About this property

  • Kestrel Cottage is a two bedroom period house, which has recently undergone extensive renovation and refurbishment by the current owner to now create a very comfortable home. The cottage is set well back from the road in a quiet and private setting, yet is within close proximity to all local amenities.

    Approached via a welcoming entrance lobby, which is open plan to the sitting room, there are three windows, one to the front, side and rear, providing plenty of natural light. There are built in book shelves plus exposed brickwork, ceiling beams and flag limestone flooring, all features that enhance the traditional feel and charm of the cottage.

    The kitchen/dining room is a particular feature, being very spacious and providing an extensive range of cottage style wall and base units along with integrated appliances including dishwasher and range master as well as a Miele washing machine. With two windows to the front, this room greatly enjoys the benefit of a south facing aspect. There is also space for a good sized dining table and once again there are painted ceiling beams and flag limestone flooring.

    From the sitting room there are stairs rising to the first floor, with the landing providing doors off to two double bedrooms. The dual aspect master bedroom has an en suite shower room and three built in wardrobes along with a very useful study with integrated storage, shelving and desk unit. The second bedroom has eaves storage, a built in cupboard housing the immersion tank, a large Velux window to the front and an en suite bathroom.

    Outside, is a recently completed gravel courtyard with paved slabs in the centre leading to the front door. There is trellis fencing, which with climbing plants or roses could increase one's privacy further. There are also one parking space.

This cute cottage, located in the heart of Lechlade would be the perfect home for a professional couple or family.

Local information

  • Lechlade is a small Cotswold market town situated at the southern borders of the Cotswolds where the rivers Coln and Leach join the Thames. For centuries Lechlade was one of the main trade arteries west from London, by both road and river. Leisure boats have replaced the trading vessels and Lechlade is now a favourite mooring place.
  • Excellent facilities are available in the town with more specialist shops being found in Burford and Witney where there are larger supermarkets. Communications are also first class with the town being midway between the M4 J15, 14 miles away and the M40 J8, 35 miles away. It is convenient for road links to Cirencester, Cheltenham and Oxford, whilst main line stations are located in Swindon, Charlbury and Didcot providing a regular service to London Paddington.
  • There is an excellent choice of private schools in the area including Hatherop Castle, St Hugh's and Cokethorpe as well as a further choice in and around Oxford, Abingdon and Cheltenham. Equally, Lechlade has an excellent primary school and Farmor's at nearby Fairford is well regarded for secondary education.
