A beautiful Grade II listed Cotswold stone cottage, in the delightful village of Westonbirt, which has been fully restored, extended and has a large garden with outstanding views.

Nestled within the delightful village of Westonbirt, this quintessentially Cotswold Grade II listed cottage is surrounded by open fields and affords spacious living and beautiful gardens. The current owners have sympathetically restored and extended the cottage to create a lovely home.

This attractive cottage dates to the 1860's and is constructed of natural Cotswold stone with many of the original features still in place such as stone mullion leaded light windows and exposed timber beams, this has been combined with authentic salvaged wooden floors, latched doors and an oak staircase rising to the first floor.

Approached into the hallway where there is a downstairs cloakroom, this then opens into the light and airy sitting room with a feature fireplace and wood burning stove, the windows to the front have beautiful views across the fields. A door leads into the extended kitchen-diner–family room, there are a good range of cupboards and planned space for appliances, a useful breakfast bar for two and plenty of space for a dining table with French doors opening onto the sunny courtyard.

On the first floor there are two double bedrooms , each with built in storage and the master bedroom has a beautiful feature fireplace. The large bathroom has a bath with a white suite.

The property is approached off the road into a large driveway to the side of the house, this has ample parking for several vehicles, indeed the current owners have their motor home on the driveway, and gives access to the single garage which has light and power., with plenty of room for a workshop at one end. There is storage above the garage.

French doors from the kitchen lead out onto a lovely courtyard ideal for alfresco dining, with raised beds for herbs, a Cotswold stone shed and wood store. The tiered garden is south west facing with wonderful views over the countryside at the rear, the elevated part of the garden is a fabulous place to dine, overlooking the rear of the cottage and the fields beyond, and there is a thriving vegetable patch on the bottom tier. Behind the garage is a useful area for a washing line.
