About this property

  • Situated on a no through lane, in a conservation area of the village, Fox Cottage is believed to have origins dating to the early 1800s. Not listed, and constructed of stone beneath a pitched slate roof, the property was extended in the 1980s and has more recently been sympathetically updated by the current owners with works including new windows, boiler, radiators, re-wiring and plumbing. Accommodation successfully combines charming original period features such as exposed timbers and window seats, with today's modern comforts.

    The main reception room, with wood burner, is open plan with sitting and dining areas. The hand built ‘Evie Willow' kitchen has an electric Aga and integrated appliances include fridge freezer and dishwasher. The rear hall opens to the utility/boot room (ideal for dogs and wellies). On the first floor the principal bedroom enjoys views to the rear over neighbouring fields and has an ensuite bathroom. There are three further bedrooms and a family bathroom accessed by a separate staircase.

    The attached double garage is great if you love your cars or need lots of storage, but alternatively offers scope to extend the residential living space depending on needs.

    Outside, there is gravel off street parking and pretty enclosed garden to the rear with terrace area and a stone outbuilding which offers scope for modernising/other uses subject to relevant consents.

    Opposite the house, across the lane, there is an area of additional walled garden which is currently rented by the current owners from the church for peppercorn rent. It will be possible for the new owner to continue the arrangement.

Situated on a no through lane in one of my favourite Cotswold villages, this is a truly gorgeous cottage. Must be seen!
