Handsome Todenham Hall has been extensively refurbished.

‘For envy too small, for contempt too great’ is the motto inscribed— with the date 1777—above the front door of a north Cotswold gem, Grade II-listed Todenham Hall, a handsome, Georgian former rectory set in 11 acres of gardens, grounds and paddocks, in the village of Todenham, three miles north-east of Moreton-in-Marsh in Gloucestershire.

For sale through Strutt & Parker at a guide price of £4.5m, the property fuses classicism with a fully integrated web-enabled multi media/entertainment system together with touch screen controls for heating, security, entertainment and mood lighting to all rooms.

Extensively refurbished in 2006, the house, which has 17th-century or earlier origins, offers 5,010sq ft of living space on three floors, including a reception/staircase hall, three impressive reception rooms, a fabulous bespoke kitchen/breakfast room, six bedrooms, four bathrooms, a playroom/cinema room and a bell tower.

It comes with a substantial, two-bedroom coach house, likewise restored and enlarged in 2006.
