Vendors' thoughts: "We have loved our time at St Anthony's Cottage. The house is so filled with sunlight and the views are wonderful. Its has been lovely sitting out on the terrace in the summer and just relaxing in the garden or pottering with the vegetable beds and little orchard. The apples are to die for! The village is so beautiful and has been very welcoming to us. There are plenty of pretty walks on the doorstep. It's lovely to go for a Sunday walk through the fields ending up at the Wild Carrot for a treat! We will miss this little slice of heaven."
In a nutshell: Idyllic, quintessential Cotswolds. A heavenly home.
St Anthony’s Cottage is a haven of peace and tranquillity in the pretty village of Beverston. The living spaces are bright and light and are superbly laid out making this a welcoming and comfortable home. Renovated to a high standard, the cottage is presented immaculately and is full of charm and character.
The sitting room is the heart of the house and a wonderful room in which to relax and unwind. The impressive inglenook fireplace with wood burner is a superb feature of this room and the fire makes it wonderfully warm in the winter for cosy nights in. A former bread oven is used as an exceptional wood store for the wood burner.
The kitchen has been thoughtfully designed to offer worktop space and discreet storage, with further storage in the Parlour Farm designed larder cupboards. The kitchen equipped with the necessary modern appliances and French doors lead to the terrace and garden, allowing for indoor/ outdoor living in the warmer months. The utility is perfect for muddy wellies and for keeping the washing out of the way!
Upstairs there are two bedrooms and a bathroom. The bedrooms have lovely views over the garden and village and there is plenty of discreet storage.
Outside, the garden, enclosed by hand-crafted larch fencing, is predominantly laid to lawn, interspersed with pretty herbaceous borders. Careful thought and attention have been put in to creating an elegant and private garden with colourful blooms and vibrant trees. The terrace is ideal for al fresco dining and sundowners.
Over the driveway, there is a further private garden which is laid to lawn with raised vegetable beds, three very productive apple trees, and a paved terrace overlooking the adjoining fields. The perfect spot to end the day with a G & T!
There is a store which comes in handy for garden tools and garage with private parking in front.
In 2021, planning permission for a single storey extension was granted to create a dining/garden room and install a downstairs WC (ref: 21/04053/FUL).
