Situated in a popular Cotswold village to the west of Cirencester and enjoying a rural setting with wonderful far reaching views over The Golden Valley is this pretty detached natural stone cottage, originally 2 dwellings and which has since been extended and formed into one home with flexible living accommodation arranged over 3 floors designed to take the full advantage of the views. The cottage still retains many period features including stone walls and beams and the extension includes an imaginative semi-circular stone wall with a cone shaped roof above creating an attractive first floor sitting room with full height beamed ceiling. The kitchen/breakfast room has a large natural stone fire place with fitted wood burner creating a lovely hub to this property and leads through to a large utility room with a walk in pantry. From the entrance hall access is gained to a ground floor bedroom with Jack and Jill bathroom and to the first floor a further bedroom, dining room with an additional staircase down to the kitchen and up to a second floor en suite bedroom. In addition the property benefits from oil fired central heating, double glazing and a mains water softener.
