The Property

A delightful period cottage occupying a pretty Cotswold village setting. The property is hugely deceptive from the front elevation, having been extended in more recent history and now providing comprehensive accommodation for modern living. Rich in character, period features are peppered throughout and include exposed Cotswold stone, two feature
fireplaces and exposed beams. The main entrance opens into a cosy sitting room where a fireplace with woodburning stove inset forms a warming focal point to the room, this leads on to a snug/study, currently set up for use as a playroom. From the snug a trap door lifts to the lower ground floor accommodation. At the rear of the cottage with French doors opening to the garden lies a most impressive sociable kitchen. With plentiful room for the dining, the kitchen is fitted with a range of base units with open shelving above. Beech worktops and a belfast sink add to the character of the room. A door from the kitchen opens to a useful utility cupboard. A family bathroom with shower over the bath is also located on this level. A staircase from the snug rises to the first floor where two bedrooms are positioned, the smaller of the two enjoying a particularly tall ceiling. Positioned on the lower ground floor, with a window to the front elevation, is a further versatile room with a pretty Cotswold stone fireplace with grate inset. This has had many uses during the vendors ownership including use as guest accommodation, however, is currently utilised as additional living space.


An enclosed garden lies to the rear of the property and can be accessed via French doors opening from the kitchen or via right a way through the neighbours property from the lane.
A paved seating terrace ideal for outside dining lies immediately adjacent to the kitchen from which steps rise to an area of lawn. A timber shed provides outside storage as does a void under the kitchen extention.
