THE PROPERTY

A stunning and substantial four-bedroom contemporary detached property which has been recently extended and finished to an exceptionally high standard providing over 3,000 square feet of living space. Set within grounds of just over half an acre in a private, peaceful position along the desirable Baunton Lane in Cirencester.

Originally a chalet bungalow, the current vendors have thoughtfully extended the property with the addition of a first floor to create a spacious family home with flexible living accommodation.

The property is entered through an impressive glazed, vaulted and galleried entrance hall with a ceramic tiled floor, chandelier and bespoke oak staircase making a real statement. From the entrance hall there is direct access to the sitting room and to the kitchen.

Double doors opposite the entrance lead to the triple aspect, spacious sitting room. The focal point of the room is the Jetmaster open fireplace set in a Bath stone surround. A sliding door provides access to the terrace and garden beyond. From this room there are doors through to the kitchen and dining room.

The open plan kitchen/breakfast room has a limestone effect ceramic tiled floor with an excellent range of wall and base cabinets and a free-standing movable island unit. Integral appliances comprise, a double oven and fridge and there is space and plumbing for a dishwasher. This room enjoys views looking over the grounds to the front of the property and has an open plan feel as it adjoins the family room to create a great space to entertain family and friends. The family room is bright and welcoming thanks to its dual aspect with two sets of sliding doors leading out to the rear garden and two rooflight windows and is south facing. This room benefits from underfloor heating.

From the kitchen a door leads to the boot room with plenty of space to kick off boots and hang coats and a handy cloakroom. There is a practical original quarry tile floor, which continues through to the utility room, with further storage, space for a tumble dryer and washing machine and an external door leading to the side garden. At the far end of the boot room an external door leads to the front of the property and an internal door leads to the garage which has power and light.

A hallway off to the right of the main entrance provides access to the dining room, with French doors out to the terrace and a door through to the sitting room. Also, along this hallway is the dual aspect guest bedroom with walk in wardrobe and en suite shower room. Following the hallway to the right there is a family bathroom comprising a Jacuzzi bath, shower, wash hand basin and low-level WC and to complete the ground floor accommodation is a dual aspect study with views over the front garden. This wing of the house could easily be adapted into an annex (subject to building regulations) for a dependent relative.

On the first floor there is a beautiful and spacious master suite which enjoys a dual aspect. The room has a contemporary en suite bathroom comprising a free-standing slipper bath, twin wash hand basins, large shower and low-level WC. There is also a dressing room and a further storage cupboard. There are two further double bedrooms on this floor both with en suite shower rooms and built-in wardrobes.

GROUNDS AND GARDENS

The property has grounds of just over half an acre and is approached along a private drive and on through a five-bar gate set within a drystone wall then onto a long sweeping gravel driveway leading to a generous turning area and parking for numerous vehicles in front of the property leading to the garage and car port. The gardens are predominantly laid to lawn with mature trees and mixed herbaceous borders providing a high degree of privacy to the property and the extensive gardens surround it. At the rear of the property there is a gravel terrace with raised decking area providing the ideal spot for al fresco dining overlooking the rear lawn. To the south side of the house is the original kitchen garden with a very sheltered patio area, summer house and green house. There is also a large timber outbuilding with power and light divided into two rooms currently used as a hobby room and gym. No matter what time of day or time of year, there is always a sunny spot to be found in the grounds.
