The Property

A semi-detached period home, occupying a picturesque position in the heart of this quintessential English village. Constructed in traditional Cotswold stone this pretty property exhibits great character whilst offering comfortable accommodation for modern living. The main entrance opens into a rear hall, steps down provide access to the living space and stairs up rise to the first floor. A rear hall provides useful storage and place to hang coats. The kitchen has been fitted with traditional oak fronted cabinets, integral oven, electric hob and Belfast sink. This in turn opens to a recently upgraded conservatory offering space for dining and/or seating. Oak flooring flows throughout the rear hall, kitchen and conservatory. From the kitchen a doorways leads to the adjoining sitting room, boasting a double aspect outlook, with a view over the garden and the original main entrance door opening to the lane. The room is both well-proportioned and full of charm. An exposed stone fireplace with woodburning stove inset forms an attractive and warming focal point to the room. Located on the first floor are two bedrooms, both affording a beautiful view across the village roof tops to the wooded valley beyond. The larger of the two is particularly impressive, owing in part to its size, but also its double aspect outlook and built-in storage. Both bedrooms are served by a traditional and stylish family bathroom, fitted with a free-standing roll top bath, heated towel rail and oak floor. The property is warmed by electric heaters and is served by a shared septic tank, located on another property, owned by the Bathhurst Estate.
