The Chipping Croft is a dream family property for anybody looking to buy in the Cotswolds. Just a short walk from the centre of popular market town Tetbury, the property is a Listed Georgian building which dates from the late 17th century and is mentioned in Pevsner’s Buildings of England.
The property has a splendid entrance hall with painted wooden staircase, two reception rooms, one with French windows leading out to the garden, and a good sized kitchen/breakfast room. There are three bedrooms and a bathroom on the first floor, including a lovely master bedroom with French windows leading out onto the balcony. On the second floor are three further double bedrooms, one en suite, and a shower room. There is also a cellar and a large conservatory with two sets of French doors leading out to the garden.
Outside are two Cotswold stone outbuildings which could have potential for ancillary accommodation subject to necessary consents.
The gardens have been a particular source of pride to past owners, the size, variety and privacy of which add immense value to the property. They have been open to the public for many years under the National Gardens scheme and for other charities. The gardens are divided into various areas: outside the hall and drawing room us a paved terrace within stone retaining walls, below which steps lead down to a sunken garden with a raised pond complete with fountain. Beyond this is a broad lawn edged by evergreen trees and shrubs.
The next level has a long gravelled walk leading back to the house, edged by clipped box hedging and rose-covered arches. There is also a pretty stone summerhouse along a path leading up to the walled vegetable garden and two further formal gardens beyond this from which steps lead back down to a charming rectangular raised lily pond outside the conservatory.
The property is in an excellent position near Cirencester and within easy commuting distance to Bath, Bristol and Cheltenham. Junction 17 of the M4 is about 10 miles drive and there are direct services to London Paddington from Kemble Station just eight miles away. There are excellent schools and sporting opportunities in the area and Tetbury in itself is a delightful market town within the heart of an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.
