Cotswold cottage with no onward chain
- End of Terrace
A double fronted cottage with sash windows and exposed beams throughout. The entrance door leads directly into the sitting room which features an inglenook fireplace with a log burner that is the real focal point of the room. The dining room is located off the sitting room with a window overlooking the front garden, a fireplace (currently blocked off) and a serving hatch to the kitchen.
To the rear of the property is a newly fitted galley kitchen with the red Aga taking pride of place. There is an excellent range of base and wall Shaker style units with granite worktops and upstands and Butler sink inset. Both the sitting room and dining room have access to the kitchen. Adjacent to the kitchen is a rear lobby with access to the garden. The bathroom is located off this lobby area and comprises a modern white suite.
The enclosed spiral staircase leading to the first and second floors is accessed via the sitting room. At first floor level the staircase opens onto a cosy landing with a window to the front and window seat. Two bedrooms are to be found on this level, one being dual aspect with a period fireplace and double fitted wardrobe.
The stairs continue up to the second floor and the attic bedroom has plumbing in place to create an en suite shower room.
At the front of the property there are two shingle beds either side of the front door offering a buffer between the property and the pavement. The rear garden extends over 50 and is enclosed by walls on three sides and predominately laid to lawn with a small patio area by the kitchen window. There is a small brick outbuilding within the rear garden and a timber shed.
This property is offered for sale with no onward chain. As well as providing a lovely home within a thriving village, this property would also make a wonderful weekend retreat as a second home.
