This attractive family home is offered to the market after an extensive refurbishment programme, meticulously designed with a mix of classic contemporary finishes sympathetic to the overall character and heritage of the building. Internally, the stylish finish embraces the old and the new, with most of the principal rooms benefitting from impressive garden views and high ceilings throughout the downstairs. The grand oak front door invites you into the entrance hall, off which are the main downstairs rooms; a large wall panelled dining room with a mullion window and a stone fireplace with woodburning stove. A bespoke built fully fitted kitchen with a range of integrated appliances and handmade cabinets with granite worktops. There is a downstairs cloakroom and an elegant, double aspect wall panelled sitting room a fireplace with woodburning stove and large windows with a wonderful garden view. At the eastern end of the building is an annexe, with its own generous hallway, fitted kitchen doors leading to a stone out building with a utility room. There is an additional sitting room that could be used as a ground floor fifth bedroom and shower room. The existing layout lends itself to be easily separated, or remain as part of the house as required. There are two staircases that lead to the first floor, one from the annexe leading directly to one of the first floor double bedrooms, and a main staircase from the main hallway. The first floor continues the theme of space and light, offering four double bedrooms, a shower room and large modern bathroom. Complimenting this impressive house further is the stunning garden frontage. The main approach is via solid wood electric gates, with a winding paved driveway leading around the garden to the front of the house. The landscaped garden is privately enclosed within a privet hedge and Cotswold stone boundary, mainly laid to lawn with well stocked flower beds and borders. A contemporary fountain offers an additional focal point, especially at night with garden lights, with a surrounding path leading to the main house and the large patio. At the north end of the garden is a stone summerhouse with power and WiFi, a versatile space suitable for a number of uses. Burford is an old Cotswold market town with many historical connections.
