This charming 17th century Cotswold stone house has been extended over the years to include a former barn and a cottage. With a wealth of traditional features such as open fireplaces, stone flooring and exposed beams, it has excellent family living space and great character. The front door opens into a large light hallway with a modern flagstone floor. Ahead, in the former barn, is the main drawing room, an impressive space with extensive bookshelves, French windows on to the south-facing garden, and a staircase leading to three of the bedrooms.
At the far end of the hall, the kitchen/breakfast/family room is cosy and comfortable with a wood-burning stove, elm flooring, fitted units, and a back door to a small terrace which meets the village road. The hallway part of the kitchen leads out to a pretty, larger terrace which is lovely for al-fresco dining.
Most delightfully, all the ground floor rooms have doors to the terraces or gardens. The original house comprises a large reception room with a sitting room and dining area, lit by sash windows, some with working shutters. This room also opens on to the front, southfacing terrace. Above, the master bedroom has a wonderful high vaulted ceiling which gives a great feeling of space. It has a separate dressing area and en-suite bathroom. The former 5th bedroom on the second floor is currently approached by a ladder but a staircase could easily be re-instated. Of the three further bedrooms (approached from the drawing room), one has an en suite shower room and there is a further bathroom.
Chapel House sits within delightful mature gardens. There is a formal area to the front of the house with lawns and mixed borders enclosed within beech hedging. Beyond are further lawns and a vegetable garden, with a copse providing a mix of mature trees and shrubs. The paddock has superb views over the adjoining Cotswold countryside and a field shelter on one side. Just beyond the paddock on the adjoining Miserden Estate is a public footpath enabling access to beautiful country walks.
A gravelled driveway leads along the side of the house to a parking area. Adjoining this are a range of timber outbuildings comprising a stable (currently used as a tool shed), studio, workshop and office. These buildings are ripe for modernisation and, subject to planning permission, could make a wonderful new building.
