An attractive detached period cottage situated towards the edge of this pretty Cotswold village within the picturesque Duntisbourne Valley. The property is believed to date back to the 16th century and has many character features including exposed stone walls and beams, stone mullion windows and a large inglenook fireplace with bread oven to one side. Mainly built of Cotswold stone, the cottage has over time been extended and now provides spacious living space arranged over two floors with a later addition to the front façade of a pitched roof open porch with double opening, part glazed oak doors. The sitting/dining room enjoys two wide stone mullion windows with further windows to the side and rear, one of which has a window seat. The kitchen breakfast room has been recently replaced, comprehensively fitted with a range of painted oak matching base and wall units. This also includes an integrated dishwasher, range cooker with coloured glass splash back and overhead extractor fan. To the first floor are three bedrooms, two of which have built-in double wardrobes and stone mullion windows. In addition the master bedroom enjoys dual aspect windows and the second bedroom has a large fireplace (blocked) with stone surround. The bathroom is fitted with a three piece white suite and includes an electric shower unit over the bath.
The village lies within the Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and is located on both sides a valley, surrounded by classic Cotswold countryside bisected by winding country lanes. Cirencester (6 miles) has an excellent range of shops and services and Cheltenham is the main regional centre. Bath, Bristol, Swindon and Oxford are also within daily commuting distance. Kemble Station (London Paddington 75 minutes approx) is about 9 miles and the village is conveniently about a mile from the A417 for dual carriageway access to Junction 15 of the M4 at Swindon.
The gardens are a significant feature of this property and extend, in total, to approximately 0.24 acres enjoying beautiful views over the surrounding countryside.
From the village lane, a gravelled driveway leads through an opening in the Cotswold stone wall to a parking area, screened from the cottage by a hedge. The gardens are enclosed and mainly laid to lawn with various well stocked flower and shrub borders providing a range of stone outbuildings including a Garden Shed, log store and original stone Privy. Stone steps lead down to a lower area of garden which is less formal with a spring rising into a small stream creating a super location for the Gunnera plants and flag iris’s in which to grow.
