An imaginative conversion of a Cotswold stone barn situated in an idyllic and peaceful rural situation.
PuddleDuck Cottage is situated in a tranquil position, adjacent to the River Leach and one of nine properties which probably date back to the 18th Century. Imaginatively converted in the 1980's, the property has been considerably improved by the present owner and now offers versatile and well planned accommodation which is beautifully presented throughout. The rooms are also light and airy with nearly all opening out onto the south and west facing courtyard. The L shaped layout certainly creates a feeling of space and the conservatory is a splendid addition which is suitable for all year round enjoyment.
The property is entered through the conservatory which doubles as a dining and family room. A further sitting room benefits from a wood burning stove, ceiling beam and windows to three elevations. The kitchen/breakfast room is well fitted, includes an Aga range and along with the conservatory benefits from underfloor heating. Adjacent is the cloakroom, utility/boot room and a dressing room which could be used as a study. The dressing room connects with the lovely main bedroom with vaulted ceiling, fitted wardrobes and an en suite shower room. Each of the two first floor bedrooms are approached by their own staircase and have their own bathrooms.
A garden gate leads into a delightful courtyard garden which is enclosed by a high Cotswold stone wall. Facing south and west it is a perfect sun trap and relatively maintenance free. On the opposite side of the drive is a peaceful area of garden which is mainly lawned. A raised decking area sits over the stream and faces meadowland, a perfect place to relax and enjoy the wildlife. Also a garden shed, a greenhouse and vegetable bed. Private parking for a number of cars.
