The Property

This detached home lies in an elevated position on the north-eastern edge of the village and sits in large grounds extending to about 1.2 acres. There are far reaching rural views over the valley below and delightful sunsets, from which it takes it's name. Thought to date from the early 1800's with more recent additions, it was originally part of the adjacent Charlton Park Estate. The current owners have been in occupation for almost 21 years and added a substantial extension in 2005 creating a wonderful light and airy kitchen/breakfast/family room, with an Aga, which is naturally the heart of the home. The property benefits from UPVC double glazed windows throughout, and mains gas is connected, which is unusual in this semi-rural location.

The Accommodation

Off the entrance porch is a lobby, with access to a useful dry cellar under the sitting room. There are doors either side to both of the reception rooms, which feature log burning stoves. The spacious kitchen/family room at the rear has a part vaulted and beamed ceiling, with natural light from all sides, including patio doors opening to the garden at the front. The oak kitchen units are by a local firm, Woodchester Cabinets Makers, and have granite work surfaces and an island unit. The Aga is gas fired and there is an integrated dishwasher. Leading off the kitchen there is a larder, cloakroom and dual aspect study/home office. Completing the ground floor there is a utility room with a WC and the gas boiler, and a secondary front entrance with a deep coat hanging cupboard. On the first floor, there are two double bedrooms, one with a built-in wardrobe and a Victorian grate. The bathroom has a separate shower and on the opposite side of the landing is the airing cupboard. On the top floor, there are two dual aspect attic bedrooms with fitted storage cupboards and exposed beams.
