Berkeley House, an impressive and beautifully presented Grade II Listed Georgian house, conscientiously restored under the stewardship of the present owners. As denoted by the blue plaque outside the front door, it was built by Edward Jenner, marking its place in the history of the father of Immunology. It is situated on the ancient High Street with views through its shuttered sash windows over open green space and the churchyard towards Berkeley Castle, itself just a short walk from the stone steps of the threshold, with open countryside just beyond. The accommodation is laid out over flour floors, including an impressive panelled hallway and staircase, living room with fireplace, a superb dual-aspect kitchen/dining room, plus a family room, utility area and wine cellar below. There are four bedrooms, two on the first floor and two at the top of the house under the impressive beamed ceilings - separated by a useful study area. The master bedroom has wall-to-wall fitted wardrobes and an en-suite with a roll-top bath. Electric gates to the side open into a gravelled courtyard with a former coach-house and covered parking complemented by a work-shop, shed and loft room. Well-tended mature gardens stretch out westwards, perfect for afternoon sunshine, screened by mature trees and shrubs, with a generous expanse of lawn and a flag-stone patio - overall, circa 0.2 acres. A very special home.
