Come home to The Courtyard

A wonderful four-bedroom property in the Nailsworth Valley at Woodchester

What: The Courtyard at Little Britain Farm is a four-bedroom property with fantastic entertaining space.

Where: Woodchester, Gloucestershire.

Inside: A wonderful, recently refurbished, Grade II Listed home retaining many original features (doors, beams and flooring). It is rumoured that Edward Jenner tested his smallpox vaccine on cows feeding from the manger in the old stables (now ancillary accommodation). The property benefits from wonderful entertaining space and an incredibly well thought-out kitchen/breakfast room incorporating a range of integrated appliances. There are four bedrooms and three bathrooms.

Outside: Externally, the property benefits from an enclosed, well-maintained and charming garden with three individual seating areas – one of which is under cover and has been used, by the current owners, as an external cinema! At the rear of the property is another garden with decked area from which one can absorb the most stunning views.

How much: Guide price of £995,000.

Twice as lovely

A pair of unusual stone houses that offer significant potential

What: Two listed houses in a glorious Cotswold setting, enjoying distant views over the Coln Valley.

Where: Sevenhampton, near Cheltenham, Gloucestershire.

Inside: The Dovecote is an attached three-bedroom dwelling with varying internal levels due to the bulk of the accommodation having been added to the original Dovecote sometime during the 1960s. The house would benefit from updating and offers potential. The Stable is a converted two-storey building with a more conventional layout and has been used as ancillary accommodation to the main house as well as a games/party room on the ground floor. The first floor is a splendid one-bedroom flat accessed by a large spiral staircase. The building enjoys superb views over the gardens and the valley beyond and offers scope for a range of alternative layouts subject to any relevant permissions.

Outside: A raised terrace that links the two buildings looks over the landscaped gardens. Bounded by Cotswold walls on three sides, the plot extends to almost an acre. Nestled towards the rear of the garden is a beautifully restored Victorian greenhouse complete with original panes of glass and working ironwork. There is a lower level meadow/orchard which could be used as an extensive allotment.

How much: Guide price of £795,000.

Fit for a prince

A bespoke detached house in the ‘Venice’ of the Cotswolds

What: Frogmere is a unique home set comfortably on the edge of the village of Bourton, enjoying lovely southerly views along the Windrush Valley.

Where: Rissington Road, Bourton-on-the-Water, Gloucestershire.

Inside: A bespoke detached house constructed to exacting standards of Cotswold Stone with superb oak-framed windows overlooking its manicured landscaped gardens. The property has been upgraded and reconfigured in its current ownership to provide individual accommodation of the highest quality to create a flexible living space that includes three en suite double bedrooms and reception space designed to maximise the lovely aspect out over the gardens.

Outside: The house has ample parking and a detached double car port to the front with a large landscaped garden to the rear with a fine southerly aspect.

How much: Guide price of £715,000.
