When the vendors Mr & Mrs Fitzgerald-Guy moved down to the Cotswolds 4 years ago they initially had their hearts set on a traditional North Cotswold home, ideally a barn conversion in a rural setting. However they quickly found that the properties on offer at the time just didn’t appeal to them. ‘’The properties didn’t work for us as a family, there was no flow, you often had to go through one room to access another.’’ Although they had not initially intended to purchase a new home they were both drawn to the ‘’wonderful feeling of space, light and the all important flow’’ of the Linden ‘Lyneham’ house. Other important considerations were that the children could walk to school, there is a strong community spirit in the area and with the countless walks and views on offer it feels very rural despite being centrally located and easy to commute to larger cities including London.
This substantial detached Cotswold stone family house was built by award-winning developers Linden Homes in 2016 and is one of the larger properties on the development. The accommodation briefly comprises; a spacious entrance hall with stairs rising to the first floor and doors radiating off to all the principal rooms. There is a sitting room with inset wood-burning stove and bi-fold doors leading out to the rear garden. Of particular note is the Kitchen and open-plan family area which is the hub of the house, again with bi-folds to the rear garden and a range of integrated appliances. There is also a dining room with a bay window overlooking the front garden, separate study, cloakroom and utility room. On the first floor there are five double bedrooms, two with en-suite facilities, and a family bathroom.
Outside there is a double garage with a double width driveway to the front and an attractive enclosed rear garden initially laid to patio with the remainder being lawned. As the property is situated at the end of a cul-de-sac it enjoys a quiet location with no passing traffic and benefits from open views across neighbouring countryside to the front.
Internal inspection of this desirable family home is essential to fully appreciate the quality and scale of accommodation on offer as well as its highly appealing ‘tucked away’ location.
