A pretty, detached period cottage set in a highly desirable Cotswold village.
Hillside is a delightful Cotswold stone cottage with a slate pitched roof which is found in the heart of the village. Originally built as two cottages, the property is a rare find being of a size and type that is rarely made available in the current market. However, a buyer will take the opportunity to generally upgrade the accommodation. In doing so a very comfortable and easily managed home will be created.
Approached through a covered porch, the detached cottage provides for a dining hall with stone fireplace and wood burning stove. Steps lead up to the kitchen which has windows on three sides and is fitted with cupboards and a cast iron, oil fired range. The sitting room is at the opposite end of the cottage and features a full height stone fireplace with a wood burning stove. There is also a glazed door providing access to the garden through a second porch. A staircase rises to a first floor landing off which are two bedrooms, each with wash hand basins and fitted wardrobes. The bathroom is positioned between the two and has a separate shower unit above the bath. The loft is accessed from the kitchen and one of the bedrooms.
The charm of the cottage is matched by the mature garden which is approached through a picket gate, Enclosed by stone walling, the garden is triangular in shape and made private by a variety of, trees, shrubs and a very established rambling rose. The flagstone terrace and lawn make for sunny sitting out areas which look down towards the summerhouse.. To the rear of the cottage there is a garden shed and private parking for two smaller cars.

I really enjoy selling properties in Compton Abdale, a gem of of a Cotswold village and yet so accessible, Hillside is also a rare find and a cottage which will make a perfect retreat.Anthony Coaker
