Vendors' thoughts: "We fell in love with the tranquility at Rose Cottage and its heritage. We delight especially in hearing birdsong and horses' hooves. The village has a strong sense of community and feels a 'real' place rather than a tourist destination. Raising a glass of red around the fire or dining in the garden in convivial company is one of life's great pleasures. My great wish from Sydney is that the new owners adore it and enjoy it as much as we have."
In a nutshell: Quintessential Cotswold cottage charm with spectacular gardens.
Rose Cottage is a stunning quintessential Grade II Listed Cotswold stone cottage. Superbly positioned in one of the prettiest villages the Cotswolds has to offer, the owner has been mindful to retain many of the Cottage’s original period features to create a welcoming home full of charm and character.
The ground floor comprises a bright and light kitchen/ breakfast room, perfect for informal dinners and quiet morning coffees with the adjacent dining room adapting beautifully for entertaining and more formal dinner parties. The snug is perfect for cosy winter evenings in front of a good movie and is a quiet corner of the house. The sitting room is ideal for larger gatherings and with the impressive inglenook fireplace and wood burner is superb for hunkering down after a long winter’s country walk.
A handy utility room and downstairs cloakroom with shower are useful additions to the ground floor living space.
Upstairs, there are four bedrooms and two bathrooms, each with views overlooking the gardens and village. The bedrooms are beautifully proportioned and offer good ceiling height.
Outside the terrace is ideal for al fresco dining in the summer months and quiet garden corners with views over the village are perfect for enjoying peaceful sundowners. The delightful gardens are both impressive and elegant with tiered terraces, lawned areas and stunning water features. A substantial timber outbuilding provides garaging and workshop space and offers superb potential for conversion to provide additional accommodation subject to obtaining the necessary planning consents. The driveway provides ample parking.
