Vendors' thoughts: "Witts cottage was the first house we looked at on our house search and immediately fell in love with it. It is a charming Cotswold cottage that has a fantastic location, easy access to the village pub, as well as being conveniently placed for Cirencester and the wider area. The garden has been priceless to us and has provided our daughter with endless hours of fun and the space to take her first steps. There is also a great local community and it will be with a very heavy heart that we will be leaving the village."
In a nutshell: A superb cottage in an idyllic village setting.
Witts Cottage is a very pretty quintessential Grade II Listed Cotswold cottage located only a short walk from the heart of Bibury. Beautifully positioned on Arlington Green, the owners have been mindful to create a welcoming and cosy home.
The kitchen/breakfast room, with electric cream Aga, is clearly the heart of the house and a great room in which to entertain family and friends with French doors leading through to the garden room. Both rooms are bright and light and flow beautifully creating a great feeling of space.
The living room with inglenook fireplace and wood burner is a cosy room in which to relax and lovely and warm in the colder months. Perfect for unwinding with a good book. A study, adjacent to the living room, is ideal for working from home and a handy utility room and cloakroom are great additiosn to the ground floor living space.
Upstairs there are three bedrooms, two doubles and a single, and a family bathroom.
Outside, the garden is predominantly laid to lawn, interspersed with herbaceous borders and enclosed with a pretty Cotswold stone wall. Generous and delightful, the garden is a fabulous asset to this cottage, on the edge of the village, and a haven of peace and tranquillity. The terrace is perfect for enjoying the summer sunshine and for al fresco dining. Sheds offer plenty of storage for garden tools and private parking for two cars is to the side of the cottage.
