  • Bedrooms: 2
Positioned within earshot of the gently cascading Blockley Brook which forms part of the rear boundary of the property's garden, this semi-detached, four storey, two double bedroomed village retreat is located at the fashionable Dovedale end of Blockley High Street and enjoys views over gardens towards open countryside to the rear.

Located on pedestrian Donkey Lane, only a few yards from the High Street, the property enjoys a secluded location with not only a rear patio but a triangular shaped lawned garden and a decking area for al fresco dining beside the brook.

Full of the innate character and charm of a period home, the property has many exposed oak beams, elm floorboards, exposed pointed stone walls and a very distinctive double bay window to the rear enjoying the best views.

The snug lower ground floor dining/kitchen has a range of built in appliances and bespoke units with granite style worktops.

The through living room on the ground floor has a substantial inglenook fireplace with a homely wood burning stove and the property is further warmed with gas fired central heating from a combination boiler.

There is a double bedroom and a bathroom on the first floor and a spacious master bedroom on the second floor with both bay and dormer windows.

The property is suitable for not only a main home, a supplementary home but also as a holiday cottage for investment purposes for which the property has been successfully used over many years.

Many walks can be enjoyed directly from the property, only a few hundred yards away in Dovedale woods and the high street is on a level position and is a short walk from the Crown Hotel and beyond lies the Great Western Arms and Blockley village shop and cafe, which doubles as a restaurant on Friday evenings.
