    About this property

    • Hill Cottage is a charming Cotswold stone period property situated in an elevated position on the edge of the village, enjoying wonderful rural views. The property is believed to date from the early 18th century and extended in the early 21st century. The beautifully presented accommodation is set out over two floors and is decorated in a subtle palette of colours throughout.

      Hill Cottage is approached from the village lane over a private drive which leads to a garage and parking. The front garden is lovely with an area of lawn and well-stocked beds contained within low Cotswold stone walls. The front door opens into a well-proportioned sitting room with open fire and views of the countryside. To the rear of the house is a dining room with a fireplace housing a wood burning stove and double doors opening out to the terrace. There is a charming kitchen fitted with an excellent range of cabinets and plenty of room for a table and chairs. Situated off the kitchen is a useful utility with access to the garden, perfect for rural life. Completing the ground floor is a WC.

      On the first floor is a spacious dual aspect principal bedroom with en suite shower room and fitted cupboards. There are three further excellent bedrooms and a family bathroom.

      The principal garden lies to the rear and gently slopes upwards. The garden is full of character with areas of lawn, well-stocked beds, specimen trees and an area for growing vegetables and berries. A paved south-facing terrace adjoining the house is the perfect place to enjoy a coffee or glass of wine. A special feature of the garden is the wonderful summer house which is ideal for a number of uses such as entertaining, reading, art studio or home office. There is also a useful former stone pig sty, shed and a green house.
