About this property

  • Willow End dates back to the 1800s and is constructed of Cotswold stone beneath a tiled roof. The property offers an abundance of character features throughout including exposed Cotswold stone walls and timbers, polished Cotswold stone floors and oak doors. The accommodation is light and spacious with a number of glazed doors and panels overlooking the pretty garden and grounds and Velux windows which flood the home with light. The property is accessed from the rear door which leads into the hall. The living room, which is a modern extension with some of the best views in Blockley, has separate underfloor electric heating. There are two double bedrooms on the first floor one with an en suite shower room and a bathroom on the ground floor. There is a useful loft room above the sitting room, currently used as an office accessed via a ladder. This room could make an ideal third bedroom and the property comes with architectural drawings and consent to create this.

    The peaceful gardens are mainly laid to lawn and surround three sides of the property including a terrace for entertaining. Communal gardens beyond run down to Blockley Brook. There are two parking spaces belonging to Willow End within the shared gravelled driveway.
