Vendors' thoughts: "We first fell in love with Christmas Cottage and it’s beautiful garden many years ago when walking the lanes. We hadn’t realised it was there, as it is quite hidden. We will be sad to see it go, as we love it!"
In a nutshell: Idyllic Cotswold cottage living. The views are just spectacular and Frampton Mansell is a superb village.
Christmas Cottage is a beautiful period Cottage full of charm and character. The open plan living space on the ground floor flows superbly with French doors leading from the kitchen to the terrace and garden beyond.
The kitchen/ breakfast room is laid out to provide good storage and work top space with plenty of natural light. The Sitting room is spacious yet also cosy with an impressive Inglenook fireplace with wood burner, ideal for providing great warmth during the colder months. Dual aspect windows allow for plenty of natural light.
The first floor comprises two bedrooms and a bathroom. There are two further bedrooms and a bathroom on the second floor. All the rooms are bathed in natural light and offer stunning countryside views. The wood floors, windows seats and exposed beams add wonderful character to this cottage.
There is great scope to extend the cottage subject to obtaining the necessary planning consents.
Outside the garden is predominantly laid to lawn which extends to the front and rear of the house. The garden overlooks the village and neighbouring countryside and really is the idyllic village setting. The terrace is ideal for al fresco dining and summer BBQs.
