A beautifully presented detached house with flexible, light and spacious accommodation enjoying a lovely southerly aspect with views out towards Clapton-on-the-Hill and set on the edge of the village.


Santhill House is situated on the edge of the village set back off the Rissington Road. Bourton-on-the-Water is a well known and popular Cotswolds village and provides an excellent range of local facilities including boutique shops, supermarkets, pubs, restaurants, doctors, churches, a leisure centre, local primary school and the popular Cotswold secondary school. The larger commercial and cultural centres of Cheltenham, Cirencester and Oxford are within easy travelling distance and there are main line rail services at Kingham (8 miles) (Paddington 80mins approx) and a comprehensive local bus network radiating from Bourton. The village is set in the heart of the Cotswold Hills which provide a wide range of outdoor rural leisure pursuits.


Santhill House comprises a very tastefully presented and recently extended detached House of reconstructed stone elevations under a principally pitched plain concrete tiled roof with a more recent and substantial Garden Room to the rear. The well planned accommodation is arranged over two floors with a wide Reception Hall and a large central Utility with a good sized Sitting Room, large interconnecting fully fitted Kitchen and Dining Room with an impressive Garden Room extending across the rear of the house making the most of the southerly aspect. There are also two ground floor bedrooms, one of which also serves as an office, and a bathroom. On the first floor there is a wide landing and two large double bedrooms each with en suite facilities. A key feature of the property is the superb southerly outlook and fine views out over the Windrush valley towards Clapton-on-the-Hill. The house also enjoys a wide south facing terrace and a good sized mature garden together with ample parking and a detached single garage to the front.
