In a nutshell: A rare cottage with fantastic scope for renovation. This cottage is a true gem with so much soul and character.
Swyre Farm Cottages is a quintessential 19th Century Cotswold stone former pair of cottages converted many years ago into one dwelling. Having been in the same ownership for almost 50 years, the house now offers much scope to create a very special home.
This beautiful cottage is bursting with charm, character and original features including beautiful wide floorboards, exposed beams and generally has a warm and welcoming feel to it.
Currently configured to provide two reception rooms on the ground floor, a utility room and a large bathroom. The oil-fired racing green Aga in the kitchen is a fabulous feature and offers great warmth in the colder months alongside the wood burner in the sitting room at the other end of the house.
Upstairs there are four bedrooms, one with an en suite shower room.
Outside the garden offers the green-fingered enthusiast a great opportunity to create a haven of peace and tranquility. At the top of the garden is a former stable block which could offer a very useful footprint for further accommodation subject to obtaining the necessary planning consents. There is parking in front and to the side of the house.
