Vendors' thoughts: "We have loved living in this beautiful home and have spent many happy years here.It is full of character and we love its original features. When we installed the wood burner, we even discovered an original arched lintel which was a exciting for the fitter as it was for us! Kemble is a fantastic village to live in and we have made many friends here.We will miss this house but will take with us lots of wonderful memories. Our youngest daughter loves her bedroom so much that she wants to take it with her when we move!"
In a nutshell: Superb location, beautifully bright and light throughout and fabulous period features.
188 Station Road is a late 19th Century semi-detached Cotswold cottage superbly located in the heart of Kemble village.
Bright and light throughout, careful thought has been put into creating welcoming spaces and plenty of discreet storage. The house benefits from many period features such as cast iron fireplaces upstairs and original Victorian doors.
The sitting room with its wood burner is lovely and cosy and the window overlooking the front garden bathes the room in natural light.
The adjacent kitchen/dining room, with access to the rear garden, flows beautifully and offers ample storage and worktop space. It is a room which works perfectly both for everyday family life and for hosting family and friends.
The ground floor also has a handy boot room, ideal for muddy wellies after a long country walk!
Upstairs, there are three bedrooms and a family bathroom. The rooms are spacious and inviting with plenty of built-in storage.
Outside, the landscaped south-facing garden to the front is predominantly laid to lawn with colourful herbaceous borders and a delightful seating area. This is a fabulous spot in which to relax for a BBQ and enjoy al fresco dining in the summer. The enclosed rear garden provides further outdoor space and a useful outbuilding and garden store. The driveway offers off-road parking for two cars.
