This is the most delightful example of a grade II listed detached family home set in the heart of Slimbridge. Over the years the property has been extended and offers great charm where ever you look. The property sits central to a large plot of 0.54 of acre offering mature gardens, ideal for a growing family.

Internally a wealth of character throughout. Approached from a private driveway leading to a large area of hardstanding with a double garage. From the side entrance, you lead into an entrance porch/boot room into the entrance hall. A study or playroom and the most stunning sitting room and formal dining area with inglenook fireplace and a log burner offering a wealth of beams and features throughout this room and views to the garden. A sun room overlooking the grounds with doors leading to the terrace. A large fitted kitchen with an aga, having bespoke units, granite worktops and window seat overlooking the garden with dining area. A large utility room with downstairs cloakroom completes the ground floor. To the first floor, from the main landing, master bedroom with fitted wardrobes and double elevations providing great light with a modern en-suite. A family bathroom on this landing. Opening up to the most delightful open space, ideal for play area or library, with window seat overlooking the grounds and views to the village church, with a stone fireplace. Doors lead to two further double bedrooms. Stairs lead to the second floor which provides two further double bedrooms with fantastic far reaching views and a cloakroom. A further door leads from the first floor landing space to a charming enclosed spiralling staircase with exposed stonework to all walls, leading back to the lounge. Internally the character is in all rooms, from sash windows to ornate oriel windows, exposed stonework, beams and a magnificent front door in the sitting room which we believe dates back to the mid/late 1500's. The grounds surround the property and are laid to lawn with an enclosed vegetable garden. The boundaries to three sides are walled providing a stunning backdrop.

From the driveway, a detached barn that has undergone modernisation over the years to create a large office, a double garage with loft space and fantastic storage.

A further detached building with rear store room and to the front leading into an ideal hobby room with stairs leading to the first floor, providing a further room.
