The Property

A detached period home tucked away in a pretty Cotswold village setting. Built in traditional Cotswold stone, the property exudes character with features such as exposed beams and stone mullion windows peppered throughout. Having been extended in more recent years, the house now provides well proportioned family accommodation that measures just over 2000 sq ft. The living area connects particularly well to the outside space, with doors from both the kitchen and sitting room opening to the main garden. Whilst not the original entrance to the old cottage, the canopied entrance porch, now used as the main door opens to the 1st floor, a built-in Settle provides a useful seat for putting on shoes, stairs lead down to the living space. The sitting room oozes character with a pretty fireplace with woodburning stove inset forming a warming focal point. Exposed beams further add to the rooms charm whilst a stone mullion window with window seat and a door open to the front garden. Oak flooring flows from the sitting room through to the snug/study. Adjoining the snug/study is the sociable family kitchen which provides plentiful room for dining and entertaining. The room enjoys a tiled floor, bespoke cabinets and a gas fired Aga. A triple aspect outlook enables year round enjoyment of the garden from the warmth of your kitchen. Also located on this floor is a utility/cloakroom. Three bedrooms are positioned on the first floor, all of which enjoy a wooded outlook.
