The hamlet of Old Brookend is surrounded by countryside and is about 2 miles north of Berkeley, which is a pretty and thriving market town well known for its historic castle. Bemerton Cottage is believed to be 300 years old and is situated towards the outskirts of Old Brookend. It has lovely open views over the surrounding countryside.The present owners purchased the property in 2013 and have since carried out a number of attractive improvements that have carefully blended the traditional with the contemporary. The accommodation is tastefully decorated in a modern colour scheme. The rooms are light and the interior has a warm and friendly atmosphere.The original cottage was extended at the rear to capture the view and to provide a stunning sitting/dining room with two roof lanterns in a vaulted ceiling, wood floor in a herringbone design, a raised fireplace fitted with a gas effect log fire, and French doors which open to the garden. In the dining end is an illuminated original well which is glass covered. A superb bespoke wood painted kitchen was installed. There is an island unit with breakfast bar and integrated appliances include a Rangemaster gas cooker and dishwasher. There is under floor heating, vaulted ceiling with exposed roof trusses and bi-fold doors open to the garden.Off the kitchen and dining area is the family room with fireplace fitted with a log burning stove.
