Occupying a popular Cotswold village setting lies this detached 3 bedroom cottage, in need of modernisation and offering great scope for improvement and extension, subject to the relevant consents. Arkell Cottage is located within the old part of the village enjoying close proximity to a variety of amenities including several primary schools the popular Thomas Keble Secondary School, Tesco and Frithwood Doctors surgery, to name a few. Whilst loved by the previous owners for many years, the house would now benefit from modernisation, and due to its plot, offers the room to extend and create a larger family home if desired. Approached through a front entrance porch, the main doors leads into the sitting room, where a Cotswold stone fireplace creates a focal point to the room. Stairs rise to the the first floor and an opening leads to the adjoining dining room. This room enjoys a double aspect out to either side of the cottage. The dining room is then open plan to the kitchen where a side door opens to the garden. Three bedrooms and a large modern shower room are located on the first floor. An adjoining garage offers yet further scope. Our clients believe that the garage foundations are suitable for a second storey, however, buyers will need to make their own investigations to ascertain if this is the case. A new combination boiler was installed in August 2022.
Set back from the lane, a tarmac driveway leads to the attached garage. Gardens and grounds extend to all three sides of the house and incorporate an area of lawn, vegetable patch and pave area. A variety of plant, shrubs and trees border and pepper the the garden. As with the house the would benefit from some attention. A timber shed, greenhouse and outbuilding lie to the rear boundary.
