About this property

  • Garden Cottage is a charming Cotswold stone cottage, approached off a country lane and set in the picturesque Churn Valley, river being a tributary of the River Thames. The property has been in the same ownership for nearly 20 years and a degree of updating is now required. However, its charm and character are self evident and there is potential to create even more living space if required, subject to consents being obtained.

    The rooms are well laid out to include two principal reception rooms; a beamed sitting room with wood burning stove and a drawing room. The latter is a very appealing room with a dressed stone fireplace, windows to two elevations and sliding patio doors leading out onto the riverside terrace. The fitted kitchen is found to the rear and enjoys an open aspect up the valley. Adjacent is the breakfast room albeit being very much part of the kitchen. There is also a cloakroom off the hall and a boot room to the side. A covered passage way leads to the integral double garage which could be converted to additional living accommodation, subject to necessary consents being obtained.

    On the first floor there are five main bedrooms, the principal bedroom having an en suite bathroom, fitted wardrobes and a dual aspect. The guest bedroom at the opposite end of the house includes a bathroom (not fully connected) and a dressing room which could be used an occasional study. The three further bedrooms on this floor are served by a family bathroom. A staircase leads to the second floor where there is a sixth bedroom with Velux roof lights. A Slingsby type ladder provides access from the landing to a further attic space.

    Extending to about 1 acre, the garden and grounds are a major feature of the property. The River Churn meanders through the grounds and creates an idyllic setting. Two bridges cross the river to a more natural area with mature trees and surrounded by farmland. Immediately to the front of the cottage is ample parking for a number of cars and close to the entrance is a small paddock.

    Right of Way: Garden Cottage has the benefit of a vehicular right of access along parts of the Northern boundary. It extends from the five-bar gate on the lane, to beyond the five bar gate on the Northern boundary.

How relaxing to sit on the terrace watching the river flow by.
