  • Bedrooms: 3
Centrally located in one of the most quintessential Cotswold villages, located mid-way between the famous market towns of Stow on the Wold, Chipping Norton and Moreton-in-Marsh, this stylishly appointed, detached two-storey, three bedroomed country residence has been enhanced and embellished by the present owners over the last ten years and should be viewed internally to be fully appreciated.

Originally a pair of Victorian cottages, each with their own side entrances, with a small barn to the rear, the accommodation has now been combined and connected to provide 2,700ft sq of accommodation including an eclectic living-kitchen with galleried landing above. There are two staircases within the property: the front one leading to two double bedrooms and two bathrooms. There is a further double bedroom and bathroom on the ground floor, forming either a guest suite or providing adaptable accommodation for more than one generation.

Whilst there are two reception rooms to the front, the property's piece de resistance is the central living-kitchen, with its 14ft high apex ceiling and peninsula conservatory dining area, all creating a light and airy ambience with a minstrel's gallery or second study above.

The property has a state of the art oil-fired heating system and incorporates a pressurised hot water system, as well as piped underfloor heating to the living-kitchen and electric underfloor heating to the three separate bathrooms.

The property is located on a 0.2 acre plot with a southerly-aspect over trees to the front and vehicular access along a private lane to the rear, with ample parking, turning and hardstanding. With its closest grocery store being Daylesford Organics and Kingham railway station within a two mile drive, Adlestrop provides a Cotswold sanctuary for those looking for either a main or supplementary home in one of the quietest parts of middle England. The Cotswold cafe society of Stow on the Wold and Chipping Norton are between three and four miles away, as are a host of local eateries in some of the surrounding villages.
