The property was renovated, landscaped and a two-storey oak framed extension added in 2018. The extension is of architectural note and has been nominated as best extension or alteration to an existing home in The West of England LABC Building Excellence Awards 2019 which is due to take place later this year.
The property is entered through an oak door into a welcoming entrance hall with limestone flooring which continues through to the impressive kitchen with an excellent range of painted solid wood base and wall cabinets along with an island unit all finished with oak work tops. There is a double Belfast sink, electric range oven and integral dishwasher. Off the kitchen is the bright and welcoming dining room with oak bi-fold doors leading out onto the decking area in the rear garden. The flow from the kitchen to the dining room has created both a great family space for day to day living and the perfect place for entertaining too. Off the kitchen there is an extremely useful utility/boot room with space and plumbing for a washing machine, base cabinets with a stainless-steel sink and drainer inset into the oak work tops. Access to the downstairs cloakroom is off the boot room and an external door leading to rear garden. Adjoining the kitchen is a further reception room with oak floor boards currently used as a snug/playroom.
The original hallway to the cottage has stairs leading to first floor with useful under stairs storage and an external door leading to the front of the property. The charming sitting room is situated to the other side of the entrance hall and has a triple aspect with French doors leading out to the rear terrace, oak floor boards and a wealth of character features including exposed beams. The focal point of the room is the open fireplace with log burner inset.
The master bedroom is light and airy thanks to the vaulted ceiling with exposed oak beams, double aspect and the stunning oak framed picture window with views across the garden and valley beyond. There is a tiled en suite shower room with walk in shower, wash hand basin set on a vanity unit, low level WC and useful storage.
There are three further double bedrooms on this floor along with a family bathroom which comprises a bath with overhead shower, wash hand basin set within a vanity unit and low level WC.
Approached onto a gravel driveway there is off road parking for several vehicles and planning permission is in place to erect a two-bay oak frame car port. The gardens are edged by a low Cotswold stone wall at the front and the rear enclosed garden is fenced with an attractive woven hazel fence with a pedestrian gate from the driveway to the rear garden.
The landscaped gardens have been terraced to provide a paved terrace and raised decking area perfect for al fresco dining. Steps lead down into the lower garden which is predominantly laid to lawn and continues to one side of the house.
