Bungalow For Sale in Banks Fee Lane

Springside has been in the ownership of one family for the last twenty-five years and will no doubt spark competing interest, occupying a particularly desirable position within the much-favoured traditional North Cotswold hill village of Longborough. Situated at the top of a tranquil lane with a footpath to one side leading immediately onto open countryside and within walking distance of the Primary school, village pub, church, coffee shop and store, it is hard to imagine a lovelier setting.  

Nestled serenely in a generous plot set back from the lane behind a gated entrance, bordered by a low stream fed by a natural spring, banked by a beautiful shaded woodland glade with generously terraced landscaped gardens enjoying a great deal of natural privacy, Springside was built in the 1960s as one of a pair of detached architect-designed homes by renowned local firm Williams.

The present owners have greatly improved the original presentation and size of accommodation, extending considerably and adding charm, character and solidity to the interiors, including a Trefurn hand-built bespoke kitchen, stone-tiled and oak floors, with a Hornton stone open fireplace in the main sitting room, latch-and-braced oak doors, exposed beams, French doors and latticed windows.

The whole providing a capacious and eminently comfortable family home with flexible living spaces arranged to make the very most of its wonderful position, an open-plan formal sitting room, study and sun room look out over delightful views of stream and wood whilst a separate dining hall, kitchen/breakfast room, family room/ kitchenette and lower-ground-floor informal family room all have double French doors opening out onto the terraces and garden. 

A two-storey extension opening from the kitchen/ breakfast room could be a totally self-sufficient annexe with a double bedroom above that has sufficient space to install another en-suite shower room. On the main ground floor leading off the dining hall, a bedroom wing hosts a master bedroom with en-suite shower room, two further double bedrooms and separate family bathroom. 
There is still plenty of further scope given the size of the footprint and inherent beauty of the plot to upgrade and enhance this property. Subject to the relevant planning consents, the attic spaces would be perfect for further bedrooms and bathrooms, taking full advantage of the stunning views looking over the boundary tree line towards adjoining fields and onto the distant hills beyond. 

There is no doubt that this is a home that would be wonderful for a family, equally for a retired couple or as a holiday home. The grounds are a particular delight, approached via a sweeping gated driveway to the front, with broad paved southerly-facing terraces leading down to a garden laid principally to lawn, planted with a variety of deciduous trees, rose bushes and flower beds with a small vegetable patch, a shed and summer house.  The stream that runs along the boundary has deep cut sides, landscaped to create a gentle series of waterfalls and a bank to the far side of mature British trees including oak, willow and silver birch.

“Father loved to spend his time in the garden creating havens for hedgehogs, tending the vegetable plot and pruning the roses whilst Mum generally kept the terraces, arranging pots and baskets of flowers full of colour and scent. There’s an abundance of wildlife visitors here - Muntjac deer, robins, pheasants, green woodpeckers. It’s such an idyllic place.”

"The grandchildren enjoyed playing in the stream and building dens on the banks - safe and shallow no matter how much rainfall. With the bedroom windows and doors all flung open in summer, the sound of running water is so meditative and calming. Getting up early, it’s just beautiful to watch the sun rising above the trees.”
