A rare opportunity to acquire a charming characterful home with stunning views in Blockley. This beautiful stone-built property, which once was the village bank, is situated on the High Street in the quintessential village of Blockley. The unique property has been used as a family home for many years and would be a wonderful purchase for anyone who treasures a beautiful outlook. The property still retains many of its original features such as the exposed stone walls, high ceilings, beams and pillars in the atmospheric dining room, which is believed to have historically housed the bank vault. Entry to the house is via a glass porch, a more recent addition, which then leads through to the entry hall with understairs storage cupboard. On your left you will find the spacious living room with solid wood flooring, wood panelling, large fireplace/gas fire wood burner and floor to ceiling windows/doors. These lead out onto the terrace with spectacular views beyond, arguably one of the best views in the Cotswolds. The large kitchen/breakfast room with beautiful exposed brickwork is also located on the ground floor and is fully fitted with plenty of storage and boasts a gas AGA. Off the kitchen, steps lead up to the dramatic dining room, a super room for entertaining guests and still featuring the original vault pillars. A utility room, toilet, storage room and pantry run parallel alongside the dining room. On the first floor there is a large double master bedroom with two fitted double wardrobes, stunning panoramic views over the countryside and 'Jack & Jill' bathroom/en-suite. There is a large central open study with airing cupboard and boiler, which potentially could be adapted to form an additional bedroom and there is a further double bedroom with en-suite bathroom. On the second floor you will find another double bedroom with
pretty views towards the village church and a separate bathroom and cupboard. Outside you are welcomed by delightful split level mature gardens and the terrace, where there is a seating area with breath-taking countryside views. Below the terrace there is a workshop, storage, a secret garden and down a further set of stone stairs there is a secluded manicured very private lawn area. There is also parking for up to 2 cars on the driveway. The property is council tax band F, and has gas central heating.
