About this property

  • Formerly two terraced cottages, West Hill dates from the early to mid-nineteenth century. The property is Grade II listed and is constructed of limestone rubble beneath a stone slate roof with Ashlar stacks. Internally it retains many of the expected period features including exposed timbers and deep sills.

    A rose-covered porch to the front leads directly into a charming sitting room with attractive inglenook fireplace. The back door opens into a utility room and cloakroom. A door opens to a rear passageway which leads to the sitting room and kitchen. The kitchen/breakfast room is fitted with a range of wall and base units and there is room for a table and chairs. Steps lead to the triple aspect dining room with exposed stone wall, extensive ceiling timbers and fireplace. A staircase rises from the sitting room to the first floor landing where there are three good sized bedrooms and a family bathroom with separate shower cubicle.

    A drive with gates lies to the side of the property providing off street parking. A gravelled area lies to the rear which is ideal for al fresco dining whilst enjoying the view across the mature and gently ascending garden which is a good size and mainly laid to lawn with mature shrubs and trees. There is also a very useful outbuilding.

    The property is charming and is likely to appeal to those looking for a second home, investment property or permanent Cotswold home.

West Hill offers everything you would expect from a Cotswold cottage from exposed timbers to roses around the door in one of my favourite villages.
