The Bell House is a charming detached Victorian character cottage situated in the heart of the popular village of Stourton. The front of the property has a handsome red brick double fronted façade with sash windows, whilst the rear of the property is constructed of stone.
The Bell House is a charming double-fronted detached Victorian property situated in the heart of the quaintly picturesque North Cotswold village of Stourton. Predominantly dating back to 1879, built of red brick and Cotswold stone and empathetically extended in the 1990s, this desirable three bedroomed family home has retained many beautiful period features including stripped panelled doors with brass furniture, two open fireplaces (both fitted with wood burning stoves), original sash windows to the front elevation and an exposed flagstone floor in the reception / dining hall.
The generous living spaces include an elegant dual-aspect drawing room, an adjoining family room and a traditionally fitted farmhouse kitchen complete with an Aga. Orientated to enjoy the best of the day’s sun, each room has a glazed door opening onto a broad sheltered terrace - ideal for dining al fresco on balmy summer evenings – and overlooking a wide raised lawn, the whole enjoying a high degree of natural privacy with maturely planted borders and deciduous trees, including two apple trees.
“When we viewed Bell House we were immediately captivated by its prettiness and its potential.
We haven’t been here long enough to see through all our grand designs but we have done a huge amount of re-decorating and made many general improvements including installing a beautiful reclaimed pine floor in the drawing room.
However, my work is increasingly in London and with a daily train commute from Banbury, although only an hour in each direction, I am not seeing as much of my young family as I would like, so we have regretfully made the decision to move closer.”
“This is a wonderful village - we have absolutely loved living here. There’s a fantastic sense of community, especially with a brand new lottery-funded village hall where there are so many clubs and social events including a farmer’s market once a month - from yoga, pilates, art and craft classes to a mother and toddler group, you name it, we have it.
“There’s also a good pub where everyone in the village gravitates on Friday nights and for Sunday lunches, and we are lucky enough to have an enthusiastic young vicar who organises an active church calendar including a nativity service that draws in all the local children. ‘’
The local area is also brimming with sites of interest and things to do, the Cotswold Distillery is literally on the doorstep, as is the Hook Norton Brewery. The distinctive market towns of Shipston on Stour and Chipping Norton are only a few miles away offering a range of amenities. The landscape is also full of delightful pubs and attractions including Daylesford and Soho Farmhouse.
Certain to command a great deal of interest, early viewing is unhesitatingly recommended. Offered to the market by Fine & Country North Cotswolds, the property has a Launch Viewing Day on Saturday 23rd February.
