Vendors' thoughts: "The cottage has been the perfect home. It allows you to feel as much a part of village life as you would like as well as feeling you’re in the heart of the Cotswolds. The house was beautifully thought out when originally built, some simple renovations to update it and the creation of an informal, relaxed garden have helped create a home we have loved living in and working from. Excellent nearby walks, a thriving village community, the shop, school and of course the train station have made Kemble an enjoyable and easy place to be a part of, it will be hard to find a home that offers quite as much."
In a nutshell: A superb village house in a great location with a gorgeous garden!
182 Windmill Road is a pretty Cotswold cottage superbly located in the heart of Kemble close to local amenities. Bright and light throughout, careful thought has been put into creating welcoming spaces and plenty of discreet storage.
The sitting room with its wood burner is a lovely and cosy room in the colder months and the window overlooking the front garden offers ample natural light.
The adjacent kitchen/ dining room flows beautifully with the kitchen being designed to offer storage, work top space and views out to the delightful garden. The striking royal blue Everhot cooker adds great warmth in the winter and is perfect for slow cooking a roast whilst on a Sunday walk!
The ground floor also has a handy cloakroom and a boot room, ideal for muddy wellies!
Upstairs, there are three bedrooms and a bathroom. Built-in wardrobes offer ample discreet storage.
Outside, the front and rear landscaped gardens are predominantly laid to lawn interspersed with colourful herbaceous borders and seating areas. Beautifully designed the rear garden is a fabulous spot in which to relax for a BBQ with family and friends and enjoy al fresco dining in the summer. The driveway to the side of the house offers private parking.
Planning permission has been granted to significantly enlarge the property with an oak framed garden room and porch. This would greatly enhance the living space.
