Buttress House is a charming 17th/18th Century, Grade II listed Cotswold stone village house, quietly nestling in a surprisingly private setting with beautiful and secluded gardens.
The house offers well proportioned and very well presented accommodation with formal and informal rooms, ideal for entertaining. The house has been a much loved family home for over 20 years houses of this size and location are rarely available in this village. Buttress House occupies a fine position on the edge of this most sought after village. This is an excellent house that has undergone a detailed renovation, by the current owners, to an extremely high standard and is full of charm and character with a wealth of period details including exposed beams, mullion windows, inglenook fireplaces and flag stone floors. There is a significant amount of living and entertaining space, including a lovely light kitchen/breakfast room with Aga, overlooking a courtyard garden, a library/sitting room, an impressive double height drawing room with exposed stone walls and stone floor and a wonderfully versatile studio room which is suitable for a variety of uses such as an office, party room or summer sitting room, with double doors opening into the gardens.
Buttress House is approached through a private sweeping driveway, with ample parking bordered by a Cotswold stone wall on one side and a lawn with yew pyramids on the other. Integral to the house is a modern workshop with power and light as well as a large single garage, both of which could easily be converted to provide additional accommodation (subject to the necessary planning consents) if required.
The gardens have been beautifully landscaped by the current owners, with low Cotswold stone walls and curving steps connecting the different levels. The mix of mature trees, shrubs, flowers, natural spring fed ponds and lawns provide colour, privacy and tranquillity and every corner in the garden has something to offer, being generously planted with all manner of contrasting plants adding different heights, colour and depth to the well stocked borders. A formal potager kitchen garden is located to the west face of Buttress House containing a series of productive raised beds set in a most delightful enclosed courtyard.
