A unique detached Cotswold stone home set in just under half an acre in the centre of the village. Offering scale, character and seclusion, Orchard View is an enchanting property with beautiful features and an exceptional garden and grounds making it a real "lifestyle" home.
The accommodation is versatile and laid out mainly over the ground floor, with the first floor given over to a principle suite including twin dressing rooms. Throughout the house there is an abundance of natural stone and characterful wood beams and as such it feels very homely and welcoming, whilst retaining some stylish touches and useability. Of particular note in this vein is the large living room with its attractive fireplace and views over the gardens. Outside things only get better; a long driveway leads to the front of the house and beyond, where there is parking for several cars and an open sided double garage with power and an EV charging point. Behind this is a garden store and wood framed greenhouse which also has power and water. The gardens are laid out in intricate fashion, with incredibly well-maintained and stocked beds, grassed areas and several patio areas which make use of the light at all different times of the day. Overall, we think this is an exceptional home of immense character offering the purchaser a wonderful living and entertaining space in the very heart of this hugely popular village.
Ilmington is a pretty, unspoilt Cotswold village nestling at the foot of the Campden hills and was voted one of the best places to live in The Sunday Times 2021. The village offers some spectacular views across open countryside and houses some beautiful buildings, the vast majority of which are constructed from local stone. It is known for the many footpaths that crisscross the village and for the remnants of its historic, multi-variety apple orchards. The village boasts two pubs including the award winning Howard Arms restaurant and bed & breakfast, a church, village hall, thriving primary school, community shop and cafe and a large, well-supported playing field, which includes a playground and tennis courts.
