A delightful 4 bedroom cottage, occupying a picture postcard Cotswold setting in the heart of this popular village. With the canal positioned behind the cottage and the River Frome meandering past the bottom of the gently sloping garden, wildlife is in abundance. Having been upgraded by the existing owners, 4 Meadow Cottages is beautifully presented, offering the perfect combination of contemporary style and period features. Accommodation is positioned across three floors with all rooms overlooking the front elevation with a delightful view of the garden and quaint village roof tops beyond. The fabulous triple aspect kitchen has been refitted with stylish grey cabinets, where a central island offers not only great additional storage but a place to socialise whilst cooking. An integral double oven, hob and extractor hood further adds to the rooms appeal. Steps up from the kitchen open to a formal dining area with oak flooring where French doors lead to the front terrace. A doorway from the dining area opens to a formal sitting room with double aspect window and oak flooring. A fireplace with woodburning stove inset is a beautiful and warming feature within the room, whilst a bay window ensures that the room enjoys great light. Also located on this floor is a useful cloakroom. From the kitchen a door opens to the rear hall, offering hanging space for coats and direct access onto the canal tow path. From here stairs rise to the first floor. Three bedrooms are positioned on this level with the third currently being utilised as a home office, where a pretty view of the garden and village are enjoyed. The remaining two bedrooms enjoy a similarly pretty outlook with one room also boasting plentiful built in storage and a period feature fireplace. A generous modern family bathroom with separate shower cubicle serves all bedrooms. A staircase from the landing leads to a further double bedroom with velux roof lights to the front and rear elevations.
The cottage enjoys both rear and front access. The main door is located to the rear of the property and can be accessed by walking along the canal tow path. On a day to day basis the current owners use the shared pathway that is accessed from the High Street. Immediately adjoining the cottage is an enclosed gravelled courtyard with raised resin deck, offering the ideal spot for alfresco dining. A paved area to the side of the cottage houses a log store and offers space to store bins. The main section of garden is positioned on the opposite side of the shared pathway. Bordering the River Frome the garden is a haven for wildlife. Laid to lawn and incorporating flower beds, fruit trees and soft fruits, all planted by the existing owners, the garden is a riot of colour in the Spring and Summer months. A small riverside patio provides the perfect spot to sit and enjoy this tranquil setting. A timber shed offers external storage.
