If Georgian grabs your attention every time, Chapel House in the pretty South Cotswold village of Colerne is one to see. The Grade II-listed home has bags of family space and stylish design, from a bespoke kitchen laid with slate tiles that flow into a dining room, to a 27ft sitting room with a marble fireplace at one end and a seating area at the other, lit by French windows to the garden. A useful study can be found on the lower-ground floor, while pale stone walls and wood floors lead the way  to four bedrooms upstairs — the master enjoying a luxurious en suite. Through Hamptons.
