Blockley, Moreton-in-Marsh, Gloucestershire. GL56 9BW

Guide price

Bedrooms: 3
Positioned in a concealed well screened location with predominantly easterly and southerly aspects towards Blockley village green, this deceptively spacious detached two storey three bedroom village residence provides a homely country retreat whilst being located in the centre of one of the most popular villages in the North Cotswolds.

Undoubtedly converted from a barn many years ago and still featuring some antique roof timbers and exposed stone walls, the property now has three ground floor reception rooms, one being the third bedroom, three bathrooms, one being ensuite to the master bedroom incorporating a separate dressing room, a spacious diner kitchen and a separate utility room.

Intriguingly, the property also has a stone built two room artist's studio which could also be an office suite.

The property has gas fired central heating, part renewed double glazing, a large south facing conservatory extension to the front with direct access on to the cosy living room with a homely real fireplace and a large built in window seat.

Externally the gardens extend on three sides with a range of patios for alfresco dining, bounded by stone walls and screened with a bank of mature foliage. The property also has the all important off street parking for two vehicles which is rare so close to the village centre.

The property is located opposite the village green although because it is so well screened many people will not even know it exists even though it is only a few strides from Station Road and the Great Western Arms. Across the village green there is the well stocked village shop and the now well renowned Blockley cafe which doubles as a fine dining restaurant several evenings a week. The village has its own primary school and is within the catchment area for Chipping Campden school. St Peter and Paul's church is not only attractive to look at but is also famous for being the centrepiece for the BBC series Father Brown in which the village is known as Kembleford.

Blockley is located midway between the Cotswold cafe society of Chipping Campden and the more traditional market town of Moreton in Marsh where there are rail links to Oxford and London Paddington. The village is in an area of outstanding natural beauty where a great many walks can be enjoyed direct from the property in the surrounding countryside and where the High Street terminates in Dovedale woods.
