Screened in the cloak of mature foliage from which the property takes its name, and positioned in the centre of a 0.4 acre plot approached via a long, private driveway, this detached, two storey, 8 bedroomed residence has been run as a successful bed and breakfast operation for many years and would be equally as appealing as a large family home.

Built in the 1980s to a high standard and subsequently both at the side and rear, the first floor accommodation is now divided into two with separate staircases, with each of the spacious bedrooms having their own en suite facilities. There is an expansive kitchen extension to the rear, with a good complement of units and appliances, joined by an open decking area to a large conservatory that is currently used as a residents' lounge. There is a particularly attractive central dining room which connects the two sections of the property, and as a family home, this room would make a superb reception room.

Many rooms within the property are dual aspected, taking full advantage of the exceptional views over the well-manicured, landscaped gardens, with some also having exposed beams and batoned ceilings, adding character to the rooms. The south wing of the property has an attractive owners' living room, with exposed stone wall including an integrated ammonite fossil. This area has a study, the diner-kitchen, utility room and three bedrooms and three bathrooms on the first floor. This section of the property alone could accommodate a good sized family in its own right.

The north wing of the property has two ground floor bedrooms with private patios and three further bedrooms on the first floor.

Technically speaking, the property has double-glazing, gas-fired central heating from three boilers and externally there is not only a double garage, but a purpose-built one bedroomed apartment above.

The grounds can easily accommodate parking for eight vehicles, there is a beautifully landscaped area around a Koi Carp pool and a more informal, enclosed garden on the opposite side.

Only to be described further in superlatives, the property can only be appreciated by internal inspection, and early viewing is recommended.

The Business:

The eight letting rooms in the property are available at around £100 per night and over the many years of trading, there is now substantial repeat business, particularly around the Cheltenham Festival and the Longborough Operatic Festival, with many guests coming from the U.S.

The turnover over the last two years, bearing in mind the owners are looking to wind the business down, has been just under £80,000 per annum, creating a net profit of around £33,000.

The flat over the garage has been let on a longer-term basis for some individual clients.

Accounts are available to bone fide enquirers on request.
