    About this property

    • Orchard Cottage is an excellent example of a Victorian Cotswold cottage and is built of mellow stone under a tiled roof. Internally it retains many of the expected period features including exposed timbers, deep window sills and an impressive inglenook fireplace.

      The front door leads to the entrance hall which leads into a charming double aspect sitting room with beamed ceiling and handsome inglenook fireplace. Double doors lead out to the garden. The kitchen/breakfast room can be accessed directly from the front of the property or via the hall and is light and airy with attractive painted cabinets and a range oven. There is ample space for a table and chairs. A door leads to a good sized utility/boot room with a cloakroom and access to the rear.

      On the first floor is the master bedroom with fitted cupboards, painted ceiling timbers and en suite bathroom. Also on the first floor is a further bedroom and family shower room. On the second floor is bedroom three which has exposed timbers.

      The property is approached over a shared driveway and onwards to a gravelled parking area in front of the house. The front garden is predominantly laid to lawn surrounded by Cotswold stone walling. The rear garden is also lawned and together with the garaging has a separate vehicular access.

      The property is very well presented and is likely to appeal to those looking for a second home, investment property or smaller Cotswold home with charm.
