Situated just yards from the top of the bustling Cricklade High Street and next to the grounds of St Sampsons Church, is this spacious Grade II listed double fronted town home with the added benefit of rear gated parking and a detached 2 storey annexe. This Historic building, thought to date from the late 16th Century, was a public House until 1997, when it was renovated and converted to offer flexible family living space arranged over two floors within the main house and to the ground floor with mezzanine level within the annexe. Throughout both buildings historical features have been retained and supplemented by hand made or locally sourced period fittings. Briefly the accommodation comprises to the ground floor of 4 reception rooms including a generous dining room with a large open fireplace and exposed beams, a sitting room with solid ash flooring, exposed beams and an open stone fireplace, both with elegant windows to the front. Also on the ground floor are a snug and large rear garden room currently fitted as a home office. The kitchen enjoys a good range of bespoke, handmade units all with German engineered cabinet fittings and made of Ash and Burred Ash inset with stained glass designs of the local ‘Snakes Head’ fritillaries inspired by Rennie Mackintosh.
To the first floor is a master bedroom also with solid Ash floors has a dual aspect, vaulted with 16th c. beamed ceiling with exposed red brick chimney, bespoke built in furniture and a lovely en-suite bathroom complete with roll-top bath and separate shower cubicle.
In addition there are 3 further large bedrooms each with their own particular features including window seats, bespoke Ash wardrobes and feature fireplaces. The bathroom has a bath with overhead shower. The annexe, believed to be former stables, has been converted to provide spacious open plan ‘L’ shaped accommodation to the ground floor with vaulted ceiling and exposed stone walls. The sitting and dining area lead through to a fitted kitchen and a ground floor wet room. To the first floor is a mezzanine level with large old oak floored galleried bedroom space.
Cricklade is the first town on the River Thames and is almost equidistant from Cirencester to the north and Swindon to the south and provides a good range of local shopping, Pubs and restaurants and recreational facilities. There is also a Post Office and Doctors Surgery as well as a Primary school and co-educational preparatory school. All of the facilities and the river are a short walking distance from the house.
The South and West facing gardens see summer sun from mid-morning to early evening and are enclosed by walling with double opening gates leading to an area for off road parking for two cars. The gardens have been landscaped and include a covered well, patio, lawn and well stocked borders.
