Haresfield Court was built in 1676 by John Rogers, refronted and enlarged to the east by Francis Niblett in 1869 and enlarged to the west in 1893 by Waller & Son. It was converted into 11 properties in 1982. As you enter the estate you start to realise that this is a stunning setting. There is a large pond (complete with tame ducks) on one side of the driveway and woodland on the other. As the driveway bends to the right you see the beautifully tended communal gardens with a variety of mature trees and shrubs and you catch your first glimpse of the stunning main building. You will also start to appreciate the views backing out onto open countryside with free access for residents. The grounds extend to approximately 2.3 acres.
Living/Dining Room (8.03m x 5.26m)
This stunning room has parquet flooring and an abundance of character features which include stone mullion windows with shutters, high ceilings and a stained-glass window. The huge open Cotswold stone fireplace is surrounded by wood panelling along the entire wall. The dual aspect to this room gives you views over the expansive grounds.
Kitchen (4.14m x 2.90m)
The Kitchen is fully fitted with a range of solid wood hand painted cream cabinets and granite worktops. A double Belfast sink is situated beneath the sash window which looks out onto the grounds. The integrated appliances include a dishwasher, washing machine and five burner gas range cooker with extractor hood above. There is space for a large fridge/freezer.
2nd reception room/4th bedroom (4.47m x 3.40m)
Next to the kitchen is a second reception room which could be used as a family room, fourth (double) bedroom or separate dining room. Note – There is a partition wall between the kitchen and this room so the rooms could be combined if a large kitchen/dining room is required.
Study Area (4.04m x 2.34m)
The current owners use the large hallway area just outside the second reception room as a study area.
Master Bedroom with en- suite (7.06m x max 4.93m)
This is an enviable room with the continuation of high ceilings, two large fitted wardrobes and an en-suite containing a roll top bath, low level WC, wash hand basin and heated towel rail.
Bedroom 2 (4.80m x 4.19m)
Another large double bedroom with a built-in wardrobe and sash window.
Bedroom 3 (3.05m x 2.18m)
A lovely single bedroom overlooking a courtyard area.
There is a bath with shower over, low level WC and wall mounted sink with a large built-in mirrored cupboard above.
Courtyard and Cellar
The courtyard is not part of the property but as the only access is from No. 3 the owners have landscaped it and use it exclusively. From the hallway there is an internal door to the Cellar which has power and lighting. This cellar is again not part of the property but it does have the only entrance so it provides very useful storage space for the owners. Both the cellar and the courtyard are owned and maintained by the Freehold.
The beautiful gardens are available for all residents to use. There are several seating areas and residents have enjoyed a communal Friday evening drink in the garden when restrictions allowed it. The property has one allocated parking space to the front of the property and another space in the 2nd car park. The parking spaces are not designated. There is a communal bike shed for all the properties to use.
The village of Haresfield is nestled at the foot of the Cotswold escarpment and Haresfield Beacon. The village has a pub, church and an excellent primary school. It is conveniently located for transport links such as Junction 12 of the M5 motorway which is 1.8 miles away and provides access to Gloucester, Bristol and Cheltenham. Stonehouse High Street is approximately 4 miles away and also provides local facilities and amenities to include a Co-op with a Post Office, several restaurants, primary and secondary schools and Stonehouse train station which has a main line to London (Paddington Station – 1.5 hours).
Leave Stonehouse on the B4008 heading towards Standish. Then take the right hand turning signposted for Little Haresfield. Continue on this road for approximately 1.1 miles and the entrance to Haresfield Court will be found on the left-hand side, marked ‘Haresfield Court – Private’. Go down the driveway, swing right around the pond and you will come into the visitor and separate residents’ car parking areas.
