This magnificent home fulfills the dream of living in an idyllic golden stone home that is still within easy reach of London.
Rupert Sturgis, of Knight Frank’s Cirencester office, is selling a delightful estate in the village of South Czerny, which sits on the southeast slope of the Cotswolds, through which flows the River Chern, from which the name Czerny is derived.
Listed for sale at an estimated price of £2.85 million, this typical Cotswold stone house dates from the 1760s.
The house stands on four-fifths of an acre of walled garden next to the church in the oldest part of the village, 4.5 miles south of Cirencester.
Although Manor House has apparently never been associated with any of the surrounding estates, it is a reassuringly solid family home with four floors of accommodation including a reception room, three reception rooms, a conservatory, a kitchen/breakfast room and a wine cellar.
The main building has seven bedrooms and four bathrooms, and the adjoining wing has two more bedrooms.
In addition to the main house, there are many more entertainment. Fine stone buildings include a carriage house with original stables, a garage and a party room.
South Cerney is also very well located for those looking for a location in the Cotswolds while remaining within easy reach of London, Bath and beyond. It is close to the main A419 which leads directly to the M4. You can drive from here to Heathrow Airport in just over an hour, and trains from nearby Kemble Station, which is 10 minutes away, will take you to Paddington in the same time.
The village itself also has a lot to hold on to: South Surny is home to the Cotswold Water Park, with 150 lakes spread over more than 40 square miles. This is the main destination for almost any water sport, from sailing to jet skiing.
A homestead in the village of South Cherney is up for sale for £2.85m – see more photos and details.
