swiss cottage, high street, bisley, stroud, gl6 7ba

located in the centre of a quintessential cotswold village, lies this traditional two bedroom stone cottage, in need of some upgrading.

The Property

Set in a conservation area within the beautiful and historic Cotswold village of Bisley, lies this traditional stone cottage with two reception rooms and two double bedrooms, a private courtyard and the potential to park one small car. This period cottage oozes charm and character and has surprisingly sizable reception rooms although some modernisation and restoration is now needed. The owners believe that the refurbishment/re-newel of the windows, re-wiring and a new boiler would all be required. Entry is through a period wooden front door which leads directly into the sitting/dining room but it is likely the day to day entrance will be directly into the kitchen from the side door. The sitting room is the original part of the cottage with a wooden floor, windows and shutters either side of the front door, one benefitting from a window seat. An exposed Cotswold stone fireplace with stone hearth and wood burner sits centrally on one wall; it’s unlikely this wood-burner will comply with today’s building regulations, so it might require replacing along with the chimney lining. Two period built-in cupboards are also found in this delightful room. Stepping through into the extension, you’ll be greeted by another superb reception room flooded with light from the skylights in the vaulted ceiling and the one wall housing french doors with glass panels either side. The fitted kitchen has exposed beams and a quarry tiled floor, in addition to housing the staircase. Upstairs there are two double bedrooms, one facing the High Street. Both have built-in storage and one has an exposed Cotswold stone wall with window seat over looking the courtyard. The bathroom sits centrally between the two, and the boiler is found in a cupboard on the landing. This home offers someone a great opportunity to embrace village life and become part of the-local community.

Outside

Behind double wooden gates lies a small L￾shaped courtyard offering privacy and an area to park a small car in addition to further space to have a table for entertaining. This low maintenance area benefits from privacy and houses a shed. Access into extended reception room and kitchen can be located from this side garden.
