A big selling point for this property is the coach house, which can be used as a home office. Homeworking has become a huge part of people's lives since the national lockdowns, which have allowed a better work/life balance for many office workers.

David Henderson at Savills explains:

'Since the pandemic hit lifestyle factors have become a dominant force within the property market, particularly at the top end. Practicalities such as proximity to the office become less important as people prioritised quality of life when planning their next move.'

‘Home working looks set to continue to form part of people’s working week, with 41 per cent naming a separate WFH space in their top two, and a net balance of over 55 per cent saying that quality Wi-Fi had become more important over the past year.'

The home has broadband available with possible speeds up to 900mb, perfect to enjoy remote working from one of the two home offices in the refurbished coach house.

Village life is truly alive in Bourton-on-the-Hill with the Church of St Lawrence and historical houses peppered down the steep hill. Bourton House is the elegant country house whose gardens are open to the public to visit. Other attractions nearby include Sezincote House with its unusual architectural style and Batsford Arboretum, which is alive with colour for great walks.
