Evington Hill Farm is a striking and charming country home set within a glorious expanse of lawned gardens. Originally a Manor Court House, the main property is believed to date back to circa 1580 with later additions made. The property has been lovingly maintained and the appeal internally is the period detail you would expect of a property of its era with exposed beams, an inglenook fireplace and flagstone flooring. The accommodation is both practical and versatile and offers huge potential for usage.
The accommodation is split into two areas, beautifully combining two eras and allowing the ideal use for a B & B business or for an au pair or dependent relative.
Entrance is gained through a reception hall leading to the main house with its family room, dining room opening onto a sitting room, kitchen and lovely orangery with under floor heating and views over the garden. In addition is a conservatory, utility, and cloakroom. From the entrance hall a staircase leads to the master bedroom with en suite and two additional bedrooms, one with an en suite and the other bedroom is served by a further shower room. Three further bedrooms are accessed from the main staircase all with en suite shower rooms.
In addition to the main house are three cottages which have been successfully let over recent years, generating an income. The ideal and palpable purpose for the cottages is for holiday let. Of worthy note is the planning consent (that has now lapsed) that was granted to convert the three cottages and adjoining barn into four houses, offering exceptional development opportunities, under planning reference 10/01166/FUL. Alterations to existing residential unit and holiday cottage to form three separate dwellings. Conversion of residential outbuilding to provide one live/work unit.
The Leigh is a pretty and very accessible hamlet situated just four miles south of the market town of Tewkesbury and a mere five miles north west of Cheltenham. Nearby amenities can be found at Coombe Hill with its reputable public house and garage with shop. Much of the charm of Evington Hill Farm is due to its setting, sited in a private position enjoying the most glorious views of open countryside and with excellent access to beautiful walking and riding countryside with some excellent recreational pursuits available in the local area. Whilst distinctively rural, the hamlet itself is within easy commute to both Cheltenham, and Gloucester both of which provide exceptional schooling and cultural centres. Access to motorway networks are also excellent with M50 and M5 junctions within striking distance, making both a South/North commute easy.
Occupying a charming position, Evington Hill Farm is set beautifully within its plot, surrounded by mature formal gardens. This private setting has a real sense of space, with an expanse of lawn to the southern side of the plot and a vista to open countryside. The property is approached via a five bar gate with a driveway leading to a parking area for numerous cars. There are many interesting facets forming the grounds including a variety of fruit trees, ponds, mature flower borders and partial brick walling. To the edge of the property and within the grounds are a variety of outbuildings including a large barn, open fronted garaging, stable and a Dutch barn with original cow sheds, in addition to a hard tennis court.
