Located in an elevated setting on the ‘sunny side’ of the Golden Valley enjoying extensive valley views, lies this pretty Cotswold stone semi-detached cottage. The current owner has improved and extended this period property to enhance the accommodation by adding a contemporary element to this traditional home. With a sloping hillside plot extending to just under half an acre, made up of terraces including a sun terrace, patio, kitchen garden and woodland, much privacy can be enjoyed throughout. For those wildlife enthusiasts it’s a perfect place to watch nature or maybe you wish to live a more self-sufficient life by growing veg, fruit and embracing the honey made by the bees. From the centrally located front door, access into a light and open hallway is located with entry into a smaller inner hall where the staircase can found. To the right is a delightful sitting room with Karndean flooring and a wood burner opening directly into a sun room with glazed roof, and French doors with glazed side panels. The dining room benefits from an exposed Cotswold stone wall with fireplace, sash windows with shutters to front and a door leading to a back passage (no access). The attractive fitted kitchen enjoys a variety of cupboards, shelving and drawers in addition to a further door leading to the front. On the first floor the family bathroom and two bedrooms are located, one with the luxury of either a dressing room or home office and a store room. The top level houses two further double bedrooms both with superb views. This delightful residence offers so much. A great sized plot, superb views, good sized family accommodation and many characters features. Parking is found on a first come first served basis on a narrow lane up from the London Road.
The extensive private grounds are a huge asset. They are mostly made up of terraced gardens in addition to sloping woodland. The gardens are divided into different areas. Directly in front of the cottage is a level gravelled area, partially covered, with attractive park fencing defining the boundary. Behind the house is a kitchen style garden with terraced veg beds and to the side of the cottage there are a couple of level seating areas, one surround by a mature rockery and the larger patio has a pergola, both benefit from incredible views. Pathways weave through the plot up to the woodland area. Access is via a shared path which leads in front of the adjoining cottage to a garden gate.
