floor features two generously proportioned bedrooms with beautifully restored timber beams and exposed vaulted ceilings. A modern and well equipped family bathroom concludes the internal accommodation.
The property is conveniently located within walking distance of a full complement of local amenities situated within a much sought after village just 4 miles South of Cirencester.
Edwards College is a fine Grade II Listed building perfectly positioned in South Cerney which is a relatively large village about 3 miles to the South of Cirencester. It stands at the south-eastern rise of the Cotswold Hills with the River Churn running through it. Within the village there is a primary school, village hall, a parish church, various shops including two small supermarkets, chemist and several pubs. It is accessible to either Kemble or Swindon for the railway station to London (Paddington 58 minutes) and the M4 and M5 motorways. Close by is the Cotswold Water Park, which offers excellent water-based leisure facilities, including sailing, windsurfing, water skiing etc. There are also nature reserves, walks, picnic sites and a number of bridleways.
On approaching Edwards College, accessed from both sides, two sets of double timber gates open into a lovely garden that offers the highest levels of privacy and south-west facing orientation. There is a gravelled seating area and path leading to the front door, and established hedgerow and shrubbery line the perimeter, and timber shed neatly tuck away from sight. The garden is enclosed by a combination of Cotswold stone walling and hedgerow. To the side of the property is a parking area for four cars as well as a timber shed and log store.
This building is listed as Grade II under the Planning (Listed Buildings and Conservation Areas) Act 1990 as amended for its special architectural or historic interest.
