We are delighted to present this CHAIN FREE and very pretty three bedroom Cotswold stone cottage, perfectly situated in the heart of the popular village of Eastcombe. Hillcrest Cottage is close to the village amenities and offers well proportioned and characterful accommodation, a gated driveway and an attractive enclosed garden and terrace. The front door leads you into a canopied porch area; perfect for leaving coats and shoes behind before entering into the dining room. This well proportioned room boasts a feature fireplace, with tiled floor and stairs to the first floor. Doors lead off to the kitchen and sitting room. The bright sitting room enjoys plenty of natural light from two windows to the front, with an open stone fireplace and wood burning stove being a lovely focal point. From here, a door leads to the snug/study with a useful built-in cupboard and flagstone floor, providing that all important ‘work from home’ space, or perhaps a playroom/hobby room. The kitchen to the rear enjoys views over the garden and offers a modern range of fitted units with block wood work surfaces, built-in hob, double oven, fridge/freezer, and a very handy larder cupboard. The snug/study can also be reached from the kitchen and a further door on the opposite side leads to the WC/utility where there is space for a washing machine, and access to the outside from a small hallway. On the first floor landing, doors lead to all three bedrooms and a stylish shower room; two pretty double bedrooms being to the front of the cottage, both with deep sills/window seats, with one boasting en-suite bath/shower room, and the rear bedroom enjoying views over the lovely garden. AGENT’S NOTE: The property is listed as ‘Hillcrest’ with Land Registry and Royal Mail, but known locally as ‘Hillcrest Cottage’.
The landscaped gardens are an exceptional feature of Hillcrest and have clearly been loved and well tended. To the front can be found a paved courtyard area with room for a bistro set from which to watch village life go by. There is gated side access leading to the rear landscaped garden, comprising a paved terrace with wide paved steps flanked by a rockery to one side and shrubs to the other, leading to a level lawn with gravelled seating area for al fresco dining, greenhouse, and shrub and flower borders, all enclosed with wood panel fencing. The garden enjoys a good degree of privacy. A gated gravel driveway to the front of the cottage provides private parking for two to three cars.

Eastcombe is a pretty hilltop village located between the towns of Stroud and Cirencester and is ideally positioned for good access to Cheltenham and other major regional centres of employment. Unlike many Cotswold villages it has the traditional village pub and general stores/post office, all of which are on the doorstep from Hillcrest, and is a friendly community with a sought after primary school and a highly regarded secondary school – Thomas Keble. A Doctors Surgery, Chemist and Tesco Metro are located in nearby Bussage. The village enjoys a bus service to Stroud. Nearby Stroud and Kemble railway stations provide a direct line to London Paddington (90 minutes). Stroud is known for its weekly Farmers’ Market, has four supermarkets, Stroud High and Marling Grammar schools, a multi-plex cinema and a Leisure Centre
