About this property

  • Vine Cottage is a Grade II listed property which is understood to date back to the late 18th Century. The property was bought by the present owners about 8 years ago and in this time the cottage has been transformed into a stylish home, full of character and versatile in layout. On the ground floor there are two principal reception rooms. The principal one having a wide open fireplace, ceiling beams and doors leading out to an enclosed garden. The sitting room also has a beamed ceiling and an inglenook fireplace. The kitchen is next door and incorporates a spacious dining area. It is well fitted and has access to the side garden. Adjacent is the utility area with ample additional storage and a larder, off which is a cloakroom.

    On the first floor there are four bedrooms served by three bath/shower rooms (one being on the ground floor). The bedroom accessed from the drawing room has a vaulted beamed ceiling and could also make a splendid play room or home office. From the secondary landing a spiral staircase rises to the second floor where there is a further double bedroom and shower room. Consent exists to convert the remaining attic area if required.

    In total the accommodation extends to nearly 3,000 square feet.

    Outside there is a large single garage, two garden stores and pretty rear and side gardens. The latter is partly defined with Cotswold stone slabs, a particular feature of the village.
