  • Bedrooms: 5
A mature large detached home built around 1970, benefitting from a substantial established extension effectively doubling the size of the original property.

Full refurbishment is needed to a contemporary standard.

Windrush is very nicely situated at the top of Baunton village, enjoying an elevated aspect and views and is convenient for easy reach into Cirencester town and also well-placed for good access to Cheltenham and the M4/M5, and the mainline train station at Kemble nearby.

Approached into an entrance porch, this leads through to a very large wide and welcoming reception hall. There is an adjacent cloakroom and an attractive range of well-proportioned reception rooms.

The drawing room is at the back of the house, enjoying a large fireplace with wood burner and French doors onto the garden. There is a sitting room which is dual aspect and has an open fireplace. A separate dining room has French doors to the side and a large kitchen/breakfast room provides potential for modern living, and there is an adjacent and useful large utility room.

At first floor level, the master bedroom suite is particularly impressive, being large and spacious. The bedroom itself is dual aspect and enjoys attractive views and an aspect onto the garden. A large adjacent dressing room has extensive built-in wardrobes, a sauna and an en-suite bathroom.

The guest bedroom/bedroom two also overlooks the rear, has built-in wardrobes and is en-suite. There are three further good sized bedrooms, all with built-in wardrobes and/or cupboards, a very spacious games room/work from home office, provides versatile use, plus

a family bathroom.

The extensive driveway leads to an integral double garage, also accessed from the house. There is a large front garden with a total plot estimated in the region of half an acre, and at the rear the property enjoys a wide patio terrace, gardens laid to lawn and extensive flower and shrub borders and a useful detached former pool room and changing facility, that could perhaps provide a work from home studio, annexe or staff flat for additional accommodation, and this currently provides a kitchenette, sitting room and shower room. There is also a useful outside wc and boiler room.

The house benefits from LPG central heating to radiators and secondary double glazed windows.

AMENITIES Baunton is close to the market town of Cirencester which is often referred to as the 'Capital of the Cotswolds'. It is ideally located with the M4, M5 and M40/A40, the mainline train station at Kemble and excellent bus and coach links all within easy reach.

Cirencester benefits from high street stores, independent specialist retailers, a weekly market and there are a number of delightful bistros, cafes, wine bars and public houses to suit all tastes. Cirencester also boasts a community hospital, a leisure centre and a lovely outdoor swimming pool. Nearby are golf, tennis, riding, football, rugby and cricket.

There are excellent primary and secondary state schools and a sixth form college campus. There are also good independent schools in the surrounding areas.
