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

Campden school.
