Half Moon House is a very distinctive Grade II Listed property dating from the 19th Century. Built of mellow Cotswold stone with attractive sash windows and deep window sills, the property was formerly four cottages but became one dwelling in the 20th Century. The property was significantly remodelled 25 years ago, and more recently planning permission was granted to remove the existing kitchen, cloakroom and utility room and build an extension on the rear of the property replacing these rooms. This planning permission has now lapsed. More details are available from the agent. The property is approached by stone steps that lead up from a parking area to a paved terrace from where the front door opens into an entrance hall with doors to the cloakroom and utility room, which has access to the garden. Further doors lead into the sitting room and the kitchen/breakfast room which is fully fitted with floor and wall mounted units, extensive work surfaces, built in dish washer and Stoves electric range with extractor over. From both the hall and the kitchen/breakfast room doors lead into the sitting room from where the staircase rises to the first floor. A door leads through into the principal reception room which is currently used as a dining room and drawing room with central doors to both the front and rear of the house. There are fire places with marble surround and mantels at both ends of this room. Through the drawing room area is a study with open fireplace with built-in storage to one side. From the sitting room a staircase rises to the first floor landing with a galleried area incorporating two window seats, off which is a bedroom and a bathroom. A curved corridor leads along the back of the house off which is a walk-in linen cupboard. Also off the corridor are two further en-suite bedrooms, one of which is entered through a useful lobby area.

Outside

Half Moon House stands in approximately half an acre of mainly lawned garden and contains a number of mature trees and shrubs. Along the back of the house is a gravelled terrace from where two sets of stone steps lead up to the lawn. A path leads through to another area of garden. To the side of the house is a parking area with space for a number of cars and an adjacent double garage with a pair of up and over doors.

Situation

Maugersbury is a small rural hamlet, lying off the beaten track but less than a mile south east of the centre of Stow-on-the-Wold. It enjoys all the benefits of living in a small rural community yet is within walking distance of local shopping facilities. Made up largely of period Cotswold stone houses and cottages it is surrounded by rolling Cotswold countryside. Oxford, Stratford-upon-Avon and Cheltenham provide the main shopping and cultural centres for the area whilst there are main line railway stations at Kingham and Moreton-in-Marsh both about 4 miles away providing regular trains to London Paddington direct and to Marylebone with a change at Oxford. Daylesford Organic and Soho Farmhouse are 3.5 and 16.5 miles respectively, whilst the village of Longborough is nearby with its renowned Opera.

Directions

From Stow-on-the-Wold take the A429 towards Chipping Norton and take the right turn signed to Maugersbury by The Bell Inn. On entering the village bear right at the little green and immediately left with the gates to The Dower House on your right. Proceed down the lane and follow the road around to the right. Half Moon House will be found on your right hand side.
