About this property

  • Keeper's Cottage is set back off the village street in the heart of Windrush between the Upper and Lower Village Greens with far reaching views across the valley to Barrington Park's beautiful dovecote. The Cotswold stone property was constructed in 1911 as one of Lord Sherborne's estate cottages. A gabled stone porch leads into the entrance hall with its' original quarry tiled floor. To the right of the hall is the double aspect sitting room with a stone fireplace housing and built in shelves.

    Across the hall is a double aspect family room, again with new built in cupboards and shelves to either side of a stone fireplace with a new wood burning stove and sisal floor. The dining room leads to the kitchen which is fitted with an excellent range of cabinets and equipment and has a beautiful view over the garden. On the first floor there are two bedrooms (the main bedroom with fitted wardrobes and a guest room) and a bathroom with roll top bath, all with pretty period fireplaces.

    To the rear of the property is a good-sized and secluded garden with a lawn, mature trees and shrubs. There is a paved terrace which is ideal for al fresco dining with access from the kitchen. A gravel path leads to the end of the garden where the original stone pig sty is now used as a wood store and garden shed. Wonderful bucolic views can be enjoyed from the garden, which also has access via a separate path from the front of the cottage.

    The property has been very well maintained by the current owners who have overseen an extensive programme of refurbishment over the last two years.

    The property will appeal specifically to discerning buyers looking for a smaller permanent home, weekend retreat or holiday cottage.

In my opinion Keeper's Cottage could not be in a more idyllic setting with views across estate land towards a beautiful dovecote. Heaven.
