Wild Rose Cottage, in the picturesque Cotswolds village of Clapton-on-the-Hill, is a lovely, spacious, three or four bedroom detached home with stunning views over countryside, looking down over the Windrush Valley towards Bourton on the Water. The property is a beautiful family home offering flexible accommodation, having three good sized bedrooms and family bathroom on the first floor, as well as a fourth bedroom (or study if preferred) and shower room on the ground floor. There are two good reception rooms as well as a sociable kitchen-diner, as well as there being workroom (converted from the garage) and a stone-built outbuilding, timber shed, and well maintained gardens to front, side and rear.
The front door opens into a welcoming Entrance Hallway, with plenty of room to hang coats and stash away shoes, including a good sized cupboard for storage. There are two relatively equal-sized Living Rooms, one front and one rear. The front room features a fireplace with a solid fuel stove, with windows to three walls allowing spectacular views over the valley. The rear Living Room provides an excellent second space for families to spread out, and has sliding doors opening onto the patio and rear garden. There is a well fitted, modern Kitchen with a range of cupboard units and worktops as well as integrated appliances and a larder-style cupboard. The Kitchen is open to a Dining Room area at the rear, a light and bright room being glazed around its three external walls, with glazed door leading into the garden.
Also on the ground floor is either a good sized office if desired, or Bedroom 4, being next to the large Shower Room which features a double shower cubicle, wash basin and wc.
On the first floor there are three good sized double Bedrooms, each with built in storage, and a large Family Bathroom which includes free-standing bath, separate shower cubicle, wc and two wash basins.
Outside the property, there is pull in driveway parking for several vehicles, and gardens wrapping round the front, side and rear of the house. The gardens offer both patio and lawned areas, a range of planted beds and borders, a solid Cotswold-stone-and-block built outbuilding with light and power, and a timber shed. There is a door from the garden into the rear of the garage, which has been converted into a workroom, with a partition wall erected at the very front that conceals the garage door (which is still therefore extant at the front of the garage itself, should any future owners wish to reinstate its use as a traditional garage).
Wild Rose Cottage is set in the picturesque village of Clapton on the Hill, firmly within the Cotswolds Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty - and this home really does get the benefit of that Outstanding Natural Beauty, enjoying incredible views to the front across countryside, looking down to Bourton on the Water. Bourton is just a few minutes' drive, or a manageable walk across the valley on public and permitted footpaths, steering mainly clear of roadways... so, if it takes your fancy, there are a number of pubs within walking distance! As well as this, there are several good primary schools in the vicinity, as well as the Cotswold Academy in Bourton on the Water, which has been rated as Outstanding by Ofsted. There are of course a number of highly regarded independent schools in the area also. As well as Bourton on the Water, other sizeable villages and towns that are within easy reach, offering a wide range of shops, facilities and amenities, include Northleach, Burford and Cirencester, and of course both Cheltenham and Oxford.
EPC Rating: E
The property is double glazed and benefits from LPG fired central heating.
