The Property

A detached cottage, occupying a desirable village setting and boasting beautifully presented accommodation. Deceptive from the front elevation, the cottage is much deeper than you would first expect,providing well proportioned rooms, often not found in cottages. Having been completely renovated, the house exudes warmth and character whilst offering the comforts of contemporary living. The vendors attention to detail is apparent throughout, examples include the bespoke oak thumb latch doors, aluminium framed windows and bi-fold doors and the exquisitely planted garden. Approached via a gravel path, access can be gained through the main front entrance or through a side door opening into reception hall with flagstone floor and storage. Three reception rooms are positioned to the front of the cottage. An inglenook fireplace with woodburning stove inset forms a focal point to the main sitting room, whilst a window seat offers yet further character. A wood effect tiled floor offers ease of maintenance. This is complimented by a snug with redbrick fireplace with woodburning stove inset and a study with oak flooring. The snug is open plan to the most impressive family kitchen. Measuring in excess of a 37ft, this beautiful room is undoubtedly the hub to the house, enjoying room for both living and dining, with bi fold doors opening to the garden. A vaulted ceiling to one end further adds to the feeling of space. Fitted with bespoke cabinets, oak worktops, a wine cooler, range cooker, dishwasher and fridge/freezer, the kitchen is beautifully appointed. A useful utility room adjoins the side entrance hall, accessible from the kitchen. Four bedrooms are positioned on the first floor. Bedroom is one is serviced by a pretty ensuite bathroom with roll top bath, whilst a further two have use of a shower room. Bedrooms one and two enjoy a vaulted ceilings with exposed A frames beams, whilst bedroom 4, used as a dressing room has built in storage.


A gated gravel driveway provides off road private parking. A pedestrian gate opens to a pathway which meanders through the pretty front garden, offering access to both the front and side doors. Enclosed by Cotswold stone walling, the front garden is beautifully designed, with a small lawn and mature flower borders planted with Lavender and roses. The main garden extends to the side of the cottage is also accessible from the bi-fold doors opening from the kitchen. A patio area offers the perfect spot for alfresco dining, whilst a pergola with mature vine provides a sheltered area to sit in the shade. Pleached fruit trees add further interest and colour. As with the front garden, borders have been planted with a variety of plants and shrubs and are a burst of colour. Two sheds provide outside storage. A further gravelled garden lies to the rear of the property providing more opportunity for outside dining. Planning permission was secured in 2010 for the erection of a garage and an extension to the parking area. The parking area was extended but the garage not built, as such it is likely that the planning will still be valid. S.10/1745/HHOLD.
