DESCRIPTION
Lovingly converted approximately 30 years ago, The Old Duke of York Inn offers a magnificent family home in the heart of the village. Accessed via a useful porch opening to the kitchen, the charm and character within the house, is immediately evident; this is a home steeped in history with character features throughout, including beautiful aged doors and stunning exposed beams. Clearly the heart of the home, the kitchen is fitted with bespoke units by local carpenters, Woodchester Cabinet Makers and an Everhot cooker which provides a warming focal point. There is room for a good sized kitchen table, perfect for family suppers, and high ceilings dating from the Victorian era, create a lovely sense of space. A cosy snug with oak flooring leads off the kitchen, providing a great room for after-dinner relaxing or cosy evenings sat by the wood burner. Mullion windows frame the pretty view of the garden and a window seat offers the perfect spot to relax with a book. The main reception leads off the rear hall and is located in the older part of the house, believed to date back to the early 18th Century. The room has a wonderful welcoming vibe with low ceilings, typical of the era, a spectacular feature fireplace and historic aged beams. There is room for a large dining table, providing the perfect spot for entertaining. A good sized boot room leads off the rear hall, providing ample room for muddy boots and country paraphernalia and with access to the courtyard parking area. The original pub cloakroom is located at the end of the rear hall, a fabulous nod to days gone by. A utility and walk-in larder are also located off the rear hallway.

Stairs lead from the boot room to a spacious landing with bespoke built-in storage cupboards. A large window allows plentiful natural light. Five good sized bedrooms are located on the first floor, all with wonderful views of either the garden or across the Stroud Valley to Hyde Hill. All the bedrooms have been beautifully laid out to provide discreet storage. A second staircase leads from the sitting room to one of the bedrooms. Two family bathrooms are also located at this level. A separate spiral staircase leads to a further attic room, currently used as a music room but ideal also as a playroom or teenage den.

A two storey annexe, yet to be converted, believed to have been the barrel store to the pub, provides an ideal space for additional storage or for conversion (listed planning consent in place until May 2024). A garage provides parking for one car plus a large storage area, with useful access to the house. The gardens are beautifully landscaped, with the main garden south facing and entirely enclosed and private. Several terraces provide a choice of seating areas and there is also a vegetable and fruit garden, together with a selection of fruit trees including apple, pear and fig. There is private parking for several cars.

LOCATION
Chalford is a quintessential Cotswold village with pretty little narrow lanes lined with stunning historic properties, of which The Old Duke of York Inn is a prime example. The village has a strong sense of community with a good selection of local amenities including a popular community shop on Chalford bottom High Street, the Boho cafe and a hairdressing salon. For sporting enthusiasts there is a Sports and Social Club hosting football, cricket, tennis and regular exercise classes. Chalford is also well-known for its hugely popular annual music festival, Chalfest. The village is well-placed for wonderful country walks and there is a popular pub, The Kings Head, in the neighbouring village of France Lynch, just a 20 minute walk from the property.

The market towns of Stroud and Cirencester are both within easy reach, offering a good choice of shops and recreational activities. Stroud has several major supermarkets, including Waitrose, plus an award winning Saturday Farmers Market.

One of the key draws to the area is the excellent choice of schools. Chalford has a popular primary school and Thomas Keble Secondary School is within a five minute drive. There are also sought after grammar schools in nearby Stroud, as well as in Gloucester and Cheltenham plus a good selection of schools in the private sector; Beaudesert Park in Minchinhampton is within easy reach, as is Wycliffe in Stonehouse, as well as several popular schools in Cheltenham. Transport links are excellent with trains into London Paddington (circa 90 minutes) from Stroud mainline station. Both the M5 and M4 motorways are easily accessible.
