This handsome four bedroom Edwardian family home is set in the heart of this sought after location. The property has been painstakingly maintained by the current owners to include the provision of restored open fireplaces throughout with tiled hearths and the restoration of the original ornate coving to the ground floor ceilings. The sitting room also has a large bay window to the front which enhances the feel of this spacious yet calming room. The study has a French door with glazed side lights leading directly to the rear terrace; this space lends itself well to also being used as a playroom for the children, a formal dining room or snug. The separate breakfast room and kitchen sit to the rear and would make a beautiful open kitchen/family room with the removal of the dividing wall. There are two double bedrooms on the first floor with a very large bathroom with separate WC. Bedrooms three and four are to the second floor and are accessed via a dog-leg staircase with turned balustrades and banister over. Overall a stunning period property with private parking to the rear, cellarette and kerb appeal in abundance.
Bampton is a bustling village which sits close to the edge of the Cotswolds and is indeed one of the oldest in the area. Whilst retaining much of the character of the traditional Cotswold village it is also a hive of activity, with a multitude of events taking place throughout the year. Bampton boasts an excellent array of amenities for a village of its size with a post office, bank, library, a sports ground and pavilion, an art gallery, two churches, primary school, and of course the Market Square.
