Located within Yarningale, a pretty established village on the outskirts of Claverdon, this intriguing family home is ideally positioned to enjoy easy access to the surrounding towns and cities, whilst enjoying countless rural pursuits at hand. Originally a modest lock keepers cottage in the late 1800’s, then later extended over the years by the previous custodians, the property now offers an abundance of space and versatility, making the most of its delightful leafy setting.

The current owners occupy the majority of the house in the main, then successfully rent the original cottage as self-contained holiday let, which generates an income of circa £20,000 per annum. This space could easily be incorporated into the principal accommodation, or serve a dependent relative well as a fully self contained home.

Being positioned adjacent to the Avon Canal at lock 34, you can enjoy watching the narrow boats come and go from your front gate at their relaxed pace, and the towpath affords an abundance of walking opportunities for those that wish to explore the full extent of the canal ways. A meandering river then surrounds the property on the north west boundary, providing the most relaxing backdrop.

Upon approach from Yarningale Lane, you proceed onto a private gravel driveway that provides ample parking for several vehicles and access to a detached double garage. Proceed over the pedestrian bridge at lock no.34 and pass through double opening gates to the block paved forecourt. Entering the property via an oak and glazed porch, you are greeted by a split level hallway, with tiled flooring, steps rise to the original barrel topped cottage and panel doors lead off to the principal accommodation.

There is a large family / games room with striking stone fireplace and inset log burner, exposed beams, bar area and two bow widows to rear. Continue through to a most impressive open plan kitchen, living and dining area that is filled with natural light through several glazed roof lanterns and an expanse of patios doors, that also frame uninterrupted views of the garden. This room can be used in countless ways to suit a buyers lifestyle requirements, but currently offers a relaxed seating area with freestanding log burner as a focal point, separate dining area, occasional dining area and then the kitchen itself. This space is beautifully designed with an array of built in storage, complemented by contrasting marble and quartz worksurfaces, a range of appliances and a large central island and breakfast bar. There is also tiled flooring with under floor hearing throughout.

An inner lobby then leads to a useful utility room and spacious family room / home office. From here an independent staircase provides access to a generous main bedroom with en-suite shower room. A door then leads to a walk out balcony, linking this room to the other first floor bedrooms, comprising a further four double bedrooms, two with en-suite, family bathroom and separate WC.

The main staircase then leads down to the ground floor lobby, from here you can then access a second large utility room, bedroom / hobbies room and the second, fully equipped dining kitchen that services the cottage. Independent access can be used via a second entrance hallway, then leading past a ground floor bathroom into the impressive barrel roofed cottage with an amazing living room and two double bedrooms, one with en-suite.

Externally, the property sits well within its formal gardens, that extend to all sides of the house. There is an enclosed and part covered terrace with balcony above, enjoying views of the river and rural vista beyond. To the main rear elevation, a large split level paved terrace services the kitchen and offers the perfect space to enjoy alfresco dining or to entertain guests. Lawns then extend outwards in a southerly direction, passing the all weather floodlit tennis court. Mature trees are interspersed and a large detached block of stables then provides potential for a buyer with equestrian interests. The mature tree and water lined boundary provides a superb feeling of privacy and seclusion, with glimpses between of the water, surrounding undulating countryside and beyond. In all, the property occupies a plot in the region of 3.3 acres.
