About this property

  • Rectory Cottage is a charming Cotswold stone property, believed to date from around the mid 1800's. The current owners, who have lived there for around 30 years, have in their time carried out works to the cottage, including adding the conservatory and constructing the annexe. Both of the reception rooms have ‘Clearview' steel wood burners, and there is a parquet wood floor running through the entrance hall and reception rooms. The windows and conservatory are double glazed with ‘Pilkington Activ' self cleaning glass and the property benefits from Gigaclear fast broadband. The attic space is boarded with roof windows and may offer scope for further accommodation if required.

    Set away from the house is the annexe. This is a two storey detached building in Cotswold stone under a pitched tiled roof. The property is ready for a range of uses such as additional accommodation, a workshop, studio or similar, with electricity, a cloakroom and a water supply internally, and is plastered and painted, with an internal staircase to the first floor, with double glazed windows.

    Outside the property benefits from two driveways from the village lane, one leading to the annexe building, together with a gravelled area offering ample parking plus hardstanding for a caravan or similar. The other driveway runs beside the house and offers further parking.

    The gardens have been beautifully landscaped with an exceptional planting scheme providing a profusion of colour throughout the seasons and include many flower and herbaceous borders, mature trees and shrubs, plus an abundance of spring bulbs. The gardens offer stunning views across open farmland and provide a tranquil setting for the house.
