Laurel Cottage is a beautifully renovated Cotswold Stone cottage exuding charm, character and style. Elegantly refurbished, whilst maintaining many original features, this is an attractive and welcoming home.
The kitchen / breakfast room with a wood burner set into the original fireplace is a lovely room through which to enter the cottage. The heart of the home, with views overlooking the garden, this is a wonderful space to entertain friends and family. The adjacent sitting room with an open fireplace and a delightful window seat overlooking the garden, is a fabulous room to retire to and relax. Through a hallway is the study, a bright and cosy room, ideal as a home office or equally could make a wonderful playroom. A useful cloakroom / utility room is also accessed from the hallway.
The lighting throughout the cottage has been very thoughtfully designed and offers a contemporary aspect to the cottage’s charm. The staircase with each step lit up, leads to the first floor which consists of a spacious landing with Velux window allowing an abundance of natural light, three comfortable double bedrooms, one with en suite shower room, and a family bathroom with twin wash basins. Each bedroom is bright and light and has wonderful views over the garden and neighbouring countryside, as does the dual aspect bathroom.
The vendor has obtained planning permission for a new oak framed and glass extension which would create a new kitchen for the property, connected to the house with a frameless glass link, which would itself form the new entrance hall.
Outside, a two-storey outbuilding with shower room currently doubles as an office and is capable of offering additional annexe accommodation. A two-storey triple garage, built in 2011, sits at the entrance to the property. The first floor can easily be adapted to provide additional annexe accommodation, subject to obtaining the necessary consents, and has abundant natural light from the six Velux windows.
The terraced garden sits to the front of the property and is a haven of peace and tranquility. A natural spring water feature is a stunning creative aspect of the garden and a variety of herbaceous borders offer colour and character. Beautifully positioned, the terrace overlooks the garden with open countryside views to one side and village views to the other. Set back from the road, double black iron gates open onto the driveway, which itself offers ample parking.
