a once in a lifetime opportunity to buy a detached village house, in need of complete restoration with an adjoining paddock.

The Property


This much loved detached two bedroom home has been in the same family possession for decades and now it’s time for new owners to create their dream property.

The location is superb as it lies on the edge of a thriving Cotswold village with easy vehicle access to the land and the house.

The field, in addition to the grounds, measure in total 0.8 acres, making it an exciting opportunity to live the country life by either growing vegetables, planting an orchard, getting your child a pony, having bees or hens, the list is endless.

Our vendors will not consider any ‘conditional’ offers so it’s vital that all interested parties do their homework with the Stroud District planning dept prior to offering. The private drainage system, probably a septic tank, will not comply to the new environmental regulations commencing January 2020 therefore the new owners will need to replace and relocate the whole system. Anyone seeking mortgage funds will need advice and permission from their lender prior to making an offer. The purchaser’s solicitor will be responsible to register this house and paddock with land registry upon completion


The boundary is denoted mainly by a Cotswold stone wall. There is vehicle access off the top lane, in addition to separate pedestrian accesses into the level field and front garden. It enjoys open views across neighbouring farmland and is adjacent, on one side to the village hall and it’s car park. The level garden houses a shed, the oil tank and a private drainage system. There is a detached single garage.
