The Property

A detached C17th Grade II listed cottage, set within the heart of the Chalford community and providing immense character. Having been lovingly upgraded by the existing owners, the cottage now offers contemporary living whilst being sympathetic to its history. Tucked away off the village High Street, steps down provide access to a small front courtyard and original front entrance. From a quarry tiled entrance hall doors open to the living space. The kitchen is positioned to the rear of the property with an outlook to the river and wooded embankment beyond. The vendors upgraded the original kitchen, commissioning Woodchester Kitchens to make cabinets to one side. A granite worktop above further enhances its appeal. The kitchen is fitted with a range cooker with extractor hood over. The adjoining dining room is open-plan to the kitchen, where a further window overlooks the rear elevation and a door opens to the enclosed rear garden. Adjacent to the kitchen lies a rear hallway, useful utility room and downstairs cloakroom, all invaluable facilities for everyday life. The sitting room can be accessed from the dining arear or front hallway. Double aspect windows, including a stone mullion to the front elevation encourage the free flow of light, whilst an inglenook fireplace with woodburner offer a stunning focal point to the room. A staircase rises to the first floor. Three bedrooms are positioned on the first floor, two double bedrooms overlook the rear garden. Bedroom three boasts a connecting room currently used as a home office. All three bedrooms are served by a beautiful family shower room with shower enclosure and a corner sink with vanity storage under. The main bedroom suite sits across the first floor. With exposed A frame beams and bespoke built in storage, the room really does offer the ‘wow’ factor. An ensuite bathroom with large shower enclosure, bath and built in storage under the sink adds a feeling of luxury.  Low risk flood area for rivers and sea. High risk for surface water.
