From a small countryside lane, the imposing entrance gates of Horsley Grove welcome you into its grounds, with a sweeping Cotswold Stone gravelled driveway bordered with perfectly manicured shrubs, you immediately get a sense of how special this property is. The driveway leads to a courtyard where the outbuildings and car port are located.

You are drawn to the natural beauty of the stone flooring which continues on the stairs leading to the first floor offering a unique feature. Above your head is the viewing balcony of the first floor designed as a glass fronted mezzanine which is open to the Reception Hall and boasts stylish teardrop lighting.
Moving through the hallway to your left is the Sitting Room, a generous and well-proportioned space flooded with light from the tri-fold doors which open up to the ground floor terrace and gardens. Either end of the room is decorated with Venetian Plaster (a component which is mixed with lime dust) giving a stunning natural effect to the walls and adding a point of interest. A Regency style feature fireplace works perfectly in the room against the stunning texture and colour of the walls. Every detail has been considered with bespoke wooden slatted shutters framing each window.

The Parquet style wood flooring compliments the room perfectly and benefits from underfloor heating. There is enough space for a 6 – 8 seating table with a striking pendant light above. A snug area in front of the wood burning stove, allows for a cosy space in the winter months.
