  • Bedrooms: 4
Positioned to enjoy open aspects over countryside in three directions and the southernmost one of four exclusively positioned semi-detached houses midway between Moreton in Marsh and Evenlode, this deceptively spacious two storey, four bedroomed country villa was built in 1938 on a substantial plot creating an aspirational family retreat.

The property has the original parquet flooring in the sizeable hallway, two Farmington stone fireplaces to the large reception rooms, an ornate carved ballustrade and highlighted picture rails.

The more contemporary refinements of modern day living have been added include an antique oak style fitted kitchen with a good complement of units, ample space for a breakfast table, there are oak style predominantly triple glazed windows, four piece family bathroom suite and built in wardrobes to all bedrooms.

The twin substantial bay windows face west to the front over gardens towards open countryside, there are southerly views to the side and an open easterly aspect to the rear over gardens and farmlands.

Further attractions include a conservatory style garden room on the southern elevation, two garages and a 90ft driveway with off street parking for several vehicles.

The property is located to the east of Moreton in Marsh in a truly rural location yet only a mile from the centre of this bustling north Cotswold market town.
