DESCRIPTION
Atcombe Court Farmhouse offers a magnificent family home in an idyllic setting neighbouring Woodchester Valley Vineyard. The home offers a perfect fusion of period charm alongside modern craftmanship and style, in a truly magical location. Accessed via a spacious boot room, ideal for coats and country paraphernalia, the house opens into a superb open-plan kitchen/living space. Cream shaker-style units provide plentiful storage and a deep-red Aga provides a warming focal point to the room. There is ample room for a good sized dining table, as well as a snug area with wood burning stove. The kitchen benefits from wonderful views over the garden and across the rolling hills. A 'statement' oak-framed dining room leads off the kitchen, with a seating area overlooking the garden, making this an ideal room for entertaining. A useful utility leads off the rear of the dining room, plus a cloakroom. The two ground floor reception rooms provide well-thought out living and entertaining spaces, both with original fireplaces and one currently used as a home office/TV room. A large full-height cellar is accessed from the kitchen, providing extensive storage space and currently used as a walk-in larder.

A wide staircase leads to the first floor with three bedrooms and a family bathroom. The third bedroom would convert well as an en-suite to the principal bedroom. A further two bedrooms plus a second bathroom, are located on the top floor. All of the bedrooms comprise well-laid out space and all benefit from wonderful views.

The grounds are a real feature of the property. A covered oak framed pergola runs across the front of the kitchen to provide cover from the glorious south-westerly sun. There is a a well established organic vegetable bed ripe for re-planting, well-stocked borders and a patio, ideal for alfresco entertaining. Beyond the garden, the grounds extend to 7 acres of paddock, orchard and woodland. Gated access leads to ample parking plus a Dutch Barn-style double carport with store room to the side.
