Guide price

Bedrooms: 3
Charming unspoilt Grade II Listed cottage with a large garden, situated in a secluded village centre, in need of extensive modernisation.

Originally built in 1705, Mill Close is beautifully situated in a quiet location off the approach to St. Peter's & St. Paul's Church, originally forming part of a series of silk mills, which brought prosperity to the village in the late 18th and early 19th centuries0


In 1897 the Mill Pond fronting the terraced houses was developed to drive a generator which provided electricity for the whole village and following a fire in 1931 the property was rebuilt in its present form

These mills together with several terraces, set one behind the other on the valley side, give much of Blockley its distinctive character

5 Mill Close has high ceilings, and a light and bright atmosphere

There is a good-size hall connecting to all the ground floor accommodation

The sitting room is particularly impressive, measuring approximately 17'0" x 13'0" in total with exposed ceiling beams, an open brick fireplace and two large windows to the front aspect with stone mullion surround

There is a generous kitchen/dining room overlooking the pretty garden, a downstairs family bathroom and additional room siding onto the kitchen offering great potential as an adjoining utility room

To the first floor, the landing area enjoys an abundance of natural light, with three spacious bedrooms and a separate loo, offering great potential in adding a secondary stairwell to the roof space above, to create an additional bedroom, subject to the usual loft conversion planning and listed building consent

There is a restriction which does not allow the property to be holiday let
