The Property

Tucked below a country lane in an elevated setting, Mugmore Cottage commands fantastic panoramic valley views. Access to the property is found behind Cotswold stone walling with hedging providing complete privacy. There are two gated entrances, both with steps leading down to either the ground floor or the first level. Within our vendors ownership they have renovated, extended and re-configured the accommodation to create a superb home with contemporary style living, surrounded by period character features such as original wide wooden floor boards and exposed Cotswold stone walls. The ground floor has the advantage of under floor heating under flagstones and has been masterfully opened up into different zones with pillars and moveable shelving. A fitted kitchen, made by Woodchester Kitchens, sits at one end commanding breathtaking views, with a snug area enjoying a wood burning stove. Centrally there are two divided areas, currently utilised as secondary seating area and more formal dining area with French doors leading to the outside area. At the other end, two further zones can be found one with an original curved stone ceiling. These spaces can be used however you wish; presently one is a gym. The first floor, accessed via an ornate cast iron staircase, houses a home office, two bedrooms, family bathroom, utility area, an external door and spiral cast iron staircase leading up to the top floor. The whole top floor represents the extravagant main bedroom suite with a vaulted ceiling, stunning views, walk-in wardrobe and large ensuite bathroom boasting both a free standing claw foot bath and walk-in double shower unit, along side a WC and basin.


The outstanding and professionally landscaped terraced gardens are a huge asset to this property and must be seen to be appreciated. Every inch has been designed around highlighting the incredible far reaching views towards the River Severn and beyond. Beautiful Cotswold stone walls, stone steps and pathways cleverly divide the grounds into separate areas including level lawns and various sun terraces. Close to the highest area is decked terrace with a cedar clad hot tub and a quality wooden shed. There are two gated entrances, one from the country lane and the other directly from the double parking bay and single garage which benefits from an electric up and over door. If you enjoy a view, privacy and outdoor entertaining then this garden will knock your socks off.
