Period elegance, charm and quite a few surprises with this house. Tucked away close to the centre of town, do not judge this book by its cover!

A stunning example of never judging a book by its cover, this lovely house is tucked away but a short stroll from the centre of town, and opens like a Tardis into the most glorious of accommodation with quirky features and plenty of period charm.

Approached into the hallway through a brand new, extremely beautiful front door which has incorporated the features from the original door, the hallway has a large walk in cupboard and leads into the sitting room. This light filled room has a large inglenook fireplace complete with a gas fire, windows which overlook the courtyard garden and plenty of beams and character. A cleverly hidden personal door leads into the double garage and stairs lead up to the first floor.

A curved corridor with a charming stained-glass window draws you into a fabulous sitting and dining room with a kitchen at one end. Double doors lead into the courtyard and there is an adjacent utility room with plenty of storage and plumbing for a washing machine. The kitchen has a large island unit with an integrated sink and dishwasher, there is a four oven Aga and underfloor heating runs throughout this room under the limestone flag flooring. An internal hallway has light flooding through light boxes in the ceiling and could be used as a library or office, stairs lead up to the garden room with views over a swimming pool, and garden; in need of some maintenance and adjacent to the garden room is a cloakroom.

The master bedroom is on the ground floor with double doors into the courtyard, two in built cupboards provide plenty of storage. The en-suite bathroom is a magnificent room with views of the garden, a standalone bath in the centre of the room and a separate shower. On the first floor are three bedrooms, all with en-suite bathrooms and a wide landing with storage.

Outside there is a small driveway leading to the double garage, the courtyard in the centre of the house has gated access into The Ferns, a moment away from the doctor's surgery. The other garden has a swimming pool complete with a pump house; this is completely private, and in need of some repair.

Tetbury, often referred to as the gateway to the Cotswolds, and once voted by Country Life magazine as the third most desirable town in the country, is a thriving historic Cotswold market town situated less than half an hour from both the M4 and M5 motorways and within easy reach of Cirencester, Cheltenham, Bath, Bristol and Swindon.
