Charming detached cottage on the edge of a sought after village.
The Thatched Cottage offers the rare opportunity of an attractive, detached cottage on the edge of a sought after village and backing onto open countryside. The property, which is thought to date from 1622 and is Grade II listed, benefits from a wealth of period features and has been sympathetically restored to provide a stylish, modern interior, whilst maximizing the traditional elements of the house.
The open plan sitting room / dining room has exposed beams, traditional tile flooring and an exposed stone, inglenook fireplace with a wood burner.
The kitchen has been refitted by the current owners and with base and wall units with oak doors, Indian granite work tops, wooden breakfast bar, ceramic sink. A door leads from the kitchen to the rear porch area and on to the garden.
The downstairs bathroom, which offers scope to further improve the property, comprises a bath with shower over, WC and sink unit.
On the first floor are two double bedrooms, both with in-built cupboards and exposed beams. The master bedroom has wonderful countryside views and the second bedroom also includes an alcove / dressing table.
The house is set within the middle of it's landscaped gardens and backs onto rolling open countryside. The garden includes areas of terrace perfect for alfresco dining, paved pathways for accessing the house and studio and lawn. The garden also features a Sedum blanket along to the rear of the house, two olive trees and a wisteria, which help to give the garden a welcoming feel.
Constructed in 2018, within the garden is an oak framed and Wanea Oak clad studio / summer house. It has been built to a high specification and provides a really useful additional space, suitable for a variety of purposes.
There is also a timber garden shed and two off road parking spaces.
The current owner has carried out a significant amount of work to the property in recent years including replacing the kitchen, re-thatching, landscaping the garden and building the summerhouse / studio.
The Thatched Cottage offers a picturesque escape to the country. It's edge of village location and proximity to all the Cotswolds has to offer, combined with its period charm mean it will appeal to owner occupier and second home buyers alike.
