Further Information

Shire View is set in what is arguably one of the finest positions of any home within the beautiful village of Hartpury. With its unspoilt and private setting, this handsome and imposing country residence enjoys some of the most exceptional panoramic views over the surrounding countryside and hills beyond. The unique and tranquil spot, in addition to the opportunities this fine home offers, is unquestionably much of the charm. Principally, the home was two cottages merged into one substantial house which over more recent years has been cleverly redesigned to offer impressive and balanced accommodation that flows with ease. Today’s home is beautifully modernised with considerate thought given to retaining the character features with the benefit of a separate one-bedroom annexe ideal for ancillary accommodation.

Entrance is gained through a reception hall with flagstone flooring and underfloor heating throughout the ground floor. The reception rooms are well placed to either side of the house with the majority enjoying the most glorious views of the gardens and open fields beyond. The kitchen is fitted with integrated bespoke units and a central island under granite worktops. This room has been designed to be the hub of the house opening into the dining room with a sperate utility and cloakroom adjacent. The sitting room is a lovely room with an inglenook fireplace, a Clearview log burner, double aspect views and double doors opening onto the garden. There is a delightful snug with a Clearview log burner. A home office completes the accommodation on this floor.

The master bedroom suite has been designed to take full advantage of the views with double doors leading to an outside balcony, there is a built wardrobe and an en suite shower room. There are three further bedrooms all served by a family bathroom..

The annexe is completely self-contained and accessed from outside. This useful space is ideal for a dependent relative or au pair equally this could provide a rental income for students at the college or for the local stud. This well kept and appointed annexe comprises one bedroom, a sitting room with access to outside, kitchen and shower room.

Shire View is approached via a long driveway, leading to the house. The approach is just glorious, the drive meanders through the grounds with the house positioned beautifully at the bottom of the plot. The two purpose-built barns are of considerable size as such these present as a blank canvas for several opportunities including, classic cars, home office, music studio, or subject to planning, further accommodation. Next to the house and adjacent to the annex is a large garage with ample storage above, which could also be converted (STP). The gardens, at circa 1.6 acres, are a real feature to the home, designed in a more formal fashion, mainly laid to lawn with an abundance of shrubs and mature trees.

Of worthy note – by separate negotiation the owner is willing to sell two acres of paddock land and a purpose-built barn. This is a short walk from Shire View.
