ARRETON HOUSE | STATION ROAD | BLOCKLEY | GLOUCESTERSHIRE | GL56 9DT
Arreton House, Station Road, Blockley,
Gloucestershire, GL56 9DT
Positioned close to the centre of one of the most popular villages in the
North Cotswolds and privately screened in a cloak of mature foliage,
this magnificent detached five bedroomed country residence stands in
approximately 0.5 acres of its own ground and provides in total around
4200 sq ft of accommodation.
The property has been run as a successful bed and breakfast operation
over the last 16 years and could be further developed along those lines
if required or transformed into a stunning Cotswold home. The innate
character and charm of the property is manifest in the many oak
panelled walls and floors, exposed oak beams, pointed stone walls and
particularly attractive fireplaces. There is a magnificent entrance hall
now used as a living room, separate sitting room and dining room and
the property has a grand staircase to the front and a stone butler's
staircase to the rear. At first floor first floor level the property has been
divided into two sections with three very attractive suites, all with en-suite
facilities, an additional living room and separate two bedroomed
owner's accommodation and shower room.
Externally there are formal gardens on three sides with a landscaped
patio area and a well screened lawn. Arreton House has not been on
the open market for over 20 years and therefore creates a special
opportunity for those looking for a substantial home in a discreet village
location. The courtyard through which the property is approached has
parking for around six vehicles, access to which is shared with the
adjacent Coach House.
Blockley is positioned midway between the cafe society of Chipping
Campden and the more traditional market town of Moreton in Marsh
where there are rail links to London Paddington. The village has two
public houses, two hotels, a nursery and primary school and combined
village shop and tearoom which has now become the hub of the village.
The village is also within the catchment area for Chipping
