The most beautiful, detached period home with lovely gardens, parking and a garage in a quiet spot to the edge of sought-after Charlton Kings.
This enchanting, detached house rests in the most beautiful gardens in a charming setting at the edge of sought-after Charlton Kings. It extends to over c2271 Sq Ft internally and has been the subject of a detailed restoration by the current owners, in a wonderful marriage of modern living and 16th-century elegance. Steeped in local history, as one of the first properties to be built in this lovely village as the former bakery, the house beautifully combines classical elements with a more country, cottage interior style whilst remaining unlisted.
The layout is traditional of its era with all the detail one would expect of its period structure. The formal sitting room and more informal snug, with access to the generous home office, are positioned to the front of the house to either side of a lovely hallway. Both rooms are wonderfully light with inglenook fireplaces and beamed ceilings. From the sitting room, double doors open to the wonderful kitchen and breakfast room. As with any of the best family homes, this is the hub of the house set to the rear with direct access and views over the garden. Arranged in a more open plan style with an excellent range of country style units with a large utility room and a porch/cloakroom with access to the side gardens. On the ground floor is a bathroom, which is a traditional and useful feature of this era.
On the first floor are four bedrooms. The master bedroom has an en suite bathroom and fitted wardrobes either side of a chimney. Whilst a shower room serves the remaining three bedrooms.
In all, a very special house on a lovely quiet road. Due to its architectural merit and its position, so close to the thriving village and excellent schools, it makes for an ideal family home.
Forming part of a charming street scene, number 60 stands in a prominent position just before the road drops to the ford. The property is framed with an immaculate perimeter brick walling and to the side, is the road for parking which is privately owned by the house which leads to the garage. The main grounds are set to the rear, the prettiest and most private of gardens, made up predominantly of an area of level lawn flanking the patio terrace with mature borders and trees, although arranged to be easily maintained its a place to sit and enjoy. Within the garden is a useful summerhouse, ideal for storage or as a home office.
School Road is an incredibly special street discreetly tucked away in the heart of Charlton Kings. A quiet road with very little vehicular or foot traffic, it is lined with attractive homes running down to a ford, making the street scene one of delightful character. It is a peaceful location, in the heart of the village and within a short stroll of the boutique shops at Sixways and those on Lyefield Road. The house offers a pretty short cut and walking route to both the sought-after Charlton Kings Juniors and Balcarras secondary school. These two schools are widely known with Balcarras reputed for being one of the top schools in the country. This, and the vibrant community on offer, has helped to retain the prestigious status Charlton Kings holds as one of the best addresses within the area. The location also has excellent access onto the A40 for Oxford and London and Cheltenham town centre is only 4 miles away.
