Approached from the main road from a short pathway and steps leading to this beautiful detached Grade II listed cottage that has been completely renovated and beautifully presented throughout. Offering accommodation over three floors.

This is a Chocolate box cottage with the most incredible views across the valley from South facing gardens. On entering the gate you immediately want to turn round and just take in the beautiful view across the valley. The garden is presented in a cottage style with a wealth of planting and apple trees, one of which is over 100 years old. You are greeted by a lovely seat on approach with the name of the cottage engraved in it. All the window frames are painted in a very pale green and compliment the property and the doors sit central to the cottage.

Entering into the entrance hall with wooden panelling, stunning exposed stonework and doors that lead to all receptions, the kitchen and a stable door to the side leading to the gardens. A bespoke fitted kitchen with Beech worktops, space for table and chairs and a beautiful fireplace with a period wood burning stove inset. A Belfast sink where you can stand and admire the view out of the window. The Sitting room has double doors leading to the garden, exposed stonework and a further log burner inset to the fireplace with Parquet flooring. Dining room also with a feature fireplace and delightful views across the valley.

To the first floor, a delightful family bathroom complete with a roll top bath and wooden panelling feels very relaxing with a glorious range fireplace and being a very light space. One single bedroom and two double bedrooms, one having a staircase leading to a fantastic hobby or play room. A further staircase from the landing leads to the master suite which will provide a wow factor when you walk in, boasting a wealth of exposed beams to a vaulted ceiling, steps lead up from what could be a dressing area up to a lovely space to put a double bed. There is an area of restricted head height in this space, but has the most delightful beams.

Outside to the side of the property, a pergola over the terrace ideal for alfresco dining with climbing plants provide shade in those summer months. Also a stone backdrop with steps leading to a small workshop/utility room with flagstone flooring. This opens to the front gardens taking in this incredible view. A side gate leads up steps with railway sleepers and chippings to a raised terrace that overlooks the roofline of the house across the valley, perfect for that first glass of wine on a summers evening. An area of lawn and planting with a backdrop of woodland behind. The owners have informed me they regularly see the deer just sitting in the garden.

The cottage is a short distance from the very well regarded Lavender Bake House and a short drive to Eastcombe, Bussage and Chalford for schools and other amenities and within 3 miles of Stroud centre and station.

A stunning example of a period home exceptionally well maintained and great space and light.

AMENITIES Chalford is a Cotswold village of older cottage homes and grander houses built as a result of the wool trade that thrived in the valley during the 17/18th Centuries. The village today displays much of its historic past and is served with amenities that include a community run general store, public house and two primary schools. Bus services provide access to the market towns of Cirencester & Stroud where a wide range of facilities can be found with intercity train services connecting with London (Paddington) available at Stroud & Kemble. Road networks radiate from the area to Gloucester, Cheltenham, Bristol & Bath, all within a 15-30 mile radius.
