The Property

This charming Grade II listed cottage was extended and renovated to a very high standard about 14 years ago. Features include a log burning stove, sash windows and some exposed beams. A particular feature is the luxury bathroom with separate 'walk in' shower. There are oak doors, skirtings and architrave. The current owners purchased in 2012 and have re-tiled the left hand roof slope, both front and back, with stone tiles. In addition they have refitted the kitchen units, added some secondary glazing and replaced the gas boiler.

The Accommodation

The front door opens into a charming sitting/dining room with log burning stove. At the rear is the kitchen/breakfast room with access to the garden. There is an electric double oven, induction hob with extractor hood over and an integrated slimline dishwasher. Off the kitchen is a handy utility room with plumbing for a washing machine, space for a tumble drier and a fridge/freezer. Adjacent is a useful cloakroom. Off the inner hall a door leads to the integral garage. An oak staircase with handrails leads to the first floor. There is storage under and a glazed screen above which floods the stairwell with natural light. The good-sized master bedroom has a vaulted ceiling. Next door is another double bedroom with fitted shelved cupboard. At the rear there is a small double overlooking the garden. From here there is an access hatch to the loft space with ladder and light. The luxury bathroom has a double ended bath, WC, vanity basin and a large walk-in shower.


The garden has been terraced and landscaped with a flagstone patio adjoining the kitchen and stone steps leading up to a lawned area with well stocked flower borders. The garden is enclosed with a mix of Cotswold stone walling and fencing. At the top of the garden is studio building with power and light. While in need of some attention, it would make a lovely garden room or home office.
