The Property

Tucked away in the village of Chalford, nestled off the beaten track, yet within reach of the village community and amenities, lies this semi detached period home. Sycamore Cottage enjoys the most wonderful elevated views of the village high street, with the wooded backdrop beyond offering a magical outlook throughout the seasons. Formerly a modest cottage, the existing owner has sympathetically extended the house to create a wonderful family home. A useful boot room is now used as the main entrance to the cottage, providing storage for coats and shoes, this leads through to the living space. The kitchen/dining room has been fitted with shaker style units, a flagstone floor and provides room for dining, French doors open to the garden. A useful utility/cloakroom adjoins the kitchen. The property boasts two reception rooms, a family room with woodburning stove is accessed off the kitchen, this in turn leads onto a formal sitting room with feature fireplace. Four bedrooms are located on the first floor. Bedrooms two three are positioned to the front of the cottage, thus enjoying an elevated outlook over the garden and village beyond, A guest bedroom with Velux window is positioned to the rear of the property. All three bedrooms are served by a contemporary family bathroom. The main bedroom suite is particularly impressive, generous in the size the room is served by a stylish ensuite shower room and enjoys French doors opening to a beautiful decked terrace, the perfect place to enjoy a morning coffee or evening G & T. Both the ensuite and family bathroom are warmed by underfloor heating


The property is approached via a footpath, this is accessible from both Chalford High Street and Coppice Hill. The garden is arranged across three terraces, with the main terrace immediately adjoining the cottage. Laid to lawn and planted with trees and shrubs, the area enjoys a pretty view across the village roof tops to the wooded valley beyond. A sheltered seating area with adjoining storage shed, offers a fantastic spot to enjoy the pretty view and garden come rain or shine. An uncultivated terrace extends below offering a blank canvass for the keen gardener. A small area of garden extends to the rear. The current vendor informs us that they have enjoyed unrestricted use for 20 years of land rising behind the property, through which they have created steps leading to the upper footpath. At present this does not form part of the title. Please note that the property is registered across two titles.
