A well-proportioned detached family home boasting impressive reception space and a southerly facing rear garden situated in the heart of this idyllic Cotswold village on the outskirts of Tetbury.
The property is located in Castle Farm Close, a small cul-de-sac of modern Cotswold stone built properties understood to have been built by Hills Homes in 2000 and owned by the current family since new. The house has been very well maintained and benefits from timber double glazing and central heating throughout.
On the ground floor, the front door opens into a welcoming entrance hallway that provides access to all the reception rooms, kitchen, utility room and stairs leading to the first floor with understairs storage and a further walk-in cupboard which makes the ideal space to hang coats and store shoes. The welcoming sitting room, complete with an open fire within a Bath stone surround, sits to the far side of the property. There is a window to the front and double doors that open into the conservatory, at the rear. This was a later addition to the property and has French doors leading directly into the rear garden. The conservatory also cleverly ties the layout together linking through to the study and back to the entrance hallway. The double aspect kitchen/dining room is to the front of the property and is fitted with a good range of wall and base units plus an integrated dishwasher, electric oven and hob along with space for a freestanding fridge/freezer. To the opposite side of the hall from the kitchen, is a utility room with an external door leading to the garden. There are base and wall cabinets, plumbing for a washing machine and space for a tumble dryer. A downstairs W.C. is also situated on the ground floor.
On the first floor a central landing has doors leading to four double bedrooms and a family bathroom. The master bedroom benefits from a dual aspect, built in wardrobes and an en-suite shower room. Bedroom two also benefits from built in wardrobes. Bedrooms three and four have been converted into one large bedroom by the current owners. However, this larger room could easily be turned back into two separate bedrooms. The airing cupboard is accessed from the master bedroom.
Externally, the rear walled garden is southerly facing and is predominantly laid to lawn and edged with herbaceous borders. There is a pergola covered patio, situated perfectly for afternoon and evening BBQ’s and entertaining. A rear access gate leads to the driveway, which has parking for two vehicles in front of the double garage. The double garage has been divided into two, one half remaining as a garage, the other having been converted into a versatile room - there is a window overlooking the garden and pedestrian access into the room via an entrance hall. The room has power points, a telephone point and lighting and is currently used as an office.
The property is understood to be connected to mains electricity, water and drainage. The heating is fired by oil. Council tax band F (Cotswold District Council).
