An exceptional and exciting Cotswold home set within a glorious plot of 3.6 acres with garaging, swimming pool and tennis court.
A beautifully situated detached Cotswold stone home that was built in c1953 and has been extended and renovated over recent years. Hunters Green offers substantial family accommodation in a contemporary style with extraordinary leisure and entertainment space. It is more akin to a country retreat, set within beautiful grounds of 3.6 acres made up of formal gardens and edged with woodland. Whilst in the main the property has the feel of a sympathetically modernised home, the traditional features are apparent throughout the three floors of exceptional accommodation to include stone mullioned windows, limestone flooring, radiators, and elegant fireplaces.
The arrangement of the space on the ground floor has been very well considered, a sociable and partially open plan with zones for living and dining, lending itself well to the practicalities of modern life to be flexible yet functional. The accommodation is centered around an expansive hall which flows into the drawing room and across to the kitchen/family area. As with all the best family homes, the kitchen is the hub of the house. A social space ideal for entertaining, it is well-appointed with an excellent range of quality fitted cabinetry, integrated appliances, and a four oven Aga. The feature breakfast bar divides this area to a beautiful open sitting room with an impressive fireplace as a focal point to one side and formal dining room to the other. There is a useful utility room with a sink and plumbing for a washing machine.
Spanning the length of the property, the leisure area is positioned to the rear of the house, designed to take advantage of the gardens and landscape it enjoys an extremely peaceful aspect. The attractive timber and glazed structure is home to the indoor heated swimming pool, sauna and raised hot tub, changing rooms, a bar and seating area. This area opens to an extensive sun terrace and further to the gardens by way of three sets of French doors.
The bedroom arrangement is excellent and extremely spacious occupying the first and second floors. The master suite is particularly impressive with a balcony to enjoy the westerly aspect together with a dressing room on the second floor, accessed via a spiral staircase. There are three further double bedrooms and a family bathroom on the first floor and a further guest bedroom suite and study area on the second floor.
The gardens and grounds of Hunters Green are a joy. Particularly impressive, they offer the rare balance to the accommodation of a home of this size. The property is accessed via electric wrought iron gates and a long sweeping driveway leading to a turning area and further to the garage building with a studio and bathroom above. The gardens surround the property and beyond the grounds are woodland that provides the boundary framework to the entire plot and house. An extensive terrace is accessed from the swimming pool complex, an ideal spot to eat outside and take in the views.
In all, a home of distinction with the feel of a country retreat positioned within a private and glorious plot yet a short drive from Cheltenhams cultural centre.
