THE PROPERTY Special and unique are often overused when describing property however both are absolutely applicable to this wonderful home. Over their extensive period of ownership, the current vendors have lovingly created a stunning example of a period cottage in the Arts & Crafts style, which The Cotswolds is so famous for. The accommodation comprises a generous entrance hall, utility area, shower room, lovely sitting room with vaulted ceiling, dining room, bespoke hardwood kitchen, study/bedroom 3, landing with loft storage access, bathroom and two double bedrooms. All of this space is set off with a blend of period features and high quality modern carpentry. This love and care isn't limited to the Cottage, arguably the gardens are even more of a triumph. They boast a wonderful Japanese inspired courtyard with water feature, a range of mature specimen and fruit trees, beautiful well stocked beds and a large vegetable plot. The garden enjoys stunning views open open country. In addition it offers a range of outbuildings. These include three timber outbuildings, all of which are insulated and lined, with heating and lighting plus additional power points, a greenhouse with electricity and power points and auto-opening windows and a stone-built workshop which is fitted with daylight fluorescent lighting, power points providing heating and power sources for various machinery and tools. It is fitted with woodworking machinery and a bespoke dust extraction system. The front garden is enclosed by a stone wall and offers plentiful off road parking, gated side access to the rear, a stone-built log store and the smartest bin store I have ever seen. In all, Cobblers Cottage is a wonderful property which must be viewed to be appreciated.
