Dibden House is situated in the highly sought after village of Alderton, on the edge of the Cotswold Escarpment.
In terms of facilities in Alderton, the village has the Gardners Arms pub, a local garage and petrol station, and a village shop that includes a post office. There is also the Junior campus of Oak Hill Primary School - the Infant campus being in nearby Dumbleton. There are also a number of pubs in the outlying areas around the village, including the Hobnails Inn at Little Washbourne. There is a real feeling of community in the village and the village hall is thriving with various events throughout the year.
The property itself was built as an absolute one off and is therefore totally unique, architecturally designed and constructed by well renowned local builder.
The approach is down a private driveway with feature lighting leading you down to the imposing frontage of the house.
Once inside, the entrance hall leads through to a useful room at the front of the property, currently used as a boot room but would also make a great study. Then, the main hub of the house is an open plan lounge kitchen diner at the rear of the property. This room is really very impressive, a great entertaining area and it simply must be seen to fully appreciate.
The kitchen area is beautifully finished, the central island is a key feature, the integrated appliances are Bosch and include double oven and grill, steam oven, plate warmer, induction hob with extractor hood, dishwasher and microwave, naturally, this will all be staying in the property.
The focal point of the lounge area is a stunning fireplace, this is a state of the art swiss made Ruegg heating element, it also heats the rest of the house through a vented system. This is just one of the energy efficiency features in the house.
The dining area is also part of this stunning room, it overlooks the garden with lots of glass and bifolding doors out onto the patio area. There is also a wall mounted air conditioning unit to keep cool in the summer months.
There is then a separate utility room, downstairs WC and a downstairs large double bedroom with external door, this area of the house offers great potential to be a separate annex for an elderly relative or teenager perhaps.
The entire downstairs is underfloor heated and the floors are beautifully tiled.
Upstairs, there are three further double bedrooms, main four piece bathroom and ensuite to master, both the ensuite and bathroom also benefit from underfloor heating.
Outside, the front boasts ample parking for four to six cars comfortably and the rear gardens are just superb.
There is a covered entertaining area with inbuilt barbecue, manicured lawn and also, a bar. This is a timber built structure which has heating, power and electric and just fantastic for entertaining friends and family. The gardens are South facing and clearly are a real sun trap in the summer!
In addition, the house benefits from a water reclamation system which again makes the house environmentally efficient and also affordable to run.
