Welcome to Craycroft, a home that originally dates to the early 1600's yet throughout the years has been extended and modernised yet has managed to retain the charm and character of yesteryear.
Having owned the property for nearly seven years, the current owners have further enhanced the home and have delicately balanced a modern finish with the original features. Add in a mature and established gardens of 0.8 acre, integral garaging, an external workshop and home office as well as being located within a highly desirable Gloucestershire village, this is a home that comes with a high recommendation to view.
Internally the home offers a wealth of accommodation and on the ground floor are two formal reception rooms, these being the living room and the dining room. Both rooms enjoy open fireplaces and are full of period features to include exposed beams and stonework. In between the two rooms is a large bay fronted window which not only throws plenty of natural light into the rooms, with the addition of the window seat, this is a perfect spot to relax and enjoy a good book.
The kitchen/breakfast room is a wonderful space and in recent times has undergone a refurb and so now features a wealth of fitted units in Duck Egg blue, finished with black granite work surface and is complimented by a wealth of integral units, which includes the freestanding Range cooker.
At each end of the building, is an integral garage. To the left of the building is a large, double garage, which benefits from light and power. The garage to the right of the building is accessed from the properties entrance hall. Prior to stepping into the garage is a cloakroom area and because of this, we feel that someone may wish to convert this space either into a formal reception room, studio or even possibly a downstairs bedroom with en suite facilities.
Upstairs, the accommodation is arranged over two floors and dependant on how one wishes to use the accommodation, is either a four or five double bedroom home.
On the first floor is the master bedroom which is a wonderful space. Enjoying double aspect windows, the room is flooded with natural light whilst to the rear of the room, the current owners have created a walk-in dressing room which in turn leads to a modern, three-piece en suite shower room.
Furthermore, on this floor is a further double bedroom which enjoys views across the mature front gardens and there is also a three-piece, white family bathroom which is located to the rear of the property.
The room found directly to the middle of the building is spacious and full of the charm and character in keeping with the ground floor reception rooms. This room can either be used as an additional bedroom, ensuring the home has five double rooms, or could quite easily be a playroom for the children.
On the upper floor to the left hand side of the home is a further double bedroom which also has an interlinking room which the current owner uses as his study, yet could be a dressing room for the room, or even a reading room/TV room. To the right of the room, is a four-piece bathroom which enjoys a free standing, clawed foot bath and double walk in shower.
Completing the properties accommodation is Bedroom five, which the current owners use as a bedroom for the grandchildren and what a room it is.
Accessed from a wooden staircase, the room enjoys windows to three aspects and due to the height, enjoys a wonderful outlook from whichever window one chooses to look out of.
Stepping outside, the gardens are as much of a delight as the house, full of colour and maturity, this is a space that any keen gardener would want to be in. To the front, the borders are well stocked and there are quiet, seating areas dotted throughout where one can catch the sun as it revolves around the property. To the rear, the garden is less formal and features a recently added pond, wildflowers, a vegetable section as well as large fruit cage.
Finally, and completing all that this wonderful home has to offer is the external home office which benefits from light and power and a wooden veranda, which enjoys great views over the garden. Added onto the rear of the home office is a brick construction workshop.
Very rarely does a home of this stature, with this level of character and this amount of garden come onto the market in this village so to avoid disappointment, please contact the office to arrange your viewing.
