Impressive contemporary designed dwelling on edge of this historic market town.

SITUATION Northleach is a small historic town situated about ten miles from the market town of Cirencester. Tucked away from the busy A40, between undulating hills, it stands at a crossroads on the Roman Fosse Way, in an area of outstanding natural beauty. The streets in and around the ancient market place are rich in architectural interest ranging from half-timbered Tudor houses to merchants' stores. Northleach has an excellent variety of shops including an award winning butcher, a chemist and a post office. The town also benefits from a doctor's surgery, junior school, nursery, a magnificent medieval church and the well regarded Wheatsheaf Inn. More extensive shopping, leisure and educational facilities can be found in Cheltenham and Oxford. A lively charter market is held every Wednesday and the Charter Fair is held annually in June.

Communications in general are excellent with the M40, M4 and M5 motorways all within easy travelling distance. There is a regular bus service to Moreton-in-Marsh and Cheltenham. Regular trains into Oxford and London Paddington depart from Kingham Station (14 miles).
