A beautiful detached period home, providing bright and well appointed accommodation.
Having been extended and refurbished by the current owners, The Vale Cottage provides both charm and character whilst offering contemporary living. Located on the outskirts of Cirencester the house enjoys a semi-rural location, benefiting from the convenience of Cirencester just 1.4 miles away. A bespoke oak porch opens to an inner hall off which doors radiate to the living space, cloakroom, utility and stairs rise to the first floor. The sociable family kitchen is most impressive, owing in part to its size, but also its connection to the garden. Limestone tiles follow through from the inner hall whilst a comprehensive range of wall units, a belfast sink and quartz worktop provide a stylish finish to the room. A mustard splashback behind the range cooker offers a pop of colour and an integral dishwasher sits aside the sink. From the kitchen bi-fold doors lead to a sheltered seating terrace and the room opens to a snug/playroom. A separate utility offers essential day to day facilities and further storage. From the snug a door leads to the generous sitting room. double aspect windows to the front and rear flood the room with light whilst a fireplace with woodburner forms a warming focal point to the room. From the landing on the second floor, doors lead to 4 bedrooms and a family bathroom. Bedroom one is particularly splendid, being generous in size, affording a dual aspect and served by a dressing room and ensuite.

A large expanse of lawn flanked by mature flower borders extends to the side. A paved seating terrace connects to the house, whilst a raised decked terrace wraps around two sides of the cottage.
