Vendors' thoughts: "A remarkably unique, picturesque, tranquil and friendly Cotswold enclave. This cottage has in every aspect ticked all the boxes for us."
In a nutshell: Quintessential Cotswold living at it's very best! A deceptively spacious Cotswold cottage with gorgeous living space.
Greengage Cottage is a beautiful Cotswold village house which has been a loving family home for the past decade or so. The front door opens into the entrance hall which leads through to the reception rooms.
The kitchen/dining room is clearly the heart of the house and wonderful room in which to entertain family and friends. The kitchen is bright and light and superbly equipped to provide ample worktop and storage space. The island is ideal for morning coffees and the dining area works perfectly for both informal everyday dining as well as dinner parties with friends. French doors lead to the delightful enclosed garden.
The sitting room, with views over the village, and living room, with garden views, are both fabulous rooms in which to relax and unwind and the wood burner in the sitting room offers extra warmth in the colder months.
The ground floor also has a handy cloakroom/utility room.
Upstairs there are three bedrooms and two bathrooms, one being en suite. All the rooms have been carefully laid out to provide discreet storage and welcoming spaces. The impressive galleried landing offers a wonderful feeling of space and allows for an abundance of natural light.

The garage provides secure covered parking and work space with further parking available on the private driveway.
