    About this property

    • Old Farm Cottage is a Grade II listed semi-detached property situated at the heart of the thriving village of Longborough. The property originally formed part of The Old Farmhouse and is constructed from coursed square and dressed Cotswold stone with two and three-light double-chamfered, stone-mullioned casements, stopped hoods and horizontal glazing bars.

      Old Farm Cottage is beautifully presented and retains some charming period features associated with properties of this type and age. Of particular note is the well proportioned drawing room with handsome stone fireplace and views over the courtyard garden. The dining room is conveniently located adjacent to the well appointed country style kitchen which is fitted with a comprehensive range of wall and base cabinets and integrated appliances. There is space for a table and chairs. The charming sitting room with inglenook fireplace is a wonderful room to retire to. Also on the ground floor is a utility room and guest cloakroom.

      From the dining room a staircase provides access to the first floor landing. The master bedroom has a well appointed shower room and a range of fitted cupboards. There are two further bedrooms on the first floor, one with an en suite cloakroom, and a family bathroom. A further staircase leads to bedroom four on the second floor. There is also a store room. The layout and presentation of the accommodation is ideal for family life and for those who love to entertain.

      To one side a path leads through an arch and on to the rear where double gates lead to an enclosed low maintenance courtyard garden with terracing interspersed with shrubs and perennials. The courtyard is well located to catch the sun. Vehicular access is via a lane off the High Street which leads around the back of several properties to two garages and additional parking.
