Village house

The Reading Room, formally The Church Room, was converted to an exacting standard by the current owners into a home in 2013 and is now a light and airy, contemporary property with all the benefits of modern design. Built of Cotswold stone, the Reading Room is approached through a pair of attractive wrought iron double gates that open onto a gravelled parking area to the side of the house. The flexible accommodation is arranged on 2 floors. The heart of the house is the 600 ft sq sitting/dining room/kitchen which has a vaulted ceiling, lime stone flooring, door into the garden, wood burning stove and fitted kitchen with extensive units and integrated appliances. At the end of this room is the utility room with adjoining WC. Also on the ground floor are 2 double bedrooms, one of which has an en-suite bathroom and dressing room whilst there is a bathroom next door to bedroom 3. From the hall, stairs rise to a landing, off which are 2 further bedrooms one of which is the principal bedroom with en-suite bathroom and extensive cupboard space.


The garden at The Reading room is private and mainly lawned with a high laurel hedge running along part of the boundary. To the side of the house is a large gravelled parking area with space for a number of cars. Adjacent to the parking area is a large timber built tandem garage with adjoining studio
