The Property

The main entrance opens to an inner hallway, where the old staircase rises to the main bedroom suite and doors radiate to the living space. The sitting room is located in the original part of the house, stone mullion windows provide a double aspect outlook, whilst a fireplace with woodburner inset makes this an exceptionally cosy room, ideal for the autumn/winter months, a door opens to the garden. Window shutters and an exposed beam further enhance the rooms immense charm. The wonderful family kitchen forms an inviting and sociable hub to the house, providing room for dining and a small sofa if desired. A large window allows for year-round enjoyment of the pretty Cotswold setting. Oak flooring runs throughout the kitchen and a range is used for cooking. French doors open to the garden, a modern staircase rises to a further two bedrooms and double doors open to the living room. The living room is a fantastic room, similarly boasting a double aspect outlook and with a further woodburning stove providing a feature to the room. A useful utility is also located on this floor.

The cottage is approached via a gravel driveway that drops down to the cottage and provides parking for several vehicles. A large timber shed offers great outside storage. A pathway from the driveway meanders to the front of the cottage. The grounds have been beautifully landscaped over the years to offer great privacy, excellent opportunity for children to play and plenty for the keen gardener to get their teeth stuck into. Extensive flower borders are peppered throughout the garden and are currently a riot of colour. Areas of lawn, including a particularly large expanse of lawn bordering a neighbouring paddock offer the perfect environment for young children to play. Other features include a pond, enclosed vegetable garden with raised beds and a greenhouse as well as several areas for alfresco dining. An area of woodland lies to the south-western boundary.
