A detached four bedroom house in a quiet location with panoramic views across the surrounding countryside which forms part of The Cotswolds Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty
Rectory Cottage was built some 50 years ago and is not listed. It is set in a quiet position, with enviable views over the village and the surrounding countryside. The house has a light and airy feel with well-proportioned accommodation over two floors. The generous entrance hall leads to the dining room, utility room, shower room and kitchen, the latter of which has access to the cellar. The sitting room, which can be accessed from the hall or the kitchen, is full of character with exposed beams and a wood/coal burning stove and leads to a bright and sunny garden room with two sets of French doors leading into the garden. The four bedrooms are arranged over the first floor and include a generous principal bedroom with an en suite bathroom, a guest bedroom with an en suite shower room, and two further bedrooms. There is also a family bathroom on this level. Rectory Cottage has a gated driveway with ample parking and a double garage, over which is a room currently used as a home office but could be used as separate accommodation with a private entrance and shower room. The gardens and grounds are a significant feature of the house, with a large terrace leading from the rear of the house providing a tranquil setting to enjoy al fresco dining with beautiful views of the surrounding countryside. The remaining part of the garden is mainly lawned and bordered by various mature trees, plants, and shrubs. The heated swimming pool enjoys privacy and provides a place to relax away from the house.
