Bedrooms: 5
A stunning and unique detached country home, situated on the edge of Aston in a rural position, set in grounds and gardens of around 3.88 acres.

Ivyley is a most individual and unique detached home, beautifully presented and situated on the very edge of Aston in a rural position overlooking its own paddock to the rear.

The property is entered into a spacious hall, which has a decorative fireplace and features exposed ceiling beams with stairs rising to the first floor. Doors lead from the hall to a substantial family kitchen/dining room which is at the rear of the property and provides wonderful views of the garden and paddock beyond. The kitchen is extensively fitted with a good range of units, granite worktops and Neff appliances. The dining area has a vaulted ceiling which is a real future of the room; it also benefits from under-floor heating and doors leading out to the rear and side gardens. Adjacent to the kitchen is a playroom/boot room.

The sitting room is unusually located on the first floor of the property, with lovely rural views to two aspects. A wood burning stove is an attractive feature and a mezzanine area provides access on to a private decked roof terrace. Completing the first floor are two good-sized double bedrooms, one of which has a Jack-and-Jill-style shower room and the other currently being used as an office.

Downstairs, on the ground floor, is located a family bathroom and separate cloakroom, with a master bedroom enjoying an en suite bathroom and dressing area. There are three further double bedrooms on the ground floor with a utility room and a studio/office which is accessed from the house but lies directly above the double garage.

The double garage has power and light connected and two up-and-over doors. The gardens encircle the property, having been laid to lawn with decked and paved seating areas, mature shrubs and trees, a kitchen garden and small orchard. It is worth noting that there are two separate driveways, with the front drive allowing off-road parking for multiple vehicles, leading to the double garage, and the other gated access provides access directly into the three and a half acres of fenced paddock land.

The property is heated by way of an oil-fired boiler to radiators and under-floor heating, with a gas tank providing fuel for the gas hob in the kitchen. Mains water, electricity and drainage are understood to be connected and the tenure is assumed to be freehold.

Aston lies just outside the larger village of Bampton, on the edge of the Cotswolds, and offers a primary school, Church of England and Methodist churches, a public house, The Red Lion, a recreation field with playground and the well-known Aston Pottery which has a superb café.

Bampton is one of the oldest and prettiest villages in the area. While it retains 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 - with something for everyone. It has a post office, library, a sports ground and pavilion, an art gallery, two churches, a primary school, a medical centre and of course a market square.

The village is well known as one of the film sets for Downton Abbey and as the background to the popular crime novels by Melvin Starr featuring the mediaeval surgeon, Hugh de Singleton.
