Grade II Listed Town House

Unique amazing 5/6-bedroom Grade II listed town house located in the heart of the Cotswolds.

Located on the market square in the conservation area of Northleach, this presents a rare opportunity to purchase a historic building in one of the best surviving examples of a medieval “New Town”.

Offered to the market with NO ONWARD CHAIN, this historic building has undergone a major restoration, which a very substantial part of it, is complete, including, but not limited to, a spectacular double storey glass (tempered) and oak atrium, triple insulated roof, roof “Velux” windows, a bespoke staircase to the first floor, total re-wiring, total plumbing piping and fixtures replacement, installation of heated flooring on the Atrium, kitchen and two en-suite bathroom, new boiler and double glazing.

As the renovations are not yet totally complete, offers an excellent potential for the Investor to personalize it, including a long rear garden called “burgage plot” with 300 ft x 30 ft.

The basement includes two compartments that can be used as a Cellar, home cinema or games room.
The ground floor comprises an entrance hall / atrium and dining area; beyond is the large open-plan kitchen, fully fitted including Italian Marble work tops, brand new Miele microwaves, oven and coffee machine and an “American” combined fridge/freezer. Also comprises a bathroom with shower and a 368 sq. ft. room with proposed part-vaulted ceiling, access to a mezzanine and bi-fold doors to an outdoor dining area. To the front is the main sitting room with age wood burner and windows onto the market square.

On the first floor are four bedrooms and three bathrooms, two of which are en-suite.

The second floor, with one bedroom and bathroom, features vaulted ceilings and exposed beams and timbers.
There is planning permission to create a sixth bedroom with en-suite bathroom within the second-floor attic space, accessed via a proposed staircase from the smaller bedroom below.

Northleach is a small historic town situated about 11 miles north-east of Cirencester and 10 miles south-west of Stow-on-the-Wold. Tucked away from the busy A40, between undulating hills, it is located at an important crossroads, just the Roman road, the Fosse Way, in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The streets in and around the ancient market square are rich in architectural interest, ranging from half-timbered Tuddor houses to merchants’ stores. The town has an excellent variety of shops, including an award-winning butcher, a chemist and a post office. There is also a doctor’s surgery, pre-school and junior school, a sports and social club, the magnificent medieval Parish Church of St Peter & St Paul, and two pubs, the Wheatsheaf Hotel and Restaurant, a café and a wine bar. More extensive shopping, leisure and educational facilities can be found in Cheltenham and Oxford. The Northleach Charter Fair and Music Festival is held annually in June, while a steam and vintage show has been revived by locals and is held annually in September.
