An outstanding property of excellent proportions and finished to a very high standard throughout. Its favourable position is complimented by views towards St. Marys Church and accompanied by over half an acre of grounds.
Orchard House sits within a superb tucked away position at the end of a quiet cul-de-sac just a short walk from the town centre. There are extensive gardens of just over half an acre made up of landscaped gardens as well as an orchard, all enjoying views across the old railway valley, the Gloucestershire countryside beyond and the rooftops of Tetbury town centre. Built in 2002 the house has been extensively modernised by it’s current owner to include a bespoke kitchen, new bathrooms and external landscaping to create a home that effortlessly flows between each living space.
The accommodation, entered via a storm porch, leads into a spacious and welcoming entrance hall with access to all reception rooms and an elegant turned staircase leading to the first floor. There is also a double walk in cupboard, ideal for hanging coats and storing shoes. The impressive kitchen/family room has a handmade, bespoke kitchen with solid wood cabinets, a built-in larder cabinet and integrated dishwasher all centred around an island unit. An Everhot range with three independently controlled ovens and induction hob takes pride of place, and there is also space for an American style fridge freezer. The other side of this generous room is currently used as a breakfast room and snug area which opens into a conservatory with a lantern roof and sliding doors leading out onto the rear terrace. The whole area is very sociable and during the warmer months flows well onto the rear patio terrace. Off the kitchen there is a utility room with space and plumbing for a washing machine and tumble dryer, a water softener, further wall and base cabinets with an inset sink. An external door leads to the side of the house.
Across the hall, the double aspect sitting room has a Bath stone surround fireplace with an inset wood burner making a real focal point of the room. Bi-fold doors at the far end of the room lead out onto the rear terrace. A further reception room at the front of the property is currently used as a formal dining room. One wall is dedicated to a built-in bespoke wall cabinet providing excellent storage with shelving and cupboard space. A large downstairs cloakroom completes the ground floor accommodation.
Upstairs the galleried landing area sits in the centre of the house with a spacious airing cupboard and access to the loft via a hatch. There are five bedrooms: four generous doubles and a single. Two of the rooms are accompanied by en-suite shower rooms and both enjoy views across the rear garden. There are fitted wardrobes in three of the rooms. Completing the first floor is the family bathroom with a contemporary freestanding bath and separate shower.
At the front of the property, sat within a Cotswold dry stone wall with automated gate, is a block paved driveway with parking for numerous vehicles plus a detached double garage with electric roller door. Beside the house is a well-stocked kitchen garden comprising a selection of raised beds.
Across the southerly facing rear aspect of the property is a patio terrace, bordered by beautiful herbaceous flower beds and enjoying an unspoilt view. An automated awning sits over the sitting room bi-fold doors making the perfect space for outdoor entertaining, whatever the weather. The extensive private gardens are predominantly laid to lawn with two wildflower areas and a small orchard edged with raised beds. At the far end of the garden is a gate to Herd Lane which provides an idyllic rural walk directly into Tetbury and beyond. There is plentiful outside storage too, with a recently added purpose-built timber shed adjacent to the house and a greenhouse sited at the far end of the garden.
We understand the property is connected to all mains services: gas, electricity, water and drainage. Council tax band G (Cotswold District Council).
